I will be on vacation for the next two weeks in Nicaragua and will have extremely limited access to Facebook, MySpace and the Blog, so please allow me to direct you to some blogs that I frequent and enjoy. Until I return: Run Strong, Finish Stronger.
Marathon Mama: An extremely talented (and fast) runner. Her blog has been featured on the Rock N Roll Marathon Newsletters, specifically the recent San Jose Rock n Roll Marathon. She has a huge following, and rightfully so.
In Steph’s Shoes: The Road to 26.2: Recently completed her first full marathon in Detroit. An avid runner and a great writing style. If you are looking on how to prepare for your first full distance, her past posts will help. Heck, if you are looking to complete any distance, they will help… she debuted with a sub 4-hour time.
Between the Miles: The thing I enjoy about this blogger is the efficiency in the posts. I tend to ramble, I know. But this one is perfect — quick and to the point, but with the right amount of useful information.
Run Faster Mommy: You would think I am a mother with the blogs I read. This site is packed with useful information and a touch of day-to-day humor. Great site with another huge following. be sure to check out the comments section for each post, there is some great insight from the community.
Girl Who Loves to Run: She hasn’t been posting as much lately, but when she does, I enjoy them. A recognized author and excellent blogger. A blend of family and running. The balance we all try to reach.
Runnrgrrl’s Blog: Fresh off a Boston Qualifier, with no Garmin, and the Pace Bunny passing her… Great blog, Great accomplishment.
Dean Karnazes Blog on Runner’s World: Dean Karnazes… enough said. Ok, for those of you looking for more. This man is a running icon. He is known as the Ultramarathon Man for a reason. I highly recommend reading the blog and learning more on his website.
There is a short list of what I read online. Of course there is more, but maybe I’ll save those for my next vacation. If you have a blog and want to share, be sure to put a link in the comments section for others to enjoy.
I’ll see you in two weeks and good luck to all runners in events coming up. New York is coming up. GOOD LUCK PATRICK, LORI AND CHRIS. You guys are going to do great!
