I love you, you love me… We're a great big running family

Thank you Sara from Words to Run By for presenting me with the Liebster Blogger award.

means 'beloved' blog. Aw, shucks.
Sara and I have been friends since nearly the beginning of our blogging lives. She ran her first marathon a mere 2 weeks sooner than I ran mine, we are similar in pace, lifestyle, and personality and I've come to call her a friend and inspiration. Make sure you check out her blog and follow her journey to run GOOFY in less than 60 days at Disney!

So now, it's my turn to pass on the love by picking five bloggers I adore.

Picking just five is like picking just one favorite kid (except that I only have one kid so actually, that's easier…)

Anyway - here are the blogs (in addition to Sara's) that I hit up on the regular:

Cook, Train, Eat, Race: This site is inspirational and chock full of great information. Jason keeps personally connected to his followers and is always quick to help anyone that wants to make a health change. Whether you are training for your first 5K or your 5th Ironman - there is something for you.

Racing It Off: Lesley is one of my first blogging buddies and she was there at the finish line (and shared her room with me in San Diego!) for my first marathon. Lesley's site offers advice, funny stories, great giveaways and her own tails from the road and trails. She's gearing up for an exciting new journey - she'll be running the Rocky Racoon 50m!!

The Boring Runner: Do not let the name fool you. I have never, ever read one of his posts without at least chuckling if not cracking up. Adam is a no-joke, fast runner and his blog is awesome. The pictures alone are usually worth the click to his blog.








yes! she's posing with Chrissy Wellington!







Miles, Muscle & Mommyhood - Jennifer Leah is one tough tri-athlete, booty-kicking chick. She also has an inspirational back-story of weight loss and total health change. Her multiple-part Ironman race recap was probably the best race recap I've ever read and I would encourage you to read it pronto!





note mentioned abs
If I can't Convince You… I'll at least confuse you. Emz is funny, amazing, supportive to other runners and can run. I mean she once ran for 24 hours on a freakin' treadmill!! And if her abs don't inspire you, then you should check and make sure you have a pulse.

So there you have it. Five of my favs. but I could go on and on.

For artistic, craft and other fun stuff I like Look at The Birdie and Smile

For great picture and warm, fuzzy and funny musings I love The Scenik Route.


So there you have it. 

I love you guys and I love all of the blogs I read, most of them listed here -------------------------------------------------------------------------->>>

but still needing to update with more.

The blogging community has held my (virtual) hand when I need help, has lifted me up when I've fallen down, has inspired me to run further and provided a support that I'm not sure I would otherwise find.

Thank you to all the bloggers out there who share their stories, time and expertise with us all.

XO
Jen
