Share the Love (Liebster Award Part 1)


Yesterday evening I came home to a very nice surprise: the awesome Trails and Ultras has nominated me for a Liebster Award! First of all, I’d like to say a massive thank you to Trails and Ultras for this acknowledgement and kindness!

For those of you reading this, I can only recommend Trails and Ultras’ blog – it’s full of gems about running, which are illustrated with beautiful photographs and very entertaining doddles!

As far as I understand it, the Liebster Award is all about sharing our passion for writing, spreading the word and giving us an excuse to blog a little more. The rules for accepting a nomination are as follows:

  1. You must link back to the person who nominated you.
  2. You must nominate a further 11 bloggers, each with under 200 subscribers, go to their blogs and notify them of your nominations.
  3. You must answer the 11 questions given to you by your nominator and come up with a further 11 questions for your nominees to answer.

I want to nominate blogs which I think are genuinely fantastic and special to me. However, because I have only been a part of this wonderful blogging community for a short amount of time and I am sure that there are many awesome blogs around which I have yet to encounter. Therefore, it might take me a little while to reach the required eleven nominations. In that spirit, here are my nominations thus far:

SmallIslandRunner: A lovely blog documenting one runner’s mission to run every road on the island of Jersey within one year. The wonderful Ella has a contagiously positive attitude towards running and it’s been a genuine joy to follow her journey around Jersey.

Write…Run…Repeat: This is, hands down, one of the most entertaining blogs I have come across. The author is very insightful, at times sarcastic and generally self-depreciating. However, the man is an absolute pro on both the writing and running fronts – highly recommended.

Arunnertravels: A beautiful and beautifully written blog about the author’s main passions in life: travel, running and writing. This blog manages to be dreamy, passionate and entertaining at the same time. Whenever I read it, I feel as though I’m getting a little lost in another world.

Run, eat, sleep, run.: This blog is truly inspirational. The author is one of the toughest runners I have ever come across. Not only does he partake and kick ass in some of the world’s most extreme ultra events, he does so while coping with and raising awareness of Type 1 Diabetes. Absolutely amazing!

    Hey, thanks so much for the kind words about my blog! It’s 5 a.m. here in my part of the world, and I’m just doing my final race prep (coffee, bagel, banana, dry heaves) before I head off to my marathon. Your words have definitely kick-started my mood… I bet it shaves two minutes off my chip time… Merci beaucoup!

    Howdy. Thanks a bunch for your nomination and your compliments. It was an extra something nice on my birthday. (27 before you ask, feeling old, real old!) I’ll crack on with nominations and answers soon! You’ll definitely be on my list of nominations. Can I nominate someone who’s nominated me? Getting a bit Kafka-esque there. Thanks again. You rock!

    • Oh you’re most welcome! Happy birthday, clearly, it was meant to be! 😉 I always tell myself that while growing older is forced upon my, growing up is optional. Have a fantastic day!

  3. Thanks very much for the nomination! I’ll have a think and get my nominations up soon 🙂 (Maybe once I’m off nights so that I can do my nominees justice in their descriptions!)
