Happy Sunday! Well, actually by the time you read this I will already be on vacation! WooHoo! I will say in advance that my intent is to be ‘mostly unplugged’ all week … so I apologize in advance if I don’t reply to comments, read blogs, or answer emails in a timely fashion. But for me, these unplugged times are really important since I tend to be an ‘always online’ person.
In my absence I haven’t set up any guests to post … instead I have pulled out three of my earliest posts – ones that seem to really resonate even now. I reworked them all a bit and reposted – hopefully you will enjoy!
When I did my Very Inspiring Blogger award post I sorta cheesed on nominating others … and it has bugged me since. I mean, it was one thing earlier this year when I had two in a row and had nominated all my faves in the first one … or even when I did the mega-awards post more recently. This time? I just didn’t make an effort – and worse yet, I realized that there are a bunch of new awesome blogs I am reading that deserve attention!
So here is what I am doing – I am just going to list
25 30 great blogs I read regularly, including old faves as well as new discoveries. If they would like to do a ‘Very Inspiring’ post (which is really mostly about listing a bunch of things about yourself) – great. But either way I encourage everyone to check them out!

My Running Summary
Another week without a Sunday or Saturday … and in spite of the heat and humidity I really enjoyed my runs. That said, having the cool dry breezy air of Friday was just amazing! I’ll take 365 days of THAT every year, thanks!
The funny thing was hitting my driveway and the Garmin saying 18.73 after I hit the button … and I really just didn’t care enough to make it 18.75 … oh well!
Sunday: ‘Rest’ day (Hike the gorge)
Monday: 10.25 miles, 2:32 plank
Tuesday: 11.4 miles, Abs, 2:17 plank
Wednesday: 9.75 miles, Abs, 2:39 plank
Thursday: 10.5, Abs, 2:07 plank
Friday: 18.73 miles, Abs, 2:32 plank
Saturday ‘Rest’ day (getting ready for vacation!)
This was an awesome week with a couple of late nights (Chris went to Fallout Boy/Paramour and got home after 1:30), but somehow I managed a total of just over 60 miles.
Have a great week and I look forward to catching up when I return!
Thanks for the shout out friend! I hope you have a wonderfully unplugged vacation. You deserve it!! I look forward to hearing all about it when you guys get back!
Thanks Sara … I often found myself as the only one without my phone out last week, quite the change!
Enjoy your vacation! And thanks for the mention!
Thanks Laura! And YOU deserve it 🙂
The shout out is much appreciated! Now I just have to find some motivation and you’ll be reading some useless facts about me before you know it. Have a GREAT vacation!
Thanks Danielle 🙂 I love reading useless facts – and phobias, and crap that annoys you … because it always makes me smile! Our trip so far is awesome 🙂
Thanks for the shout out! Sounds like you’re having an amazing summer! Have a great trip this week, you definitely deserve to disconnect for a while and just relax. Also thanks for listing all the blogs since there are some I don’t read but will definitely be checking out 🙂
Thanks Michele – yeah, I love summer and it is great so far 🙂 And it is amazing how quickly your blog roll can grow!
Thanks Michele – it is funny how quickly I eased into your blog as a fave so that I was surprised at how soon after you started I was hooked! Thanks – you know well the value of down time (important theme on many blogs) and while walking 10 or so miles today wasn’t ‘rest’, it was loads of fun 🙂
Honored to make your list. Have a great trip!
Enjoy your vacation! Thanks for including me in your list! I read many of those blogs, but I will be sure to check out the ones I haven’t heard of!
Thanks Lisa – I am glad I did this because I know I love finding new blogs as well!
Thanks for including me!
Hope you have a fabulous vacation. And I wish is gone to see Fall Out Boy. It’s been awhile since I ventured out to a concert.
Thanks! It has started off great, and yeah I know my son had a great time with a great bunch of friends, and said the show was a blast. Would love to hit up a jazz show in NYC while we’re here, but not gonna happen …
The love is always returned! And dang boy! What a way to get ready for vacation!
Thanks 🙂 And it was one of those epic runs – and the whole day I was just on fire – run, lawn, work around house, getting ready, motivating the kids, I was unstoppable! 🙂
I’m relatively new to blogging and love discovering new blogs, so I will definitely be checking out this list. Thanks!
Blog discovery can be dangerous – you will suddenly lose all time! haha
Thanks for the link/nomination, I’m in progress of a series of responses to the “very inspiring thing”. Enjoy your unplugged time, it is so hard to disconnect but feels so refreshing when you do.
Loving your responses, the great expansive thoughts – great take on this and something I fully plan to steal for the next time I do one of those award posts!
Thank you for including me! And thanks for a bunch more blogs to follow! Enjoy your time unplugged!
Awwwww thanks! Hope you are having a fantastic vacation!
Thanks so much 🙂 We really did!
