So...first things first. The winner of this awesome RUN Christmas ornament from The Run Home is comment #131, courtesy of Random.org....
Congrats, Beth! If you haven't checked out Beth's blog (Running Around My Kitchen) you definitely should. She just ran the St. Jude Memphis Marathon this past weekend - her second in a month! Beth, send me an email with your mailing address and I'll get your ornament to you.
Tomorrow is an anniversary of sorts for me - the anniversary of the day hubs and I started dating. I don't consider it a real anniversary since we just celebrate the wedding date now. And I can't start claiming anniversaries too often. Can I? Maybe...the anniversary of our first dance? First time going shopping? First time getting frozen yogurt together?
Anyway, all this reminiscing got me thinking about my first blog posts. I scrolled back to the beginning and was curious who had left comments way back then. Believe it or not, there are some comments from my very first week of writing by women who still comment today. And that's basically awesome.
Almost Runner: Commented on my second post. Hilarious then. Hilarious now.
Kari: She was "Jogging with Fiction" back then, but now blogs at "Running Ricig."
Rose: Thought the sweet potatoes in my third post looked good. Why thank you, Rose. Has a cute butt - read her blog and you'll have plenty of opportunities to see it for yourself.
Jess: Writes over at Blonde Ponytail. Such a sweetheart and puts some great workouts up!
Mallory: I've been following her blog for a while now, and she always has something interesting to say.
Ashley: Better known as (the incredibly speedy) Redonk Runner - and she's running Atlanta Marathon with me in March. So happy I got to meet her in Nashville a while back:
Janae: My first blog comment was from Hungry Runner Girl. I was so excited I actually jumped around!
As much as I love making new friends in the blogging community, it is so cool to me who the very first people to read my blog were!
If you write a blog - are you proud of the first few posts?
Honestly - no! If you look back at it, it's a little disorganized. It took me probably a month to find my groove. I also used to post twice a day at first, which was so unnecessary. I do not lead that interesting a life.
How long is your longest friendship? Are you still close?
I made a friend on the first day of kindergarten named Megan. I was 4 then, and now I'm 24, but I would still count her among my friends, even though we use Facebook to see what's going on now!
