A Surprise Award

Happy Tuesday! Things are starting to return to normal (whatever that is)  here after the last weeks activities.

Is this good or bad? Lol! Is there such a thing as normal?

The sun is shining today and summer is still trying to hang on. I like the sunshine and warmth. I like that it’s warm but not oppressively hot and humid; although the humidity is higher than normal for fall. I do hope that it cools down a bit and the humidity disappears for the races, that are now less than two weeks away! My butterflies are starting to develop butterflies; by the way! I talked to my friend, Sid, this morning (he’s running the Baltimore Half with me) and he said he still gets goose bumps before each race. This is a man who has run over 200 full marathons and too many other races to count!

Today I am sharing a little something that happened last week. With the week being so crazy busy and my postings minimal, I had to wait to share.

Wednesday morning,  I woke up to an email from Feedspot Blog Reader! My blog. This blog.  Grandma2Glamma, was selected as one of the top 15 fitness over 50 blogs!!!

To say I was surprised would be putting it mildly! I am honored that my little contribution to the world of fitness and sharing my stories and journey with you has been recognized. I’m not quite sure how it happened but I’m sure your support, dear readers, was a big contributing factor. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for liking, commenting, and sharing the blog and/or the social media posts. That is what helps to get the word and the blog out to more readers. I am honored and humbled to be selected. I hope to be sharing many more stories and endeavors with you.
