I’ve gotten a lot of emails and messages from people in the last few days regarding my decision to stop blogging. Most have been so positive and that means so much to me. Thank you for caring! So, I decided to come on here and let you know why I decided to stop blogging suddenly. In simple terms…
It wasn’t fun anymore.
I’m naturally a happy-go-lucky girl that is full off energy and life! I love fitness, running, anyway of being active and healthy, kicking Celiac Disease’s butt and helping others realize that fitness is not just something on the schedule, but a way of life.
In recent months (ok, the last year) I’ve faced injury after injury though and it’s made it hard for me to write about the positives when I’m faced with the frustration of not running or being as active as I'd like to be. Don't get me wrong, I have so many positive and exciting things happening in my life! I'm truly blessed in that respect. It’s just not fun to write about being injured over and over again. And because of that my content on the blog suffered. I wasn’t proud of my writing any more and writing has always been something very personal for me. I just didn’t like the direction G-Free Runner was taking.
I always promised myself that the day blogging wasn’t fun anymore I’d quit. So that’s what I did.
After some time to process everything now, I realize I was hasty in wanting to delete myself as G-Free Runner, not just the blog…but the image I’ve formed through social media. It’s become a part of me…and not something I’m ready to part with just yet. However, G-Free Runner needs a bit of time and a bit of a facelift before it can be re-presented to the world of social media.
I’m still running and still fighting through this latest injury, but it’s a battle I’ve decided to face on my own, away from blogging for a while.
You can still find me on other social media sites…and please come say hello! Sasha pictures make an appearance quite frequently and I know she’d love the attention ;)
Thank you again for your love and support in this! Good luck to everyone on their upcoming races and goals and best of luck in #Lucky13!
