Rocks on a Fencepost

I realize this is the second time in only a few months that I’ve completely redone my blog. I apologize if this confuses or annoys you but I’ve got a good reason.

When I was brainstorming for the relaunch of my blog back in February and March I was looking for something catchy and cute. “A Buck’s Life” is what I finally came up with. Though it is indeed catchy and easy to remember, it doesn’t reflect my personality or my life. I needed something better, something with more meaning.

After some great feedback from my family and friends regarding the Rocky Road post I realized the rocks were the special and unique. They represented a great accomplishment (completing my first marathon) and more importantly were uniquely me.

The rocks are a great analogy for this blog.  Just as each rock represents a small part of a long training run, each blog entry represents a very small piece of my life. The more I thought about it, the more I realized how true this analogy is and how appropriate of a name “Rocks on a Fencepost” is for my blog.

Yes, my blog is about running but that’s only one rock. It’s about being a mom, a wife, a daughter, a cook, a nature lover and an organizational freak. Most importantly, this blog is about trying to fit all those rocks onto one fencepost while still maintaining my sanity…which brings me back to running.

Everything always goes back to running.
