She was already a SOMI for me, but Runner's Kitchen today:

"The other day I found myself deep in the trenches of old blog posts, Spring & Summer 2009 to be exact. And oh goodness. If I was still writing crap like that, I hope to God someone would go call me out on GOMI (get off my internets for the uninitiated)."

Seconding These Happy Miles, Twenty-Six and Then Some and Hungry Runner Girl. I also love Speed Laces, Amazing Races. She's a triathlete and taking a blogging break right now but she's incredibly fast, smart and funny. She completed an ironman last year. (Sorry, I would provide a link but I'm on a phone and lazy).

Does anyone read Diary of an Average Runner? http://diaryofanaveragerunner.blogspot.com

I used to read it back when she aspirational for me – only slightly faster than me, but now she's much faster but I enjoy how she's serious about running and gives good recaps of her training. She's not inherently GOMI-esque either.

I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned these yet, but I LOVE shutupandrun.net and eatdrinkandrun.com. Both have a great self-deprecating wit and I love reading about their training schedules. Definitely check them out!!!

I have Speed Laces in my reader but she's always kind of bugged me. Her blog JUST went private but she had some serious rich white girl whining in her most recent post. Like how difficult some of her life choices are. (The post is still in my reader.) Shopping spree or $350 bike shoes?? A choice quote: "I have foodie friends who have had a lot of amazing meals in D.C., and my must-visit restaurant list is a mile and a half long. It doesn’t get any shorter if I put that $50+ toward more gear. "

 

She acknowledged that she sounds like a privileged whiner, but still wrote a long ass post about her "difficult" financial choices.

 

PS Eatdrinkrun is awesome and hilarious. She's been posting less lately…come back to my internets Shelby!

I'm inclined to question the recommendation of "shutupandrun" from someone with the user name of "shutup" with only 7 posts on GOMI.

It was shutup and run, that posted that we catladies at GOMI were bottom feeders (she later deleted the post).  I don't read her blog though.

I'm a lurker and new poster and these suggestions are great.  It seems most recommendations for running reading out there point to the blogs that are generally the worst offenders on GOMI.  There is only so many iced coffee photos I can handle.

I follow several local ultra blogs, but like another poster said they're not posting much content about their training but rather posting race reviews and recaps.  And they're all dudes 10-15 years older than I, so I can't always relate to what they're posting about as a near-30 novice female trail runner.  All I can relate to is that I run the same races as them in PA, albeit a bit slower.

Not sure if it's been mentioned here but strengthrunning.com is one of my go-to's for advice on injuries and training.  He went a little off the paleo deep end (and I admit I have in the past, as well) so I generally ignore the nutrition content and stick with the injury prevention advice.

Also, eatwatchrun.com – she's not fast, she's not super skinny, and she tends to drink Bud Light (aghhhhh) but she has a great sense of humor and snark.

I'll second that rec. Her posts about recovering from injury are relatable and useful, and sometimes she posts amazing photos of her trail runs.

Eh, SUAR is more of a GOMI for me. She's a pretty talented athlete who lives in a beautiful area, but IMO she overtrains (like continuing to run 5- 10 mi at a pop immediately after being diagnosed with multiple hamstring tears) and the 11-yo-boy poop / fart humor is tiring. I have yet to check out eatdrinkrun, though, and will do so.

I like http://ariavie.blogspot.com/ (I follow her on tumblr). She does a lot of trail running with her husband.

They ran a 50 miler in Alaska in the winter and they often stop at Dairy Queen after long runs.  He's pretty fast, but she's "normal fast."

 Also http://www.runwithrach.com/ has done ultras & an ironman. She does post a bit of random life stuff typical of tumblr-based blogs, but I happen to like stuff like that.

ariavie found my post: http://ariavie.tumblr.com/post/25103545071/how-i-choose-the-blogs-i-read

I made a mistake in that the Alaska trail race was a 50K, not 50 miles. A pretty big difference, but still impressive to me.

I also didn't mean anything degrading in comparing her and her husband.

I really like No Meat Athlete. I think his writing is super encouraging and he has some great meal ideas as well.
