OH NO!! I missed my 100th post!

I mean, we should have had a little blog party or something for that right? I totally did not even realize I was writing my 100th post last time. It wasn't 'til I got back on to write a new post and do a little editing that I realized I let it slip by without even a mention.

So I looked back a little as to where we've been together. I mean I've dished out some secrets (10 to be exact, see the sidebar for more) explained treadmill dots, been given signs from God and brought to light the little known Gatorade Conspiracy. There's been Port-a-potty wars (which caused port-a-potty ads to show up on my blog for months to follow) chin fat, thwarting by shoelaces and mysterious kid poop.

We've addressed the greatest immediate threat to my sanity, pretend running, running snobs, and the problem with runners. And while we must never forget that I AM in fact faster than a speeding mosquito, I am also, sadly, capable of lying when a PR is on the line, cheating for a cause and requesting do overs. I reviewed E-Gel for you (and am thinking maybe I should do a few more reviews for you all this time around). Introduced you to the my 3 year old bunny hoppin' marathoner, Mighty Mole Man, delayed onset chaffing, my Polish (or Kenyan, still debatable) running partner, fat pants, and my sister, whom for a moment I considered might be the devil.

It's been interesting to say the least. Who knew that this stay at home mamma of two little girlies would have so much to say about running (ok probably eveybody who was forced to listen to it until you all came around.)

And on this momentously missed occasion, I would just like to say thanks to you all for your support. Whether you read and publicly follow or just stop in from time to time, every time I get a new message in my email from blogger alerting me to a comment, a little smile comes over my face. I have just as much fun reading all your insights as I do writing these posts so thank-you for frequently cracking me up and making my day. I consider you all my running partners of sorts and look forward to chatting more with you in the next 100 (or 101) on things like night running vs day running, exploiting my child's weaknesses to run, butt cramps, post pregnancy jiggle and of course more running mom secrets.

'Til next time...

P.S. Did you known my blog originally started over at Runner's World? My first 3 posts were over there until I moved over to Blogger so that I could do a bit more. You won't see these in my archives anywhere so here's the links: And so it begins...; Holy Heck! What do you mean there are going to be hills on my flat course?!; Must you fart during my run! What can I say, I liked exclamation points back then (still do). Also realized I must not have known there was a spell check on those early posts. Oops!
