Get ready, this week’s list is full of both silly (see #1) and serious (scroll down to the bottom!) blog posts and tweets. Have at it people:
- If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to run while a child is growing inside you, give Lauren Fleshman’s recent post a read. Thankfully, she debunks my fear that my belly will, in her terms, “jiggle around like an enormous unbound third boob” while running. (Whew.) Go mother runners!
The belly doesn’t jiggle like an unbound 3rd boob, and other pregnancy observations: asklaurenfleshman.com/journal/2013/0…

- New to my reader is Gina DiCello, whose passionate posts about qualifying for Boston and then running Boston made me tear up and get chills. Follow her at @GinaDiCello and walktothemailbox.com. (Thanks to @enthusiasticrun for posting!)
- “10 Tips for Supporting A Runner During a Marathon” via @
runwiki (shared by @nycrunningmama!). This one’s for my Dad, who’s coming to watch me race Boston (!!!AHH!!!) and who I know will read this post. Take notes Daddy!
And in this week’s selection of favorited tweets:

If you’re wondering why I posted the tweet above with Matt Long, read this and watch this, and prepare to be amazed, inspired, and moved by this man’s story.

So exciting that you’re going to Boston! I am going as well (my first) and my Dad will be there too! I’m not sure if he reads my blog, but I should forward the article to him just in case. Thank you so much for the shout out! Good luck in Boston! Maybe I’ll see you there!
Right back at you Lisa about Boston! My Dad’s never seen me do a marathon, so your post is perfect. Don’t think he has a clue what it takes. It’s like watching cross country on steroids! haha And yes! We seriously need to do a big twitter friends meet-up at some point! I want to meet you, too! PS 23 days!
Anything chocolate related has my attention! 🙂 I’m glad someone else found it funny too. Hope your training is going well and you’re starting to get super excited about toeing the start line. I’m actually considering doing Marine Corps too so we may be running the same marathons this year. Good luck!
I thought it was hysterical! Especially because I’ve been inhaling those mini Cadbury eggs like it’s my job. Thank God we run! =)
Haha, I like your style. It’s “fuel” right? I mean….a lot of my long runs are fueled by donuts. So there’s that too!
yayyy glad we found each other on twitter! I am SURE you already know about it because I recognize you from the Runner’s World festival last fall 🙂 but Beachy was telling us about a very special shake-out run before the marathon (don’t know details of when yet) and I wanted to invite some of my favorite fabulous runner blogger friends to join in and since you are clearly awesome and since you already probably know about it, I hope to see you there!
Awesome! Glad we found each other, too! =) I actually haven’t heard about the shakeout (Ha!), but I’m sure I’ll be there! I’m so excited!
