Sharing Sunday

13618e16e89b98495dd93f2e42fd2b70e51e17f7_share-the-love-graphic-300x300I’m seeing around the blogging community that today is Sharing Sunday.  I’m not absolutely certain what that means, but I think I’d like to share the love for some other bloggers and websites that are I really enjoy following.

Aidyl93, Life From My Point of View.  A wonderful person and writer, she blogs about everything from her everyday life, to her band, to her creative writing.  She writes some fabulous stories, and I was able to watch her band stream live on Twitch last night which was a ton of fun.  Lydia and I were in Blogging 101 together which is a fabulous place to be to meet new and not-so-new bloggers.

Hit Below The Belt… Hard.  I met Tasha in Blogging 101 also (again, a great place to meet other bloggers).  She blogs about self defense and teaches people how NOT to be a victim. She really makes you think about certain situations and preparedness.  Every Friday she hosts “Funny Friday.”  If I’m able to check my email first thing on Friday, I sit down with my cup of tea and read her blog.  It’s always good to start the day with a smile.

Art At Hand.  I’ve been a fan of Serena’s since the very beginning of my blogging life.  She’s one of my favorite photographers.  She tries different techniques on her photos and she explains why.  Sometimes I try to see things through her eyes and lens.

Travel, Running, and a Little Bit of Style.  I’ve been following Rebecca since the beginning as well. She’s traveled all over the place, has had some great adventures, and she runs!  She’s even had destination race-cations!  And I’m all about the race-cation thing!

Wanderwolf Running.  Meet Dorothea.  She is one of the most humble person’s I’ve had the pleasure of following.  She is also the very quiet yet very loyal supporter of the running blogs. She is an incredible athlete and I love reading about her race training even though she’s way out of my league.  Someone I learn from.

50 in 50 Marathon Quest. The Motivator in my story and my loving husband.  I’m very proud of him.  He wants to run a marathon in all 50 states, averaging about 4 per year until complete. And I get to join him, running all the half’s.  I’m going to be ready for a nap by the time I hit 60.

This is not the top of the hill; this is about half way.

And sharing other news from over the weekend, I ended up having to run MoFo Hill (its new name) because it did not rain, of all the luck.  I made it 1-1/2 times before I died halfway up.  A fabulous start and baseline.  It will be fun to gauge my improvement over the coming weeks… ummm, that is assuming I improve, hehe.

Also, James and I signed up for Facebook. Come say hi to us if you get a chance!! We would love to hear from you!! The links are Never a Dull Bling and 50 in 50 Marathon Quest.

wpid-20151107_205342.jpgToday is our normally-scheduled long run day (me 11, Jamesy 15), the most important run of the week.  Doesn’t matter if it’s raining, snowing, or hot as hell, gotta get out there and get it done. So I made this One Pot Pasta for our pre-run dinner and post-run snack. Throw it all in a pot, let it boil, and the water magically disappears.  It’s kinda yummy. Notice the tomatoes… lots and lots of potassium!

And I had this for dessert!  Yay!!

Time for me to get out now and get that mileage done!  Happy running!

    Dear Paula,
    This post is such a great idea and I’ll catch on/pass the love on! But I’m also overwhelmed with happy flutters at what you wrote about me. You are too kind (and I’m not that humble 😉 my family jokes that I have a big ego). Thank you! I enjoyed reading about the other people you follow, and look out for a similar post from me, soon!
    Thank you 🙂 you made my day!!

      You are very welcome, Dorothea. I admire you, what can I say, ego or no ego, :D. But, I didn’t mean to say that you had to go out and now tag someone else, I’m going to change that last paragraph so everyone doesn’t think that. I was just trying to encourage sharing the love amongst bloggers, hehe. 😀 And I know you’re busy… so don’t feel pressure to do it. 😀

        And you! I’m so behind though. I haven’t been able to be on wordpress at all since Monday. I have two more weeks of craziness, and then we have the semester break. I may save a share-the-love post then.
        Hope you’re having a good weekend!

        Oh, I know you’re a busy girl right now! Bet you’re looking forward to that break! 😀 Weekend is good, albeit wet and windy, ick. And you too… hope you’re doing well and not training too too hard… your race is next week, yes?

        yup! Next week and I feel like a kid whose birthday is coming up, or knows s/he’s on her/his way to Disney. I have to make sure I focus on my “real life job,” and not get distracted. 🙂
        It’s rainy here as well, but probably not as cold. Take care! and watch your ankles.

        I think you can be happy, either way. Though I of course hope you get the “beyond thrilled” result! I’m sure your hard work is paying off, and it will be good to be able to see it. 🙂

    Awwww!!! Thank you for the mention, you are too kind *hugs*…..On one hand, it feels good to know that I’m not the only one without a facebook…however, these days it’s looking more and more like I am becoming the only one without one!!! I’ve got to get it together! Also, does the water magically disappear because of the tomatoes? lol….I’ve never had that happen before 😀

      I know, I fought and fought the Facebook thing, but then I figured that was a good way to get our blogs out there, so I caved. I won’t do the “personal” facebook thing, it just gets too ridiculous, but there are some fun pages you can follow without having all the drama, like Runner’s World and Brooks, etc. As for the pasta, I have no idea how this works. So you put in onions, garlic, tomatoes, 12 oz of linguine, a pinch red pepper flakes, fresh basil, and salt and pepper, add 4-1/2 cups water, boil for 9 to 10 minutes, turning with tongs every now and again, and voila! When it’s done, you don’t even have to drain it! It must be the amount of water that’s used. By the way, you’re welcome! I enjoy your blog!! 😀

        You do, but you don’t have to advertise to anyone that you have it. It can remain completely private. Then there’s a place where you can create a community page, or a blogger’s page, there are all different kinds actually. This page is 100% public, but it’s a way to get your stuff out there, and I will just yours would take off! Google never a dulll bling on facebook, and you can see what my page looks like, and that’s pretty much it. It’s a thought! Then you can hook up with sponsors and such, like Budweiser (lol), or your pepper spray people, and you can tag them in your posts. Something to think about! 😀
