I love the blogosphere. It’s a wonderful place to share ideas and learn new tips. It’s also a great place to make new friends.
I had such an amazing trip when visiting Spike and Red and was jealous that they lived so close to so many awesome bloggers. I swear the Midwest blogging community is HUGE, especially the running/tri blogs.
One blogger I got to meet while up there was Jodi. Jodi was running the full at Cleveland and was so nervous. It would be her 2nd marathon if she finished, but her third marathon attempt. You see, her second marathon did not go well and she wound up in the hospital just shy of finishing. No wonder she was nervous this go round! But she finished Cleveland and I couldn’t be prouder!
I was surprised and very honored when she asked to do a runner spotlight on me for her Thumb’s Up Thursday. She does these runner spotlights and they are a delight to read and I hope mine is as entertaining as some of the others I have read.
Thus today, I’m thankful for Jodi. She’s a fellow blogger and an athlete with a heart of gold. She shows that sometimes in order to overcome your fears you must face them head on.
Head on over HERE to read my spotlight and tell Jodi HELLO!
Happy Thursday, what are you thankful for today?
Very cool!!! I agree…it seems like that part of the country is loaded with bloggers!!! Today I'm thankful for field day!!! Favorite day of the school year! LOL!
You made me tear up girl! How sweet of you to say all of those wonderful things about me! I love that I got the chance to meet you and hope to see you again! It was my pleasure to spotlight you!
Congrats on the spotlight 😉
See how many times do I have to tell you… Superstar!! 🙂 I'm heading over to say hi to Jodi!
A Pooh quote – that's awesome. Cool spotlight. Congrats!
Wow, when you run you feel free and happy? As an extreme FNG, when I run I feel winded and ridiculous. Here's hoping I can get to that happy place!
I am thankful for bloggy friends as well!
YAYY!! It's awesome! I love your runner spotlight on Thumb's Up Thursday 🙂 You rock!
Today I'm thankful I got my run in during the morning (85 degrees) versus this afternoon (over 100 degrees). Your'e in FL – you know what I'm talking about! 🙂
Nice! It's amazing the connections we make through the blogosphere!
This is my first time here … looking forward to reading more.
Winks & Smiles,
you're getting famouser!
i try to google for local bloggers… i've found 2 so far. woo! not a highly blogging area here in SC apparently. must be 'cause everyone is too busy running around barefoot and pregnant, and too uneducated to know how to use a computer 😉
