Happy Labor Day all – HLD! (I just needed to get that out there). Hope everyone is enjoying their day off, no matter what you’re doing.
I started the day off with November Project in South Boston. As I was running over this AM, a fellow November Project tribe member appeared behind me. He had run at least 3+ miles more than I from his apartment, and I of course hadn’t properly read the blog post on Friday, so managed to divert us and add an extra 1.5 miles – OOPS! Oh well, it was a nice run and a nice long workout, which ended with a dip in the water. I hadn’t done that in Southie for almost a year, since the last time I met November Project in Southie – last July. The water is always a great way to end a workout – need to do more of that next summer!
Well as most say that summer is ending, I saw something this week mentioning the fact that summer doesn’t officially end until September 28. Let me just tell you – I’m going to fully agree with this. My September is fully packed – as you could see from my Friday Five – so we’re going to embrace the September summer and ride it out for as long as possible.
September will bring
1. Lots of running – hopefully I can top my 145 miles from August (I don’t usually count my mileage for the month, but I was very surprised and very happy to see that).
2. Lots of family and friends – trips to Grand Rapids, Philadelphia, and the Cape – and then to round it out, a trip to Chicago in early October.
While I traveled a lot this summer – mostly to the Cape, I can’t wait to embrace the fall travel schedule – to places a little farther away.
3. Lots of fun – traveling, running, family, friends – what more could I ask for.
Just wanted to get a quick check-in, since I was only sitting on the couch. Hope everyone has a great rest of the day and wonderful evening.
What’s up for September for you? How was your Labor Day?
