Happy Weekend! I hope you all get to enjoy the long weekend and don’t have to work too much! I am sure I will be working some on Monday but hopefully not on Tuesday. Any exciting New Year’s plans? LSU is playing in the Chic Fil A bowl so I can’t wait for that!
A fun announcement, I was chosen as one of Women’s Running Magazine’s Bloggers on the run for 2012! There were 12 chosen, and I am SO beyond flattered, humbled, and honored. I didn’t even know they were making a list, and the e mail I received last night was such a pleasant surprise, I can’t stop smiling! You can check out the article for yourself (link goes live 6 am EST) on their website. (You may remember I was chosen as a blogger on the run back in May)
Today I want to tell you about my friend Danielle from LiveRunGrow.com. I got to hang out with her some during Wine and Dine weekend and she is super sweet, and an awesome yogi. Be sure to check out her blog, can’t wait to see her again in Disney in January!
1.) How/Why did you start blogging?
I began blogging a little over a year ago shortly after I completed my first half marathon and was training for my first full to document my training and share my race experiences. I also wanted to start working on some personal growth goals and figured a blog would be a great way to hold myself accountable!
2.) Sum up your blog in a couple sentences:
Up until now Live, Run, Grow has primarily been very running and training focused, but starting this January I’ll be going back to school full time (for 5 years!) for Physical Therapy and I’ll be sharing that experience on the blog as well. Since I just completed my yoga teacher certification I also love to share yoga poses and tips for runners and athletes.
3.)What do you wish to accomplish/achieve by blogging?
My two main goals in blogging are to use it as a tool to help keep myself on track during my 5 year journey in going back to school and to document my training and races to be able to look back on. If my experiences can help and encourage others along the way then even better!
4.)What is your biggest healthy living accomplishment?
I would have to say that my biggest health living accomplishment is completing my first half marathon (my first race ever!). Before I began training for that race I probably couldn’t even run a mile, but it was something I decided to do in memory of a friend who lost her battle with Leukemia and keeping her in mind really helped carry me through my training. At the time I thought the race would be a “one and done”, but this January the Goofy Challenge will be my 5th half and 2nd full marathon!
5.) What is your blog URL and twitter handle
You can find me at www.LiveRunGrow.com or follow me on Twitter at @dnardi710
QOTD: Did you go back to school once you were already out like Danielle is doing? Share!
