Oldie but a Goodie!

Can you believe that this month marks five years that we've been authoring this blog?  Who knew that on a random Saturday in March publishing one little blog post could enhance our lives so much?

  And Enhance our lives it did!

Because of our blog we have been exposed to so much more than we ever would have without it.

Throughout the years we've learned so much more about running, blogging, and social media, and have formed relationships that have turned into real life friendships! The list is long.

However, over the years our readership has changed. I would never expect anyone to have read every post we ever published, but there were a few in the beginning that I know didn't get much exposure, because who knew we even had a blog?



We will call these Oldies but Goodies worth the read.


1. Where it all began - This was seriously our first post ever! It actually explains what got us into running in the first place.

2. Lacey's First Marathon -  This was like a three day event and I loved everything about this entire experience.

3. The Boston Marathon Weekend -Triumph and Tragedy

4. When our Labrador visited her favorite amusement park - A must read for pet lovers!

5. Visiting the Running Headquarters-  What a great experience this was!


Have you read any of these posts?
Please tell us what early blog posts of yours we should go back and read! 

Have you seen the March topics for the Friday 5? Check them out HERE. Then stay tuned for what we have in store for April!

  1. Ive been reading your blog for a long time but I don't think Ive read any of these posts! When I was looking back on my posts from 2014 it looks like you commented on them so I was probably reading your blog too back then! I will have been blogging for 5 years in August...crazy how time flies!

  5. Congrats!! I've been writing my blog for five years (since Jan. 24, 2013), and I know there are several old posts that have ZERO comments and very low readership LOL And, the lack of pics and layout, not to mention the boring (or lack of) header pics. Ugh! It's a wonder anyone ever found their way to my blog. Oh well....live and learn, right?

  6. I was just thinking I should go back & look at old posts & see if I could highlight some (or poilish them).

    Congrats on 5 years of blogging! Hopefully I will get to some of those old posts of yours -- they sound interesting.

  9. I started blogging (under a different name) back in the summer of 2006. That seems like a crazy long time ago! It's definitely changed a quite a bit since then. I try to share a post or two from my archives each month on Social, but I should gather a few into a post. Hmmm.

    I need to go back an read some of these! That pet one sounds particularly intriguing. :D

  10. Congratulations on 5 years of blogging!! I am a creeper, so I had read most of those old post.

    Your blog was one of the first one I started reading, and from here I picked up a few other blogs. I appreciate your words, your honesty and your support. You guys are amazing!

  11. This is a great idea! I'm going to do the same thing and link back to you, okay? :)

    I went back and read about Belle at Knoebels. What a lucky pup!!! I love seeing dogs at Knoebels. :)

  12. Happy Blogiversary! Its always so much fun to take trips down memory lane. That's one of the many reasons that I love blogging, because I have a journal upon which I can look back and see what I was doing, what I was thinking, etc.

  13. Happy Bloggiversary!!! It's always so funny to think back to a time where you didnt feel like you needed to write things down or take pictures for a blog, isn't it? ;)

  14. When I discovered your blog, I did read the "Where it all began" post. Isn't it amazing how the time flies? I've almost been blogging for 6 years, and that was after my first half at Disney. I like how Disney races inspire a lot of people.
