Just wanted to take a quick time-out from our regularly scheduled programming to wish a very, very dear friend of mine a very, very happy (belated) birthday.

That's right! It's THIS GIRLS birthday!!! Ok, ok-- fine. Technically it WAS her birthday yesterday. But, I think she gets the WHOLE week, so we're still to celebrate.

Amy, you're one of the biggest reasons I got into running. You helped me find this huge passion area and I love you for that. More so, however, I love you for being YOU. You're so funny and sweet and loving and kind. You're an amazing friend and I feel SO BLESSED to be able to call you MY friend (and you KNOW I'm pretty possessive of my friends!)

Looking through some pics of you and I, I'm not surprised that SO MANY are of us running and sweating together. You're my FAVORITE running buddy! Remember when we ran my first ever half marathon together??? Now... when are we running a FULL together??

I only wish I had started running when we lived a bit closer so we could be running together more often.

I love you, dear friend. You amaze me. You inspire me. Happy birthday.


  1. You are lucky to have such a great running buddy! :-)

  2. Oh my goodness - this is SO sweet! Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of the kind words! I am pleased I could help out, lil' grasshopper! ;) I am so touched and happy we can have runnerd convos together and have it be completely normal, great long or short runs and most of all this shared passion! Love you right back!

  3. Aww very sweet, happy birthday Amy!
