Running/Fitness Blogs and Sites

  • Skinny Sweet Pea
    A fellow female getting out there and getting fit.
  • Running is Funny
    This guy is great, so funny! Love his Carnival of Running entries.
  • Map your Running Routes
    There are several sites that do this, but this is the one I've used for a while. Not only can you map your route in detail (I recommend the "hybrid" setting, which puts the map on top of a satellite photo so you can see the sidewalks in your neighborhood), you can also search through routes other people have saved on the site and find a route you hadn't thought of!
  • Cranky Fitness
    The title says it all--a woman (now joined by a co-poster) after my own heart.
  • Ask the Penguin
    More Penguin, this one a q and a blog that's worth reading.
  • Penguin Chronicles
    John "the Penguin" Bingham is a champion for slow runners, though he's sped up in recent years (at least by my standards). Nonetheless, he speaks to all runners and is funny and accessible.
  • Jeff Galloway's Blog
    Galloway's walk/run method changed my perspective on running and made marathoning a possibility for me and many other people.

Favorite Non-running Blogs

  • Zen Habits
    I admit, I'm an organizational junkie--I obsessively mind my calendar and to do list, and I like keeping things efficient and orderly. Zen Habits has lots of good tips that keep me in line.
  • Pasta Queen/Half of Me
    Jennette Fulda's blog started out as a weight loss journal, chronicling her journey losing half her weight. Now she continues writing about life in a thoughtful, clever way.
  • Vintage Rescue Squad
    My friend Sue's blog about her junking experiences--she's a witty writer and a creative soul, check her out!
