This last Saturday was my THREE YEARS of blogging anniversary. That is kind of a lot of blogging. You’d think I would have figured out proper spelling and grammar after that many blog posts… I’m working on it;)
You’ve been there through the ups (my favorite up ever—>BROOKE) and the downs and stuck by me through it all. Thank you. I appreciate you more than you will ever know.
You can check out my first post ever HERE! Life sure has changed over the last three years.
I am flying out to NYC this morning (yes, I realized I could have skipped 9 hours of flying by just staying out there in between events but I had to have at least a few hours with Brooke) and I will be back to Utah for good on Wednesday.
Brooke and I had a perfect morning together.
My workout was foam rolling. Lots of it because those hills from the three races ate my quads and right IT Band alive.
Icon Fitness gave me this awesome 3-in-1 foam roller (you can find them cheapest at Walmart) —> A massage stick and a high and low density foam roller. All three saved my life at some point this weekend and you have to admit that it is kind of cool that they can all fit in the big blue foam roller.
Brooke is so incredibly generous with her food (at least one of us is). She will try and feed anyone and everyone that is near her when she is eating.
She is also obsessed with the piano lately and dances while she plays (video coming soon).
We also had an intense conversation with Maggie.
Paige dropped off airplane necessities right before I left. Nothing like new music and candy.
The SLC airport has Cafe Rio in their food court. You know where you can find me.
Bloggers reading: How long have you been blogging for?!?! Make sure you leave your blog link in the comments so we can check it out!
Are you feeling any running related aches or pains right now?
Congratulations Janae!!! I love your blog & have read it every day for the past 2.5 years!!! You’ve brightened so many of my days! Thank you for that!
Are men allowed to read and comment on this blog? :)
I started blogging a couple years ago to vent my frustration with the Denver Broncos because my wife was tired of hearing it. I (mostly) converted it to a running blog in March when I decided to become a runner and start training for a half marathon in November. It’s nice to have somewhere to vent your frustration or brag about your accomplishments (even if nobody reads it!)
I love your blog mostly because your sweet tooth sounds just like mine! Now I can buy the 30 oz bag of Swedish Fish and claim it’s for running fuel! Also sweet Brooke reminds me a lot of my youngest daughter.
Congrats Janae! Your blog always brings a smile to my face when I read it. I can’t get over how cute Brooke is!!
I’ve been blogging for three years as well. Participation has died down (by me) in the past year but I hope to pick it back up. It’s great the friends that you make from doing it!
Only been blogging for about 5 months but I love every second of it :)
Hi Janae! Congrats to you and your blogging!! Next time you come through Chicago you need to try Lou Malnatis Deep Dish Pizza! You will not be disappointed. :)
Julie @ Health Nut Julie
Happy anniversary! I hope my blog makes it that long :-) It’s definitely amazing to look back and be able to see how much you’ve grown and changed over the years. Your blog is one of my favorites, keep doing what ya do girlfriend!
Annie @ lovelaughrun.com
Congrats! Your blog is fantastic. I’m in my first year of blogging, and I love it! You inspire to just put it out there, when otherwise I would be editing myself. I know I don’t know you, but I still feel proud of you! Guess that’s how this blogging community works ;)
Enjoy being in my city – NYC!!
Just a week :) I’ve been reading blogs for a few years now and decided it was time to add my own to the mix. Yours is definitely one of my favorites!!
Blaire @ Just Been Running
I’ve been blogging for 1.5 years now and I love it! It’s how I found all of the awesome bloggers I keep up with including you!! Love following your journey and I love blogging even though mine isn’t as big as half the blogs out there :)
You’re blog is awesome- I love reading it! Have fun in NYC! :)
Happy blog birthday! Can’t believe you’ve only been blogging for 3 years!
Blogging for 8 months here… though mine started as an infertility blog, it has branched out into other areas of my life- running, parenting, food, and so on.
I have shin splints right now, and I’m two weeks away from my first HM in almost 6 years! Gah!!!
I’ve been blogging for about two years! I blog about everything from marriage, parenting, shopping, food and of course, my favorite, running!
