Today is the first day of October and Monday. Something about starting the month on a Monday makes it feel like a fresh start. A new beginning. And I love that feeling. It is a feeling of hope, opportunity, and possibility. A feeling I used to get at the beginning of every school year.
Also it has been three weeks since I completed the Erie Marathon. Three weeks of post-marathon recovery which involved light recovery runs, yoga practices, and lots of rest. My body and mind are making their comeback. I am finally not tired when I set out to run this morning.
Here is a quote I like to share in celebrating the new month:
Sow a thought, reap an action;
Sow an action, reap a habit;
Sow a habit, reap a character;
Sow a character, reap a destiny. ~ Samuel Smiles
What destiny would you like to plant in October?
