A few years ago I started a blog..... I was preparing for my first ultramarathon. I created this blog, originally called 'Journey to an Ultramarathon'.

In the early days of this journal I became friends with:

1) Gailanne
Gailanne has been a great motivator and supporter. She has been by my side through good and not-so-good times. She is such a wonderful person and I am lucky to have her in my life.

2) Derek

We were both 'ultra newbies' and experienced a lot of the same things. He has great courage and has always moved forward with a positive attitude. I aspire to be like him.

3) Stuart

I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting Stuart in person. He has been a wonderful source of inspiration and information.

I just wanted to thank them for their support and for being there since the beginning. I have learned so much from them and want to say.......
THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

Gotta run.

Have you stayed connected to your first few blogger friends?

Aw, nice post! I'm sure you've given as much support to others as well.

I think I'll remember my early blog followers for sure :)

Thanks for the shout out! It has been a great time keeping up with you from afar and lucky enough to actually meet you when you came to Texas. Keep on rocking and "Thank you" for keeping me motivated!
