Reflecting Back on the Last Year and 2 Year Blogiversary Preview!

As we are less then 2 weeks away from the close of 2014 and just one day away from Fit Running Mama turning two years old I can’t help but be a bit reflective.


This was my first post...ever…Since then there have been over 455 posts and about 25,000 comments!

It’s been a great year… one with a whole lot of twists, turns and wonderful unexpected surprises.  Of course the biggest surprise of 2014 is our true gift coming in less then 2 months!  Obviously, if you read about our struggles with fertility you can understand how this has truly been a miracle and surprise!



Running and fitness wise it’s been a bit different since I have had to change my goals in the 2nd half of the year but I had some great races and did them while I was on The 30 Clean!

I also plan to do the 30 again after the baby is born and we are back into some kind of new routine!


We found I was pregnant around Sara’s 5th birthday. Just a few days after I finished running The North Shore 1/2 Marathon… my favorite race in the massive heat!


In any event… here we are closing out 2014 and anxiously excited for what’s to come in 2015!


It’s been incredible sharing the last year with you and really the last two years.  Since starting this blog I have become a personal trainer and Health and Fitness Specialist.  So many changes and so much growth in such a short period of time!

Blogging has opened me up to the world of super foods and Pinterest.  I used to the kind of girl that needed a recipe to follow to create dinner…. now I just wing it and see what happens!

I’ve met some amazing people in the blogging world… some I’ve had the pleasure of meeting in person and some I feel like I have known for years through their blogs… blogging will do that too you!

To help celebrate tomorrow I have a few great giveaways lined up!


Thanks for reading, commenting and being a part of the journey!  Be sure to stop back tomorrow for the big giveaway!

How long have you been reading my blog?

  1. What’s the most amazing is that I remember how you couldn’t cook unless you had a recipe & followed it to a T. Such a difference a couple years makes.
    Happy Anniversary!

      Je sais pas combien de fois il faudra le rÃ0#2©ter&p8Ã3©; les salariés de la SNCF ne sont pas fonctionnaires. Ils ont des contrats de droit privés (ils peuvent donc être virés etc.), même si ce sont des contrats qui font rêver les salariés de beaucoup d’autres entreprises.
