WordPress Family Award & a Runner I Admire

20130814-124018.jpgBetween my race medals and blog stuff, I’m gonna get a swelled head. If you’ve met me in person, you’d know my head is somewhat undersized (I have to wear kid hats), so there’s room for a little ego. But not too much because I’m generally small all over and I’d end up tipping over or looking like a bobble head.

Running to Her Dreams nominated me for a WordPress Family Award. I’m not sure, but my guess is that I need to nominate other WordPress bloggers.

If you haven’t checked out Running to Her Dreams, get on it tout de suite! If for no other reason than her gorgeous photography, particularly of found hearts in nature. But she’s also fostering a zen attitude about owning her life that I admire.

I still need to list fellow nominees. I kind of tapped out my usual suspects (have I mentioned I’m anti-social. Why doesn’t anyone believe me when I say that?) with the Versatile Blogger, but this is an opportunity for me to explore more WordPress blogs.

She is a double amputee who lost her lower legs to a flesh-eating bacteria infection. But that’s not what makes her inspirational: she’s a runner, a model, a motivational speaker and funny as hell.

She is also partly responsible for the invention of these “cheetah” legs that amputees can use to run like the wind.
You can see one of her TED Talks here. Her official website is here.

I love how she is a problem solver and has such a positive attitude.
