Last month I was contacted about having my blog appear in a danish running magazine called LøbeMagasinet. I know the magazine well as I buy it almost every month. It is very well written and professional.
Oviously I jumped at the chance :-)
A couple of my blogger friends have also been mentioned!
The article is, of course, in danish so I have translated a little of it below.
Why did you start a blog?
When I first started my blog it was to keep track of my own training and the up and downs of my journey to Copenhagen Marathon. I never intended to run any more marathons after Copenhagen so, in the beginning, it was just a diary. Then I caught the marathon bug!
What do you personally get out of your blog?
I enjoy helping beginner runners to achieve their own running goals just as I did and hopefully to catch the ‘running bug’ on their way there.
What is the best thing about having a blog?
I meet some great people who share the same interests as me. Also I like looking back to see how my own running has improved since I began.
Do you have a favourite running blog?
My running ‘mentor’ has a great blog called 50 is the New 30. I started reading his blog and made comments about his posts which led to us meeting up when he came over to run Copenhagen Marathon. We are meeting again in Berlin. I have learnt a lot from Paul and his blog.
Also I am inspired by 'Løbeklubben på Facebook' (running club on facebook) and by the blog Conquering 26.2
