I'd like to give my own blog a nomination. "Beer Runner" chronicles my adventures of being a new ultra runner. I love to take photographs whilst running so use them to illustrate the training runs and races I take part in. The URL is http://www.beerrunner.co.uk.

I'd like to nominate Ultra Boy for his honest, down to earth accounts of a regular person doing everything from extraordinarily tough races to park runs with a buggy. He tells it as it is regardless of whether it went well or didn't and he looks at the bigger picture in terms of how running relates to the world in general. Easy to read with self-deprecating humour and thought given to what other runners would need to know about a race or piece of kit. I don't think he has any idea of how good he is https://ultraboyruns.wordpress.com

I'd like to nominate my blog, "Speedy Lizard Racing" at http://www.SpeedyLizard.com long distance running but with some swimming and mountain biking thrown in. Does OtillO count as an ultra? :-)

I would like to nominate the TrainAsONE blog as the articles are written by Robbie Britton and the all the information published is technically and medically accurate as TAO is the creation of Dr Sean Radford. I read a lot of blogs and never before have I come across one that is designed for every type of runner due to it's all inclusive ethos.

I nominate my own personal blog feelfitforever.wordpress.com
I absolutely love my health and fitness journey that began in 2010 when I weighed 100 pounds more and lost it on my own. I have since successfully battled and overcome several severe medical issues and yet still am able to continue with growing as an athlete and health enthusiast. I have overcome many things including but not limited to massive blood clotting, thoracic outlet syndrome, rib removal, brain surgery and more yet I have pushed myself through it all, such as racing in my 1st ultra little more than 6 months after brain surgery last year. I love sharing my story, helping and encouraging others, and teaching all that I have learned in my incredible journey