Courtney @ Don't Blink. Just Run.
That roller is pretty cool. I’ve never seen a 3-in-1 like that before.
Taylor @ Single-tracked Mind
Congrats on your bloggiversary!
You’re first post was pretty good! I expect them to be terrible because you just have to get something out there haha. I started a blog but abandoned it. I think I might get back into it. I’ve been out of running for weeks now due to runner’s knee pains. I ran 1.8 pain-free miles on the treadmill today, I might be back!! :)) I’ve missed it so much and really wanted to run at Runner’s World with everyone!
wow 3 years is very impressive! I have just started my blog and it will be neat to look back at all my old posts and see how life has changed. Happy blogging :)
Caitlin @ RunMimsie
I’ve been blogging on and off for more than 10 years…but I just started my running blog this year. I’ve been blogging regularly for just over a month now! Fingers crossed I can keep it up! :)
I’ve been blogging at my current blog for around 3 years now (I started right before I had my daughter!) but before http://www.lehmannlaughter.blogspot.com went live I actually blogged some on MySpace. Ha!
Love reading your blog and is a great motivator for me to keep moving forward towards my first marathon in March!
No aches and pains right now!
Wow- you are racking up some serious frequent flyer miles lady!

I started blogging to document my journey doing P90x in March 2010…a new blog later & it’s more around running/family, since I trained & completed a full marathon & now have 2 babies:-)
Happy blogaversary! I’ve been blogging for about the same amount of time but only started “seriously” (aka more than once a month ha!) blogging about a year ago. LOVE reading your blog and glad that you can celebrate such a monumental occasion. You deserve to celebrate with more than just a nyc bagel! (though those are the best. which i can say – i grew up there :))
Lisa @ runningoutofwine
I am still new to blogging- just started in August! http://runningoutofwine.wordpress.com
My right piriformis got a little angry with me after my run this morning but hopefully a lot of foam rolling will help loosen it up!
Oh and I also fell and broke my finger on Saturday while running, I guess that’s a running-related pain:(
I’ve been blogging off and on for about 2 years! Check it out at http://www.alidamron.com!
Hey! I’m new to blogging and still trying to figure this whole thing out. I have been reading your blog for a few months now, and I think you are hilarious and so sweet. I am currently training for my first full marathon, and you are definitely an inspiration! Thank you for all your insight and advice.
I feel like you’re my little sister! Happy blog anniversary! You’re awesome!
Happy 3 year blogging anniversary!!!! That’s so exciting :) Can’t wait for the piano video with Brooke, too!! I’ve been blogging since high school (if Livejournal counts?? haha) but my current blog I’ve had since January 2010 :)
Marilyn @ Lipgloss+Spandex
Congrats on blogging for three years! I’ve been blogging almost four years. Crazy to think about!
I’ve been blogging for 3 years too! And you’re right – life sure has changed! It’s kinda fun to look back on old posts!
Don’t even get me started on IT Bands. I’m still reeling from running my first full with a very angry IT Band a few weeks ago. I probably shouldn’t have run on it but I was determined to finish the goal I had set for myself. It (get it?) hated me by mile 2 and by mile 6 the other one joined in on the fun. Needless to say it was a painful experience. You can read all about it here (http://simplysocialblog.wordpress.com/2013/10/15/this-is-not-a-joyful-marathon-recap/). Sending healing vibes your way for a quick recovery!
Lindsay @ Lindsay Weighs In
I love reading your blog! I’ve only been blogging for a little over a year, and feel like I’m just kind of starting to get the hang of it. I hope I keep blogging for a long time because I love it! :)
Congrats on the milestone, that’s awesome! I love reading your blog daily, keep it coming! :)
I’ve been blogging since 2008, but just started my running blog. Please check me out, http://www.sherunsforcupcakes.blogspot.com.
3 years, congratulations!! I love being blog friends with you!
I’ve been blogging at my current blog for just under two months… almostgettingittogether.com. I write my company’s blog (ae.com/blog) and I had a blog with my best friend on and off for the past 3-4 years. It’s hard some days to write but I love it!
