So you should read them, too:
-An amusing review (by a man, no less) of the so-called "Healthy Living" blogs. He manages to capture perfectly why I feel such disdain for so many of these blogs.
-And oldie but a goodie: Washington Ran Here's take on charities, specifically Team in Training. I feel like she says a lot of what many of us think but feel too intimidated to say. (Stick around her blog and read more of it, too. She's good.)
-Emilie discusses why women shouldn't feel the need to apologize to everyone they run with about being slow. I've done the "Oh, no, really, I'm much slower than you are!" dance that she describes before.
-And finally, Bridget talks about a similar (and more annoying, if you ask me) problem: runners who complain about how slow they are, even when they're enviably fast.
And have a good weekend! What will I be up to? Fingers crossed, not much of anything. Maybe going to see a movie. Oh, yeah, and a long run. The schedule calls for 16 miles - hold me accountable!
On I went, out of the wood, passing the man leading without knowing I was going to do so. Flip-flap, flip-flap, jog-trot, jog-trot, curnchslap-crunchslap, across the middle of a broad field again, rhythmically running in my greyhound effortless fashion, knowing I had won the race though it wasn't half over, won it if I wanted it, could go on for ten or fifteen or twenty miles if I had to and drop dead at the finish of it, which would be the same, in the end, as living an honest life like the governor wanted me to. -Alan Sillitoe, "Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner"
