Happy Birthday, All In Stride!

One year ago today, my little blog was born. With much hesitation I wrote my first post, and then ran to See Jane Write’s fearless leader Javacia to see if I had “done it right.” Like with anything new, at first I felt clumsy and awkward writing. Now, I just post whatever spills out of the crazy depths of my mind. And I’ve grown to love it!

So here’s a look back at some of my (and your, according to my stats) favorite posts from the past year:

Why I Hit The TrailsBecause once upon I time, I had never been on a trail run. Tomorrow, I run 30 miles. For fun.

This time last year, this flat little jeeptrack both terrified and enticed me

Tale of the Alabama SnowfallBecause SNOW. In ALABAMA.

The Day I Became an Ultra RunnerI still smile when I think about how awesome that day was. And what a badass I can be. Just sayin’.
