You and me… We’ve had some really good times together.

In 8 years of blogging:

8 different houses/apartments I’ve lived in

3 kids

41 races

4,462 posts

412,315 comments

1 sub 3 marathon (yep, just slipping that in whenever I can)

956 family dinner recaps (estimation)

8,888 pictures of ice cream/candy/hot chocolate/sweet potatoes (educated guess)

14,560 miles I’ve told you about (I’m estimating about 35 miles per week on average over the 8 years)

The absolute best internet friends and running community possible.

My very first post is here and while some things have changed about the way I blog (should I go back to using a different color for each sentence?) a lot of things haven’t (sorry;).  I started blogging as a way to journal everything going on in my brain and I am still hooked all of these years later.  I think there are probably less than five days during these 8 years that I haven’t posted something so thanks for sticking around over the years… not sure how I got so lucky to have you guys.

Hey everyone!!! I wanted to drop in and write a guest post, I will warn you I wrote some of this post at 1 am and I felt like I was really funny, so if I wasn’t….. Just help a brother out and pretend I am. A few people have been asking about school and … Continue Reading

As if this month wasn’t crazy ENOUGH… We are gone for the next few days!  A few months ago we bought a little trip for our family to take this week before we even thought about moving and we couldn’t change the trip at all to a less crazy time of life because it is … Continue Reading

Halloween is out at our house now and hopefully the new neighbors don’t think we are too crazy (Andrew put them all over our yard and a lot of really creepy ones;). I’m training my brother for another half-marathon and he rocked his long run yesterday in the POURING rain.  I think he told me … Continue Reading
