i cant even imagine where my life would be without running right now. so many amazing things have happened in the last 3 years because of it. running is one of the best stress relievers, something that keeps me sane, allows me to be fit, and its kinda fun to tell people you are when that is the last thing they would ever expect! cant wait to see where it takes me in the future.

we grew up on country music, my dad always played it in the car, well truck really. i tried to fight it in the beginning i wont lie lol. but now it is one of the main things i listen to no matter the mood. through this break up though it has been especially helpful and i was so damn excited last night when i pulled out the previous taylor swift cd and found all the songs i had been looking for to express everything the last few weeks. sometimes the only way to truly convey how you feel is through a song.
3. social media
i know it sounds a little silly but i joined twitter about a year and a half ago not really sure i was even into it. now it has exposed me to sooo many more people and networks then i ever could have imagined! it helped me get into the nike womens 1/2 marathon and so many people i have never even met have sent so many well wishes in the last month. getting to share in others journeys to their 1st 1/2 marathons and their everyday adventures is completely in reach because of social media. it brings this very large world were in just a little closer to us all.
|betsy and i in san francisco!|
since graduating from college i really missed writing but didnt really know what i could use to fill that void. i liked the idea of blogging but was never sure what to write about. when a girlfriend finally suggested writing about living with your boyfriend i knew i had something good to finally write about! now its turned into so much more and the extension of the social media from above. i love the community it has allowed me to be a part of the people i get to connect with.
living in our generation we have been very blessed to have the kind of reaches and access we do. it is because of technology that i can still talk to my brother deployed half a world away with just my phone. or allow me to drive and talk to best friends in different states and even countries sometimes. it allows me to blog and find a new recipe for dinner all in the same place haha. it sounds silly, but i dont know what i would do without it!
|weve come a long way from these guys:)|
