  • Running my longest training run on a beautiful, local trail with BFP and a few new running friends.
  • The entire experience of going to Seattle to meetup with my Nuun team and then running Hood to Coast.
  • The beginning of cross-country season and jumping into my new role as a coach.
  • A visit from my sis-in-law and nephew and celebrating his first birthday.
  • An impromptu gathering with friends to watch football, eat pizza, and drink wine.

Bring on September!

I’m ready for a fresh start. Turning to the September section of my planner this morning created a sense of optimism that I’ve been struggling to feel lately. It is going to be so, so busy but I’m looking forward to welcoming my favorite season full of running and XC, watching my girl play her last year of high school soccer, enjoying the return of football season, the end of season harvest that provides so many delicious and cozy meals, the changing colors of the landscape, the crisp autumn air… YES! Bring on September!
