WOW!!! I cannot believe I have been blogging for 2 whole years!!! My very first post was on January 27, 2011 (I thought it was the 29th, thus the 2-day late post).
I started Running, Loving, Living in 2011 as a way for me to stay accountable to my quest to run a sub-2 hour half marathon. I achieved this goal on May 1st, 2011 at the Long Island Marathon, with a time of 1:54:36!!!
What I found along the way was my confidence, new friends and a supportive community!!! Blogging has opened my eyes to all that I can and will achieve in my life.
In November 2011 I was accepted into the FitFluential family as an Ambassador!!! I am grateful for this special community of bloggers and have made so many new connections because of FitFluential!!!!
Most recently I took my first trip by myself to FitBloggin’12!!! This was not only an amazing conference, but it was my first experience on my own since becoming a mother 16 years ago. I made many new friends and really put myself out there in a way I never would have 2 years ago!! I discovered a new, independent me, which felt amazing and this is all thanks to blogging.
Through blogging on Running, Loving, Living I was also presented with a unique opportunity to partner with Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield in a new collaborative blog/website called Real Health. Among all the bloggers they looked at they saw something unique in me and alongside 5 other bloggers Real Health came to fruition in September 2012!!!
I need to thank my family and friends for the support they have given me over the last few years, especially my husband. Chris has put up with me blogging over everything else and I really appreciate his support and confidence in me!!! These people have supported me and have boosted my confidence in ways I cannot describe, so thank you!!
Last, but definitely not least I need to thank all my loyal followers!!! Without all of you, Running, Loving, Living would not be where it is today!!! Thank you for sticking by me through my injuries, illnesses and lack of posts as I worked through these issues. Each and everyone of you are amazing!!!!
To show my appreciation I am giving away an Active Accessories On-The-Go Accessory Pouch!!! This pouch is a great for the gym!!! It holds everything a small phone to keys to gym card to money to jewelry!!!! It is small enough to place right on the cardio machine while you work out!! A great addition to any gym bag!!!!
