Don't even ask me how this happened! But I will accept it nonetheless.
So I don't know if you guys do this with your blogs (be it wordpress, blogger, etc), but I will go one every couple of days and check my stats to see how much traffic I get, where it is coming from, and if anyone else is linking to my blog. I think it was this past Friday I was looking first thing in the morning, and I saw this website/blog that my blog was linked through, Sports Psyche. The site/blog is dedicated to the study and communication of sports psychology to the masses, they also have other resources on their site if you are interested in this field of study.
They have a post from February 8th, entitled "Top 50 Inspiring Blogs by Athletes." I clicked on the link and it has 50 blogs from both pros and amateur athletes that they feel can inspire others. I go through the first three sports, basketball, football and baseball. There were some pretty big names in there. My next thought is, what does this have to do with me? I keep scrolling down, where I hit the Running/Triathlete section, and who do you suppose is listed at Number 29? That would be yours truly! Also, one of my blogging buddies, Rachel, was featured as well coming in at Number 28. Here is her blog if you are interested in checking it out. I know this is probably not some high ranking sports psychologist that is world renowned or anything, and this list is far from Triathlete Magazine or Sports Illustrated Top ## Athlete blogs of all time, but I thought it was still pretty cool!
Take a gander at the post here.
Hope all of you had a great weekend!
