|Soaking up the sunny weekend with some lovely rides along Lake Washington.|
|Apple season is here in the state of Washington. I picked these lovely Gala's at Gerry's parents' house in Orondo over Labor Day. There were too many to eat plain, so I baked a Smitten Kitchen apple cake and shared it with my co-workers.|
|My new favorite morning snack: homemade granola from the dahlia bakery cookbook (birthday gift from my friend, Sarah).|
|Action shot from my favorite race not to race: Starcrossed! It's fun to watch and cheer from the beer garden. And it's also a good chance to catch up with cycling buddies. One of my friends who raced in the women's elite race AND the single speed race (where she placed 2nd) said she'd teach me some skills and let me borrow her bike someday. I said, "not until my tri season is over." CX looks like a blast, though I'm afraid it would take away from the lazy off season I'm planning.|
I hope you're all having a wonderful week as we transition into fall. And although I try not to gush over my sponsors too much (to the point of it sounding insincere), I have a true sense of pride today in seeing the enthusiasm Oiselle has created garnered for women's running.
PS - something for October and November: coffeeneuring
