My next thought is, need for encouragement. I would be dishonest if I said I didn't want to at least virtually feel part of a larger community. Maybe since it is pretty often a solo activity for me. I spent a lot of time looking into running groups big and small, but I don't have time flexibility at this point in my life to go on their set time. I manage a running community on reddit, along with +Adam Conolly that has grown to around 350 people in the Chicago area, which has helped me find an additional outlet to the community. But the blog, I do enjoy seeing how others are doing, similar bumps in the road, best practices, and meeting new people.
So I guess my response to why I need a blog, part validation, an outlet and log of my time in life where I have the chance to even run this much, and find other people that are just as crazy (about running) as me.
What about you?
To you more experience web surfers, what other sports/exercises have a large blogging community such as running?
Now for less serious stuff, I don't spend much time on youtube outside of finding Bulls videos, but my wife does and find some funny things (explicit language warning). While not new to the internet, they are new to me and I hope for you!
The first is how I comically feel someone will approach me on my gym days:
His channel is pretty hilarious, and has gems such as How to get a girl to kiss you.
The next two videos are funny, but I wish the sample size and effort level had more balance:
- Guy asking 100 girls if they would have sex with him right now (Spoiler - 0% success rate)
- Girl asking guys if they would have sex with her right now (Spoiler, video sample 14, success rate 50%)
Cause that's all I got.
