At the end of my spring semester, in the midst of training for the Broad Street Run, I told myself that I would start a blog in the summer months to come. I’ve been continuously inspired by a former coach, who also happens to be one of my biggest role models, who also has a successful blog (Be sure to check it out at http://theroadlessrun.com/). Her blog indirectly made me realize a lot about myself. It also gave me the motivation to share what I have to say with others! As much as I love to run and talk about running, I decided against making it primarily a running blog. Instead, it would be an “everything” blog. And so I began brainstorming.
I’m extremely grateful for the many experiences I have been a part of with my family and my friends – after all, they’re the ones that give me things to talk about! There are far too many good (and sometimes bad) memories to list with this first blog post. That’s why I’ve decided to dedicate this entire blog to sharing past memories that I hold close to my heart and present/future experiences that I’m enjoying and/or looking forward to.
I may be a young 21 years old, but I feel like I’ve learned so much in the past few years that I feel I need to share with the world! And I realize that I’m not a keeper of all knowledge. There is not one person on this planet that can say they know everything. But I believe that it’s the knowledge you do know that can get you far in life. It’s always just a matter of applying your knowledge, having the confidence in your skills, and believing in your ability to succeed.
I’m excited to get this blog in motion! And I hope you, the reader, are looking forward to reading it! And if you’re already bored out of your mind just reading this post, feel free to never read another blog post of mine again – I won’t be the least bit offended! After all, I’ve learned that if you don’t enjoy something, just don’t do it! So do what makes you happy!
And one more thing! Michael, if you made it to the end of this post, I hope you now understand why I decided to start a blog :p
