I really cannot get a handle on my blog theme issues. HA! Back to the ocean!
I have started Week 4 of TNT training, and it has been very slow, base building. It’s given me a lot of time to research hydration, pace, form, etc. We’ve done intervals, and have not missed a day.
Bear with me when I say I have been WAY behind on my blogging. I really LOVE Twitter. I have a Governor story (still in the works), an LA Marathon story, and have been following great sites in a much quicker way than blogging.
However, something stopped me short today. I got another donation to my TNT training/LLS this morning, and it was to a blogger who I’ve tried to follow in bloglines, but doesn’t show up on my RSS feed. He survived prostate cancer, and ran Boston for the 10th time this year (WITH a diagnosis). He also donated to my LLS fundraising effort, which was how I found him.
As I was eating dinner, I realized how many cool bloggers I follow… and I use the term *blogcrush* because I enjoy how people write…and how their love of their sport comes through. I’m done with sarcasm, unless it’s about me, written by me. I’m not reading many blogs that offend other people.
I’ve been reading these three bloggers for a while (Love2Run when I get a feed). I have no idea how I stumbled upon them, but I think Andrew (DowneastRunning) was first, then I started venturing around and found Eric (sonriserunning). I absolutely have nothing in common with them. They are real runners, I’m a 50 year old starting in the sport. With as much as they run, you’d think their faces would look like shoe leather, but hey…that’s only if they lived in the California sun. They live in Maine or Canada or someplace in the upper side of the country. They take videos in their run in the snow. The snow!
- Love2RunCanada If I get a cancer diagnosis, God forbid, I will be milking it for all I can. This guy ran Boston this year…for the 10th time. A true hero. I am completely blown away by this. And, he has the coolest scar.
- DowneastRunning His kids listen to the radio. And read. Really. I started following him last year when he was training for the PEI Marathon. And I thought. Marathon. Huh. What’s that? I was soon to catch the bug
- SonriseRunning What is it about this guy I like? That he’s a single parent, like me? No. There’s tons of those. The title of his blog tells me a Christian but he doesn’t shove it down your throat. Cool. I think it’s his tenacity. Short, quick posts about very long runs.
My reader is 56 blog posts full. I read all of you. I do. I so appreciate race reports, and when you read mine. I’m going right there, right now. Let me just go Twitter a bit. 🙂
PS-on the up swing of the roller coaster…i hope. it was a good news day
