On this day Sweat Out The Small Stuff turns four

I can’t remember the last time I posted twice in one day but after I shared this morning’s post about my toe setback and yoga and mental health progress I realized that it was 4 years ago today that I shared my very first post here on Sweat Out the Small Stuff so it’s my 4 year blogaversary!

4-year blogaversary!

Also, Facebook’s “On this day” feature let me know that a friend shared this article about returning to running after soft tissue injury that was shared with me via Facebook on this day back in 2014 when I had my ankle injury. Basically it says start with a 10 minute run. Then if all feels good add 2 minutes to the next run and so on and so forth. But if there is pain, reduce by 2 minutes. So even though I started out running about 12 minutes my first run back, I increased mileage (and overall time) much quicker.


When did you start reading my blog? Have you been around a short while? Since the beginning or did you just discover it today?

What other blogs do you read?


  1. I can’t remember when I started reading, but I think I remember last year when you marked this occasion… So it was shortly before that. Love keeping up with you. Thanks for sharing!!

  2. Congratulations on four years of blogging! I just recently started and definitely enjoy it, but I can imagine that after four years it would feel a lot more like a regular part of my life and routine–almost like a pet or baby haha! Well I’m enjoying reading yours, thank you for sharing!

  3. Happy blogaversary! I just discovered your blog today (through your comment on Hungry Runner Girl). Thanks for also linking your first post. I love seeing how bloggers started out. Besides Hungry Runner Girl, I also follow Fit Bottomed Girls, Peanut Butter Fingers, and Laugh Lines (to name a few). Good luck with your toe and your yoga!


  4. Congrats! I love your blog–thanks for all the hard work!

    • 🙂 I used to run so many races and write so many race recaps. Luckily people still view those older posts because who knows when I’ll get to run more races to recap?! HA!
