5 Check Out Eric Gervase's Running Blog, "Stubborn Running"


Every now & then I'll highlight a running, fitness, or nutrition-related blog that I think deserves recognition & increased exposure. Today that lucky blog is Stubborn Running by blogger, Eric Gervase.

So, why, might you ask, do I like his blog?

Well, I guess it just comes down to his personality & writing style. I like the fact that he's a fighter & is determined to be a runner despite the fact that he doesn't think he's suited for it. Sometimes I feel that way myself! ;-)

His persistence is admirable, his personality is charismatic, & his blog is very readable & enjoyable.

I also like the fact that whatever he's got to say, he just comes out with it. I can relate to being so direct, although I'm not quite so succinct when it comes to posting. ;-) I probably could take a few lessons from the brevity of his posts.

Anyhow, please take a moment to check out his inspired & interesting blog!

Well... Doesn't that just beat all. Yes, you absolutely made my day. Charismatic huh? I'll agree with the direct, but charismatic? Hmmm... Me thinks I need to put some more effort into my blog to withstand the praise. Thank you sooo much for the shout out.

I'm not terribly down about the injury though. I just went through an injury after the marathon (I think it is related). I learned that I can last by cross training (biking mostly). But, I'd much rather be running.

Thanks again. I think you might have a similar post in the near future from me. I'll try and give it enough time so that you're not expecting it. That way, maybe it'll sneak up on you.

Good post and a well deserved shout out! I've been known to frequent Stubborn Running myself and have in fact recently added the blog to my blogroll...

Nice one Eric!

Hi Eric,

You're welcome for the shout-out. Regarding the praise I heaped on your blog, I will say this: Well, judging from the number of people who enjoy reading & commenting on your blog, I'm apparently not the only one who thinks your blog is great. So don't knock it! I think you've got a charismatic personality, as it always shines through when you comment here. And of course, the same is true of your blog. So there! ;-)

Sounds like you've made peace with your injury. Glad to hear you've got alternate plans to work around your injuries. Seems the lot of us will be cross-training due to bunged up body parts! ;-)


P.S. I just stopped by your blog again & saw the very cool shout-out you gave me on your blog. Thanks so much for the kind gesture! That was very nice of you to do!
