I meant to get out of the house earlier to get in a nice trail run before yoga, but I let emails, tea and dog walking consume me for a while. After all, that's what weekends are all about.
Luckily, I still managed to get downtown about 45 minutes before yoga so I set out to run Skinner's Butte - the only hill near downtown and the yoga studio.
I cranked out 30 minutes of running through the beautiful leaves and up the hills until I had a bird's eye view of the city.
Did I mention I'm a little smitten with the fall leaves around here?
After my little jaunt up and around the butte, I went to Kira's power yoga class (always challenging in a sneaky way) and got my butt kicked. Then it was back home to grab the pooch and take her on a little hike/run, followed by a bath at the local "suds 'em yourself" place.
I'm now laying on the couch with Michigan vs. Illinois football on in the background. As much as a morning outside energizes me, it also wipes me out! While I don't really pay attention to games I'm not interested in, it's a calming noise to listen to.
Plans for the evening are to hit up a local coffee stout festival (hoping the coffee wakes me up) and then watch the Oregon Ducks take on the Stanford Cardinal. Goooo Ducks!
Need a tasty treat? I made these vegan rice krispies w/ peanut butter and dark chocolate on top last night for Lindsey and her boyfriend who came over for dinner. They didn't turn out super sticky (or nearly as beautiful as Spa Bettie's), but man they taste good.
I hope you're having an awesome weekend.
