New year, new beginnings, continued joy and awesomeness.

Welcome 2015. Welcome to the future, Weemogee. Its about time you joined the blog revolution, and try not to dwell too much on the fact that your mom has been telling you to do this for years!

I am going to study up on blogging, and the things I enjoy so that I can I can provide you with good information, fun stories and inspiration among other things.

Some of my interests include, you guessed it: Running and Cycling. I think you can go anywhere with a pair of running shoes or a bicycle. Mine have changed my life. I have run a few marathons and completed a few century rides. I probably wouldn’t have believed you 10 years ago that I would be where I am today. I can guarantee I don’t fit the image you get in your head of what a runner or cyclist looks like. I’m OK with that. I tried to run my buns off. They aren’t going anywhere. But they are stronger than ever. I was once a couch potato who weighed nearly 300lbs until running changed my life. I am a Clydesdale and I am trying to embrace Running Big and enjoying the challenge. I am trying to shake the self conscious feeling of how my belly looks bouncing in technical fabric. I sometimes need to remind myself that I’m lapping everyone on the couch. Recently, I became a #nuunbassador. I am looking forward to sharing hydration stories, techniques and maybe even some mixer ideas with you!

I spend a good deal of time enjoying the outdoors especially mountains, sunshine and waterfalls. I consider myself to be a whiz in the kitchen, and adventurous in my choices of recipes and ingredients if nothing else. I enjoy learning about food pairings, and cozying up to the bar for a wine or beer tasting every once in a while. I am quite fond of turbo and enjoy motoring in my all wheel drive vehicle. I’m up for just about any adventure. I love meeting new people and exploring new places. Sometimes both happen at once. I am a proud alumna of Alpha Omicron Pi and Bowling Green State University so you will see some Panda and Falcon references among other sports interests of mine (Detroit Tigers and Red Wings, University of Michigan, LSU, Oregon Ducks, Eugene Emeralds and the list goes on and on).

I make an effort to shake the negative Nancy feelings, and to be encouraging to others. I am a fan of gratitude. I saw somewhere that there is always something to be thankful for and I’m pretty sure that is true.

So that is a little about me. I am excited to have a forum in which to share my passions. I am excited to begin this journey while documenting others that I am on.

I can’t wait to hear about my readers. Tell me where you are, what you enjoy, and things you’d like to see posted here.
Its so nice to meet you!
