Okay, here is another song that you must absolutely add to your running playlist. It has been my repeat running song this whole weekend, and when I'm driving and when I'm cooking. So I'm totally obsessed with it. It's Capital Cities' "Safe and Sound." Check it out!
Hal had a scheduled 4 mile run today for me. I have to tell you that today was honestly my favourite type of running weather. It was definitely a crisp fall day with sunshine to spare. How badly do you want to run on THIS trail?!
Yes, you can be truly amazed. It is THIS beautiful. :)

It was a totally awesome run. I managed to chick three men who were out running together....hehe. So of course then I had to maintain my pace so they didn't catch me, lol.
I didn't even want to go home it was such an ideal weather running day. Okay, I know, enough about the great trail and weather........but it is spectacular, just sayin'.
And no Saturday afternoon in October would be complete without a tall PSL from Starbucks! This drink literally has my name written all over it.....haha.
Miss Lola went to her groomer on Saturday to get a face trim. Look at those big beautiful brown eyes. :)
Our Saturday night dinner was a super fabulous Cashew Chicken recipe. I could eat this until it comes out of my ears. So good. You can get the recipe here.
Today's long run was a 12 miler. I always for some reason round it up to 12.5 miles, which makes for an even 20km.
Well, yes it was another awesome day for running. I even had to whip out these bad boys since the air was a bit frigid.
I was feeling like a rock star clicking along at sub 8 min/mile paces until 4.5 miles. That's when I had a brand new to me type of running injury. :S Bam! Right in the face. A bee! And yes, it DID sting me....right below my bottom lip. I am 31 years old and 11 months and this is my first bee sting EVER! I couldn't even get it off of my face, lol....I had to whip it off with my hand. That's when the throbbing and swelling began. :( I called Courteney, while still running, and she told me that it should be okay but to put butter on when I arrived home. So I continued to run the remainder of my run with a swollen lip......what a sight. It was still a great run though, despite the bee sting. :S
I was very relieved to return home with no swelling.....My face is still throbbing though :(

Now go enjoy the rest of your weekend and watch out for those bees! ;)
