Ultrarunner Blog Stalking

by Carilyn on May 24, 2012

You know I am an excellent stalker.  I’m also an information junkie.  I love, love, love to research ideas, information and people.  I’d hate to think all those years of law school/practicing law went to waste, so now I use my skills to look stuff/people up and write about it/them on my blog, or for Trail and Ultrarunning, when I am not training, coaching, or speaking.

If you are a regular to this blog, I periodically tell you who I am stalking at the moment.  Usually, the person is a runner, mom, or entrepreneur.  Sometimes they’re just someone really cool, living an interesting life.  I went through a phase where I was stalking Phyllis Diller.  Go figure.

Today, I thought I’d share which ultraruuner blogs I stalk… I mean, um, follow.  I love reading about what other ultrarunners are doing, training for, learning, eating, and thinking. Ultrarunners are an eclectic group – and their blogs reflect it.  Take a look at any of these blogs, and you will get some great information about running, and some refreshing perspectives on people who like to push the envelope.  Hope you enjoy their blogs as much as I do!












Any cool blogs I should be stalking that I don’t know about?


Happy Running!

Thanks for the mention! Guess I’ll have to up my game, now. 😉 🙂

I always find the coolest people through other bloggers. Thanks!

Your blog is so cool! One of the best things about Twitter is finding new blogs and running friends 🙂

I agree, Kate! I’m a blog junkie!

Sarah is on twitter? So sophisticated!
Your stocking is changing as blogs are with time. That is cool.

Love to stalk! My husband mocks me, but I love reading about other people’s lives, runs, kids, etc. People are fascinating!

Wow, I feel honored to be your Stalkee! Thanks for listing me. And now I’ve found your blog as well. I can’t wait to catch up!

PS – It’s KIRstin (as opposed to Kristin).

Hi Kirsten! Sorry about that! I’ve changed the spelling. You’d think I’d be more careful with that since my name is Carilyn – as opposed to Carolyn or Caroline, both of which I get a lot 🙂

Love it! I’ve been looking for some good blogs to add to my reader, and since I want to start running Ultras, this list is perfect. 🙂

Glad you stopped by, Natalie!
