“I get by with a little help from my friends.” – The Beatles
When the Beatles celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of their visit to America and Ringo sang A Little Help From My Friends, I thought about my many friends in the blogosphere. So I decided to give a Shout Out to my fellow-bloggers who inspire me–my cyber friends who labor at the keyboard as I do.
Rite2Run might be grounded in running, but the bloggers I follow span the spectrum–from running to vegetarian cooking to writing to photography to poetry to art. I was thinking of organizing them by category, but then I thought, Nah! Here is the short list of bloggers I follow who make me want to run, hike, dig, cycle, eat and of course write:
Sophie’s Foodie Files – A splendid Belgium cook with simply the healthiest, wholesomest, most sumptuous recipes ever, many of them vegetarian and gluten-free.
Move, Eat, Create – Shannon is a health nut, vegetarian and runner with an honest and refreshing voice that always makes me looking forward to her next post.

I believe that a personal play list says a lot about a person’s personality and wonder if the same is true about the blogs a person follows.
