the local spotlight.

in local spotlight


since i posted earlier today, i won’t bore you with another long, rambling post. instead, i want to focus on a couple lovely utah ladies! as you might know, i like to feature utah bloggers every so often. i love reading all blogs, but there is something about local blogs that really floats my boat. of course, you don’t have to be a local to enjoy these blogs. check them out!

the hungry runner girl.


name & location: Janae Jacobs, Provo, UT

tell us about your blog:  A blog dedicated to RUNNING, eating, fitness, daily randomness and more re-fueling.

how long have you been blogging?  I have been blogging for 13 months.

what are two NOT TO BE MISSED posts of yours?

  1. NYC marathon recap (basically because it is still all I can think about):
  2. Because I love race recaps….our Halloween Half marathon dressed as Piñatas:

finally, what are five things you could NOT live without?

My running shoes, chapstick, whatever the candy of the week is, my phone and my bike. 


from 280 to 26.2.


name & location: My name is Shah’ada – I’m an Egyptian American with a rockin’ cool name. I currently live in Logan.

tell us about your blog:  My blog chronicles my physical, emotional and mental journey from an unhappy, obese 20 something to a 26 year old marathoner who fully embraces life. I blog less about actually losing weight and more about my journey of maintaining what I’ve lost, what keeps me happy, and how I stay sane :)

how long have you been blogging?  I’ve been blogging for 7 months now.

what are two NOT TO BE MISSED posts of yours?

Two of my favorite blog posts? That’s hard!!

  1. being vegan:
  2. top of utah marathon race recap:

finally, what are five things you could NOT live without?

coffee (!!!!!), running shoes, my iphone/macbook pro (oh yes, this counts as one), skinny jeans, and wine.


special thanks to janae and shah’ada for participating in the local spotlight! check them out, even if you don’t live here in utah!

WHat a rockstar she is! I love her 5 things she can’t live without, some of the ones she mentioned are mine too!

i am guessing you mean shah’ada’s things.. although maybe you meant janae’s, but my bet is shah’ada’s!

Missy November 15, 2011 at 9:06 am

I love the local bloggers – always neat to check out a new blog.

I knew you’d have a little bit of a different attitude this week on football, and of course any reason to have a party :)
And WIN they did! They rather stomped them. I hope they’re getting sized for their Superbowl rings, ha ha!

Thanks for the spotlights! :) Love your blog…I haven’t commented recently. I kind of like hiding in the bushes….creepy? naaaaaahhhhh. Anyway, I had a questions. I have not done a search so forgive me if you have already covered this but what does your blogging schedule look like? I have tried blogging but something gets in the way and I end up stopping. :( I suck I guess. Have any tips?

Janetha November 15, 2011 at 11:08 am

Hey lady! Always love to hear from you. I typically blog every evening Monday through Thursday, then in the early afternoon on Friday, then *sometimes* will post on the weekend, depending on what I am up to. Sometimes I post 1-2 times over the weekend, sometimes not at all! I rarely (Almost never!) post more than once a day. Also, if I am busy and don’t have time to post or don’t have anything to say, I don’t worry about missing a day. I used to, but honestly.. life comes before blogging and it’s not worth stressing over!

kathleen @ the daily crumb November 15, 2011 at 12:24 pm

i’m loving this posts… and of course hungry runner girl :)

still am trying to get over your love of the packers!

Janetha November 15, 2011 at 12:30 pm

you mean my husband’s love? haha. i love the packers through marriage! i don’t even like football!

Annette@EnjoyYourHealthyLife November 15, 2011 at 1:00 pm

NICE. So sad I moved and can’t be featured, but I sure do love the Utahns!! :)

Errign November 15, 2011 at 3:38 pm

I love that you feature local blogs…and probably am a bit jealous that you’ve got other bloggers around you to feature. I do love New Hampshire, but it’s not known for it’s bloggers, haha.
