I am a blogger?!

Like I said before this blog started as an accountability experiment in my quest to run a half-marathon.  The race didn’t happen but I am grateful that I continue using this space to document my  personal musings, my life experiences tackling new habits and facing my fears.

In the process of year I have transitioned my blog from a here and there side project into an actual venue for me to continue putting my passion and energy. In the process, I have met other bloggers,  attended fun events and play dates, posted guest post and vice versa.  I transition my blog from wordpress.com to wordpress.org on my own.  I have become knowledgeable in the intricacies of wordpress plugins, twitter, google reader, SEOs and facebook pages. I now read and know about at least 15 NYC area bloggers running life and plenty of more around the US.   Heck I even moderated a twitter #fitblog chat this week which was so much fun!

FitBlog Chats

It’s been an awesome journey so far and I am excited to see what this year will continue to bring, perhaps this year I will learn the whole splits terminology.

A few exciting opportunities that I am participating this summer are:

Yup I am one of their Ignite Fitness Keynote Speakers!
As I sign up to these conferences, it hit me I really love this world enough that I am willing to travel and pay with my own money to attend professional development opportunities.  This is no longer just a hobby!  It is pretty exciting as I look at the future and allow for my little blog to continue growing.
