Fitness Friday: NYC or Blogiversary?

NYC or Blogiversary? It's hard to chose which makes me happier!

Today my bags are packed and after school I'm off to NYC with my running partner for our NYC Half Marathon weekend

It's been fun getting ready.

It is also my Blogiversary Weekend! I've had some amazing experiences in the last year:

I ran another half marathon with my husband
I served as a ZOOMA ambassador
I met and ran with with Joan Benoit Samuelson
I participated in my first relay RTB:NH
I hosted my first Chilly Challenge
I added Maine to the list of places I have run

As a way to say Thank You to all of you for reading, following, commenting, and supporting this little blog of mine for the past two years, I thought I'd pick up a NYC souvenir and have a fun little giveaway. I don't know what it will be yet, but you can count on it being running related.

a Rafflecopter giveaway
Entries will be accepted until 11:59 on March 17, 2013. US residents only. Winners will be announced Monday.

March 16 -

I can't believe I have been blogging for a WHOLE year! 
Amazing things have happened since I wrote my very first post

My blog has experienced a huge transformation since then...

now I have pictures and Twitter and Facebook!

I did reach 211 miles in 2011 (on May 3rd)...

plus about 440 more!

 I became a New England runner...

facing snow storms, pouring rain, BIG hills and more!

I was also asked to be part of a little adventure and became a 2012 Blogging Ambassador for the Cox Rhode Races. Being one of the voices that runners hear as we train for our races has been an honor and I'm looking forward to race weekend in Providence. The fifth annual race series will be held May 5-6 and will feature a full marathon, half marathon, 5K, and kids fun run. You can hear from all Ambassadors on the Rhode Scholar Blog here

I joined an amazing community of fitness fanatics at FitFluential. This online community is supportive and spreads a positive healthy message. It is open to anyone who is passionate about fitness (not just bloggers either). By joining you will find yourself interacting with people who are sharing, talking, living, and breathing fitness. You will hear about great opportunities and get more support than you ever imagined possible. I'm now a FitFluential Ambassador which means I'll also be sharing information about great fitness products, events, and opportunities here on my blog.

My blog was nominated for a 2012 Fitterati Blog Award on! To think that someone out there considers my running blog a source of motivation and inspiration is the biggest compliment I could ever receive. It is pretty cool just to be nominated along with so many AMAZING blogs and know that someone likes reading about my adventures in running.  

Needless to say, there has been a lot of happy dancing this year. I am excited to continue blogging about my experiences and sharing my passion for running.

so much for reading about my escapades!
