It’s been a great run

This is hard to write.

I have honestly lost my inspiration for this blog.  I don’t know why exactly.  Perhaps it is some added pressure at work, or maybe the fact I’ve written for almost a year and a half about running – I mean really, how much can one person write about running?!?

So during my run yesterday, I decided to take a break from my blog.  It wasn’t a hard decision.  The past few weeks I would start to write and have to rewrite the same opening sentence 3 times before I finally either just close my browser or push through to something semi interesting to me.

The hard part isn’t taking a break.  The hard part is that I have met so many interesting and caring bloggers on this site.  When I started this blog, I wasn’t on social media.  I didn’t want to be.  I don’t do Facebook and only started a Twitter account after I started this blog.  I only told people I personally knew that I was doing this project.  But then, somehow, people started finding me.  I went from a handful of people following and viewing my posts, to hundreds.  On top of that, there are about 10 bloggers that I honestly could feel like I (somewhat) know through out interactions on their blogs and mine.  It has been a great run.

All good things must come to an end.  I will probably pick this back up.  Maybe in a week or so when pressures at work calm down, and maybe not.  I honestly don’t know. I want to enjoy writing and I also don’t want to just disappear without notice and allow my blog to languish and me feel guilty about not keeping it up.

So one last thank you!  I would name some of my favorite bloggers here, but then I would feel badly if I missed someone.

Okay, I just can’t keep going.  You all really do know who you are.  There are more people, but I don’t have time to write everyone’s names! You know who you are.  Some of you helped me through my marathon, some just found me recently.  Some have shown great concern for me in all my injuries and some really make me laugh and smile.

Please know I appreciate every like and comment I’ve gotten since January 2012 when I started this blog.  Also know I fully intend on coming back and continuing to write my journey.  I have doubts about ever qualifying for Boston as I get hurt after almost every race, but that is still my goal and every run I complete will put me closer.

Okay, enough already (I hear you say).

Have a great life.  Keep running.  Keep making me smile.
