I can’t believe that I’ve had this little piece of internet space for two full years! Admittedly, my little blog hasn’t grown like I hoped it would — but now that I know how much work it takes to make a blog grow, I’m completely fine with keeping mine little. Putting in the necessary time and effort for a bigger and better blog just isn’t high on my list of priorities right now.
That said, between the training recaps and the fluff, I have written a few decent posts over the last two years, so today, we’re taking a look back at some of my favorites, starting with the oldest. If you missed them the first time (or are wasting time at work and want to read them again… no judgment), enjoy!
7 Simple Rules for Driving Where I Run. Evidently, no one read this one the first time, because I still have these issues with drivers.
Farewell, Old Friend. Because I’m amused by myself.
Life Lessons Learned from Marathoning. This was one of my most popular (read: still not very popular) early posts.
How to Shop Healthy When You Have to Shop Wal-Mart. Because Wal-Mart still sucks.
A Letter to My 16-Year-Old Self. I still wish I could send this to the past.
“You Smell Like Vacation.” One of the more creative things I’ve written. Some of the pictures don’t show up now, and I’m too lazy to fix them, but the words are still there.
Treat Your Marriage Like a Running Injury. I’m still not a marriage expert, but as we head toward our seventh anniversary (Sunday!) this advice is as applicable as ever.
Dear Americans: Stop Being Ignorant about Your Food. This was probably the most popular post I’ve written to date (it got, like, 4 shares!), and I believe it’s a message a LOT of people need to hear.
Readers: As this little blog enters year 3, what types of posts would you like to see more (or less) of? Any topics you want me to address?
