I’m up north at Lovejoy Pond (it’s really a lake) in Maine for the last two weeks of summer. Fall has come a little early to this quaint part of the country. Waking up to the singing loons and 50 degrees is a refreshing change from the heat and humidity of Charlotte in late summer. With the exception of the extreme hills, this is my favorite place to run.
Running in Maine is a wonderful foretaste of what is to come in the fall to North Carolina. I, for one, am excited! The greenway near my house will be full of runners training for the many races in various parts of the country from October – December. Cross country runners will be lining up at high school 5K races. Many of those summer treadmill runners will hit the pavement when the air gets colder and the trees start changing. Running is contagious in autumn.
Where will you be running this fall?
