This past week, Running My Own Race turned one year old. I started blogging last year as I started training for the Fargo Marathon and have had no shortage of things to write about since. It's been a lot of fun to connect with so many people from near and far. Blogspot makes it so easy to decide to write a blog one minute and start publishing the next.
I've decided to move my blog to my own web page, runningmyownrace.com. The main reason I'm moving it is my own curiosity about setting up a domain and how to design a web page. I would also like a little more flexibility with some of the structure of my page, but it really isn't a knock against blogspot.
If you head over to my new site, you'll see that it looks a lot like this one. All of the old posts and comments are over there. You'll also notice that there are some tabs at the top of the page. One of them says "Contest Entry." I know some of you may have to make a change to a bookmark, a link, or something in your reader to make the switch with me. I have a little contest as a thank you for making the switch. If you go to the Contest Entry tab, leave a comment and I'll enter you in a drawing. You'll have to go and check it out to see what the prize is. Leave a comment by noon on February 14th and you will be entered.
When I first started this blog, I didn't want to tell anyone about it. I was self conscious and didn't know if anyone would really care about what I thought about running. The most rewarding thing about this process has been reading about what everyone else is up to, where they are on their journey, and what they think about running and all kinds of other things. Thanks for visiting me here and all of your encouragement. I hope you'll stay with me so that the only thing that really changes is the address in your browser.
