So yesterday I quite by accident realized that today is exactly 2 years from my very first blog post!
I wasn’t necessarily planning to write about it, but since I didn’t have anything else planned for today I figured it may be a good time to recap a little bit about the past two years and share some of my favorite posts!
I began blogging shortly after running my first race ever, the 2011 Wine & Dine Half Marathon which has become somewhat of an anniversary race for me…
…in total I’ve run 8 half marathons, 3 full marathons, 1 mud run, a few other races of various distances and I’m currently training for an event so crazy they actually call it Dopey!
Wine & Dine 2011 is also where I met this crew…
…since then we’ve run many races together (most at Disney, but some not), all crashed in 1 room for 2 race trips, dressed up as characters from Cars (and are currently working on costumes for January!), and I can’t confirm, but we may or may not have a group text that’s been running for over a year.
I am so thankful that I started blogging and can easily look back on all of these experiences!
I’m also thankful for the many friends I’ve made through running and blogging – from the 3 above who I’m still surprised aren’t sick of me yet, to Christine who I ran the Marine Corp Marathon with (26.2 miles is quite the bonding experience!), and many others. Some of you I’ve had the opportunity to meet at races and some are still just “blogisphere” friends, either way I love the community and your support and I look forward to reading your comments and following along with your adventures! (And it’s a good thing we have each other, because lord knows our “non-running” friends are sick of listening to us talk about running!)
Thank you to all of you for stopping by (and coming back!) and here’s to another year of Living, Running and Growing!
