I have been a reader of Aron’s blog since before I started my own blog. I was drawn to her blog for a few reasons: she is a kick-ass runner, she writes honestly and openly and her doggies Kylie and Emma are tooooo cute. But then very best thing about Aron is how down to earth she is; Aron’s blog has a very high readership and it would be easy for her to get a big head and become clique-like about who she will or will not read/comment. But that is so far from the truth- Aron takes the time to respond to all her readers, whether it is the form of a post or in a comment. I appreciate that and think it is a large part of why she has such a great following.
I have learned so much from reading Aron’s blog- she is brutally honest when it comes to her training, racing and reflections after a race. I admire this in a blogger because it takes guts to really put how you feel out in the open. Aron does not hold back; she embraces the good days and also the bad. She revels in a great race and accepts the not-so-great. She is positive and encouraging. Like I stated before, Aron is real.
Aron has been chronicling her journey for a little over two and half years when she was training for her first marathon. Since then, she has run 5 full marathons and a host of other distance races. Aron has hopes of, at her next marathon, getting the conveted BQ and whether she does it next month or next year, I know Aron will one day be running Boston.
Many of you already have “met” Aron and a few of you have been lucky enough to meet her in person too! For those of you who aren’t familar with her blog, check her out!
