Bon anniversaire TWO 2 TWO Le petit bonheur

February 4, 2010

I’m a 2 year old.  Today.  And here is my first post way back on February 4th 2008.  One Mile At A Time.

Runnin’ Down A Dream has 224 posts.  Today will mark 225.   1612 comments.

Some funny search terms:

love heart
x-ray valentine
calvin and hobbes, moving
shamu slippers
wylie coyote road runner
beating the storm i ran up the hill runn
am i even lucky
cycling socks
wile e
compression socks

Its been fun.  I really enjoy writing and expressing myself through my blog.

I’ve also met and friended some pretty neat peeps through Twitter (@BklynRunner) and Daily Mile. I am also a member of the Daily Mile Team which you can read all about at the link.  For me, meeting new people, planning meetups in my local community and getting involved in racing and volunteering is most appealing.  And I know this much about myself.  I am a good caring individual who is always the first to try to help others.

I don’t need pats on the back for running a good race.  In fact, I don’t want it.  All I want is to be involved with other like minded folks who want the same things that I do.

I have a few races to run the end of February and I also have a duathlon the end of March.  I will approach those races like I always do.  Enthusiastic and smiling and i will run the best I possibly can.  I am hoping to get in some more long runs.  No, I will get in more long runs.  There is nothing like the feeling of running long and finishing strong.

I really wanted to run 2 miles today to commemorate my 2 year blogiversary, but, since I couldn’t do that I took my bike out for a really nice 10 mile ride.  It really made my day.  It was just what I needed.  It did not hurt my hamstring/butt to ride my bike and for that I was grateful.

A dear friend of mine sent this to me the other day and I would love to share it with all of you:

There are times when it is hard to believe in the future, when we are temporarily just not brave enough.  When this happens, concentrate on the present.  Cultivate le petit bonheur (the little happiness) until courage returns.  Look forward to the beauty of the next moment, the next hour, the promise of a good meal, sleep, a book, a movie, the likelihood that tonight the stars will shine and tomorrow the sun will shine.  Sink roots into the present until the strength grows to think about tomorrow.
