I am so very excited that fall is almost here. It is probably my favorite season of all because of the perfect running weather and also because the top marathons are all around this time!! I am running the Queens Half Marathon this Sunday and I am a bit nervous. It is the first longer distance race I am running since I was told I had basically zero red blood cells and had to inject iron into my blood, and I have absolutely NO idea how I am going to do. That is why I think I am going to just use this race to gauge my marathon training progress and just work from there.
Also, and most importantly, we need to take a minute today and remember and thank every single soul who sacrificed or lost their lives 13 years ago today. Not only should we remember but we must also be thankful for even the smallest things in our own life. There are days when I think back about how my runs became so physically exhausting from my anemia and I am just so thankful that I am better now and still able to run every day. I know it seems small, but it should be those small things we appreciate every day.
And some exciting news! I got a new job!! No, I did not quit my daytime lawyer job but I got a second job at a running store where I will be working one day a week. This should be exciting for ya’ll too because now I can tell you when I discover new running gear! I just thought it would be something fun to do and it will be good for me to surround myself with people who have the same interests as me. And maybe I will even get speedier!
Has/does anyone work in a running store? Any advice for newbies??
What is your favorite season?
