Happy Blog Anniversary to me and to Run2Golden!
First of all I want to thank all of you out there who read this little thing that I have been working on. I love being able to share my journey to a happier and healthier life.
It is so funny to look back at my posts in the past year and see how much I have changed! I went from a girl who fell in love with running a 5k to being able to run 16 miles! I have learned so much about how to take care of my body through fuel, cross training, stretching, and even with gear. To think a year ago today I was running in a pair of Nikes that I got on sale at Kohls!
Let’s take a little tour of some highlights this past year. A little trip down memory lane!
Back when I didn’t bake from scratch (aka pre-baking basket winning), just got my first pair of real running shoes, and one of my first 5ks: https://run2golden.com/2013/10/20/pred-in-my-5k/

The first time I met Jen! I love that I met a great friend all through this blog, it so cool to be able to connect with such inspiring and positive people that share similar interests and outlooks on life: https://run2golden.com/2014/05/15/a-whole-week-recap/
Joining New York Sports Club. NYSC has given me so many opportunities: https://run2golden.com/2014/04/12/the-ritz-carlton-womens-half-marathon/
My first half marathon recap, such an amazing and emotional accomplishment: https://run2golden.com/2014/04/13/morefitness-magazine-womens-half-marathon-recap/
Brooklyn Half Recap: https://run2golden.com/2014/05/18/brooklyn-half-marathon-recap-pre-during-post-race/
So fun going down memory lane!
I know I sound like a broken record but finding the passion for running has just made me so much happier and healthier. When you run you want to eat better and fuel yourself with all the good stuff. Which has made me fall in love with cooking. I also have found passions other than running because you (or at least I) cannot only run (aka injury central). I have found the passion for weight lifting, spinning, yoga, working on my core and embraced the idea of stretching & foam rolling.
What a year it has been! I cannot wait to finish my 9 + 1 next weekend at the Staten Island Half to fulfill my dream of getting into the 2015 NYC Marathon! I have so many great things in my life to look forward to. I hope you continue to follow me on this awesome journey I call life!
THANK YOU!! 🙂
