Important Pumpkin Things and a Running Update

I have really important news to report! Pumpkin is back! Caribou Coffee has been selling their pumpkin lattes and drinks for a week and Dunkin Donuts is finally hopping on this train. Not all stores have it yet but some do. Luckily the one by my house is one of the ones that does! It was a great start to the day, let me tell you!

Pumpkin beer is also something that is available if you can hit up your local liquor store. Most of the brands I've tried are delicious, but then again I love all things pumpkin!

With the coffee and beer comes the pancakes, muffins, donuts and scones. You can bet I'll be baking and eating my fair share this fall season. And hopefully remembering to photograph it along the way! :)

Do you love pumpkin as much as I do? If not, what is your favorite fall flavor?

In other news, I am back to running with my Garmin. I ran 8 miles on Monday night and didn't have enough of a charge so it died close to the end. I guess I have to get used to running with it again! :) Speaking of fall, temperatures are starting to cool off here and there. This is getting me very, very excited for fall racing season. With so many races, it is going to be really hard to choose just a few. Thankfully I'm not under any pressure to make this decision and I can take my time deciding. :)

  1. Pumpkin pancakes and muffins sound really good. Both of those in apple would also be good for fall flavors as well. Sorry to hear about your Garmin. What made you switch back to running with it? I am also pumped for the fall running season, although it will mainly be made up of the Chicago Half and the Chicago Full Marathons, I will hopefully be able to throw in a Halloween run and Turkey Trot as well!

  2. I love pumpkin, but I also love gingerbread! I know that's more Christmasy, but gingerbread spice lattes are among Starbucks' seasonal options, and in my opinion, better than their pumpkin spice lattes.

  5. Pumpkin is the best! I always look forward to the pumpkin creamer being available in the stores so i can brew my own pumpkin coffee in the morning otherwise my chronic Starbucks habit gets too expensive!

    I'm sooooo excited that the SB Pumpkin Spice latte is coming back this weekend! I also love the Peppermint Mocha too which I can get in the skinny option. Love the holidays!

  12. I totally understand. I was able to get Pumpkin Coffee K-Cups from Kohl's last year with a coupon so it wasn't too bad. It is so delicious I have to splurge! :)

  13. I signed up for the Hot Chocolate 15k and I also want to try some local 5ks but I can't decide which ones! I might also try to do a flat half marathon this winter but I'm not sure! Too many races!!! :)
