Yeah for Friday ! It was a busy week here in France. Some American friends have been staying with us since Tuesday and boy did we have a good time. Our crazy group on the Bateaux Mouches :
But that’s for another blog post ! This week’s Friday Five theme is ” Blogs to read”. You can check out my first blogs I love post with some of my favorite bloggers. This time I have chosen to adapt slightly, to Blogs to read if you are preparing for a marathon. Indeed, I have signed up for my first marathon so I have been scouring the internet for advice, race recaps, equipment suggestions, because I am a newbie.
Here are the 5 blogs that I am reading at the moment :
1. Amanda at Run to the Finish. I find her running tips, book reviews and race reviews particularly helpful.
2. Jen at Running with the Girls. She is actually living in my hometown in Maine, which is a complete coincidence. She runs A LOT, and on the same trails and in the same gym I did / do when I go back to Maine. She just did the Boston Marathon and it was fun to read how she prepared.
3. Deb Runs. There is always something to learn.
4 and 5. Sue at This mama runs for cupcakes and Stephanie at Food and fitness 4 real, two American bloggers who both ran the 2015 Paris Marathon. Following their training and experience was inspiring but I think the one thing that cinched it for me was when Stephanie stopped to see me at km 18. I told her I would be there with water if needed, and she took the time to stop & take a picture. She looked like she was enjoying it, had hardly broken a sweat and her energy was contagious. Here are their race recaps :
Yes, I am a bit obsessed at the moment ! Looking forward to reading the Boston Marathon recaps over the weekend.
What blogs or blog posts would you suggest if training for a marathon ?
Have a great weekend !
