The Mt. Lemmon Half Marathon was so awesome! Recap to come soon. Until then...

For my one hundredth post, I will divulge 100 things about me.
I can't believe I have gotten this far with running. I wasn't sure how far it would take me, or how long it would be until I got bored. But I didn't! It has been a slow process, but I have finally gotten to my 100th post. I started this blog in February of 2010 and since then it has been an amazing journey. I have amazed myself in many ways and met some really fantastic people along the way. Thanks for following me on my journey and I hope for much more to come!
