On the shortlist: Best Blog in The Running Awards

In running, everyone’s a winner!

Exciting news! I made it on the shortlist for the Best Blog in The Running Awards! Months ago, I mentioned that I was nominated for this award and hassled you all to vote for me. Thankfully you did! And now, I am one of twelve finalists for Best Blog.

The Running Awards clearly take inspiration from the marathon. It’s a long process! The initial voting period opened back in September. The shortlist was announced in February and the final winners will be announced mid-April! Admittedly, this is a long time to be drumming up continual votes, but alas, I’m hoping you’ll do it anyway, because my blogging dreams depend on you.

Here’s what you do:

  1. Go to http://therunningawards.com/vote/
  2. Click Community
  3. Click Blog
  4. Find Thoughts and Pavement and click Vote

To vote, you have to create a login which is a bit annoying, but if you voted for me back in the initial rounds, you’ll already have a login. Don’t worry. I’m sure you used the same password you always use.  Oh, and here’s a hot tip, you can vote with more than one email address, so if you have a couple, use them all. The whole process takes less than two minutes. I promise!

The Running Awards were set up to recognise the best in running each year. The difference with these awards is that they are entirely vote-based. There are lots of other running awards out there judged by a panel of experts, but there wasn’t one that was adjudicated by truly independent voting. Enter The Running Awards.

I would be truly grateful if you could take 2 minutes to vote for Thoughts and Pavement. It would mean a lot to me.

Thank you dear readers. Happy Friday!
