Move It Monday, Core Circuit + Apple Orchard Photos


Can I get a what-what! for these b-e-a-utiful fall temperatures that rolled in this weekend? Man, I am loving it. We woke up on Sunday to a very chilly morning, and decided to go ahead and run before Mother Nature realized she left the A/C on over night. 🙂 I had my long run, which went great, largely because of the cool temps.

We wanted to continue to take advantage of the cool temps, so we took a little road trip up into the mountains, where it was super chilly, to the apple orchards. It was a blast, and the apples were so sweet and delicious. Tehachapi, again, wins for the neatest town ever. Here are a few pictures from Pulford’s AppleTree Orchard.
