I really appreciate everyone who follows my blog. I never would have believed I could have ever gotten so many people following my crazy life. I do not believe in giveaways that require people to follow my blog. I want my followers to follow me because they want to, not because they want to win something.
Every time someone follows my blog I take some time to learn a little more about them. I see what blogs they follow and if they have a blog I read some of it. Some of their blogs I read daily and others I stop by when I get time. I wish I had time to read everyone's blog everyday but that is just not possible.
Recently I got a blog follower that I have no clue how she found my blog. Most of the time I get followers after I stumble upon their blog and leave comments on a few of their posts. This follower I have never seen before so I was really curious about her.
This new followers name is Cara and her blogs called 5-4-3-2-1. I usually like to start at a blogger's first post so I can learn a little more about why that person is blogging. After reading Cara's first blog post I was inspired. I would suggest checking it out here. This is a heart felt post about issues her and her mother had to overcome. It is a real tearjerker but well worth your time to read. She used running and triathlons to rise above and overcome some major issues. Hopefully it will further inspire many of you to reach your goals and overcome your life's difficulties.
What is your inspirational story? Why do you swim, bike or run weekly? Do you do it for fun or health? Or do you do it to overcome life's difficulties? Personally it is all three for me. I started for health and to overcome some issues happening in my life. Only after doing it for a while did it become fun for me.
PS: Cara how did you find my blog?
