I am not an experienced runner. I don't have any running wisdom to share. And I feel like I am one big stumbling goof running with random goofy thoughts. I try to ask questions (there are no stupid questions, right?) and hopefully, someone sees it and will have an answer to it. If you don't, don't worry. You make me feel less bad about myself and my ignorance. :)
I think I just have made a "virtual friend" with Aneta. She has shared a delicious Green Monster recipe with me, left encouraging and motivating comments on my Facebook wall and my blog, answered some of my running questions, introduce me to different types of fruits, and we even got to "hang out" at the gym too! Virtually. Our first virtual workout get-together didn't work out last week. However, yesterday, we arranged to do a fartlek session together this morning - me at my gym early in my morning and she at her gym over in her part of the world early in her morning. Then, we report back to each other. It worked. Talk about accountability and having a training buddy! Thanks for motivating me, Aneta. Did I mention that we like to "hang out" with each other so much that we decide to "meet" again next week?
The folks in the running/blogging community has been awesome. They dispense product reviews, offer a listening ear and dole out lots of encouragement and support when the running gets tough, and cheer like a high-school cheerleader for every teeny
Here are a number of blogs I read. I spend an ungodly amount of time online reading blogs, and it isn't quite feasible to share with you all the blogs I read about in one post. I will continue to share blogs with you. So, let's start with these first...
Running Diva Mom : She has a virtual run challenge going on right now. Proceeds go to a good cause. All you have to do is just 1 mile, so you can make it fun by running with your kid, your dog, or yourself. Do check it out.

I spent almost 1/3 of my life living in Louisiana and my graduate school friend nicknamed me "Asian Cajun." I really considered Ruston, LA home because that's where my heart is. Risking being a cheese, I found myself there. It was in Ruston where I grow up to be what and who I am today. So, I get excited when I find a fellow Louisianian. I enjoy reading Living in Luling. She blogs about running and life and I particularly adore her "Sunday Dinner" posts where she shared yummy recipes.
