Go Blog Yourself! TiaRT
Today's topic for the Runner's Lounge Take it and Run Thursday, is about running blogs. The million dollar question is Why? Why do I blog?
I was inspired and entertained by reading and lurking at a few blogs. I enjoyed reading blogs so much that I started my own. In November 2007, Chubby Chicks Run Too was born. When I started, I was just returning to work after maternity leave and I really wanted to become a runner again. I chose to blog because I wanted to track my journey of weight loss and to be accountable for how many miles my Saucony's could take me.
Although this is technically a blog about fitness (and I use fitness loosely), many of my posts have nothing to do with running or weight loss. This place has morphed into more of a documentary of my crazy life of trying to balance a family, jobs, and doing something for myself that I love. This is the place where I can dump my random thoughts, vent my frustrations, and celebrate my successes.
I love reading blogs as much as I like writing posts. I have learned so much from the community of fellow bloggers. I am inspired daily and get tons of laughs. It is fun to be able to share these experiences "friends". Someone sent me a piece of flair on Facebook that says..."I love my computer because my friends live in it". So. True.
I truly love all the comments. They keep me motivated! Speaking of.....I have some reading to catch up on (451 unread posts????). How long was I out?
