I really love this time of year….September has always had a special place in my heart. To me it feels like the real start of a new year. I guess this comes from years of loving school and working in education since graduating from college.
The year feels fresh, I love the leaves changing and it feels like you get a new start. To be honest I don’t love the shorter days, but you take the good with the bad.
Luckily in Colorado it stays pretty warm most of September so we can still enjoy dinners al fresco and runs in the mountains so summer isn’t over just yet!
My goals for the last few months of 2015 are very simple and have shaped some of my recent decisions. I have two main goals:
Find Fun and Seek Peace.
These are simple but difficult tasks but will frame my decisions…if an activity will be fun then great, yes please. If a decision will disrupt the peace in my life than no thanks….I’ll move on.
One of the ways we are look to meet these goals is to book a trip to Disneyland in October just because it will be fun. I grew up going to Disneyland almost every summer but haven’t been back in almost 10 years. Cory and I went back in 2006 and had the best time! I am so looking forward to a trip that is just about having fun!
Also I am looking forward to planning some fall adventures on trails. I love trail running and don’t get to do as much of it as I would like when training for triathlons. So more time and trips will be planned to find more dirt on my shoes while thinking about BIG future dreams.
What are you plans for the last quarter?
I can completely understand changing your plans if your heart and mind aren’t in it. That’s great that you will still be racing in the half in Tahoe and that you can watch Cory compete in the marathon. I’ve heard the half is a great course. Hopefully the weather will be kind to you this go around.
And Disneyland!! So fun. I can’t wait to take my son to Disneyland someday when he is older. I’ve only been to Disneyland with adults, so going with a child must be a completely different experience.
Good luck next week in Tahoe! I’ll be thinking about you!
