Happy Runiversary!

Today marks one year since I started running.  A year ago I never imagined that running would become such an integral part of my life.  A year ago I never imagined that I’d complete seven 5ks, a three miler, four 10ks, and two half marathons in a 365 day period.  And now, I can’t imagine my life without running!

There was no better way to mark this milestone than by running my second half marathon yesterday.  The past two weeks have been anything but easy, but I’m so glad I took the neurologist’s advice and still ran Rock ‘n’ Roll USA yesterday morning.  A full recap will be coming soon, but for now I will share that despite being completely exhausted for more than five miles of the race I PRed by 20 minutes!


I’m very much looking forward to what my second year of running brings.  I look forward to kicking off year two of running with the Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run in three weeks!

QOTD: How do you celebrate and/or recognize milestones?

    Who would have ever thought that you and I would be running? I bet in our high school group none of our friends would have thought you and I would become runners. I cannot believe it myself sometimes! I have a similar post planned for this week too as it was my 1 year racing anniversary yesterday. Congrats! Keep it up and someday we’ll run in the same race 🙂
