I CAN NOT believe September is coming to a close!!! It has been a pretty busy month for me, but as I look at the calendar, I am realizing that October is going to be a crazy busy month too!
So, what has been going on here?
On the blog, I have posted the following-
Top Ten Tuesdays:
Books That Should Be Taught in School
Books That Should Be Made Into Movies
The Book Thief Read Along Part 1 and Part 2
I know- not so many books this month. I found that I started quite a few that I couldn’t get into, and put them aside for another time.
In my actual life-
I started to run (after about 20 + years) and decided to sign up for my first 5K ever. I chose to run the Tunnel to Towers run, which is in memory of a good friend of mine who died in 9/11-Stephen Siller. He was a fireman who ran through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel-in full gear- to the Trade Center when he heard what happened. He was last seen in the South Tower. His family created the T2T to honor him, and every year they hold a run that follows his footsteps. This was the first year I ever ran- and I can tell you it was one of the most AMAZING experiences I have ever had- and one of the hardest. I was also very lucky to make some new friends- here’s a shout out to those awesome Firefighters from Gerritsen Beach and Queens!!
Here are some pics from that day!

Congratulations on your run! That does look like an amazing view.
That run sounds really special and like an awesome experience! I’m glad you did it and made some friends! Sounds like a good month!
It looks like we had pretty similar weeks! I really enjoyed Bloggiesta and The Book Thief Read-a-long and also reviewed The Husband’s Secret 🙂
Oh fabulous job on becoming a born-again runner (haha!).
And with reading, well, you can up it for next month!
Thanks- though I have to say, I am not sure if my body likes the fact that I make it run- lots of aches.
Well maybe not now, but at some point your body will thank you!
