I'm starting a new segment on the blog called "Things I Love". I have done some product reviews in the past, but I wanted to expand upon that and just tell you about all the things I love. It could be running related, it could be baby related, it could be whatever.
Today I am going to talk about my favorite blogger, Amy.
I used to read a lot of blogs. I had the time. I had the patience. I don't have time or patience anymore. Also, I get really tired of the "super-popular" blog that is philosophical, supposedly a resource of all things running/triathlon, and gets free stuff all the time to review or giveaway. I like to read about real runners, with real jobs and real lives.
I have been reading Amy's blog, 26point2ers, since it was Amy and April. I loved reading about their race adventures from 5Ks to ultras. Soon the blog became just Amy's and the snark was awesome. What I love about Amy is that she isn't afraid to hide behind her blog. She says what's on her mind and it usually involves a four letter word and an amazing animated gif. Amy's also real with her running. She has gone from being a participant to being a runner to be reckoned with. Amy has tried and tried and tried to qualify for Boston and has come so close. I root for her from afar and my heart breaks for her when she falls short. I tell her all the time, she's gonna get it. And she will and I'll be cheering loudly.
Amy and I got to meet a few years ago when we both did the Bourbon Chase. After 24 hours of running and a little bit of awe on both sides of the meeting we had a short awkward chat. I'm convinced, though, if we ever lived remotely close to each other we'd be total BFFs. :)
I nominated Amy for Salty Running's Greatest Women's Running Blog. She's up against a heavy hitter, one of those blogs. Please go out and support Amy. Read her blog, cheer her on, and vote vote vote!
Love you Amy!!!
