friday five – favorite blogs

Since it’s Friday, we are linking up for the Friday Five, with three awesome DC area bloggers: Mary at Mar On the Run, Cynthia at You Signed Up For What?! and Courtney from Eat Pray Run, DC.  Feel free to join the fun with your own Friday Five post and be sure to visit and comment on the other blogs on the linkup!


Today, we are talking about our Five Favorite Blogs.

This is a great way to share our favorites and discover new blogs in the process. I have too many to count, so let’s see if I can narrow it down.

1. A Mom On The Run

Kristin is a great friend of mine, but I love her blog. She shares a lot on running and family, and she’s always got some great recipes to share.

2. Amateur At Large

Stacie and I share a love of running, horses and pugs. She also has great fashion sense and I often joke that I neeeeeed her to come visit me and take me shopping. I am hopeful that we will get to see each other at a race one day. We did run last year’s Virtual Pug Run “together” last year, so I will have to see if we can do another virtual in 2015.

3. Candy Crazed Run

Anne is awesome! She used to live in my town, so we have some local knowledge in common. An amazing runner, I love reading her race reports and food posts. We got to meet up at the Gate River Run this year, but only for a few minutes, and I hope we run into each other again in the future.

4. Deb Runs

I have been reading Deb’s blog since I started writing about running. I love her weekly updates, her goals and her race reports. She’s a fun and informative read!

5. My ZOOMA Florida bloggers!

Ok, so maybe this is cheating a little, but these ladies are so inspiring and I really love keeping up with them.

Meghan on the Move – Meghan and I share a love of dogs and crafts and cupcakes. And running. I kind of wish she lived closer, but it just gives me an excuse to travel for more races.

Tutus and Tennies – MB has the most amazing smile and so much enthusiasm. I love following her progress and seeing all the fun races she runs.

The Food Bitch Blog – I can always relate to Devon’s somewhat irreverent sense of humor. She is an amazing cook, a very talented runner and always knows the best hot spots in town. We are trying to make an effort to hang out more.

Mommy Runs It – Sharon is a fellow Galloway interval runner. We are working on getting her out to more local races, and setting up some group runs.

Run HappyChar provides great workouts and lots of awesome vegan recipes. Her family is adorable and I enjoy keeping up with all the fun things they do.

Crazy Running Legs – I love Michelle’s energy and perspective. She definitely keeps it real with fitting everything into her busy schedule and it’s great checking in with her to see where she’s at.

There are so many more awesome blogs out there – I read and engage with some truly wonderful writers, runners and parents on a regular basis. I also love getting to discover new blog through exercises like this, so I’m looking forward to finding some new greats to add to my reader!

What are your favorite blogs to follow? List some of them in the comments or write your own blog post on the subject and link back to the Friday Five!

    You’re so sweet <3 I laugh every time I think about you telling the Marine Corps half story and your "what is this fresh hell?!" reaction to me running up 🙂

    Also, I want in on the Galloway Group runs! I haven't completely given up running straight through, but I'm mostly doing Galloway these days… or I was before I got attacked by a sinus infection.

    • runswithpugs says:

      Oh, I agree. Some nights, I actually sit down and reserve an hour, just so I can catch up on reading. There are so many great ones out there and it’s always tough to keep up. But, it all gets done eventually.

      I will be back in Orlando. There are some really fun races down there, and I intend to run so many of them!
