September is Looming

I stared at this blank screen for a while (as in two days).  Where do I start with September?  It's too busy of a month every single year.

Birthdays for niece and nephew.  My birthday.  Anniversary of my Mum's passing.  My wedding anniversary.  It used to be the start of a new school year, but now it's my niece's and nephews' turn.  It's just a whirlwind of a month.  And now, I have two races that I'm signed up for.  And a baby shower.  And three weddings to attend. *phew* I'm getting tired just typing it.

But here's the thing...I never let September bring me down.  Instead, I attack it like I do a hill (even "Hell Yes Hill"): head down, strong arms & legs, and perhaps a little swearing.  I get mad at it.  Grrr.
Little me, back when I was a Jr. in HS (1999), attacking a mean hill in Richland, WA


Then, I don't give up, and I finish strong
Finishing one of the last races my Mom & Dad both saw me run in Fall 1999

Bring it again, September.  I'm ready.
