Shoutouts

Everyone is doing something from Runner's Lounge, which I've visited once when I used to have time, where you post all the top blogs you read. I think that is so cool, so I'm going to do it too!

The first blog that I found was P.O.M. which totally cracked me up and entertained me. I felt like I was reading a good book. She is now an advanced runner and gearing up for her marathon next weekend. Somewhere after that Marcy - runner, 2 kids, super blogger - when I go to her site, there's probably 50 comments by the time I get there. Jeesh!

I really enjoy all of you out in blogger world now and find it to be a great support system!

After the first ones, I don't know which ones I found, but here are my top 5 running blogs:

*aron* Aron is somewhat new to running, but just finished her first marathon in August.
She writes about her tales in running and training for the CIM marathon and hopeful BQ in December. She is an awesome commenter :)

D10: I aspire to be D10 one day, as she manages running super fast, is a working mom and wife.
Another great commenter! I don't know how she finds the time!

Laurel: Laurel just moved from Miami to my area- Philly, so it is fun to read about the places she runs since I know where they are! She is going to try to run the Philly marathon in November.

Frayed Laces: Frayed Laces just totally cracks me up. Her comments and posts are hilarious. Cheer her on as she goes for a BQ in December.

Beach runner: A newbie runner, it is nice to read running through his eyes and see what it is like to start out - we all did one day!

and since I'm pregnant, here are my favorite pregnant running blogs:

Muscles & RA : Originally from the Philly area, and a teacher too - Clare is due in December with #1 and you can't even tell! She's running, spinning and keeping super active!

IVF: High mileage super runner girl, expecting her first baby and super tiny!! Still running like a champ!

Debs: Just recently announced her pregnancy and is getting through the first trimester and running a race with 3 other pregnant mamas to be soon.

Ad Astra, Per Aspera: Heather just had her first and is blogging through it. She's inspiring and it is super helpful to read.

Miscellaneous blogs
Sports! My husband the new blogger - I'm trying to get him to continue the trend!

Transplanted Fan : Sports Picks from the super sports fan!

Thanks everyone for sharing your blogs!

  1. Ohhhh...new blogs to stalk! I am so impressed that you are able to run during pregnancy. It was always something I wanted to do but my body would not allow it.

  4. Thanks for including me. I am such a blog addict. If you are running during your pregnancy you will be running, working, and being a mom too. I have no doubt about it!
