Let me Explain....

Last night Tom pointed out that my post about the recent Twilight 5k was significantly longer than my post about our wedding. Don't get me wrong - our wedding will forever be one of the best days of my life. I got to marry my best friend, someone who I love and care about greatly. There is no way that any race will top that experience.

However, I am very aware that this a public blog. Anyone can find it and read it, especially students. While I am fine with giving more than enough details about a race, I for some reason, like to keep the big, personal milestones a little more personal.

Someone once told me that I'm good at compartmentalizing my life. This is my running blog, not necessarily my life blog. That's what Facebook is for!  I've seen bloggers write post after post about their wedding on their running blogs, which is totally cool, but now how my brain functions. I have no desire to broadcast every detail to the world. I'll have the photos and the memories to look back on, and for me, those are enough. Blogs are a great way to document the happenings in our lives, but it's important to remember that anyone and everyone can read it, and a little privacy in life is a good thing.
