Happy Blog-iversary!

Well, ladies and gents, today marks one year for Life After Swimming.  Just a year ago, I didn’t think this would actually catch on.  Having ONE comment on a post made my life, and it was usually someone I know from home.  Here’s my first post I wrote about my swimming journey.

So much has happened in the past year, and I have loved every second of the wild ride.  I really feel like I grew up this year.  I moved into an apartment by myself, got some good jobs, and grew closer to the people who mean the most to me (while also weeding out some others).

Here’s a little recap of what’s gone on in the past year:

I tried horned melon (and all sorts of other things I never thought I would ever eat).  I became so adventurous with my eats in the past year!

I went to Niagara Falls with my family + Trav.

My cousin got married!  And I chopped my hair for Locks of Love!

I signed up for a full marathon, got injured, switched to the half marathon, and had to back out of the marathon.

I rode 65 miles for the first time in my life.  And will be doing the same thing in September.

I saw my favorite bands in concert. 

I coached high school swimming while making it through my first full year of grad school.

I met BBMak.

My cousin and his wife had the most beautiful child in the world. 

Geno turned one!

I learned that I actually like coffee!

I went to Bethany Beach.

I went vegan for Lent.

I had my first blogger meet-up!

I signed up for my first sprint triathlon!

And these are only just SOME of the things.  I had an amazing and busy year, and I see so much more greatness in the near future! Smile

Happy one year to Life After Swimming, and thank you for all being supportive readers! I wouldn’t have lasted a year without you! Here’s to another happy, productive, and exciting year!
