Wow, the week ran away from me! Here is my sketchbook from Week 6 of training for the Tampa Hot Chocolate 15K on December 19th.
I'll keep it short and sweet this week since I'll be posting Week 7 in a few more days.
Full Week of Workouts
I worked and played hard during Week 6. I also tried watercoloring Fall foliage. It was super soothing, but I need more practice. (I think a similar card I made for my brother's birthday looks much better, but I can't show you that one.)

Fall is Pie Season, Right?
Fun Fact: A long time ago, my friends and I ran a Bake Sale every Fall for 10 years as a fundraiser for our kids' grade school. Since then, when Fall weather arrives my brain is triggered to pull out baking recipes.
This year, I found this interesting take on Apple Pie that I want to try. So, I made a watercolor recipe page.
Pro tip on apple pie baking — use Granny Smith apples. Yep, I know the apple I painted below is red, but use green Granny Smith in your pie. They taste delicious and don't get too mushy.
My New Favorite Buff® Headwear
If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you've already seen my new Buff® Ecostretch. Hands down this one is my favorite color scheme.
I love that it's so versatile — it wicks away sweat one day, and keeps me warm another. It's perfect for any activity this time of year!
Now for my watercolor review: the background (pseudo tabletop) watercolor wash stinks. But, somehow, the Buff® saves the page.
Are Fall Colors Ironic in Florida?
I'll readily admit I miss the kind of Fall scenery you find "up north" but I absolutely LOVE Fall in Florida.
Although we don't have colorful corn in St. Pete, I enjoyed painting it in watercolor. Corn husks can be so graceful, sometimes.
Weekly Mileage Reached 25.78
Do you round up your workout miles? I know some runners will loop the block to end their workout on an even number — like 7, instead of 6.95. I don't feel the need, but that's just me.
I was very happy with my workouts during Week 6. I really enjoyed my Sunday long run.
It's Starting to Snow, Man
