Where did September go? I say that every month but it really seems like this month went by extremely fast. There has been a lot of talk in the bloggy world lately on a slow down challenge. Can we apply that to the months? It’s scary to think the Holidays are approaching at a rapid pace. Gah! I don’t even want to think about it yet!
In keeping with tradition, here are six of my favorite posts from the month. I must say that it was quite a marvelous month (Thanks to Katie for hosting MIMM!).
Prior to the start of this race, I was seriously thinking of not doing it. What would have been my first DNS, actually turned into a memorable day in more ways than one. One – the hills. Oh my legs! And two – I crossed the finish line with my son. Total #motherrunner brag moment!
Race #2 in September! It was a busy month of racing and running. It was my third time running a 5 mile race and the first evening race ever. I can’t say I’m a fan of the distance or the later time BUT this race was fun for the whole family.
Twelve miles full of emotions and meaning. Tears, smiles, high fives and countless number of THANK YOU’s were shared that morning during the NH Run for the Fallen. I’ve run over 900 miles this year and those twelve were the most meaningful.
Last month I shared what I do as A Day in the Life of a Clinical Exercise Specialist. This month it was all about my “other” job as Mama to two superheros. I’m always curious about how others spend their days. What is boring to you, may be interesting to me. So fun to read all the link up participants posts and be nosy!
Getting a videotaped running analysis was so cool to see but also very painful to watch. I knew I was a mess but didn’t realize it was THAT bad. Ouch! I’m got a lot of homework to do but all my faults are fixable. Over the weekend, I did my first run with the metronome. So hard but I could tell a difference immediately. I felt more efficient and my pace showed it.
What was the highlight of the month for you?
