There’s no hiding it, my last published post, in my now dusty corner of the Internet, was on August 1, 2013. 2013?! How did I go an entire year (and then some) without even logging in to check on my space? Why did I ignore this for so long?
And you know what’s even worse? I don’t have a good excuse. Not one. There was no life-changing event that happened to me, or a serious family issue, nothing substantial in my way that would have prevented me from logging in and doing one of my most favorite things to do in my free time – writing.
But that should stop today. Today, I finally took the first step and logged in again. Baby steps, right?
I couldn’t help but laugh looking back at some of my old posts. Especially my “5 mile milestone” one, as I now have one successfully completed half-marathon under my belt, as well as a completed Army 10-miler, and another half-marathon set to be run on March 14th. Running is now something that is essential to my life, so it was pretty cute to see myself being so proud of running 5 miles and really seeing how far I have come.
So, as it shows on my blog, let’s pretend like 2014 didn’t happen (even though a lot of great things happened that year, which I’ll probably talk about) and push forward. Here’s to the rest of 2015 and many more entries to come.
