I'm just going to follow the lovely Ali's one year blogiversary post and pick some of the highlights from each month, since I'm sure that none of you were reading this blog when I first started it (except for Mike, my mom and Mike's mom)!
The first post I wrote was on September 3, 2011. I definitely have changed my blogging style a little bit and have figured out what kind of blogger I want to be!
Mike and I ran our first half marathon ever and even though it wasn't my first race recap, I was really proud of this one!
I was injured immediately after the Fall Foliage half marathon, but I tried to run in the Stockade-athon 15K anyway. Some of you know that lead me to my first, and only, DNF.
November 20th was Bernie's first birthday!
I ran in a few virtual races, including one around Christmas with my mom and Mike.
Mike and I were dealing with our first year of running in the winter, luckily it was very tame, and we ran in the Freezeroo Series. We even ran our first race with snow on the ground!
I also met my first blogger friend in real life!
Mike wrote a guest post for the blog and shared lots and lots of information about himself!
It was my birthday and I held my first ever virtual race (that's my mom in the photo).
I ran in my first international race!
Finished my third race in three weekends and met another amazing blogger!
I became a FitFluential Ambassador.
Mike and I ran in another relay, this time all day and it. was. amazing.
I ran my PR 5K race, 25:53.
We competed in our first duathlon!
We officially became triathletes!
I wrote my most popular post, a tropical protein smoothie recipe.
I started my "Wedding Memories" series and Mike and I celebrated our two year wedding anniversary.
We went on our first runcation and ran in the Rock 'n' Roll Chicago Half marathon.
Our vacation to Maine was amazing and we stayed active the entire time!
We ran our 19 miler, our current PDR, for our marathon training and I shared my thoughts with you.
Mike and I became two-time triathletes after completing another sprint triathlon.
That's the gist of this blog's first year of life! I hope you go back and read some of the posts that you might (most likely) have missed.
