Happy Birthday Blog!

A year ago today, I wrote my 1st blog post. A few dozen posts, a couple hundred Twitter followers and a few guest posts on other blogs later, here we are.

If you’re anything like me, you don’t focus on accomplishments – you focus on what’s next, what’s wrong, etc. We never take enough time to celebrate accomplishments so here are my 10 of my accomplishments in the past year (this looks short but it took me 30 minutes to do).

  • Law school – I’m starting this fall & I’ve been sitting on this decision since graduating college 5 years ago. I’m finally at peace with this decision.
  • Marathon – I ran my 1st marathon!
  • Fundraising – I raised over $1000 in a weekend (marathon weekend) for the Philippines and Haiyan 
  • Bloggy – What my blog looks like now, looks nothing like it did a year ago. My twitter also now has over 1,100 followers. I think I had close to 200 about a year ago. Hello progress!
  • New experiences – It’s so easy to fall into the same habits – in the past year I’ve tried aqua spinning, ran races as an ambassador, a half marathon in humid Miami, passed a fitness instructor class, raised money for a race, a box subscription cooking service (Blue Apron), blogged for other people, met a ton of new people on Twitter IRL, etc. 
What are some of your accomplishments in the past year? Running, professional, personal – whatever!

  1. Happy 1 year to your blog! This past year I ran my fastest 5K and I'm hoping to PR in the 1/2 marathon this Fall. Love the look of your slim Road ID! I hope to get one soon! 🙂

  2. Happy first bloggy birthday! Sounds like you've had some great accomplishments in the past year and still some more great ones to come.
    This past year I also ran my fastest 5K, went out of my comfort zone and signed up for the Star Wars Half at Disneyland, and managed to keep going strong through some personal struggles. It's been a crazy year! 🙂

  3. Happy Blog Birthday! Following suit with the other comments, I set a PR as well, but it was a 10K for me. I bested my old time by about three minutes at the Peachtree in Atlanta a few weeks ago.
