Do you have one?
Wow RC I'm just reading your blog (half way through your Boston bit) had to stop to tell you how much I'm enjoying it.
I'll look at yours too Stringy and thanks for the brilliant the thread. Look forward to seeing some more additions.
Thanks for your blog too Stringy.
Fractured spine sounds dramatic. Glad you are running again good luck for Blaydon.
I don't, because I can't believe that anyone out there would be interested.
Why would anyone have any interest in how far I ran, what the weather was like, what my splits were, etc., if they don't know me? If my friends are interested, I can tell them!
I started to keep a blog this year in order to administer and encourage the activities of the newly formed running section of my work's sports club (in Norway). That's embarrassing enough, since I feel I'm shouting into an echo-less chamber sometimes. I do not usually log my own normal training there, that would be like talking to myself.I kept it to facts to start with, but have started to throw in hints, health, etc. to pique their interest.
Curiously, I find a lot of people at work like the idea this activity exists. They support it, but getting them to come along, even to walk on a couch-to-5k programme, is very difficult. Maybe the existence of something near to them absolves them of guilt feeling to actually take part. It's hard to psychoanalyse people who don't run
One or two people tweet their training and this certainly makes me feel inadequate (even though I train 5x per week) e.g. "Thinking of a canoe marathon..." "Just got back from 10 k offroad - set a pb..." "Just won a medal with the Swedish orienteering team..." ...
I've been writing my running blog for over three years now (when I started running).
Can't believe there aren't more bloggers in blighty. Loads on the USA RW site. I always find it interesting reading others running exploits.

If you want something quite funny, a bit less serious. but still a reasonable runner, could I suggest www.beerbellyrunning.blogspot.co.uk
Examples of recent blogs include:
- Leading the London Marathon for 400 meters
- Running in the Great British Beerathon - 5 miles, 4 pints, 4 bits of food, 1 almighty hangover
- Running the Sierra Leone marathon
I do not have a blog but after a bit of a turn around in my running fortunes I decided to make a web site ( thats what I call it) about what I tried to turn things round. I thought there might be one or two things that could help old fogies like me who were having a hard time with their running. www.oldmarathonrunner.co.uk
Another bit of light reading not a running blog log type but another slant on getting out there .
and yes it is not me doing it
Yeah mine is a bit different too! I `juggle ` my hobbies!
Seem to get loads of hits from around the world!
