My Very First Blog Award!

Today Angi of every. day. matters. made my day! She gave me my very first blog award, the Blog with a Substance Award.

Like all bloggie awards, this one has rules:

  1. Thank the giver!
  2. Sum up your blogging philosophy, motivation & experience using 5 words..
  3. Pass it on to 10 other blogs that you know have real substance!


  1. Thank you Angi! I enjoy your blog as well! I am not sure how I found Angi’s blog, but I immediately noticed that we wore the same wedding dress and that we both live in Indiana. I have been reading ever since!
  2. Eat good food. Run often.
  3. Ten blogs other blogs that I love:
    1. Adventures in Grownupness – Lori is real. I like that. I also enjoy reading about her races, we have run some of the same ones, her passion for college football, (Too bad she is an Ohio State fan!) and her ability to actually complete her home improvement projects. We struggle with that at Duke’s House.
    2. Branny Boils Over – Branny has awesome recipes and witty banter to go along with them. Even Chris knows Branny by name because he knows that “Branny dinners” will always be a big hit!
    3. Cara’s Cravings – I enjoy Cara’s recipes. They are always decadent looking, yet healthy. Two thumbs up here!
    4. Christina Runs – This girl is busy, I am always in awe of the fact that she gets her runs (and lately knee rehab) in no matter what. A great role model for all of us.
    5. eat, drink, run – Shelby always has me laughing out loud (and once snorting Gatorade out of my nose) at her crazy stories. She is another blogger that I especially enjoy because she is so genuine in her writing.
    6. FlyRunner – Christine is FAST! Holy crap. I can’t get enough of reading about her training and especially her awesome performances at races!
    7. In Steph’s Shoes – I first read Steph’s blog last fall as she was preparing for her first marathon. I have been hooked ever since and I’m pulling for her to BQ in Chicago next month!
    8. Life is Beachy Keene – I can relate to a lot of Jena’s posts because she is going through a lot of the same running frustrations and successes as I have been. It makes me feel normal. 🙂
    9. Loves To Eat – This girl can cook. What I am most impressed by though is her ability to make beautiful desserts and keep a perfect figure! How does she do that?
    10. PreventionRD  – I like Nicole’s blog because it is full of great recipes and she lists the nutrition information. I also enjoy her dog pictures. Maybe Duke needs some more face time.
