Happy Blogiversary!


Happy Blogiversary to me.
Happy Blogiversary to me.
Happy Blogiversary dear meeeee.
Happy Blogiversary to me.

I'm a whole two years old! Yippie!!!

It's crazy to think back to two years ago when I was very very occasionally running two or three miles with no real consistency. And then boom I decided it was time to train for a marathon. And the rest is history.

I can't imagine what life would be like without running. I'd probably be a big old grumpy pants all the time.

I'm addicted to the endorphins (and the race-day schwag!) and the post race medals. I've become a student of mapmyrun.com. I feel naked when I run without a watch.

The only thing I haven't gotten addicted to yet is a Garmin. One day, when I'm super super rich (or just remotely richer than I am right now) I will have one and I will be as obsessed with it as all of you.

I think a good way to celebrate is to look back on some old blog posts. Here I've selected a few of my "greatest hits"

1. My first post ever
2. Baltimore Race Report
3. Virginia Beach Half Report
4. I miss this!
5. Stubble Run Race Report

Down to CP tonight for some spring soccer. And then driving back tonight and work tomorrow. Yikes! It's going to be a long day!

I got my Garmin 101 for $75 on eBay. Yeah, to get the new fancy ones you've got to be independently wealthy, but the 101 works just fine for me... as long as I keep fresh batteries in it. :)

I also got my Garmin for a bargain. If you hunt around online you can find some great deals!

Happy Blogiversary!

Happy Blogiversary!
What a great post! Love the way that you referenced your favorite posts. As a newer reader of your blog it was fun to read them all!
I am not a Garmin girl yet either!
Have a great weekend!
Take Care!

HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY!!! I'm SOOOO stealing your pic. Mine is on Monday LMAO!

I agree with Zach! The first Garmin (it broke so I upgraded) I got was a 101 and I *heart* it. I think I only payed $50 off ebay for it. The GPS is weaker than the newer models but it served it's purpose :-)
