Interestingly, 66 days from September 1 will be November 6, the day of my next marathon. The habit I decided to break was eating multiple bowls of cereal per day.

What habit are you going to make or break? It's not too late to start. You can join until the end of September, or go all out and aim for 66 days (use this website if you don't want to count the days on your own). Some habits readers are trying are reducing sugar, exercising at least 20 minutes a day, and eating five fruits and vegetables a day.
