Every so often these fun little awards circulate in the blogosphere and give bloggers an opportunity to acknowledge other writers from their blogging community.  It’s a great way for bloggers to introduce their readers to some of the blogs they enjoy, and it’s a great way for readers to learn a little more about the writers behind the blogs they follow.

I was just bestowed such an award called the Sisterhood of the World bloggers award.  Thank you Elizabeth at My Neon Running Shoes and Courtney at Don’t Blink. Just Run for nominating me!  Both of you would be on my list to nominate had you not just received the award.

The Rules
1. Post the logo on your blog
2. Thank the person who nominated you
3. Answer the questions
4. Choose ten or so other ladies who blog as your nominees
5. Post the links to the nominees’ blogs and notify them on their blog

Favorite Color – Spa blue…  I find it very soothing.

Favorite animal – As much as I love cows, monkeys, and cats, I’d have to pick dogs as my favorite animals.  I know the names of all of the dogs that I pass on the running trail, but I don’t know their humans’ names.  If I were to go out today and adopt a dog, this is the guy I’d want to bring home!

Favorite non-alcoholic drink – I wouldn’t be honest if I didn’t say Dr. Pepper Ten was my favorite; however, I know how crappy I feel after drinking sodas (because it keeps me from drinking enough water), so I limit my intake to only a couple every few weeks.

Facebook or Twitter – Facebook…  I’m still on the learning curve with Twitter and have to remind myself to use it!

Favorite pattern – Fleur-de-lis…  I had to look this up to see if it really counted as a pattern and it does; although I’m showing it as an accent piece not a pattern.


Favorite number – 1734856857373845858…  I don’t know why, but I’ve always loved this number.  Just don’t ask me to repeat it!

Favorite Flower – Bleeding hearts…  We have these planted in our back and side yard flower gardens and I love when they bloom in the spring!

What is your passion – Obviously since I am a personal trainer, running coach, and write a fitness blog, I’m passionate about health and fitness.  This may sound cliché, but I’m also passionate about people.  I enjoy working with my clients, helping them become the best that they can be, and encouraging them to make good decisions.  And of course I’m passionate about my family.  My family always comes first!

And now it’s my turn to spread the love! Since this is the third time I’ve had to pick other bloggers to acknowledge, and I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feeling, I want to first give a shout-out to the bloggers that I chose in my previous two posts for the Liebster Award and the Sunshine Award.  Ladies, you know that I enjoy your blogs, but I’ve decided not to do any repeats this time and I hope you understand.

So without further ado, I am nominating the following ladies for writing blogs that I enjoy following!  I hope that you will pop over and check them out!
