share it

I was so, so, so (a million times so) inspired by your comments when I announced I was running my first half-marathon. I felt like I could go out and run 10 miles! Which of course I didn’t, but I swear, I felt like I could.

I would love for you to share your stories with the rest of us – how and when you started running, your experiences, and anything to help motivate me and the others reading this thread.

If you are interested, send me an email at: with your story/experiences/tips plus a picture (of you, your family, you in your running gear, you running a race, you eating chocolate cake – whatever!).

Over the next couple of months, I want to feature these personal stories right here. They don’t have to be life changing or huge; sharing small and seemingly insignificant experiences can change the world. I know it!

    Hi Mel,

    I just sent you an email describing our running/weight loss story. We certainly don’t think of it as being particularly compelling or inspiring, but I thought you might enjoy reading about us and our experiences 🙂

    BTW, we thoroughly enjoy reading your blog posts and have made many of your recipes!!

    Wow, you guys, wow! I’ve received 10 or so stories from those of you interested in telling about your running/racing/non-running/etc. and I can’t ben describe to you how I feel. First of all, I’ve cried at every single one and then been so inspired, it’s unbelievable. I cannot wait to start sharing them. You.Guys.Are.Awesome. Keep them coming!

    I must have missed this announcement! Congrats! My first half is going to be this summer — I’ve trained before but for a variety of reasons never got to the start line of the last THREE I’ve signed up for. Here goes nothing. We both have got it!
