Another Great Fall Run

This weekend, Hubs and I ventured up to Northern Ontario to visit his family. We went out yesterday for a 21K(13 mile) run, and I brought the camera along to take some pictures of the beautiful fall scenery. It was very warm this weeken, around 24oC (~75F), an absolutely perfect day for a leisurely taper run!



These deer are wild but come to this property because the owner leaves them apples.




It was a really hilly route with a net elevation gain of 400 ft, but well worth the effort. This lake marked a turn around point. Hubs and I stopped for a gel and took some pictures. The pictures really don't do it justice.



Gliding downhill at this point, the skyline was aglow with fiery reds, oranges and yellows.





When we returned from the run, we had a turkey dinner, complete with red wine, of course! LOL. It was so good! Why can't every weekend be a long weekend?

Well we are home now, and as I reminisced about my fabulous weekend, we had a glorious sunset behind our house. I took this picture from the deck off off our kitchen.



Congratulations to everyone who ran this weekend. I hope to catch up on everyone's blogs soon. Thanks for reading and have a great week!

As I'm not looking forward to running tonight (I prefer the early, early mornings), your pictures made me excited to get for a run on such a beautiful day.
