5 Blogs to Love


It’s the Friday Five with: Cynthia, Mar, and Courtney today! Today’s topic is 5 Blogs to Love.

Cake Wrecks– This was one of the first blogs that I ever started reading. It’s pastry related but good for a laugh. On Sundays the posts feature Sunday Sweets which are simply amazing cakes that I wish I was capable of making. I didn’t know that the cakes on Sunday were not wrecks when I first started reading, so I was really confused. I was sitting there thinking how great the cakes were and trying to figure out what was wrong with them.

The Cake Blog– This blog is also pastry related. It’s a good reference tool. I’ve gotten quite a few good recipes from here. They feature cakes and also have tutorials.

You Signed Up For WHAT?!– This was the first running related blog that I started reading. Cynthia is an awesome person! She runs and is a triathlete, all while working and raising 3 children. She is also the leader of my MRTT group. I seriously have no idea how she does it all! This is a great blog about fitness, training, healthy eating and much more.

Run Salt Run– Salt has also been a huge inspiration for me. She is a working mom who also runs and is amazing at yoga. She keeps it real by talking about her struggles as well as her success. I really like her sense of humor. I’d love to meet her in person one day! I’m also a little jealous of her shoe collection. 🙂

This Mama Runs For Cupcakes– Sue is a working mom who runs and bakes. I can definitely relate to her in that way. She just ran a marathon in Paris which sounds amazing! It’s always fun to hear about new workouts or clothing that she tries. Sue also likes Orange Theory! I hope to be able meet her one day as well!

Bonus: Fit Balling Running Mom – I met Tamieka through MRTT and she is such a wonderful person! She was my running solemate during a lot of my Baltimore training. We spent countless hours running and talking. She not only inspires me to be a better mother and person, but to push myself harder physically as well.

What’s your favorite blog?

    1. Cakes are my favorite aspect of being a pastry chef. They are a fun, creative outlet. I’m trying to figure out what I want to make for my daughter’s 2nd birthday cake. It’ll be here before I know it!
