So we moved. For at least the next several months, I’ll be splitting my time between Silver Spring and a cool duplex a block away from the beach in Virginia Beach, Va. (stay tuned for photos of my new daily run along the Chesapeake Bay).
As part of the move, I threw out a phenomenal amount of stuff I don’t need anymore: carefully-marked maps of Silver Spring running routes I now know by heart; a knee immobilizer from last year’s ACL tear; a hair-straightening iron from college; a dust-covered shot-glass collection from an unnamed period of time that certainly would not be high school. As I chucked each item in the “donate” and “recycle” boxes, I was grateful for the space each dismissal created—in our office, and in my life.
Of course, that makes room for the new: New challenges and adventures and goals that have no use for straighteners of any kind (knee or hair). In the spirit of that newness, I wanted to pass along the links to several new (or just new to me) running-health-wellness blogs I’ve stumbled upon recently:
- A new look for Nourishing The Soul, worth checking out for the pretty, quote-filled, warm-fuzzy-inducing homepage alone. It’s a blog about eating disorders and body image, but has great info and insights for anyone trying to live an active, healthy life
- Adam Goucher’s Run The Edge blog
- Nobody Cares About Your Run, a new running blog from a friend of a friend
- The lovely and talented District Chocaholic has started an Obligatory Tri Blog
Have you stumbled upon anything new and exciting recently? Or dismissed any relic of a past self from your current life?

I love “Nobody Cares About Your Run” – sarcasm goes right to my heart. And thanks for the shout out.
