7 links

the peeps at Tripbase have been running a blogging experiment with the goal of uniting bloggers from all around cyberspace to share and develop a collection of lost, but not forgotten blog posts that deserve to be brought back into the limelight.

i was nominated by a very hip triathlete named http://junkmiles.org/, and I thank her for nominating me to do this. lord knows i need a nudge every now and then to post something.
here are the rules:
  1. Blogger is nominated to take part
  2. Blogger publishes his/her 7 links on his/her blog – 1 link for each category
  3. Blogger nominates up to 5 more bloggers to take part.
  4. These bloggers publish their 7 links and nominate another 5 more bloggers
  5. And so it goes on!
without further ado, here are mine:
my most beautiful post: my little secret, written on friday 12/3/2010
running away1  
this post captured how i feel when i’m running. free as a bird, solving the worlds problems, ridding myself of any stress. on this particular post, i tried to point out how important it is to stop and smell the roses sometimes.

my most popular post: la vie est belle = life is good, was written on friday 9/17/2010
this post was about my birthday weekend celebrating at rainbow river. the reason i think it is the most popular post is because it has the most internet search hits of any other post i’ve written. i guess a lot of people are interested in this really cool get-a-way.

my most controversial post: short and sweet, written on saturday 4/3/2010
not sure that this post or any that i have ever done were all that controversial but i think it could be if my audience base was made up of pure motorists and motorcyclist types who aren’t cyclists. can we all just get a long?

my most helpful post: i believe in miracles, written on wednesday 2/24/2010
swim winner
i have referred so many new triathletes to this post, especially the one’s who struggle with the swim, to help encourage them and to let them know that they too can conquer the swim. i had only been swimming for about 2 months at the time i wrote this post and i was at a very frustrating point with the swimming but finally had that little break-thru where things started to click and the swimming started to come together. the rest is history and i no longer feel defeated in the water.

a post whose success surprised me: born to win, written on tuesday 7/20/2010
born to win
this was a poem i wrote on a whim one morning while at work. not sure what was going on in my head but i just started thinking about different decisions i’ve made in my life and where they have led me. some were good, some were bad but i have no regrets and love where i’m at in my life and the course i set myself on. when i hit publish on the post that morning, i was hoping it wouldn’t come across as corny and based on the comments, it came across well received.

a post i felt didn't get the attention it deserved: exercise IS the best medicine, written on tuesday 1/26/2010
exercise rx
i was a greenhorn blogger when i wrote this post with maybe 5-10 followers so that’s why this post did not get the attention it deserved. most of you know my background is in exercise physiology and that in my previous life, i owned my own personal training facility, yada, yada, yada. i had a few things going on the week i wrote this that made me realize that i not only use exercise to train for certain events but also as a medication. i’m much nicer when i’ve worked out in the morning, LOL!

the post i'm most proud of: great floridian 140.6 race report, written on tuesday 10/26/2010
Team KC[4]
i was most proud of this post because it was my most proudest moment …finishing 140.6 miles and still smiling. it was a long 10 month journey but worth every single 4am wake up call. i knew that night when i crossed the finish line that i would do another one as soon as possible.

i hope you enjoyed this post and now i have to nominate 5 other bloggers:
1. Karen at working it out ...
3. Summer at the blue line runner

much love and peace out!
