The sun is setting earlier. As we were finishing our Thursday run, I was surprised to see how dark it was so early in the evening.
It’s still summer by the calendar, but its days are numbered.
Summer is my favorite season and this summer shined on me. I savored it.
I don’t mind getting hot and sweaty. I know I’ll miss it, even though it is difficult to run in this heat. I would rather be outside on a sweltering day in the sizzling sun than to be outside on a bitter, wintry day.
As the season begins to change, I’m more aware of time’s non-stop advance. It’s charging forward.
It reminds me of my goal to relish every moment, to live with intent, and create my own adventures. As I am looking at the upcoming calendar, I am quoting Franklin Roosevelt: “To reach a port, we must sail. – Sail, not tie at anchor. – Sail, not drift.”
I am filling my calendar with 10K races, half-marathons, a marathon, several Broadway plays, supper clubs, and travels. (Oh…and work…and a technology conference…and a presentation at a librarian conference…and train, train, train, run, run, run)
Make your fall lists! Add at least one new experience and share it here. Maybe it will be something someone else would like to consider.
Be watching for a list of some of my upcoming races.
