Back when I was first starting to run again and to try to lose weight, I started reading Bodies in Motivation, a fitness website run by one of my favorite bloggers, Linda from All & Sundry. The writers there are regular women discussing food, health, and fitness in their lives. Some are trying to lose weight, some are training for their next big race, and others are just trying find a healthier way of life. I’ve always enjoyed reading the site and through it I have found a lot of the blogs I now follow.
As of this week, I am now one of those bloggers! The blog I’ll be writing there is called Sports & Wine, a kind of cheeky Ben Folds Five reference and a reminder of the fact that I’d like to find a way to balance the sports and leisure sides of my life. I’ll be writing a bit about my race training, my efforts at weight maintenance, and my quest to make all the healthy changes I have made into lifelong habits. My first post is up now. I hope you’ll check it out (and say hello) as well as take a look at the rest of the site. There are a whole bunch of cool women over there with inspiring and funny stories to tell.
