Welcome to Running Roundup, in which we highlight awesome running stories we’ve found around the web. If you’ve spied a story or have one of your own to share, give us a shout!
Before we get started I have to ask: is it round up, roundup or round-up? Professor Google is not providing me a definitive answer!
- Race 2: Run Melbourne – Momo @ Streak of Genius
Momo is currently in training for Australia’s most famous run, the City 2 Surf, guided by none other than Coach Julia “Obey Me” Jones! In this post Momo recaps her first 10K race in her inimitable hilarious fashion. Go Momo Go!
- Peeping Gnomes running adventures – Sara
Peeping Gnomes charts the running exploits of Italian photographer Sara, and her husband Ale. An Up & Running 5K graduate, Sara says on her About page, “Julia and Shauna did some kind of Jedi tricks on me and 8 weeks later I have run my first 5k and I’m working towards my first 10k”. Then she lured Ale into the running cult! A must-read blog for the witty training reports and ultra stylish LOLcatish photos.
- Light Up The Night Run Recap (I’m A Runner!) – Dubya Wife
Mrs Dubya ran her first 5K at the Fitbloggin conference in May but this week she ran her first registered race. There is something about pinning a number on your chest that screams Real Runner! She rocked the race in a pink tutu and a mile-wide smile. Fabulous work, Dubya Wife!
- Learning To Ride A Bike – Kris @ The Heart & Humour Of Being Human
Not a post about running, obviously, but I had to share because Kris is my hero right now! As a fellow very very new cyclist I’m so inspired by her tenacity and braveness. Onya Kris!
