Caroline from I Heart Running Thinks I’m Pretty Great (The Feeling is Mutual!)

Yesterday my phone tweeted me an alert that I am the recipient of an award. My first thought: “Yes! I  won!” My second: “Wait, I don’t remember entering any contests.” Turns out, it’s a little pat on the back from Caroline of I Heart Running, a fellow blogger who happened upon Some Kind Of Runderful a few months ago.

I would like to thank all the roads, sneaker, races, and running buddies that have contributed to my success along the way.

One of the amazing things about being a runner is the amount of support the community doles out to one another. You feel it in a smile of commiseration at the track, a nod of acknowledgement on the trail, and in all those finish line cheers. That sense of support and community is one of the reasons why I’m hooked on running, and it’s a big part of why I started this blog. We all need positive feedback in life, and it’s so easy to give.

Thanks for the shout out, Caroline! I’m thrilled that we’re in this together!

The rules for these awards are:
1. Add The Versatile Blogger Award photo on a blog post
2. Thank the person who presented you with the award and link back to him or her in your post.
3. Share seven things about yourself.
4. Pass the award along to 10 of your favorite bloggers.
5. Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know about the award.

Seven Things About Me:
I haven’t used anti-perspirant in months and I smell fine (I think).
I always over do it during strength workouts—DOMS gets me every single time!
I’m allergic to pineapple.
I’m 33 years old and my favorite place on earth is still my Gramma’s lap.
I think hummingbirds are incredible.
I loathe washing silverware by hand.
I believe being active and noshing on healthy foods can help YOU find your Some Kind of Runderful life, too.
