Happy Blogoversary to me!

I have to admit, I’m very nervous about trying to do this give-a-way. I’m worried I’m gonna be the loser kid in school who gives invites to the whole class, but no one comes to the party. I’ve been working very hard on this blog for a year now. A YEAR. It’s so much a part of me and I am honored to have any and all of you with me each step of the way. We met 365 days ago when I decided keeping a blog would help me stay accountable for my marathon training. Slowly, each week I increased my miles and dedication and we were “There are no downsides in ROJ”….and I completed my first marathon. Honestly I owe so much to my thoughts that people were reading even if they weren’t commenting.

After the race things got hard, and school became hard too and we met braces. Now together we are “Brace Yourself! ROJ Presents A Multisport Life!” and it’s so true! Multisports are more than just competition, in a way for me it’s also school and friends and life overall. It can’t be proven but I also firmly believe I owe this blog to my first ever sponsorship with Team Marathon!

Again, thank you all for being a part of this with me, and let’s keep it up for another great year on 2010’s journey to a 50K. Now for the goodies…normally the “birthday” person gets gifts, but the “birthday” blog is giving gifts. Some of my teammates may laugh at this, but hey it’s my style!


Who wants a free Marathon Bar? I have two flavors. Crunchy Honey & Toasted Almond or Protein Chocolatey Nut Burst.

All you have to do is

1. Be a follower either here or on Facebook.
2. Leave me a comment, telling me which flavor you want.
3. Just for fun, share your favorite memory of ROJ this past year.
4. For an extra special surprise….for a gift yet to be announced. Leave me a comment telling me to enter you in the “secret” contest. Secret contest to be announced next Sunday.

  1. Hi my running buddy!! I'd love to try one of your Marathon bars, but don't know which one. I can check them out in person. πŸ˜€

    My favorite memory was the duathlon (my first) that we did. I will NEVER forget trying to run after getting off that bike. I thought I was stricken with polio!! I remember us walking by that old guy that was volunteering who clearly didn't think we belonged in the race as we were dead last!! I was sooooo proud to finish as I had never even trained and it was GREAT doing it with you, the seasoned veteran!!

    I wanna be in the secret giveaway… but you don't really have to give me anything. πŸ˜‰

    It's been a pleasure to be part of Team Freebie with you!!

  2. πŸ™‚ You know I don't need the samples, but I totally get you! I'm going to do a giveaway next week and I am worried about the same thing! HAHAHA!

    Happy Blogoversary!

  3. “Like” you on facebook! πŸ™‚ Tried to follow you here but I can't find the link?

  4. Happy blogiversary!! I can't believe it has been a year already. Times flies! Your blog has gone from awesome to quite the empire here in such a short time. πŸ˜‰

    Omg those snickers bars look AMAZING. I'm drooling just looking at the website. Lol. The chocolate peanut butter one looks delish.
