I still go running but there are days when I have aching muscles. But I dislike the idea to do nothing at days when my legs can’t run.

Yesterday when I logged in to my blog, I noticed a “Happy Anniversary” symbol in the WordPress header. It mentioned “Happy Anniversary with WordPress.com!” and “You registered on WordPress.com 2 years ago! Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging!”. I am really amazed that I am on this blog here already for two years now. I checked out my archive and noticed that I started out pretty slowly the first months in 2011 but I became more interested in blogging 2012. My activity in 2013 looks already fine too. I noticed it already earlier and this is … Continue reading Happy Anniversary with WordPress! Cool!
