Its Thursday! and that means Take it and Run Thursday at Runners Lounge. Now before I get started I have a confession to make. I am addicted to blogs, and not just any blogs - RUNNING blogs!!
Just like the Happy Runner I cannot wait for people to post so that I can devour every word. I often get a call from B-Rabbit (the only other person aware of my obsession) and he will ask what I am doing. I will respond that I am just sitting in my apartment. He then promptly replies "No you are not - you are reading blogs again aren't you!" OHH caught again!
And so I would like to share with you my favorite blogs. Most of them are running blogs as that is one of my greatest interests but there are a few others that I enjoy on occasion. I know everybody (especially me) loves to see a link to their blog in other peoples posts.
I have to give all the credit or the blame to Laura and D10 because their blogs were the first ones I read back in July 2008. I was sitting at work and it was kind of a slow time. I had just finished the Boilermaker and was on that great runners high. I continued to read more and more, accumulating the large blog roll that can be seen to the right.
The next blogger I found was Jamie and I read almost all her posts because she was planning her wedding as well as running which I found entertaining and interesting. I also have been following (ok it sounds like I am a stalker for real!) is N.D. at Lil Runner because she is 17 weeks pregnant (i think?) and it has been interesting to see how that is going along with her running. I feel like when i finally get married and have kids this is very similar to how i will react!
Aron's words of advice are always helpful and reassuring and her posts and sassy and spontaneous! Mark Salinas keeps me healthy and always seems to teach me something new with each post. I really like Julianne because she has little easy recipes along with her running stuff.
Recently I have found tfh at Training for a Half and she has been very inspiring as well as helpful and supportive. Her posts are creative and always a joy to read. Also Coffee Betsy with her adorable son - I just love the family stories along with the running tales. Other new favorite blogs included Girl on Top and Life is a Marathon where each girl seems to be getting back into running and trying to improve!
And last but not least of the running blogs, Marcy. Seriously everyone knows her! She always has a million comments and even at 7am when I haven't had any coffee, her posts are able to get a little giggle out of me.
Besides running blogs I do have a few others i keep on the side, stashed away secretly.
Right now I am really enjoying Rocks in my Dryer because of all the great ideas along with Sassy Molassy - I can relate to her because I am very sassy although I think it is hard to tell on blogger. And if you feel in a angry mood head over to passive-aggressive notes! Its very entertaining.
I am trying to get Winkly to start blogging so you may see her blog link up here soon!
Well if you are still reading after all those links - Yes I did go running this morning. Hello 5:20am I haven't seen you in a few weeks. I ran 5.2 miles in and around campus. It was very nice and I think I am healed since I had no pain. Tonight I might go swimming, but really the next order of business will be to plan new races.
