For my one hundredth post (yes, 100) I wasn’t sure what I wanted to write about. I mean, how does one celebrate 100 posts? Quite honestly, when I first started blogging I wasn’t certain I’d be able to keep up with it longer than a week or so. Seriously. Between working on my own, watching a 20-month old and the chaos of life in general, it damn-near seemed impossible. Then I thought about what made this attempt to train so different. And in an effort to find the perfect topic to write about, I started looking through the stuff I’ve already said and landed in the stats page. I have to say, I was completely overwhelmed by it and decided it’s about time I thank you all for your support and encouragement. RunningKatTales has landed in twenty-five countries – unbelievable!
It has been 61 days since I started training for this half-marathon. In that time I’ve had support both on my Facebook page RunningKatTales, on Twitter and of course, right here. I can honestly say that if it weren’t for my “online” support crew, there would be no way I would have made it this far and I’m excited to see it through to completion. From comments to emails: thank you for your advice, cheer and inspiration. There are many days I don’t feel like going and I think about the crew out there training just the same as me and it gives me the boost (and kick in the butt) I need. There are lots of you I’ll probably never have the pleasure of meeting face-to-face, but I count you as friends.
