Blogaversary

Two years ago I started this blog with this less than epic post. When I started this blog I had just started training with a coach after signing up for what would be my first half Ironman. A few days earlier, my firm (aka the Brothers Lehman) declared bankruptcy and my job was melting down. I started this blog to chronicle my athletic failures (no successes were really anticipated) without any expectations and it seemed likely that this blog could just quickly disappear.

I'm happy that this blog became a little more than nothing. What it is, I don't really know but I feel that I've gotten to e-know some people through it and some people may have gotten to e-know me a little. Some good, funny bloggers make me crack up from time to time. I shared in mine and others successes and failures too. Some blogerati have disappeared and others have magically appeared over time. I feel that my journey, while it may veer off in unexpected directions from time to time and is still slow, isn't over yet.

Thanks for reading.

Ain't blogging a wonderous thing? I started my blog almost three years ago, to chronicle my training for my first marathon. I figured when I was done with the marathon, I'd be done with the blog, yet it's become this somewhat important part of my life.

I'm glad I'm one of your blogerati! (I love that word!)

Ditto to all the comments.

I'm one of your "blogerati" too and I enjoy following on with your exploits. I've only started doing Tris myself and I love it (I'm not very good but that doesn't matter)

Yesterday I celebrated my 1 year blog anniversary so I hear ya and hope to be around in another year!!!
