One Year Ago Today – February 4, 2008

February 4, 2009

I start at the very beginning one mile at a time.

Today is my one year anniversary.  This blog is one year old this very day.  I am not sure what i thought i would accomplish writing this blog and I do think that it has changed over the year.  As I look back, I see I was very into my diet and my mileage and I was very zen like.  

Fuck that.  I totally changed in 1 year.  Good – bad – I don’t know.  Just different I guess.  

“Be the change you want to see in the world.” Ghandi-

Change is a good thing.  It’s been 2 weeks since my last run.  It’s been gnawing at me.  Why did I break my TOE right at the beginning of a new year?  When I had all these goals and hopes and dreams.  When just the week before I rocked out a 10 miler?

But, there are no answers.  Just a lot of silly questions.  That’s what time does to you.  It makes you think.  Too much.  So, of course I had to change up those goals.  Just a bit.  There is a lot swirling around in my head.  For now I will keep it inside.  I will absolutely  share it all with you.  When I know for sure, myself.  My peeps.  My homies.  My friends.  

My friendships here are truly spectacular.  People come and go in your life.  I just feel that the friendships i’ve made here in the past year are true and long lasting.  It’s just a feeling.  Call it runner’s intuition.  Or call it something else.  Just don’t call me late for dinner please!!!


I – Love – You!!!

Let’s all High Five.  

My Universe told me this today:

Hunches, instincts, and intuition are priceless, Michelle, because they throw you into action.  

They do throw you into action, right Michelle??

    Great post! Great video!

    love the “zen” remark and the some of it all in the next sentence.

    I can’t tell you what to do, but I can advise you to keep your spirits up and try to do what you can to keep your running dreams alive. The wall before you know is just a test. Most people stop at the wall. You have to decide on your own if your willing to grab a sledge hammer and knock down the wall!

    I’ll be on the other side wishing you, “Happy Running!”

    Happy blog anniversary!!!

    BTW, I found out the Brooklyn half is at the end of May. Think you’ll be up for it?? Queens is early August. Staten Island, October. There’s also the NYC Half that I think you should put in an entry for. It’s lotto entry only, so you might as well try. I’ve run it twice and…well, enjoyed it quite a lot the second time. 🙂
