RunPorn

I saw a blog earlier today that had a really neat concept. It was similar to food porn... where you have photos of food and dishes that make you salivate and crave the food. The blog I saw was the same thing, but with running. Yes, running!

This person had posted great running photos and ads on her blog. You know, the ones that make us crazies want to go out for a run. Or the ads we identify with. The ones that bring a smile to our faces or give us the urge to tie up the laces.

I came across these photos from Reuters in a gallery from the cold weather in Europe. The first is from Berlin and features a runner along the River Spree, while the second is of Brighton Beach, England. Too bad they're not high resolution, as they'd make great desktop wallpapers.

Oh, I love that second photo! That's kind of how I feel when it's snowy and cold but still so pretty and colorful outside.

I found your blog on the Runners World forum. Thanks for posting- it's really inspiring.

I also just saw the running porn blog. You're right- it's a bummer that most of the files won't work as desktop backgrounds.

Hi Katherine! I might borrow the RunPorn idea every now and again. You can always try the RaveRun wallpapers... though I know I've already used them all at least once.

Kazz, I totally agree. I love the contrast of the white with the colours. It really captures just how alive you can feel on a winter run.
