Thoughts from October 2017

October has been a great month. It felt like fall came all at once to the Pacific Northwest. I’m trying to enjoy the last sunny days before the rain and clouds descend. Here are some of the things that happened this month.

Links I Love

I Have More Clients

At the end of September I had two clients, now I have a few more! It’s really exciting to see my new business growing at a steady pace. Even though money is tight, I can see the end of the tunnel when I’ll have a sustainable business. I just have to keep my eyes on my goals.

Started Running Again

Back in 2015 and 2016, I ran 13 5ks in 14 months (finding a 5k in February in Wisconsin is really hard.) After I completed that goal, I slacked off big time in my running routine. I got back on the course this month! I live near several trails, so I have no end to places to run and I’m using the Runner’s World Training Journal to keep track of the new habit I’m developing (affiliate link.)

This was also a quiet month. I’ve been concentrating on my business, so I haven’t traveled anywhere very interesting. If you want to see into my life more, follow me on Instagram. This is especially good for cat pictures. How has your October been? Are you ready for the holiday season?
