September was another month that flew quickly by. While I kept busy the whole month, it was in the middle that I felt a bit over-committed. I’ve intentionally tried to slow myself down a bit in the past couple weeks. It’s all been good, though. October is off to a good start with a four-day weekend for me. Here’s a look back at what happened in September:
Traveled: To Indiana. A lot. We were with Nick’s family for over Labor Day weekend in southern Indiana. A couple weekends later we were in Indy for the Women’s Half Marathon, and the very next weekend we were in Columbus for the Mill Race.
Read: In the Name of Salomé, Emma: A Modern Retelling, Help Thanks Wow, The Poisonwood Bible, Bird by Bird, Missoula
Ran: 102 miles, almost twice as much as last month. I was actually surprised to see that I was able to bounce back so quickly. A few of this month’s miles were part of the Indy Women’s Half Marathon, and 3.1 of them were at the Mill Race SIHO 5K. The back-to-back races don’t end there; we’re running a 10K the first Saturday in October.
Took a step back from: Teaching in the studio. There were some time commitments that weren’t going to fit into my life at the moment, and I decided to focus my energy on the kids’ outreach classes I teach. I’m still teaching as a sub fairly frequently in the studio, though.
Taught: Four kids’ outreach classes, one family outreach class, one in-studio class, three classes at my gym, two classes at Fleet Feet Louisville, and one afternoon at Churchill Downs Family Adventure Day. Phew!
Renewed: My certification with Yoga Alliance. September was the month of yoga…which is great, because it’s National Yoga Month.
Facilitated: An “ice breaker” at Connecting Things Louisville, with two of my fellow teachers from 502 Power Yoga. Afterward, we got to hear from chef Kristina Addington of V-GRITS about her experience opening a vegan food truck. We also got to taste her grits, biscuits and gravy, and samples from Kentucky Kombucha.
Attended: Nulu Festival in one of my favorite Louisville neighborhoods. Market Street was filled with local restaurants, shops and vendors.
