I had the pleasure of attending the Healthy Living Summit this past weekend in Philadelphia. It was an awesome event and I feel very fortunate that I was able to attend and meet so many sweet, friendly and inspirational (I do not throw that word around lightly) bloggers.
I know that I met so many people that I’m having a hard time keeping track of who everyone is and what they blog about so I thought I’d take a cue from a few fabulous ladies and put together an All About CarlyBananas post.
*waves* Hi. I’m Carly and I’m in love with running. I’m pretty new to the sport but it’s become my very favorite hobby (unless sushi eating counts as a hobby. Then running is my second favorite).
I live right outside of Washington, DC. I love this city. There’s great history and there’s always something going on. It also happens to be the second fittest city in the country! Seeing people out and about – running and biking and walking – was great motivation for me to start exercising!
I’ve been blogging about my experiences as a new runner and my training for my first half marathon since December. I love running races. I feel like they give me something to work toward. I’m so proud every time I’m able to run a new distance. I may be a slowpoke but I enjoy what I’m doing.
For a little more background about me, here are my most read posts:
- When Can You Call Yourself A Runner? – My response to some blog controversy regarding charity runners, slow runners, and people who embrace walk breaks.
- The Benefits of Running Hills – Hill workouts are usually tough but they have great fitness benefits.
- I’m Not a Doctor and I Try Not To Play One On The Internet – Blogs are a great source of information but don’t forget they’re not an appropriate way to diagnose illness or injury!
- Ditching My Time Goal For My First Half Marathon – Why I decided that I done stressing out over a time goal for my first half marathon.
So welcome new readers! I look forward to catching up with everyone’s blogs in the next few days!
