I'm telling ya, it's brilliant. I just get up and walk my dog. Thanks for the shoutout!

Lol this reminds me of a funny thing that happened to me. I enjoy being comfortable and hence I will wear my PJs for cleaning and when I am home. Well I also tended to get up and drive the kids to the bus stop in them as well. For the pure fact it was harder tog et up earlier to dress my self as well. Well Marty always woudl warn me not to. Then the day came! I was three months pregnant with Quinn and the car broke down about a mile from home. I walked back in mt best jammies and it was a quiet area so no one saw me anyway. thing is no I never learned a lesson I would still do it! It is just that point time in teh morning is so precious that getting up one second sooner than I need to upsets the entire day.

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.

    My friend Sue's blog about her junking experiences--she's a witty writer and a creative soul, check her out!
