It is September 1st

by Meghann on September 1, 2009

Currently hurricanes are forming in the tropics, the unbearable summer heat is slowly dying down and every morning I run by kids waiting for their school bus… Yep! it must be September!

What will the month of September bring to you?

For me it brings a special anniversary, the start  of race season, birthdays and the keys! It’s going to be a great month!

I made sure to start off the month with a bang. I ran a fast – well my version of fast4 miles this morning. I made sure I kept under a 9:00 minute pace and finished in 34:47.

I have a 5k coming up in a couple of weeks and really need to work on my speed work! I doubt I’ll break by 5k PR of 24:43, but I would love to come close. I just need to practice control so I don’t burn out in the beginning.

Not only did I begin the month with a fabulous run, but a fabulous breakfast as well!


I toasted some leftover homemade waffles from Sunday morning and topped them with 1/2 a container of Strawberry Chobani, real Strawberries and a Plum.


I felt like I was eating a weekend breakfast, it was fabulous. Waffles during the week are always a fun treat for me.

  • Great RunCheck!
  • Great BreakfastCheck!

Now I just need a great start to the month at work!

Have a great day. 🙂

This month brings me a well-deserved (imo) vacation to Cancun!! Woo-hoo.

your run sounds fast to me! I woke up early this morning to go running. I didn’t want to get up in the dark, but I thought of you doing it every morning and it motivated me 🙂 thanks!

11 Lizzy September 1, 2009 at 9:44 am

Great job on that run!!! 🙂 nothing better to start off the morning! 🙂

Yay, I love Sept 1! Mostly because it’s my birthday 🙂 Congrats on the great run! I have a feeling you can beat your 5K PR. Maybe next week you could try a 2 mile tempo run at the pace you’d need to PR? For you I think that would be around 7:55/mile pace. you can do it!!

13 brandi September 1, 2009 at 9:59 am

i can’t believe it’s already September! Great way to start the month, though 🙂

14 Mica September 1, 2009 at 10:02 am

That star plate is so cute! It makes your breakfast look that much more happy 🙂

23 Courtney September 1, 2009 at 11:38 am

Yummmm bfast! What kind of speed work do you do? I’m curious, because it’s what I need to be working on, too!

24 Mandy A September 1, 2009 at 11:38 am

I had waffles this morning, too… just not home made like yours 🙂 but that is in the cards for this weekend with the hubby and kiddo 🙂

I’m not sure what September holds for me as of yet! I am hoping that it will be my month that I fully get back on track and get this weight that I’ve gained off!

And that it’s family-drama-free 🙂 August was insane for that… hence the weight gain 🙁

25 Anne Marie@ Her New Weigh September 1, 2009 at 11:44 am

September marks the one year anniversary that my hubby and I got married. It’s a great month!

September to me means my birthday (on the 9th), my favorite season, lovely apple and pumpkin candles and smells everywhere, cozy socks, the sound of leaves rustling in the wind, and that smell that only fall brings in the early morning.

It is the easiest time of year for me to make any changes in my life. Not sure if that is because of the change school brought every year or because of the peace that the weather gives me.

I love fall.
