One Year Ago Today…

… A girl started a blog called Chasing Raspberries. Little did she know that it would change her life. You see, this girl would go on to run her first 10k, two half marathons, a full marathon, multiple duathlons and a few triathlons leading her way up to training for a half Ironman.  All because of a silly little blog that this girl started a year ago today.

A year ago, a girl discovered what having muscles looked and felt like after she started going to a personal trainer. She gradually went from working out three times a week to six times a week. She completed a 50 push up challenge, flipped 300 pound tires, and learned to stand on her hands.


A year ago, a girl started to document her journey toward a healthy life. She started to run. Not because she particularly enjoyed it at first, but because it made her feel powerful and alive. She created new friends along the way, and discovered new sports like swimming and cycling.

A huge THANK YOU to all the Chasing Raspberries readers. I look forward to sharing another year of Adventures for the Soul with you!

  1. You inspire me… the perfect call to wake up. Running took me out of depression before and now when I am facing a personal challenge, I am reminded that I can seek into training activities the solution to clear my mind and free my soul from all this pain I am caring. Thank you.
