Seven Hundred!!

Can you believe this is my 700th post??? I'm a regular blabbermouth apparently.

Anyway, just wanted to take the time to say thank you to all my readers, those who have been with me from the start (or rather re-birth of my blog) and all the new(er) readers who have come along and joined me on my journey. I hope I'm keeping you entertained and I hope you continue to come back for more.

I wish I had a cool giveaway, as several other bloggers tend to do when they hit a milestone. I just don't really know what to give away, you know. Hopefully some day I'll have a Muddy Runner giveaway, but for now I'm just going to celebrate 700.

I guess one last thing in my celebratory post is to ask all of you what you want to see more of, less of, in my posts. I'm hoping Cooking With Yvie will become a fixture on Sundays as it has been. I actually got her a cookbook of her own (have I mentioned this?) for Christmas. I got her this one from Paula Deen and it's just awesome. It's right up her alley because she can read the recipes now, and there are drawings with all the recipes' ingredients list. And actually it has more than just ingredients but also the tools you'll need to make the recipe (muffin pan, measuring cups, whisk, etc.) so she can really visualize it. We've made one recipe thus far, some Apple Raisin Muffins last Saturday, and guess what?, they were delectable. So I have high hopes for some of the other stuff in there, and I hope some of that will become fodder for CWY shows.

Lately, though, it seems like my posts have been more about running than before, and there's not quite as much balance between that and some other things, but I think that's because Surf City is dominating my thoughts so naturally it comes out on the blog. And it doesn't help that we haven't been to Disneyland in for-e-ver, but all that will change soon hopefully.

Thanks again blog readers!

700, wow, that's great! I started my blog as a way to express my thoughts to myself and go back and read them to see what I was feeling before races, etc. Only later did people actually find me and now I feel so blessed to be part of a big running community. I may not always get to read you blog, but when I do I absolutely love it! Thanks!!!!

Your words are give-away enough. :)

I just wish I could find the time to stop by more often.

Congrats on your milestone.
