I’m not quite sure what possessed me to start this. Awesome blog posts by friends recently? Funny blog posts from internet famous running bloggers? Truth be told, I’ve been toying with the idea for a few months, but wasn’t sure what I’d write about, what the “theme” would be, whether or not anyone would care, if I was comfortable spilling my guts on the internet. But two days ago, in a post-midnight shift haze, I decided to go for it. It took me a while to come up with a name (um, that whole 2.5 hours of sleep thing), then I spent what felt like hours making a simple banner because I’m a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to graphics (tbh still not 100% in love with it). For better or worse, here I am.
Listen, I’m one of *those* runners. The one posting evidence of my training runs and race outfits on Instagram, spamming people with race tracking on Facebook and then posting a medal selfie afterwards, uploading my GPS logs to 4 different apps, and constantly talking about running or working out in between those things. 100% being the person non-runners/gym rats roll their eyes at incredibly hard. So, while I will continue to do most of those things – can’t stop won’t stop – I figured I can at least put the talking (er, writing) here instead. I may add some posts about non-running fitness, feelings, and food.
My first real post will probably briefly cover how I got to where I am today and how I am indeed not some freak who was kind of fast to begin with. I’ll save the whole “fast” issue for a separate post.
