Just Do It: My First Blog Post!

Hello there, Internet!

After being an avid blog reader for many years, I fell in love with the idea of creating a blog that combines three of my passions: writing, running and eating delicious food.  But for so long I was paralyzed by the fears and doubts running through my head.  I’m terrible with technology (the TV remote is my sworn enemy) and I was afraid that creating a website would be an impossible process that was only capable by computer science majors and geniuses.

So I went back and forth on the idea until finally I realized I might as well go for it, because why the hell not? I really couldn’t think of a legitimate reason why I shouldn’t at least try.  So I clicked a few buttons, typed a few paragraphs, and here I am today!

I was also deeply inspired by this quote that an old wise man once told me:

(via Adweek.com)

Pretty original, eh?  Well I believe this saying applies to any challenge we face, whether it be writing a blog post or training for a 5k.  Usually the hardest part is lacing up your shoes and walking out the door.  It’s weird, sometimes the runs I dread the most turn out to be the most rewarding.  So if you get out there and just do it, what do you have to lose?
