social media has become a huge part of our world today and is a big part of my everyday life. i don’t even have to check the news very often anymore because when something big happens, almost instantly someone posts something on facebook or twitter.
in addition social media has created a huge support network for runners. have a question, need some advice, have cheerleaders at a race in a different state… social media/networking has provided all that for me and i am sure for most of you too!
here are some of my favorite forms…
obviously. what would i do without you guys? not only does it serve as an outlet for me so i can empty this busy brain of mine, but it also serves as a journal that i can look back on. on top of that i have received so much support, advice and have made a ton of friends!
although i am not the best at twitter and i can get a little overwhelmed, it has really connected me to so many more runners. twitter is more like a conversation, so it’s really great when you have a question.
i just love facebook in general as a way to catch up with friends, post pics and see what is going on with everyone. i also really like using the runner’s rambles facebook page when i update the blog or when i am at an event/race. it’s a nice place to tie things together for me.
i don’t think i mentioned on here before but i joined daily mile a while ago. i haven’t been the best at updating it but i really need to get on it. it’s a great tool for runners to track their miles and also to interact with other runners.
those are my favorites, what are your favorites?
if you are on any of them follow me, like me, friend me and i will follow, like and friend you back!
YAY for 3 day weekends!!! seriously, cannot wait. lots of runs planned, hopefully some bike riding too, and a 5k race where i better beat my time from 2 weeks ago!
