The beginning of a new school year means that summer has come to an end and fall has started. While it was incredible to spend the summer at home with my little man, and share many great memories with him, I’m also looking forward to many things coming up this fall, including:
1. Running my 9th half marathon at Rock ‘n’ Roll Philly next Sunday. This training cycle has been a bit of a roller coaster, but I can’t wait to see what I’m able to accomplish next Sunday.2. Homecoming at the end of September. Homecoming Week is always a lot of fun and very eventful, and I’m sure that this year won’t be any different.
3. Experiencing fall activities through little man’s eyes, especially Halloween. Preston and I can’t wait to take him to a fall festival, help him pick his first pumpkin out, and dress him up in his first Halloween costume.
4. Wine and Dine Half Marathon weekend at Disney World. While we just got back from Disney a couple of weeks ago, Preston, his dad, little man, and I will be headed back to Disney in just under two months for race weekend. Not only will I run the inaugural Lumiere’s Challenge that weekend, but I’ll also complete my 10th half marathon. And little man will get to participate in his first race. Its bound to be a very memorable trip.5. Planning little man’s first birthday party. Believe it or not, little man is already 8.5 months old, and his first birthday will be here before I know it. I’ve already started searching for ideas online, and can’t wait to put some of the ideas that I’ve found into action.
QOTD: What is one thing that you’re looking forward to this fall?
