Day 1: Why I Participate #HAWMC

This is the third year of the Wego Health's HAWMC, or health activist writers month challenge. Last year was the first year I participated, but only because during the inaugural year being a full-time employee (basically running a hotel) and going to school full-time was a little much on its own - add in being sick and having to write a post every day and I was ready for a nap just thinking about it! But I definitely thought it was a cool idea and I'm glad I could participate last year.

I find often when blogging that I hit a really good or really bad health streak and so I avoid writing for a while. Currently, I'm in a good streak, being able to run (granted, a quarter of a mile a day or even a half!) again and planning my wedding for next summer. Oh busy busy wedding planning! I find HAWMC gives me a reason to come back and really focus on writing again. It doesn't help that it ends right as May begins, bringing with it a walk for the Arthritis Foundation, World Autoimmune Arthritis Day, and National Arthritis Awareness Month! It's a busy time for health activists and HAWMC helps me get in the right frame of mind.

As such, welcome to a month of actual posts every day! Thanks Wego Health!
