It’s been a while since I’ve been graced with an invitation to the Blog Games. This one, deemed the “Sunshine Award,” is simply a way to highlight those who, as Runner Susan puts it, “give good blog.” I am honored that Irene has put me in this category — although this isn’t quite how she put it. Any-who, if you find your name on this list below, you have been invited to play along.
- Add the logo to your blog
- Pass the “Sunshine Award” to 10 bloggers
- Link to your nominees within your blog post
- Let them know by commenting on their blog
The nominees (not in any particular order) are:
- It’s only suiting that I would link to one of my dearest friends ever who, although hasn’t posted in quite some time, is the reason that I originally braved my entry into the wonderful world of blogging. Be sure to pee before you click over, as some of her posts are so funny you may pee your pants if you don’t. Oh, and you might need some kleenex too.
- I can’t remember just how long it’s been since I’ve discovered Craig’s site. Here, you will find a nice mix of product reviews, perspectives on running and other athleticism, with a smattering of the little pleasures of life — because that happens too.
- Oh how I love Runner Susan, let me count the ways. One, two, three….
- Speaking of love, I don’t think that I could ever have the words to adequately describe just how special Jeff is to me. In the past 4 years, he’s been the host of my blog (when it was on BTT), my running coach, (at times) my life coach, and the most amazing friend a girl could ever have. He’s currently focusing on things other than blogging but he has left plenty of reading material while he is away from his Amazing and Hip blog.
- I’ve lost track of the time since Dori and I first began reading each other’s blogs. Back then, Dori lived in another state. We hooked up in Duluth for Grandma’s Marathon and years later met up again in San Francisco at the Nike Women’s Marathon.
- The great thing about the internet is that the distance between states, or even countries, need not matter. I love reading posts from those of you who live in far away places. Robb blogs from Nova Scotia and writes on all things from running to music. Be sure to check out the links to his sons’ Slow Cooking Cover band.
- If you are a triathlete, 21st Century Mom will satisfy all your sporting needs. She gives a nice mix of tid bits learned from both research and mistakes made and occasionally throws in commentary on non-sporting topics as well.
- If you’ve ever thought of running an ultra-distance marathon, check out Stuart’s Quadrathon. His most recent post has a very cool video that is so inspiring. I want to run in all those places too.
- For those of you with younger kids, or who are into all things sewing and artsy like that, Brit’s Running Stitch is the blog for you. Brit’s doing a great job preserving those special moments that happen with young kids. As you may have heard, kids grow up too fast. Just in case her memory is not as intact 50 years from now, she’ll always have her blog to fall back on.
- This last blogger seems to have left his mark on nearly every blog out there. At least that is how it seemed when I first began blogging. Wes is probably my biggest commenter and, from the looks of many of the blogs I read regularly, I am not a lone recipient of his virtual support. I don’t know how he has the time but he seems to, and he also seems to fit in a whole lot of tri training as well.
