Summer's Gone So Fast
Just like that it feels like summer comes and goes. I know we have a good month of nice weather left here in Oregon, but the mornings are definitely starting to feel like fall. I even had to wear a long sleeve this week for one of my morning runs!
A few weeks ago, I was feeling like we had a lot I wanted to experience before the end of summer. So naturally, I wrote out a summer bucket list.
On the summer bucket list are things like: camping, adventure weekend in Bend, wood fired pizza, Em's baseball game, drinks at a few places in town, etc. With a little effort, we were able to knock out several of those things in just a few weeks.
Still dreaming about this pizza
After checking off a few things on the list, I feel a little better about summer coming to an end.
Eats as of late
I realized it's been a while since I've posted about what's on our plate these days. It's safe to say, there are a LOT of veggies and easy eats going on over here.
Our summer CSA delivery still comes every Friday and then it seems like a race to try to eat as many veggies as possible before the next Friday. But I'm not complaining.
I even tried out one of the recipes the farmer sent with one of our deliveries, kale sausage veggie pasta. We thought it could have used a bit more POP (like more fresh cherry tomatoes), but it was still fun to try a new recipe.
What I'm reading
More on this soon, but it's safe to say I love the overall tone of The Fire Starter Sessions. What I like about it so far is that she really gives you ownership of your future and goals, so if you're feeling stuck and as though this is what you "have to do," Danielle argues that's not the case. It's a fun read that can be digested in a few pages or a chapter or two at a time.
Still wearing lots of skirts. Already cringing at the thought of wearing full length pants soon. If you're a shortie with good pant recommendations, send 'em my way.

And finally, tomorrow I'll be running my third 50K on the McKenzie River!
I've tried to keep it pretty easy this week as I've had many a long race where I showed up at the start line decently sore. Tomorrow shouldn't be the case.
This week I've done three easy runs and a few yoga sessions at home. I've also ditched the weights and speed work this week, which I hope results in me able to hobble my way to mile 31.
Happy weekend to you!
