Friday Five – September 12th – Five Blogs to Love

Happy Friday everybody!  With yesterday being such a serious and somber day, I’m thankful that Courtney, Cynthia, and Mar wanted to keep things lighthearted for the linkup today.  This week’s theme: Blogs to Love!


I absolutely love this theme, as I’m always on the search for fabulous new blogs to follow.  Many of my favorite bloggers are fellow Friday Five bloggers, so I’ve focused on including non Friday Five linkup participants in my list.  One thing that I have in common with all five of these bloggers: we all participated in Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend back in January (although I only met two of these wonderful women in person that weekend).

1.  Black Dog Runs Disney

If you need a daily dose of humor and entertainment, look no further than Kimberley’s blog.  Between her lighthearted outlook on life and her stories about her Wonder Mutt dog, I always go to her Kimberley’s blog when I need a good laugh.

2.  Run Stretch Go

Like so many of us, Cyanne strives to find a balance in her busy life.  The incredibly delicious, but healthy, food photos that she posts on Instagram are part of what inspired me to focus more on clean eating as a way to better fuel my body.

3.  Maker Mother Marathon Runner

If you’re familiar with runDisney, then you’ve likely heard Kimberley’s story.  This woman is one of the most inspirational people that I’ve ever met.  Her battle with breast cancer, and her ability to continue running while facing her battle, make her one of the most motivating people that I’ve ever had the opportunity to meet.

4.  Sparkly Runner

Like Kimberley, Sarah is also a huge fan of runDisney.  Sarah’s weight loss journey is quite inspiring, and reading Sarah’s story inspires me to push myself more and more everyday.

5.  Road Runner Girl

Speaking of inspiring weight loss stories, my list of blogs to love wouldn’t be complete without including Mindy.  Like me, Mindy is also a teacher, but doesn’t allow her busy schedule to be an excuse for not running and working out.  Earlier this year, Mindy started on a weight loss journey, and her transformation has been incredible to watch!
