This is Montana and October so really it could snow any day and last Wednesday we got our first snow of the season. It of course melted but it did get really foggy and cold Saturday morning and left the plants coated in frost. It was really pretty.
I had a beautiful run and with the sun shining, barely any wind, and temps on the high thirties it was nearly perfect running over the weekend. Yesterday I ran in the wind and the rain for 6 miles but then the rain went away and I had five more miles of running with the wind that felt really good. Felt strange to run in mud after such a dry dry summer. Being a farmers daughter I know better than to complain too hard about rain. :)
The hard part about this time of year is trying to figure out how to dress. A little wind can make a big difference as well as whether or not the sun is out. I prefer to start out over vs under layered so that I can shed as I go. I really hate being cold. I tend to just drop clothes as I go if I am doing an out and back and then pick them back up on the way back. I usually end up shedding my coat before the first mile. I love that I can drop it and know it will be there when I get back.
Last Friday night Cola managed to have a run in with a skunk. I am not sure of the details as I was inside cleaning and he was out in the dark. I just know that as I was vacuuming I started to catch a whiff of skunk.
My husband let Cola inside and eww! Cola spent a few nights out in the doghouse!
