On A-to-Z Roundup

Two years back I signed up for my first marathon thinking six months was enough to make myself ready. I fell ill, needed surgery and was off training for three months. I was in bad shape at the start, but lined up intending to run as much as I could. Once I started, there was no question of not finishing, and I did. My first full-marathon was transformational.

The A-to-Z Challenge was no different. I was intending to take a blog-break, but decided to go with the flow as long as I could. Twenty-six drabbles later, I am still alive!
for dropping by and commenting- I will
visit all your blogs, someday soon!!!
drabble is a story told in exactly 100 words.

And for completing the A-to-Z Challenge, Elizabeth Mueller awarded me this awesome badge. Thank you, Elizabeth. I shall wear it with pride.

You continue to amaze me with your drabbling. I was in Saturday Centus for a while, 100 words past a prompt. Took me hours longer to do that post than one of my long, meandering memoir tales. You are an amazingly talented writer, and I'm glad we found each other.

Very cool! Another runner who writes and blogs! How did we not find each other during the challenge?

Congratulations on finishing your first marathon and the challenge! It's obvious that when you set your mind to doing something, there's no stopping you!

You introduced me to the drabble. I have tried - and failed - to get it right. But persistence will pay off, I hope. Thanks for the examples.

Congrats on completing the A-Z. I managed it too, but didn't get round to visiting as many blogs as I intended so I'm still trying to catch up! Glad I found yours :D
