Great Blogs, They Spilleth Over

My poor Google Reader.  It just gave up.  It couldn't handle the pressure.  Day after day it would tell me that I had 1000+ posts ready to read.   Since I can't get enough of blogs, I kept adding and adding to my Reader - grouping, filing, categorizing them all so I wouldn't miss anything.  Now when I try to open it, it gasps for air begging me to cut back and catch up.

I created a monster.  A monster list of great running blogs.   And while that's not all bad there are days when I wonder if I will ever catch up.  How I look at it is that blogs are someone's house and I like to go "visiting" and see what is up at their place.  Hang out, look around, catch up on their life.   I just never seem to find enough time to "go visiting".   

While I couldn't possibly list all of the blogs I read, I thought I would give you an idea of a few of those I try to formally "visit" but at a minimum I am always lurking about:

When I need a good laugh

Nitmos, Vanilla

Seems like a real life runner like me (but writes 100 times better)

CoffeeBetsy, Nat, Nancy, Zoomylicious

Says it like it is and usually puts a grin on my face

Sarah Jo Austin, RunJess, Topher, Laura

Whose running never ceases to amaze me

Marathon Dude Bill, The Laminator, Bob, Ovens2Betsy, Heather

New to Me Blogs That Are Becoming New Favorites

ChicRunner, Dando

And there are literally hundreds of other blogs I have had the great luck to find and read and many of them I still find time to visit and read.  Most days I feel like the luckiest gal in the world.  I have an unlimited pool of reading material on running! 

The theme for this week's Take It and Run Thursday is Running Blogs.  I am looking forward to hearing about running blogs on your list.  I am going to try to find a some time to tidy up my reader and make a little room for some of your picks.  And then I am going to find some time on my social calendar for a little "visiting" this week.  Oh boy - I just can't wait!
