Happy Running Birthday to Me!

Yippee! Today I turn 2!

It was two years ago today I made a decision that has changed the course of my life. I had no idea that I was about to embark on a journey that would help me to shed the last 50 pounds of my weight loss, make countless friends, take amazing adventures and profoundly change me inside and out.

If I stop to think about all the priceless gifts that running has given me, I become truly overwhelmed with emotion and gratitude. I have no idea where I would be or WHO I would be today if I hadn't decided to take that first step.

Along with my running birthday, I celebrate the 2nd anniversary of this blog! 

I appreciate each and everyone of you who has supported me in my journey with your advice, words of kindness, jokes and kicks in the ass. If it weren't for the running community and the love and support out there - I'm not sure  I would be still running. I had so much help along the way.

For my running birthday and blogging anniversary, I took a 3 mile run around the neighborhood. Still in LA working and it was nice to see this kind of landscaping and blue skies on my run: 

perfect day for a running birthday
In case you feel like taking a walk down memory lane - here was my first post.  And here was my post from my first running birthday - which also coincidentally happened while I was in LA last year!
