August marks my two-year Runniversary! I have come so far in such a short period of time. It’s amazing to think that I started running because one day I was bored - I hit the pavement, ran six miles with an awesome group of girls, and have never stopped since! Who knew that turning the dirty Thirty could be more just a number? It’s a milestone really! My milestone.
In high school, while I danced and participated in gymnastics, I was never that girl who was very athletic. I was ALWAYS chosen last for team sports. It never failed. Well look at me now, suckas! Race you!
Okay, so I might still be coming off that runner’s high from my run earlier today, but still I am excited! When I first ran those six miles, I thought, “I will only stick to running 5 and 10k’s. Long distance is not for me”. And then a friend bought me an entry to my first half marathon for my birthday and there went that pledge! I was hooked. Never mind the fact that my weakness is long distance running, I still love it! I ran my first marathon a year later and I am soon to run my 2nd - Only eight months after my 1st. Craziness!
To celebrate my two year Runniversary (I think I just like saying Runniversary. Runniversary…Runniversary…Okay I am done), I put together a gift basket full of my favorite running snacks and fuel plus a few bonus items that I want to share with one of you!
If you want this basket O' goodies simply leave a comment on this post telling me when your Runniversary (there’s that word again) was/is and how long you have been running. For you non – running folks out there, leave me a comment about something that you are passionate about. It could be anything, and how long you have been doing it for.
Extra entries to those who:

And of course let me know you have done so.
One lucky winner will be chosen randomly using an electronic generator next Friday August 19th.
