Several years ago I started blogging to keep myself motivated to write, much like training for a race keeps me motivated to run, even on an 8 degree February morning at 5am. I was fortunate that last year, Boston.com invited me to share my words with a much bigger audience. I started Run Along and you read it!
As a result, I not only had a new reason to write regularly, but also the chance to experience all sorts of new things. I entered races I had never considered running; I ran with run clubs I had never participated in; I met many new people, including my first "Twitter friends" most of whom I still have not met in real life. For all these opportunities I am extremely grateful.
Boston.com is ending the Community Voices blogs of which Run Along was part and this will be my last official post. I'm working on my next project and like running a new route, I’m out exploring the course. You can follow me on Twitter @chrissypants629 to keep in touch and find out where the next turn takes me.
Thank you for reading over the last year. This has been so much fun, but it's time now to move on. I hope you will run along with me.
