Motivated after her first race in August of 2012, Evelin started her blog, EvelinRuns. As a runner, and after following other blogs about running, “I saw it as a chance to share my story and connect to other passionate runners out there” explains Evelin. She continues “it has been a wonderful way to share motivation and inspiration with others, but also to be inspired by other runners!”

Fellow runners will be empowered after reading about her journey of logging miles, as well as reading gear and race reviews. Posting 1-3 times each week, simply put, Evelin writes about her love of running. Check out one of her favorite posts and you’ll reap the benefits of her enthusiasm.

Our Friday series continues with this Blog highlight. Another option for a blog to follow that is sure to motivate your fitness journey…

As a lifelong writer it only seemed natural when the idea of Caffeine? Yes, Please! first entered the mind of Jeneen Olive back in 2009. Originally, she thought she would “journal the early days of motherhood” as Jeneen explains. However, she recalls “being a new mom didn’t provide much time to sit down and put my thoughts to digital paper.” Although her original intention behind the focus of her blog has shifted, her love of writing remains. When asked about the motivation behind how her blog subject came into existence, she responds “in 2012 I began running and I found that the miles allowed by creative side to reawaken.”

In her blog, Caffeine? Yes, Please! Jeneen shares personal experiences of running and fitness through logging her thoughts from competing in a 5K to her first marathon. She still considers herself a beginning runner and so she writes to help motivate those first time runners. Additionally, seasoned athletes will relate to her stories of trials and tribulations of logging miles and workouts.

So, if you’re in search of inspiration and a little humor to add to your fitness world, follow her as she posts two to three times each week. Check out one of her favorite posts thus far, entitled “A Trip Around the Sun”.
