5 Year Blogoversary

5 years ago, I decided to try and make running a habit and I figured I'd chronicle the experiment here on this blog. I figured I'd give it 21 days, since I'd read that it takes that long to form a habit, and see what happened.

Now, 1,825 days later, and 1,685 posts later, here I am. A runner. (And a blogger.) Guess it's a habit now.

So, to commemorate my initial 21 Day endeavor, I am going to run for the next 21 consecutive days. That's right...A streak!

Here are the rules:

1. The first rule of Jess' 21 Days of Running is that you do not talk about Jess' 21 Days of Running.

2. The second rule of Jess' 21 days of Running is that YOU DO NOT talk...

...oh, sorry, got distracted.

Really, there's only one rule, so it hardly needs numbering: I will run every day for the next 21 consecutive days. And, I have to run at least 1 mile in order for it to count.

So, on to the running!

Oh, and happy anniversary blog! You're older than my marriage, my child, and my dog. Congrats.

Congratulations! So that is where your blog name came from. You have done an amazing amount of posts!

James said...

Congratulations hardly matches what should be said. 5 years at both making running a major part of your life and keeping up with blogging about it. Keep it up! Here's to the next 5 years!

You're like the ultramarathoner of bloggers. Congrats. Run well and drink well for the next 21 days. Cheers!

Rarefied air to be sure. Congrats on five glorious years betwen you and your blog. Perhaps to commemorate you could share some of Beer and Bowling's greatest hits!!!

Rule number three......you have to blog about each run. You do realize that now there will be a heat wave in Florida, like never seen before. Oh, and probably a couple of hurricanes too!

5 years of blogging is WAY impressive. Funny how these unintended things become habits too (both the running and the blogging). Glad you tried both!
