    I've followed a few running blogs over the last year but this one has been one that I continue to follow cause the guy is so dang likable and funny.

    Guy from northern Ireland  with a dirty mouth and sense of humor about himself and running. Good to read it in your head with an Irish accent.

     

    What blogs have you all been enjoying?

        +1. I'll refrain from piling on the superlatives, but you owe it to yourself to check out Jeff's blog.

         

        And thanks for the recommendation!

            My two faves are both written by women who do not update their blogs nearly enough. Ultrarunner Sabrina Moran (or Little or something):  http://notallergictoadventure.blogspot.com/?m=1, and this broad:  http://tanyas.wordpress.com/

             

            Sorry about the crap links. It's a phone thing. Both are worth the grueling cut-and-paste effort.

                Lots of good good reading for me to catch up on in your blog. Wondering if you've read Yukio Mishima's 'Sun and Steel'? Just started it. Would love to hear what you think of it, particularly in relation to running. Future blog post? Smile

                    Sub Three is a great blog which focuses mainly on running but on occasion ventures into other topics.

                        I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I AM DOING.  

                         

                        "Mental toughness is built by doing something that is hard over and over again, especially when you don't feel like doing it. Our society has conditioned us to believe that there should be no discomfort, to stop when we are uncomfortable. But the discomfort we feel when we're doing a challenging workout is an important part of the strengthening process." -Jim Afremow, The Champion's Mind: How Great Athletes Think, Train, and Thrive

                          I followed this one for a long time. For me it read like a soap opera, following Vanessa from her home in Canada to San Diego to living in an RV with her boyfriend, running all the while. And the transformation into ultrarunner. Fascinating to see her form as a person.

                           

                          Thank you all for the great links. I'm exciting to have some new reading material! Particularly Jeff's blog...philosophy and running...yes! I was a huge George Sheehan fan 15-20 years ago. It's fantastic to have another great philosopher runner writer!

                              Steve Magness' blog is right on top of running issues, very informative, and backs it up.


                              Posts on  running form, active vs passive components of running, barefoot running, how shoes work (or not), stride length and stride rate... outstanding!
