First time.

Lots of firsts for me this weekend. First time in Syracuse in the fall.

Green Lakes State Park

First time at the LaFayette Apple Festival.
 Jabba the Pumpkin

Carbo-loading with apple fritters.

First time needing to pee in the woods during a run.

Finding privacy was a challenge at Old Erie Canal State Historic Park.

First time being heckled during a run. Said I was cheating for walking. He's lucky he didn't end up in the bottom of here:

No seriously, it's a good thing he caught me at mile 19. Too exhausted to be violent.

First time running 20 miles. I was only supposed to go 14-16, but around mile 8 I decided that this needed to be my last super long run. It was slow. After mile 15, it was painful. It was the first time I had to walk for a solid mile during a run just to keep my sanity.

 Time to start tapering!
