If you write a blog do you ever step back and think about why you write it? I do sometimes and it seems over time that the reasons are evolving. I was inspired to start a blog because I was
stalking reading other peoples blogs and I needed a profile to be able to comment. When I first started this blog it was as a journal for myself, I wanted to capture all of the big a little moments while training for my first triathlon.
Now I could have done this and kept it private but I put it out there in the world anyway, no one was reading it and I didn’t post very often but I still enjoyed it. As my training progressed I started reading some blogs more regularly and posting more often. I still love that I can look back at what was thinking, doing and feeling last year but the blog has taken on more for me now. There are a few bloggers I have connected with and it has become a place of support where people “get” me. There are a few goals I have for my blog going forward, I would really like to deliberately meet some of the bloggers I love in this upcoming year.
I may never be the athlete that wins the race or contemplates going pro, but I could be the one to make people think hey “if she can do it, then I can too”. I hope to take on ironman with a twisted femur, asthma and a demanding career, I dare to dream that I can run an ultra-marathon in the mountains of Colorado.
I believe that I can do these things if I work hard enough and keep a smile on my face.
So the questions of the day are:
Why do you blog?
What do you dare to dream that you can do?
