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.
My first 10K.
My first Half Marathon
My first and only mud run.
Did someone say ultra marathon? Yes…I thought about it 8 months after I started taking running seriously.
My first marathon!
My first 5K! That’s right, it’s AFTER my first marathon 🙂
My second marathon!
My third marathon!
Falling in love with trail running.
My first ultramarathon!
My fourth marathon!
My first 50-miler!
And today…I’m sent my application for my second 50-miler!
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.
