My belated exciting announcment

I feel like so many awesome things are happening in my life right now all because of this little blog I started back in 2011.  Last month I had hinted at an exciting announcement (mostly on Facebook), but then never said anything. Technically have two exciting announcements, but one will have to wait for another post. Gotta keep ya in suspense! AND NO I AM NOT PREGNANT.

During the weekend that was the Windermere Marathon I had the pleasure of hanging out with Laura for the day. She used to have a running/fitness blog that I found through Sweat Pink. Over the last year she decided to not continue her blog, but instead started writing for Salty Running. Salty Running is an awesome resource for women runners. There are great articles about training, nutrition and races. There are numerous bloggers that contribute to the site on a weekly basis. Some posts are pretty basic training logs, but a large majority of the posts are educational. A lot of the posts are also humorous and down to earth. You feel like you can really connect with the writer and relate to them.

While we were driving around Spokane Laura and I talked about all things running and blogging. She happened to mention that I might like writing for Salty and that they were looking for an extra writer. I didn't think much of it at the moment since I had serious "marathon brain". However, during my down time the following week I checked out more of the website and loved what I read. Long story short, I decided to submit my information and see if they would select me. I have never considered myself to be the best writer, but I do love running and I am passionate about it. About a week after emailing in my information I received an email from them saying that they would love to have me join their team.

It has been a little crazy the last couple of weeks, but my introduction is officially up on the Salty Running website today. I will write 1-2 articles a week including submitting my weekly training log. I am really excited about this opportunity to share my love for running to an even bigger audience. My plan is to link up my articles on Healthy Diva so that you can get a chance to see what I am writing about. I have some articles in rough draft form that I can't wait for everyone to read.

You can check out my introduction on Salty Running HERE. All of the bloggers have spice names and I selected Cayenne because I love Cayenne Pepper.

Thank you for introducing me to Salty Running Laura/Cilantro
