The Running Blog

For the last year and a half I blogged about my running journey on a blog entitled "Run My Guts Out".  It's essentially what I do every time I hit the pavement, and it has been really fun for me to share my journey with others.  It was a real source of encouragement, information and advice, as well as friendship for me.  I was able to connect with people I never would have met otherwise, and these people have enriched my life.  A few weeks ago some of us got together to say goodbye to one of our fellow bloggers- Julia- who is leaving Utah for bigger and better things.

I love these girls!  They are such a source of inspiration to me and I am so grateful for each of them.
Ashley, Julia, Me, Rachelle, Janae

Modern technology is such a blessing in how it allows us to connect- with old friends and new friends.  I felt it was time to say goodbye to my running blog.  Will and Annie no longer nap, and I couldn't seem to blog without it taking time away from them.  A quote from President Monson really sealed the deal for me:

"This is our one and only chance at mortal life—here and now. The longer we live, the greater is our realization that it is brief. Opportunities come, and then they are gone. I believe that among the greatest lessons we are to learn in this short sojourn upon the earth are lessons that help us distinguish between what is important and what is not. I plead with you not to let those most important things pass you by as you plan for that illusive and nonexistent future when you will have time to do all that you want to do. Instead, find joy in the journey—now."

Blogging isn't important (well, unless it's your family journal like this blog is), and my time with my little kids is beyond precious.
