Happy Saturday! I hope you are having a glorious weekend. So who watched the opening ceremonies last night? Thoughts? Favorite parts? I can’t wait for sports all day everyday. My poor DVR is going to get a workout!
Today I am featuring another blogger for your viewing pleasure. Everyone, meet Marcia!
1.) How/Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I’d planned to chronicle my training and efforts toward a potential Boston qualifying marathon. Shockingly (to me) and because I’m such a procrastinator, the BQ happened before I got the blog started, so I used it to track my training for my first Boston instead.
2.) Sum up your blog in a couple sentences
My blog is is a collection of rants and ruminations on running, fitness, food, family and whatever else I see fit to print, including some fun giveaways and product reviews.
3.)What do you wish to accomplish/achieve by blogging?
It’s simply my creative outlet, and my way of disciplining myself to write almost daily. If it helps me get some freelance writing gigs, all the better. What I didn’t anticipate are the amazing connections I’ve made with other runners around the world. I am humbled by the helpfulness and kindness that comes from people through the comments every day.
4.)What is your biggest healthy living accomplishment?
I went from fat girl to gym rat to runner and qualified for Boston at my second marathon. In my mind at the time, that was something not even on my radar as a possibility. It showed me that anything truly is possible and that I was setting the bar too low for myself in many areas of my life.
5.) What is your blog URL and twitter handle
My blog is Marcia’s Healthy Slice
Twitter handle is @teamarcia
Thanks so much Marcia! How inspiring. Thank you for sharing a little about your blog. Everyone be sure to stop by and say hello!
QOTD: Anyone racing this weekend?
