One year!

Hello party people! Happy FRIDAY!!! We made it to the end of the week and man did it feel like the longest week ever or what?


It is H-O-T in our place guys, like the thermostat literally says it is 80 degrees in here. I had the hardest time sleeping in this grossness. I am not going to lie, my workout this morning was TOUGH. But I sweat through it, and finished. My sweaty workout consisted of a 30 minute HIIT run mixed with ab and arm exercises. I was a sweaty monster through the whole thing!

Today is a BIG day over here at Running In Tiaras, as today marks one whole year of this little blog’s life! On May 4, 2017 I started this blog and was feeling all types of nervous, excited, happy, anxious, and hopeful!

I mean, I can’t even believe the fact that I started this thing, let alone shared it with everyone. Do you remember my first ever blog post where I officially began to write in here? I can remember contemplating if I really really wanted to do this and put my life out there.

I’ve been (silently?) reading lots of blogs for a little over 10 years now (like Julie’s, Courtney’s, Katie’s, Heather’s, Amanda’s, the list really goes on and on and on….), at one point in my college life I would stay up ALL hours of the night and read through previous blog posts from my favorite bloggers. I’m talking like YEARS worth of blog posts guys. Call me crazy, but these ladies’ lives fascinated me!

I obviously had been toying with the idea of starting my own little space on the internet for some time before, but I felt super nervous and really self conscious about putting my life out there like that. And, to be honest, I feel like my life isn’t all that exciting. I am not tech savvy, nor do I even know in the slightest what the heck I am doing on social media or anything like that, but here I am one year later…still plugging along!

I started this blog because I love to write, and I enjoy all things health, fitness, food, and Disney (obviously), and wanted to share my everyday life!

I can’t say I had any expectations for this first year of blogging, but let me tell you when the numbers of readers even went from 0 to 1, and kept increasing, after that first blog post, I was STUNNED. Someone wants to read about MY life? And now, someone continues to want to read about MY life after I publish each post? What?!

Thank YOU for reading my blog. I wouldn’t be doing this without my readers. I wouldn’t be doing this without the support and encouragement from my loving husband and my family. I am SO thankful for each and every one of you readers who reach out to me, and those of you who are silent readers (I see you too, and I was you! Don’t be shy.) 🙂

You all know I LOVE a celebration, so in honor of my one year blogging anniversary, I am doing a GIVEAWAY on my Instagram!! You could win a $25 Starbucks Gift Card AND a $25 Disney Gift Card! Two of my favorite things!!! So, go to my Instagram and follow the rules 😉 Thank you!!snapseed-8
