I am a runner.

I was always a runner!  It’s in my blood.  It feeds my mind and allows me to think deep thoughts.  At the same time, it fills me with peace and love!  My name is Michelle and i am a runner.

    I want to see if you would like to help beta test a running site we have created. I noticed you have the Runner’s Lounge badge on your site and thought you might be interested. Should only take a few minutes on initial sign up and then as much time as you want to commit over the next couple weeks. Let me know. Thanks for your time.

    Note that the web site listed with this reply is my blog and not the site.

    Just send me your e-mail and I will send directions. I prefer not to post them in the comments. And feel free to use that video as it is YouTube and public domain.

    Thanks! Brian

    Hey Michelle

    Thanks for following me on Twitter (which is how I found your blog). I am not a runner – in fact I am the person you would nominate as ‘Most unlikely to take up running’. Your blog is highly entertaining and I will be ‘tuning in’ with regularity to catch up with your mishaps/successes/runs and adventures.

    All the best x

    PS Hope your toe is soon healed to perfection :O)

    My name is Jennifer and I work for Precision Sports Entertainment. We are currently working with the 13.1 New York Marathon

    We are looking for runners who would like to blog about the race experience and help promote the event. The race takes place April 3rd and benefits World Vision. Funds raised thru 13.1® New York will go towards clean water projects that are changing people’s lives in Kenya and Malawi. For blogging, we could offer you an entry into the race.

    Let me know if you are interested or know of any other bloggers who may be.

    Have a great day!

    Hi Michelle, I see you’ve moved here – Not sure I can follow you, as I can’t see a button – Is it me? You know how non-techie I am…

    Hope you are well and healing like a good ‘un.

    My best to you, as ever, Michelle ma belle!

    Hi Michelle,

    I’m sure you hear this all the time, but I have really enjoyed reading your blog and I was hoping there would be an opportunity to contribute as a guest writer. If this is indeed possible, please email me so we may discuss things further.

    Best regards,

    Hey there Michelle,
    Great blog! I came across your blog from David H.’s “Running Because I can” blog. Funny, I read your most recent post and funny how it totally relates to how I’m feeling these days… uninspired. It’s great to read other runner’s blogs to see how they’re dealing with the lack of motivation, etc. Anyways, good luck with your training (I’m also running the Marine Corp Marathon this year – first ever marathon!). I’ve also added you to my blogroll even though I don’t blog a whole lot.

    Love this site! Thank you! I just started writing my own as I go for my first marathon in 2015. ( — and I’ve been reading yours for a while now. Very inspirational and fun to read.
