The Evolution of Crazy

I can’t believe it’s been a year last month since I started this blog! Looking back, I have shared so much with you and once again, I’m sorry I haven’t been around so much recently. As I sat back and reflected on the writings of my blog, I couldn’t help but go back to the beginning. You know, when crazy started…this crazy thing in my life called running. How does it happen? How did I start running and end up running ultramarathons? Well, I went back in time to see how crazy began.

My first “race,” which I didn’t sign up for, nor did I run the whole thing. But this is where I caught the bug.

Did someone say ultra marathon? Yes…I thought about it 8 months after I started taking running seriously.

What I loved about taking a trip down memory lane is remembering when I first met and formed bonds with my sole sisters and that I first took a peek at ultramarathons very early on (I didn’t remember doing this). While it seems like forever ago, it really hasn’t been that long. I loved how quickly this crazy thing called running evolved.

  1. Happy Blogiversary, my Dear Friend! I hold you partially responsible for why I continue to run and almost entirely responsible for releasing that silly blog. ❤ Keep being amazing, Girlfriend!

  3. Great post. What a fantastic journey you’ve started. Running is so much more than the run. It is the oldest social collaboration we have. Run free, run easy!
