1 Year ago today, I decided to start a blog. Well, actually Gretchen decided to start a blog and I copied her. G and I spent almost everyday during lunch reading blogs and talking about cooking so we figured we might as well document it! Her blog has more of a clean, healthy eating perspective and well mine was a little of everything. But I am slowly trying to make it have more of a focus. My first post was a mess, it was all over the place. I took pictures of pretty much everything I ate and wrote about some workouts and some recipes. After a couple months of this, I realized no one cared and it didn't make sense for me to take pictures of boring food like a sandwich or coffee. My friends all thought I was weird for taking pictures of my food and my family constantly asked how I had so much "free" time to write this thing. They didn't get it. So I decided to refocus and only write about things I cooked, recipes I tried out, fantastic restaurants, important days and of course my workouts! It's become a journal for me to look back on things I cooked, races I've run and workouts. I've started to get a few more followers and my close friends sorta care (they read maybe once a week) and my family finally thinks its cool that I have a blog. Well maybe not cool, but I think they enjoy reading it without me asking them every other day "Have you read my blog?" So I've been writing for a year and it's totally become a passion of mine. I really can't imagine not writing my accomplishments on races and workouts and not posting my delicious meals! Dave always says one of the things he admires most about me is my ability to give 100% into whatever I'm passionate about. Like this blog, my work, cooking and my running. Although I may half-ass other things in life, I try to give my all into the most important things.
So if you read this blog, comment below and let me know! And don't forget to wish me a HAPPY BLOGERVERSARY!!!
Here's to many more years of blogging, running and cooking delicious meals!
