Do you read RunnersRambles? I know she's just new to ultra marathoning, but she's been training for the AR50 mile and has blogged about it.

I don't read that one, but I'll check it out! I love Fast Cory to the person who recommended that one. His 100 mile recap cracked me up.

Another suggestion: LA Easy Meals, she's training for Zion100.

I posted this before on the old forums…  These are my personal favorites:

gotracygo.com

cautionredheadrunning.blogspot.com

discombobulatedrunning.blogspot.com

frayedlaces.blogspot.com – though lots of people here hate frayed laces, I like her.  She is a bit too full of herself at times, but she's honest about her struggles.

ilaxstudio.com/blog

racingitoff.blogspot.com

jessruns.com

runthisamazingday.com

iwannagetphysical.blogspot.com – the only guy in this bunch.  Pretty speedy too, clocking 6 minute/miles

chicrunner.com

Lesley from Racing It Off is a definite GOMI for me. I can't stand her!

"Jill Homer writes an excellent blog (and books, too) about endurance racing, both on bikes and on foot. She started ultrarunning a couple of years ago (and her ex is Geoff Roes!): http://arcticglass.blogspot.com/"

…on that note, here's Geoff's blog as well. FullofSnark, he falls into the "silence… race report!" category, but there are some great musings and insights here nonetheless. I've had the opportunity to run with him a number of times when he's been in town, and he's a really cool/down-to-earth guy IRL. http://akrunning.blogspot.com/

Now I'm curious, why is that?  She's only been nice to me (we have chatted back and forth on email a couple of times), and she's gotten a lot faster than when she started, proving hard work pays off.  (Anyway, I like her, but wondering why you don't?)

Really? She's been pretty awful to me.

 

She's 5'11" and 150 pounds, has been running for years, averages 50 mpw, averages a 10-10:30 pace, and yet her marathon time has improved less than 30 minutes (from 5:12 to 4:44). I don't find that impressive at all. Given her weekly mileage, her training pace, her coaching certification, and the fact that she pays someone to coach her, it seems like she is capable of running a smarter race and a better time. I hate to see someone who consistently falls short of her potential. Also, her blog is just boring.

I just want to give a shout-out to http://www.runnerskitchen.com, because she's talented -training for Boston now- and actually balances a real life -i.e. a job she didn't like so much. She was recently let go from said job, and instead of whining or finding her vocation in blogging, she actually got another job. So Meghan can definitely stay on my internets.

+1 for Meghan.  Her blog is entertaining, decent recipes (healthy and unhealthy) and I enjoy following her training.  Plus, girl is wicked fast.

 

I also have…

http://www.lindsayruns.com

and

http://www.susanruns.com

…in my feed.  Both girls are low 3:00 marathoners (I think Lindsay is trying to break 3 in Boston) while balancing a real life and have a healthy approach to training.

Another guy to add in the mix:

http://www.theboringrunner.com

 

Also:

http://www.alyssagodesky.com

She is a runner/recently-turned-pro triathlete.  She is fast but sees where she needs to improve.  Her coach is Hilary Biscay (though her blog is almost-GOMI) and she takes her training seriously.

Hey, i'm doing one of Geoff's ultra camps this summer in Alaska…i've heard lovely things about him so i'm def. looking forward to it…although a bit nervous everyone will outrun me!

On the topic of ultra blogs i came across Nicola Gildersleeve's blog recently http://www.ngildersleeve.blogspot.co.nz – she has some good stuff in the archives.

I like their blogs as well. They don't take themselves too seriously and they eat more than just salads and power bars.
