Welcome to my blog! For my dedicated readers, I'm doing something a little different today. I'm attending the Ultimate Blog Party! Come along, and let's have some fun!
Born and raised in the Nashville, TN area, I'm a southern gal through and through. From my travels and adventures in other states, there's something unique about living below the Mason-Dixon line. We really do love fried foods and sweet tea, but I promise we don't run around barefoot and in overalls. (Although, I prefer bare feet or at least flip flops in the summer!)
One of my hobbies is running, which as you can see has influenced the title of my blog. I've done three marathons and a handful of halfs. I think that life really is a lot like a distance race... sometimes it's easy and other times hard, sometimes you love it and sometimes you hate it, there are ups and downs, straightaways and curves, and in the end the most important thing is to take one step at a time toward the finish line. I also find it's always best when you can keep a smile on your face.
If you really want to know some random details about me, read my 100 Things for my 100th Post.
My blog consists of a lot of random things. Sometimes I like to tell about adventures I've had when traveling to visit friends in other places. Other posts offer details of weekend activities or something interesting that I may have encountered in my day. I sometimes share things that are on my mind, or maybe I'll tell about a favorite memory involving friends. I try to post pictures of various things I have seen or done. You never know what you might get, but I like to think it's usually interesting.
I'm rapidly closing in on being a quarter of a century old. I'm not married yet (so no husband or children stories at this point), but I sometimes have a fun dating story to share. I work full-time, volunteer weekly, and run 4-5 days a week. My cat Tucker keeps me company at home, and I have an amazing circle of friends.
I post pretty often, so feel free to come back and read about the adventures of this young, single gal in TN. I welcome comments and feedback, and I certainly enjoy invitations to your own blog party!
Prizes I think would be cool to win:
#117 - The $25 Target gift card offered by Mommy Bytes
#20 - The $50 gift certificate offered by Paperlicious.com
#60 - The $25 Amazon.com gift card offered by Judy
After that, it's 31, 39, 59, 68, 114, 129, 140, 70, 79, 91, 101, 104, 107, 92, 128, 132, 135, 148, 52, 56, 41, 3, 9, 49, 45, 67 and then after that anything else is baby/mommy type things and since I'm not a mom I'd have to say that if I won one of those prizes I'd take it and gladly give it to a good friend who is a mommy. :)
