A Blog Series of Favorite Posts #3: Running

Favorite posts about running

For the next week or so, I'm going to do a series of posts--I will share my favorite "oldies but goodies" from the past.

As you know, I LOVE writing lists. This is one I've been wanting to write for a long time, but it requires so much thought that I just have such a hard time deciding what to include on it! I have a lot of favorite posts over the years (as well as very cringey ones--maybe I'll do a list of those soon). I'd have to wear a paper bag over my head out of embarrassment ;)

As of the last few years, there have been lots of different categories on my blog: weight loss/gain/loss/gain; running; DIY/home improvement; mental health/illness; crafts; and just daily life in general. So, I think I'll separate these into categories to avoid having too many "favorite" posts in just one category.

I'll post just a few per day, so if you choose, you'll have time to read the posts. If I post them all at once, it would be way too overwhelming!

At the end, I will also include my most popular posts (which will likely be entirely different from my favorite posts) in case anyone is curious about those. First, though, my favorites...


The Importance of the Easy Run

If there is ONE running post that you read on my blog, it should be this one. It's SO important! As a certified running coach, I can't stress enough how important it is to take your easy runs at a super easy effort. This post explains the hows and whys. I got SO MUCH FASTER when I started doing my easy runs at a super easy pace (11:00+ per mile, when I was training for a 7:55/mi pace for an upcoming 10K).

5 Things I Miss About Running

I wrote this post not too long ago, when I still wasn't running but was really missing it. It was writing this post and really thinking about the things I missed about running that inspired me to start again. It wasn't until a month later, but I did it--I ran three days a week for 13 weeks straight! I have since taken a couple of weeks off, but Monday starts a new plan. I'll write about that soon. And I can honestly say that I'm looking forward to it! When I need a little boost of why I choose to "torture" myself by running, I remember this post and why I actually do love the sport.

Shamrock 'n' Roll 10K Race Report

Normally, I wouldn't include a race report on this list, but this was the most shocked I've ever been during a race and I was stunned for days afterward! I don't want to spoil it if you haven't read it, but this is a fun post to read.

Post a Comment

I used to publish ALL comments (even the mean ones) but I recently chose not to publish those. I always welcome constructive comments/criticism, but there is no need for unnecessary rudeness/hate. But please--I love reading what you have to say! (This comment form is super finicky, so I apologize if you're unable to comment)
