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:
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!
