7 miles easy / no Garmin
During my long run on Sunday, I was thinking about all the blogs that I read (mentally going through my Google Reader) and how inspiring many of these bloggers are. Long run = lots of time to think. Anyhow, I thought it would make a great post: bloggers that inspire (me). Let’s spread some blogger love…
Kara and Alyssa
These girls are ultramarathoners. They are both currently training for a 50-miler (yes, you read that correctly – not 50K – because they have been there, done that – but 50 miles). That’s like finishing a marathon and then turning around and running back to the start line. Impressive. I have to mention that Kara has a 1-year old and does two-a-days to get her miles in while Alyssa dabbles in triathlons on the weekends. I definitely see ultras in my future and I would love to run one with these ladies!
Jen’s blog was one of the first I ever read and PBR is still one of my favorites. Jen is a yoga teacher, BodyPump instructor, and newly crowned certified personal trainer. Her teaching schedule each week makes me dizzy and yet she still finds time to fit in her own workouts. Oh…and she has amazing arms! I keeping thinking that if I go to a BodyPump class (and then be consistent with it – that’s key), my arms will look like hers!
I feel like Cindi is my running twin, except that she logs an impressive amount of miles. For her last marathon, she logged 70 mile weeks! 70 miles?! And throw in a pilates class or two. She also works full-time and has 2 kids. Impressive.
Lauren has a marathon PR I can only dream about (3:18). In addition to being a super speedy runner, Lauren writes great blog posts. I have serious creative writing envy every time I read her posts. And she’s running the Hood to Coast relay this weekend with Team Nuun (her team name is After-NUUN DeLight)!
Rachel had a baby 2 months ago and is already signed up for her first half marathon post-baby (if fact, she’s already training). Not only did Rachel run throughout her entire pregnancy, she ran 2-5Ks right before she gave birth (as in, the week of). She’s also a Girls On The Run coach. Impressive!
