It's been an amazing Autumn for running, lately. The temps have been slightly about normal and we've had very little rain. I really love running during this time of the year for a couple of reasons, one being the weather. But also, I love the fact that the racing season is over, and you can simply run just to run. There's a difference between running and training, and it's nice to get out of the training mode for a bit and just enjoy the run for what it is.
That being said, I'm also really looking forward to some winter running! I love the sound of that first crunch of snow underfoot, the completely different scenery along the trails and the soft, forgiving surface. The video below, of Tony Krupicka, describes it well.
