I agree with doug and others - http://www.dcrainmaker.com/ does his technical tests on some amazing triathlon and other globe trotting trips and with John Binns - http://www.runningshoesguru.com/ is great if there's a particular shoe you are interested in.
Shameless : How to write a blog regularly and keep it fresh is beyond me, so I write on pages and update them when I have something worth adding. http://www.squidoo/starting-running covers the hard earned lessons from my early years (too basic for you guys), but you might find something useful amongst this collection http://www.squidoo/runner-tips of solutions I wish I'd known earlier.
Personally I don't follow too many running blogs, these days I use twitter more, you can just search things like #nikepro and everyones runs and times will appear.
However I've just started my own running blog to record my progress on a 500 mile year run, more to raise money for the charity than anything else though, have a look if you want: http://iwouldrun500miiles.com
Can I also add a shameful advert for my own blog which, like some others, is exorbitantly unpopular (but also very new). I talk about races I enter, barefoot running, running books, thoughts on running form and technique, pro athletes, etc.
I'd love any coments about the content, advice on anything I speak about, or just to see another visitor look at it, ha!
You can find it, if you want to, at: barefoottc.wordpress.com.
This has got to be one of the BEST blogs I have seen run to be happy
Love the name too as for me it's of the main Benefit of Running!
http://www.trailporn.com/ - entirely safe for work and completely addictive.
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
That's the third time youve plugged that blog.
I don't read runner's blogs because most of them go:
I went for a run today. First I moved my left foot, then I moved my right foot, then I moved my left foot...
yadda yadda yadda
So did I, but I don't keep going on about it.
Trying to get popular by promoting the writings and ideas of people you don't necessaily know and quoting their opinions is in my view deeply suspect because that's how Hitler started.
It's the 4th time he's plugged his blog!
How needy is that ?
Hitler plugged blogs? Blimey. I'd always thought he was a bit of a nut job who became leader of Germany, did some stuff that we all think is crazy, and killed a lot of innocent people, but he plugged blogs too? That's really, really is bad.
http://tobzrunning.blogspot.co.uk/ is my favourite
http://1095miles.com is a good streak running blog!!
this is a serius blog about strength and conditioning for runners.It hasn't been up for a long time but looks very promising. Running science in plain English.
Plugging your own blog there Sarramian?
In the last few years there has been a boom in the running world, with more and more people taking part in endurance sports. Unfortunately, I think there is a lack of honest and evidence based information due to the huge window of opportunity for big companies to make profits.
What's that supposed to mean???
