Happy Wednesday! It’s been a while (about a year) since my last installment for “Blogs I Love”. Blogging isn’t an easy job and I really like to support fellow bloggers whenever possible. That’s why, from time to time, I like to spotlight some of my favorite bloggers. Want to check out parts 1-3? Click here, here and here!
Drumroll please! Here are a few awesome blogs that I recommend you follow this year. These women are smart, funny and definitely inspirational. Enjoy!
Marcia is mom, runner, run coach, and overall awesome woman. Oh, and did I mention she has also completed the Boston Marathon and various international races as well? Marcia’s blog is a great mix of product reviews, race reports, training and various running topics. I also love her sense of humor and no nonsense attitude (it reminds me a lot of myself, lol). I am hoping to meet her in person when I do Rock ‘n’ Roll Chicago this July!
Rachel is superwoman, seriously! I don’t have a clue how she does it all – mom, runner, run coach, “Kids Run the Nation” coach and link up queen extraordinaire. Even with all of that going on last year, she managed to PR the marathon not once, but TWICE. She also got a PR in a few other distances as well. I’m very much looking forward to meeting up with Rachel when I run the Cleveland Half Marathon in May! She’s currently dealing with a running injury, so stop by her blog and show her some love 🙂
Want some inspiration? Then you need to follow Jessie’s blog! I was introduced to her blog last year and I was amazed at all of her accomplishments. This past November she ran the NYC Marathon and became an Abbott World Marathon Majors Six Star Finisher. She’s also working on the 50 Marathons in 50 States Challenge. I had the pleasure of meeting Jessie in person the day before the NYC Marathon and she was such a sweetheart. She’s currently training for the Antarctica Marathon (yes you read that right, Antarctica)! I look forward to cheering her on virtually in all her future endeavors.
I was introduced to Lisa’s blog last year through the Coaches Corner weekly link up. Lisa has a ton of fabulous information on her blog when it comes to running, but I specifically like her emphasis on strength training. It’s nice to connect with another blogger that incorporates a good amount of strength workouts into their race training. Lisa was dealing with an injury last year and I was super impressed with how she handled everything. She’s a very positive person which is super refreshing!
I had the pleasure of meeting Janelle at two races last year and it was definitely one of the highlights of the year for me. She is smart, super relatable and very dedicated to running and her blog. I enjoy all of her blog posts because I feel like I always learn something new. I’m a big fan of her Running 101 series which features a variety of different running topics. She’s currently training for the New Jersey Marathon so stop by her blog and leave a few words of encouragement!
