Spinning my Wheels to Eat the Pumpkin...

Now that my race is over, I am having a very hard time motivating myself to run long distances. Anything over 3 or 4 miles over the past 2 weeks has just been soooo hard to do. I guess I didn't realize how much having that "end of summer goal" helped to keep me moving. It doesn't help that I've had to run while pushing at least one child 99.9% of the time. After 30 minutes of pushing 60 lbs., I am pretty much all set.
In addition, what are with all the fall goodies??? This time of year is worse for me than the holidays EVER are. I love anything apple or pumpkin flavored. I eat apples with LOTS of caramel apple dip! I eat pumpkin muffins, pumpkin ice cream and pumpkin cake! I have violent urges for Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks every day at 3 p.m! I can't say NO to the damn pumpkin!
So between the lack of motivation to run and the eating...I am feeling like a big ole sack of Honey Crisp apples. Oh yeah, I love those too.
