Over the last few months I have found I have been engaging more and more with some of my fellow bloggers who I read daily posts from. Since some of them have said “Follow Me” on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook I have and can engage with them there as well. That isn’t me being creepy because they have asked me to follow them. I have started to really enjoy this interaction and feel that I am forming friendships all over the world and some even in my home town. I have even found that when I speak with Warren about some of the blogs that I have been reading I will say the name of the blog as if it is the person’s name in my story. It is kind of funny but he is starting to know who I am talking about which I like. A week or so ago he said to me “Your blog is like the modern-day pen pal.” So, true and I love it.
So, that brings me to what inspired me for this post.
Today I read a post by TartanJogger who lives in Tarbert, Argyll. In June and July 2014 there is the GB Relay that has been nicknamed “The People’s Relay”. In the relay runners carry a baton with GPS in it as they go along the coast of Britain. They are hoping to record over 7000 kilometers in 594 stages to break a Guinness World Record and beat these current records. TartanJogger and @thewelshwookie will be running in stage 138.
I mentioned in a comment to TartanJogger’s that I thought it would be neat to have a relay with bloggers who run and she liked the idea as well. We could gather all of the running bloggers together and keep track of how many kilometers we all ran each week. I am thinking March and April would be the two best months to do this because there is usually a race in May that people are training for. That way the relay could just be part of our training for whatever run is coming up.
I think it would be neat to see if we could set a “record” of the most kilometers ran through blogs around the world. Not sure if this has even been attempted before but there is a first time for everything.
What do you think? Would you be interested in taking part of the Around the Word Running Blog Relay? Let me know by commenting on my post and I will get things started for March 2014. #ATWRBR2014
