Chapter 2 page 322 - new blog features

As if you have nothing better to do all day except to browse my blog, so . . . I thought I would give you a quick tour of the new aspects of my blog (in case you have been sitting around eagerly waiting for "what's new" with Chapter 2 - NOT!).
For starters, you can now access my blog easily with by going to .  I know you ALL have been with friends away from your own computers with the pre-programmed "favorites" list and desperately wanted to show your friends my blog . . . but only if you could have remembered the dang URL - well, worry no longer -it's easy!!! Just type in and BAM you're there!  Lickity Split!  My awesome husband hooked me up with the new domain as a b-day gift last month!  Thanks, honey - you're awesome!  So now  you ask, why be-amazing?  It's sort of my catch phrase.  I say (and type) it often.  I'm a big fan of encouraging everyone to be amazing!  For Senior Night, I had custom throw blankets made for "C's" daughter "B" and her boyfriend "J" that had their high school logo on it and then it said "BE AMAZING!".  I like it - hope you can be amazing today too!

Wait,  there's more!!! Woot!  Under my "Races (past, present, future)" page (click HERE)- which by the name was previously named "Goals & Races" are collage photos of all the races I've done.  Now, here's the background.  I was soooooooo exhilarated after doing my first race and so incredibly thankful to "T" who taught me, trained me, and encouraged me!  I created a photo collage using photos taken by my friends and family and gave it to everyone who was in the race with me ("V", "L", "T", and one to my running mentor for his seed planting, "M").  I looked back at that photo collage endlessly always smiling and thinking "look what I did!".  So . . . a tradition was born.  I make a photo collage for each race that I do.  I give a copy to each person who does it with me.  On this "Races" page you will find a poor quality photo of the photo collage.  Good news though, you can click on the photos to enlarge them.   The collages generally feature the people who did the race with me and other memorable things that happened related to the race.  Enjoy the collages for all 25 races I've done!

Finally, as if any of you are desperate to know - on my "Half Marathon Training Schedule" page you'll find our newest training schedule we're using to prep for the Fort 4 Fitness Half Marathon in September.  It actually started on Sunday and I am committing to seeing it through. 

Ta Da - there you have all the new features . . . enjoy and thank you for following my journey!


  1. Seriously, you are too cool for school. I can't wait to look at all your photos and stalk your training schedule!

  2. The race photos collage is such a great idea!

    LOL on me and my Hubz making it into your 5-Kilt collage. But then I looked up Rat Race and no representation there! Haha. I'll let you slide on that one.

    WTG on the domain too! Gettin all professional on us! :)

  3. Oooh... I like all the collages you did. You are so creative!
