I follow a few other blogs and as I was reading one the other day I realized that it was not written in the author’s voice. I could just tell that it sounded like a woman writing the post on a male-voiced running blog. As I scrolled further down (and later looked back at the top) I saw that it was indeed a different person and yes, a woman. There was a small blurb at the end of the post that stated a few things about her and where else she writes. So I started thinking maybe I could incorporate the same idea into my blog. After all, variety is the spice of life and this would be a great way to increase readership.
I don’t expect to get any Runner’s World contributing authors to post to my site (maybe one day!), but I think it would be really awesome if some friends who have been or are getting into the sport of running (or even triathlons) want to take a stab at sharing an experience they have had. Anything goes really–you might consider: anxiety on race day, finding the runner’s high, losing weight, beating a time, or finding a new hobby in something that was once a scary prospect. What is your story? I want to hear from you!
