TIART: Blogaroo

I seriously LOVE to blog which is great because today's topic from Runners Lounge for Take it and Run Thursday is Running Blogs!

Since I started this blog, my old journal has been seriously neglected! I am not big on sharing a lot of personal stuff, I try to stick to the topic of running but as we all know that running affects all areas of life. I started this blog a year ago in July while I was bored at work and I am so glad that I did. It really has been helpful to see my progress in running. Also it has been a great way to save all the memories from running Track.

It is great having a running community where I can read about other runners in many different places! Everyone is so nice and supportive and numerous times I have laughed or giggled while reading a post! Everyday I look forward to opening my Google reader and reading what everyone has been doing!!


On to other important topics - I have some Updates:

1. Yesterday I high jumped and I actually looked like a high jumper! No more chin to chest! No more butt hitting the bar! Besides the meet this Saturday, we have a dinky dual meet Tuesday and I am planning on jumping to see if I can show how much I have learned!

2. Talked to my sprinting coach yesterday. He really helped clear things up for me about the relay situation. My head coach is just set on giving this girl a chance, it still seems kind of fishy to me but i actually like being in this position. The pressure really is not on me, I just have to wait and see how she does! Allison, my teammate, has been really supportive and I am just so grateful to have a wonderful team!

3. Events for This weekends meet:
100m Hurdles
shot put
long jump

Thanks for reading! Keep blogging because honestly I love reading what everyone writes! Happy Thursday!

Awesome that you are improving on highjump - I guess it payts to look at those photos.

I hope you keep blogging too-- even when you're not bored at work. ;) (Yes, I admit it, that's a key motivator for me, too.)

Sounds like the meet this weekend will indeed be a little more relaxed for you. Hope it all works out for the best!
