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.
