A blogoversary for me!


Exactly one year ago today, I started this blog. I have spent this week thinking about everything this blog has brought me, and being really thankful I decided to start writing it.

Obviously, I ended up running a lot more trails than I would have otherwise. I have continued my full-fledged love affair with the East Bay Regional Parks, and I feel even more blessed to live in the Bay Area (ok, we're a little smug here) than I did before, if that is even possible. I have run trails that feel like the 80 during rush hour (West Ridge on a Saturday morning, anyone?) and I have run for miles and seen no one beyond my running companion (Ramage Peak trail).

What I am the most thankful for though, is the opportunity to get to know a WHOLE bunch of really amazing people (both in real life and the "cyber world"). I have felt supported, encouraged, laughed (at and) with, inspired and amazed by the people I have met this year, many of them because of this blog.

So yeah. Go blogging. And thanks for reading, peeps! Much love and hugs to you all!

(Don't worry-- the cheesiness will be gone by the next post-- it's a new trail!)

Happy Anniversary from a regular reader. Which do I like more, the pictures or the witticisms?

Love & Hugs to you!!! I'm one of those lucky people that wouldn't have met you if not for your blog. Thank you! I mean it. Thank you!

See you Sunday. ;)

Happy bloggerversary! We actually met before I started commenting on your blog. I was at the finish of Skyline to the Sea regretting that I had chocolate milk since it wasn't agreeing with my stomach. You were flushed and in pain from your injury while my friend Ed was trying to help. I remember walking away cause it hurt to look at your foot. I then went to chat it up some more with Mike and his family debating whether to have another of his beers. Ah the memories. More to come and may they be injury free.

If I can make it to San Fran for the marathon, I'm buying your blog a drink for its 1-year blog-o-versary!

Keep it up, Victoria! It's a wonderful way share with the world what you're doing, and always therapeutic to express yourself with words and pictures!
