Happy One Year Blogiversary to Me!


It’s hard to believe one year has actually gone by since I started my happyTRIgirl blog!  I have loved sharing my workouts, my goals, my race results (the good and not so … um, stellar), my pictures, and my life.  Sometimes I have wished for more time to spend writing and recapping races, but work and life can get in the way of this hobby.

The best part of blogging?  Meeting and talking with other bloggers!  I have been inspired by so many and am thankful for all the people who follow my blog, through Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, and email.

I’m heading into 2014 with new training goals and I’d love to keep sharing my journey with you.

Do you have a favorite blog post of mine?  If so, what is it?  I can tell you from the audience stats, this blog had the most views:

Ironman Canada Race Report!

IM Canada medal

This one, I had the most fun writing ….

The Art of Snot Rockets

…. Oh, I can’t forget this little nugget …

New York City Marathon

Looking back over a year of blog posts as I was writing this blog put a smile on my face!  It’s like re-reading a journal, only better because it’s laced with photos and nice comments from my friends (YOU!).  So, with that … here’s to another great year friends!!



Three Things Thursday

1.  I just learned about the app VINE  … it’s like Instagram, only video sharing!  Of course, I’m hooked already.  Find me at, you guessed it … happyTRIgirl!



This link will take you to one of my Vine posts!

2.  I have a visitor from North Carolina!!  His name is FLAT STANLEY.  For the next couple of weeks, Flat Stanley will go where I go and get tons of camera time before heading back to his family with some goodies from Washington State!!
