Throwback Thursday: Life Lessons Learned from Running

We interrupt this regularly scheduled month of getting super excited about the upcoming Running with Ollie Big 4-0 virtual four mile fun run, scavenger hunt, and giveaway for a regularly scheduled throwback Thursday.

Throwback Thursday is a monthly post when I share a blog post you may have missed the first time around. It also gives me the chance to spruce up old posts, add better images for Pinterest, and clean up old mistakes. Sometimes you don't realize how far you've come until you look back.

This month I am remembering my very first day of the Blogember blog every day in November challenge in 2013. I was inspired to do this challenge after not posting a single blog in October last year. I was in a blogging rut and the challenge was exactly what I need to get my blogging movo back. After all, blogging challenges are easy. Someone else does the hard part, they come up with the post ideas. All I had to do was write them.

My first post of the challenge was Life Lessons learned from Running. I'd love it if you would take a trip back in time with me to check it out.

I usually take this opportunity to share a throwback picture, so that you can either laugh at my giant hair in the 90s or gush over how cute I was when I was a toddler. (Seriously, I was cute. I'm not sure what happened.) But instead, in honor of our upcoming virtual four mile fun run, we are going to throw all the way back to last Friday, when I announced a giveaway for registered participants in the virtual race until 9/12. The pre-race giveaway ends this Friday (tomorrow!)

Ends 9/12/14
I will randomly draw a winner from the registered participants in the US 18 years old or older on Friday 9/12. If you haven't registered for the FREE virtual race yet, now is the time to do it. I may announce another pre-race giveaway on the 12th, so stay tuned.

And if I haven't mentioned it enough times in this post already (what? too many times?), you can still register for the running with Ollie virtual four mile fun run, scavenger hunt, and giveaway here. It is fun and free. Register now.

Who excited? I mean, besides me.

Have a great Thursday, friends.  We'll catch up soon.

  1. Love your big hair pics... was that a Texas thing? :)

    1. ha ha. I wish I had some good execuse for the big hair -- like to say it was the 1980s or to say I lived in Texas, but the truth is it was the early 90s in Pennsylvania! LOL
