Autumn, the year’s last, loveliest smile.

I'm in heaven! I love this time of year. The cool evenings, turning of the leaves, effortless runs at a brisk pace...

I could go on for days about the things I love about Autumn. But I won't.

So, I last left you bidding adieu to my long time home of Savannah, GA. I have spent the last 13 years, just over a 1/3 of my life in Savannah. I am not one to look back to the past for too long...So we move forward to my new home.

Smyrna! No, not the ancient Greek city, a smallish town just outside of Atlanta, GA. This location is perfect, central to everything I need/want in my life. Work is an easy 30 minute commute. There is a county indoor pool 7 miles away. (swimming will soon become part of the cross training) Trails e'rewhere!

Speaking of which, I went out to Kennesaw Mountain this past Tuesday and joined up with the GUTS runners for their weekly run. A little more than 5 1/2 miles on the trails out there was just what the doctor ordered...I can't wait to get more involved with this group.

Stay tuned for an update on the Mystery Mountain Marathon and also my crewing/pacing for Psyche at Pinhoti!

I used to work in Smyrna.
But not anymore.

I'm taking it you don't have to work downtown or anywhere near an interstate since you described the commute as easy.

Have fun with the ultra club!

Sounds like you've traded one idyllic setting for another if those photos are any indication.

Agreed- Fall is the best season! Glad to hear you're settling in nicely. You're in for a real treat with those GUTS folks! I'm jealous!!

Pinhoti's around the corner, baybeeeee! You ready? I'm ready!It's gonna be amazing FO SHO!!!

Hope Da Moove was Smoove.

Fall ... Meh. Turns into winter too soon, the Bastard Season! I prefer Spring.

But Fall's cool too.

Man, I would LURVE to see the Phils get into the WS against the Rangers! Lee v. Halladay! What a match-up!

We have H2O (Halladay, Hamels, Oswalt), which I love, but I STILL miss me some Cliff Lee! I have a bet with Ian that he'll beat whoever he faces in the Yankees series.

Lee was MADE for the playoffs. Halladay's better, but Lee?

Wow, I love that photo! I'm a big fan of fall too! Sounds as though you've made a beautiful move and will enjoy your new home!!

I love the fall. I lived in Ohio for the first 32 years of my life, and now live in Florida. While Florida is a tropical paradise, it is missing the fall season I love so much.
