Time Flys....

Sometimes, I actually pay attention.

My spidey-senses were tingling today! That little sixth sense in the back of your brain that says....there's something you should be aware of. I was browsing my blog to see what I was doing at this time last year and I realized a few things:

#1: I HAVE A GREAT LIFE! I'm shouting that one at the top of my lungs. Let me repeat. I HAVE A GREAT LIFE!!!

#2: At this time last year I was doing the same thing(s) with the same peep(s). Running, ski touring, complaining about the weather...but smiling while complaining. And finally.....

#3: It's my Blogaversary!

I almost forgot all about it. While birthdays, anniversaries, holidays are typically not things I pay much attention to, the Banff Trail Trash blog has been a little surprise joy in my life. It's been the inspiration to capture some images of this amazing place that I live, to share some stories of time well spent on the trails and most surprisingly to network, connect with and meet some pretty cool people. Who knew? So, thanks y'all. I really enjoy sharing my place with you and I really do love to hear from you! And for those of you that I have never heard from, please don't be shy: I'd love to hear from you. That's an open invite. And you don't even have to pretend you like running really, really, really far!



Happy Blogaversary to Me!!

Leslie -

I love, love, love your blog! I really enjoy hearing about your adventures (especially running) and look forward to the beautiful scenery of Banff in your great photos. I so want to visit there one day! You are truly a lucky girl! Thank you for making my day and please, keep blogging!

Happy bloggiversary! Wait until you hit four of 'em. You'll start to question whether there's something wrong with you.

Meghan said...

Happy Blogaversary to you! I'm elated that you started blogging those many moons ago so that we could become friends. Blogs make the world a happy, smaller, more connected place. My life has been so much improved by you!

(Hi Suzanne, thanks for the water! I will be back to that race again someday, I enjoyed it so much!)

Hugs of many!
Meghan

Happy Blogaversary! Thanks for sharing the joy - keep it up - even though I will have to get my eskimo kit out to sit down to read your blog at this time of year - brrrr - wait, I'm already in my eskimo kit b/c it's sort of cold here, too! :-)

Leslie,
Your blog is great and has been really inspiring! It a great way to see and hear about places in the country and world that most of us wouldn't even think about going! I love reading about all these fantastic places and races that you have travelled too!
So long as you keep blogging, your friends and fans will keep reading!!

Love your blog Leslie. Happy Blogaversary! It's been a little over a year since I stumbled onto it and I've really enjoyed your posts (even if I am a little jealous most of the time).

Ah ha, now I get why you get the 24-hour thing I'm involved with. Nice efforts, and cool blog!

Sunshine Girl said...

Hi Ammon and Craig! I'm glad you enjoy. Hey, Will Gadd. Thanks for the comment. You will rock at Ouray, I have no doubt! But it takes some kinda' crazy fool to want to ice climb for 24hrs... :) Go, you!
