    Thanks for the link love Lisa and I’m glad you were pain free in the legs! I’m not all about the rower either, not quite the same but you’ll get there.

    I listen to a lot of Indigo Girls and Jewel – is that lame? hahaha oh well, it’s what I like to listen to when my husband isn’t around to complain.

    The whole free-weight area of gyms has always intimidated me. However, today I took an aerial yoga class which felt totally normal. Different strokes for different folks, right? 🙂

    Great job!

    Halloween and autumn are definitely my favorites. However this year I only have a few sweaters since nothing fits! Haha.

    PS I totally love your HRM. I’m still learning all the goodies on mine and I’m not sure if mine can time and do calories. Who knows, heh.

    I LOVE fall and pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin pie, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin pancakes and pumpkin scented candles. Notice a common theme?

    Got your Halloween costume planned out yet? It’s so fun!!

    Oh man, I’m in Southern California right now for the rest of the month, and I’m totally missing Portland. However, I do know that once the rain and fog roll in, its gonna be a while until it rolls out;) Way to kill it with the weights. I got really into strength training after I hurt my ankle, and I gotta tell you, it may not give you a runners high, but I love how weights shape your body and make you stronger than you realized you were to begin with!

    Oh and Ps…. I’m jammin’ to a “Rumpshaker” mix on Pandora. Think early 90’s hip hop 🙂

      Nothing better than 90’s hip hop!! I’m looking forward to this time to try new workouts. I’d never take a break from running– unless it was forced on me!

    LOVE the weight lifting happening here!!! I was totally intimidated by the weight area at first too. But I inched my way in there with just one exercise a time and now I totally dominate it 😉

    OH MAN– Damn It Feels Good to be a Gangsta by the Geto Boys is my cool-down song when I run! It’s about 5 minutes, and it always makes me feel good as I walk it off and prepare to stretch! 🙂
