Reviving the Blog

4 Jan

…And I’m BACK!

Happy 2013 everybody and thanks for taking the time to visit my blog! It has been since October since I’ve last blogged and so many events have occurred since then that it is hard to sum it all up! Last time I posted, I was gearing up for my 1st 1/2 marathon. My intention was to recap the entire experience, but when I returned from the race, my mind was full throttle in mid-term week. From there, I sadly lost my blogging mojo. I let school & anxiety engulf me for the remaining weeks of the semester. After having a few weeks off from school to reflect and gather my thoughts, I have officially decided to REVIVE my blog! I have truly missed sharing my experiences and connecting with this community.

So rewind to October 2012:

My 1/2 marathon was AMAZING! I ran the Columbus Nationwide 1/2 marathon on October 21, and it was honestly one the best experiences of my life. I felt strong and confident crossing the finish line and was so grateful to have my mom and best friend, Alyssa cheering me on.

Pre-Race Picture! It was chilly that morning!

Post-Race! Was so happy to have completed the race. Hard work pays off!

Since the race, I have decreased my running mileage but have continued to run 1-2 times per week. Although I was busy with school, I made the effort to complete workouts at the gym and at-home dvds!

I will however need to jump back on the running train in the next few weeks as I start training for my 2nd 1/2 marathon! I am officially signed up for the Nashville Rock’ n Roll 1/2 marathon on April 27th! My sister and I will be be race companions, and I could not be more excited. It has always been a dream of mine to complete such an accomplishment with my sis by my side!

I look forward to blogging about my training and my daily musings. Thanks for stopping on by and helping me revive this blog o’ mine 🙂

xoxo,

Anjali
