In the middle and end of August some days start to feel like fall. Fall in Ohio is my favorite time of year. Football games, apple and pumpkin picking, and the beauty of the leaves changing colors- it is a wonderful place to be. Fall also makes me think of the start of field hockey season and summer conditioning in the August weeks prior. It always felt like a new beginning to me- much more than January ever did. I always felt like I was entering into a new part of my life, with more to prove and more to give because of all the summer conditioning I had endured. I love the feeling of new beginnings and the feeling of moving confidently into my future, because I made it count in all the days past. I can't wait for fall, and the beginning of new and exciting parts of my life.
