Tumblr Tuesday

Haven’t done one for a couple of weeks. And you should follow all these people. Have some DC love right at the top and mixed in well throughout.

  • Emilydoesscience - she does science, does running, loves animals, will be doing tris soon, and in general is just a really great person to know. Love it when we get a chance to meet up for runs.
  • Robindoesrunning - One of the most inspirational people on my dash. She provides so much support to those around her, all while launching something special, ironman training, phd studying, taking care of her family, and working. How she gets it all done is amazing, and she always seems to have a little more to give.
  • Regainingmymoxy - She is so real, so nice, and in case you didn’t know she loves cats. She is running Big Sur this year and is always there to throw some support at her Tumblrs.
  • Runheatherrun - Heather is the first DC Tumblr I ever met. I believe our first conversation started awkwardly something like “You have a blog right? Hrider right?”
  • Burgerstobiceps - One of my newer follows but she is awesome. No nonsense support and some amazingly good food conversations. Though if I ever goto VA beach again for a race I will probably come back up 5 lbs instead of down.
  • TheReluctantRunner - Well obviously she is the BAMF that ran Boston last year. But more importantly if you ever need a quick smile just check out some of her videos. Seriously put a smile on my face every time. EVERY.DAMN.TIME.
  • Tridad - Dude is a stay at home dad that is currently in Ironman training and while he wants us all to think he is some curmudgeon of an old man, it is all a ruse. He loves his training, almost as much as he loves his family.
  • Buildingothersup - Yet another DC Tumblr. Also a newer follow, but based on her workout reports, and her gun show, I am pretty sure she could kick my ass.
  • fat-to-fast - Ms. ISingleHandedlyCausedInstagramToBeWorthOneBillionDollars her self! Oh Anna, what can you say about Anna. She has about 20 million crushes, ladies and gents alike. She trains, schools, and works and documents almost every moment of it. Oh and she has a smiley face tan line.

So, I have some bad news! It looks like I will be going out of town this weekend.

I was wondering if it were possible to reschedule, I would hate to miss the run in my hood. However, if not I am sure you guys will all have a blast and I will catch you in March.

Tumblr Crushes:

There you have it! 

Responses to Marathonfoto rant

thereluctantrunner replied to your post: Dear Marathon Foto,

"I actually have bought photos from marathon photo..the price is what it is. They are in business to make money & must be doing alright for themselves as they continue to stay in business. If it is an important race I’ll buy photos, otherwise, I don’t."

Reluctant, you are 100% right! They are a business, and they are in business to make money. That is why in my rant post about it I suggested a case study. I truly think they would make more money if the price was lower. Just one mans opinion, and you know what they say about opinions, right?

runheatherrun reblogged this from you and added:

"I have never bought a photo for this exact reason - its ridiculously expensive. Please tell me you sent this in an email to them. I think you should."

Heather, maybe I will!
