Weekend up | down(s)

Ran 18 miles.
Ate movie popcorn for dinner and snuck bin candy for dessert. 
Went to Bushwick yoga and a doughnut.
Made apple chipotle chili and a pumpkin waffle. 
Sat on some steps and shared a cookie the size of my face.

Life right now = running and eating like a 16-year-old boy. I can’t say that I hate it.

& Fall. I want to pretend I’m highly engaged with college football. I want my life to smell like cinnamon. I want to spend afternoons stepping on leaves and buying doughnuts. There is no better time of year and I’m going to try to suck every last minute out of it. 
Fall Bucket List (v3)2012 & 2013
Run the marathon 
Get a massage (see #1)
Bake a pie
Train upstate for a hike + [pumpkin] beer
Read a bunch of new books. Maybe in the park. Maybe with coffee and a doughnut. 
Take a new class (cooking? coding? pole dancing?)
Join a new group (alum? running? unmarried child-free Brooklynites?)
Find 10 ways to pay it forward
Eat at: Freeman’s, Egg, Spotted Pig, Dover
TBD
I. Can’t. Wait.

Dear
Friends
Family
Dates
Coworkers
Strangers I pass on the street: 

So many apologies. I’ve become that person who only talks about running. The marathon owns me a little lot.  

I’m entirely self aware but sadly I can’t do a damn thing to curb the behavior. Really, I get it. 

Please give me until Nov. 2 and we’ll return to regularly scheduled programming.

TY. 

PS: Tumblr runners: I’ve hit a wall with training and there are weeks to go. Hit me up (julia.forrest.costa @ gmail) if you’re in for a mile…or two…or a dozen…or a dozen and some change. Please?
