Fall is in the air, and I love the comfort of autumn harvests. My meals this week are inspired by some lovely vegan blogs I follow. I live that the colors of harvest food fit so well in the season, I love the oranges and browns and greens!

I'm going to a Teacher Education Summit in Towson during the day, so this will be a "fall back" running week. According to my running plan (No meat athlete), I should incorporate a few of these into my training to minimize the risk of injury. Also, I have noticed that when I have multiple long distance days in a week, it impacts my sleep.

This month, my college is sponsoring a Step-by-step program, trying to encourage everyone to get in at least 10,000 steps each day. One of the best parts about it is that they're encouraging everyone to get out and walk around campus, which is absolutely gorgeous this time of year. If you're creative about visiting the maintainance building, the softball and baseball fields, the children's center, the driver's Ed parking lot, and are willing to zig and zag on the sidewalks, you can get a nice 3-4 miles covered on campus.
I wear a pedometer when I run, mostly to track my distances, but I'd gotten out of the habit of wearing it all day. The official step count starts on Monday, October 7, but I plan on tracking my steps all month. Below are my step counts thus far. I did not start wearing my pedometer all day until Thursday, October 3.
Oct 1- 4301
Oct 2- 14428
Oct 3- 10194
Oct 4- 18679
Oct 5- 22346
As for reading, I've been struggling. I was re-reading Garp, because John Irving generally re-triggers me on reading, but it's been tough! This week, I plan on reading City of Truth, and Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House. Dissertation research kicks back into high gear, so add to that lots of articles about gender in STEM!
