A Year Through the Looking Glass

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been a year since I officially changed my blog name from Running With Sass. It was a huge leap of faith for me, and I was really nervous how everyone would react. Thankfully, you were all very supportive, and it was such a great move for me.


I had realized after three years of blogging that there was so much more to me than just running, and so much I wanted to share. I no longer wanted to be pigeon holed, I wanted to feel free to write about whatever I chose. Of course, there is still a very heavy emphasis on running, but it’s nice to know I have the option when the mood strikes me.

I have been given many opportunities this year, and am so thankful for my readers, sponsors, friends, and family. I had no idea what the future would hold for my blog when I made the change, but it has all been so very positive, I can’t wait to see what the next year brings!

The idea of Through Heather’s Looking Glass, is seeing life the way I see it, from my perspective. Everyone may not always agree with it, think it’s interesting, or even care, and that’s ok! It’s my life, and I am blessed to be doing what I do every day. So thank YOU for sticking with me through thick and thin, from Running with Sass to now, and hopefully for many more years to come!

  1. Yes, I was. You are such a great writer Heather. I love reading all of your blogs!

  2. Yes I was! Have always loved your blog! I love it even more now that we have officially met several times! 🙂

  3. Yes, I was and congratulations on your first “new” year!

  4. I started reading your blog shortly before you changed the name (I found your blog right after Marathon Weekend 2013). I’ve loved reading all of your posts! Here’s to even greater things to come, Heather!

    And don’t worry about those who don’t agree with you. The beauty of blogging is that its an outlet for sharing our own opinions. I’ve come across plenty of blogs written by people whose negative attitudes or opinions I could care less for, and choose not to read those blogs.

  5. Yes, I discovered your blog while looking for Princess 2012 recaps. When you renamed your blog, I thought about renaming mine, but I haven’t made the jump yet.

  6. You have such a good attitude and I know you have inspired many people! I found your blog in Nov 2012 when I was search for PHM info as well. Good job!

  7. I love reading your blog heather. I discovered it right before you changed it from Running with Sass and I am now an avid reader!

  8. Omg it’s been a YEAR already? I remember when we were brainstorming blog names. I feel so old. Congrats on your continued success!

    I, too, found you when I was looking for info before I ran the Princess Half ’12. Congrats to all of your blogging success!

  10. Well of course I read it back then! First post I ever read from you was your first castaway cay 5K race recap. I can’t believe is already been a year since you changed the name. It was definitely for the best. Congratulations and much success in the future!

  11. I’m a relatively new reader…and to be honest I don’t remember where I found you from…but have been enjoying reading 🙂 – congrats on all the success you’ve had this year!

  12. Aww I started reading a few months before you changed the name. I love the direction you took it in! Congrats on one year old THLG!

  13. I’ve known you long before you were Running With Sass! 😛 Congrats on a year!!!

  14. Crazy it’s been a year already. I have been reading your blog for a long time, even back when you were RWS! I loved it then and still love it now!

  15. Congratulations on 1 year! I started reading your blog when it was Running with Sass after I found it on Pinterest. It was a race recap on your first Princess Half and I was so inspired by your encouraging remarks at the end that I pushed myself to start the C25k program shortly after. One year later, I just completed my first Princess Half and I have you to thank for the inspiration, so thank you!

  16. Of course! And I’m still such a fan <3 Congrats, love!!

  17. another one from your pre-blog days… 😉

  18. I first found your blog when I was training for my first runDisney race, the 2013 Tinker Bell Half. I love it! I was able to learn a lot about WDW through your experiences before our first trip there last November too! Congrats on making the choice to write about what you want to write, and following the path that’s right for you. You have a way of writing and sharing about your life that really connects with your readers 🙂
