Is it Fall yet?

According to me?, YES!

"How do I know?" you ask.  It certainly is not because everyone on Facebook is posting how pumpkin is single handedly making or breaking their day, week, or month.  If I see another post about how some sort of pumpkin coffee has saved the lives of children or how it has ruined their willpower, it'll be too soon!  It's not when the kids go back to school because that doesn't affect me much anymore.  And it's certainly not the calendar!  I've lived in New England long enough to know that weather does not get confined by the month written at the top of the page.

For me, Fall is officially signaled when I begin digging out the cooler weather clothes; the sweatshirts, hats, pants, the running gloves, headband, etc.  Once that's started, no matter how many more warm weather spells Ms. Mother Nature decides to pepper in, it is Fall. 


1.  What signals the start of Fall for you?

2.  Do you have a favorite month?
Fall is my favorite.  It's still warm enough to do things outdoors, but cool enough to have an excuse to bundle up.  The best of both worlds!

3.  What is your favorite part of Fall?
I do love pumpkin, but I think I now look forward to the change in training focus.  Triathlons only go until late summer here, so I get my break now with marathon and ultra training.  

4.  What's the weather like where you're at?  
Have the cool weather clothes come out yet?

Being in Aus, it's the summer clothes starting to come out. Plus being in the more tropical weather, it's heating up - today is 32 degrees c.

Favourite season is autumn in Melbourne where all the beautiful old tree leaves turn orange, red and yellow.
