Do you celebrate your "run-iversary" ... and if so, how? @mealsandmiles shares her celebration here:

The first runs were terrible; I couldn’t even make it to the end of the street and back without stopping to walk. I was slow and out of shape, but I was determined. I knew nothing about running – nothing. Which is a good thing because that meant there was no added pressure of knowing better either. I wore cotton clothes, the wrong shoes, and ran as far as I could for as long as I could without even a guess to what my pace was or total distance covered. I didn’t know any other runners, so there was no one to compare myself to. It was just me, the road, and my iPod. I’m actually glad I didn’t know about running blogs then, there might have been too much pressure to “do it right” and I might have given up. Not knowing anything in the very beginning was a blessing in disguise. I was proud of my accomplishments because it was all I knew.
