Welcome To The Fall Semester

Comments (24)

I love this time of year. I get up at 5am, catch up on email (holy shit – is it already 6:37?), write a blog post, go for a run, and then have a completely jam packed day full of working with amazing people. Some days are awesome, some days have crushing challenges, all of them are stimulating.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve run incredibly hot from Labor Day through Thanksgiving. The boundaries seem to be the holidays and the bookends are Amy‘s birthday (9/14) and my birthday (12/1). We often find ourselves in New York around Amy’s birthday and in some exotic warm beach place (like Mexico) on mine. Between the two is complete and total chaos, which is delicious when I give myself up to it rather than fight it.

Here are a few of the things going on this fall.

As my dad likes to say, “if you aren’t living on the edge, you are taking up too much space.” I’m enjoying the edge this semester.

If you happen to talk to Kelly along the way, tell her thanks for putting up with me. Or send her flowers. Or chocolate.

    Awesome you are hitting Burlington for the fall marathon, but I’ve got to recommend (once you’ve finished all 50 states and if you still have the bug) to come back and do the Burlington marathon in the Spring. It’s a fantastic & beautiful race – just the right size. That being said, October with a sweet view of the Adirondacks in the fall is going to be pretty nice. Good luck!

    “I’ve learned how to ship my clothes to different places” … You ship full suitcases? For whatever reason – NEVER thought about shipping my clothes. Great idea. Thanks!

      Yup – I can’t believe out took me 46 years to figure it out.

    Fun fall ahead.

    Put Lancaster, PA on your target list. Lots of great things happening here, ecosystem starting to gel, capital finally starting to seep in :)

    Jay-Z’s corollary to this is: “We Go Hard”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7L21uZPAeBk

    Which should be the entrepreneur’s anthem.

      10pm – 11pm. I binge sleep on the weekends. Sometimes.

    Maybe be like Jack Reacher and buy new, cheap stuff every couple of days and toss old stuff!!

      Ooh – that’s a good approach also.

    That wisdom from your dad is self-evident in every aspect of your life. Have you written about him and perhaps other life lessons he brought to your attention?

    The marathons seem to be in the air and on the ground. Good to see the Canada shout out.
