Links

There is a wealth of information available to runners from all walks, whether you are just getting started with your first run to get moving, planning your first race, looking for gear, or training for marathons and beyond.  There so many amazing resources available, trying to build and maintain a comprehensive list would be practically a full time job.

But, some of my favorite resources are without a doubt, my fellow bloggers.  Since starting this website I have discovered an amazing community of everyday athletes that take the time to share their stories and experiences.  Being able to relate to their journeys and read their insights is a very gratifying aspect of being part of the run blogging community, and the blogging community as a whole.

Here are a few of my favorite blog sites and some other sites that I frequently visit in my ongoing quest!

Never A Dull Bling

First, the one that started it all, so a special shout out to my wife, Paula…often referred to as Wifey or PK!  Paula inspired me to start this site and supports me every step of the journey.  She has her own great site themed around running, collecting the race bling, and life in general.

You can find her and her amazing community group of friends over at:  Never a Dull Bling

Awesome blog sites

There really are so many, and if I missed anyone that is a frequent visitor please accept my apologies and let me know so I can add you to the list.  If you are new and would like to trade a link share, or just say hello, by all means please feel to contact me.
