Running and Social Media

Thanks for the warm welcome back and the great feedback on weight loss and sleep.  I have decided to keep a sleep log until I get a regular sleep schedule under wraps. 

Now that I am back trying to keep my blog more updated,  I thought I would ask your opinion about social media and running.

I find it very motivating to read all of your blogs.  You all inspire me daily with your great posts, helpful tips and race recaps.  I am exclusively a blogger and I have a facebook account.  Although I have a twitter and daily mile account,  I have yet to use them.  I still find it most comforting and time effective to use a spreadsheet to track my workouts.   In fact in case you are interested there is there is a fabulous running spreadsheet download here.  Old school, I know...

I do find that sometimes social media can leave me feeling a little exposed,  but I know so many of you use other forms of social media for information and inspiration for your training.

So knowing that I am very late to the party on this one,  which forms of social media do you embrace or shy away from?  Twitter?  Daily Mile?  Others?    Have these helped motivate you with your training and connect with other runners?

Any recommendations? 

Thanks for reading!

I have a daily mile account but I no longer use it. I just keep track on my own. I'm on FB and blogging. To me that's enough to keep up with! LOL

I do have Daily Mile and Twitter, I just don't get Twitter! I've never used either one...I'm with "Mama" FB and blogging are enough for me..and sometimes that is even too much! (:

I use blogger and facebook. But the later mostly for keeping in touch. I shy way from twitter like the plague. Never liked the idea of it so I never bothered.

I blog about my running and use facebook too, but on facebook I maybe mention running/exercise once a week at most.

I have FB and of course blogger. My Dailymile and Twitter accounts are dormant. As for tracking my running progress, I totally rely on my garmin.

I have Facebook, Twitter, and Daily Mile. However, I only use FB and DM. I don't really care for Twitter.

i have twitter, only b/c i can use it on my phone and it gives me something else to read at work... ;) facebook is a given.

i am soo tired of creating log ins for everything. i think i will forever be a spreadsheeter!

I have daily mile and twitter and love them both! It opens up a whole new world of runners and resources out there.

Blog and Facebook.
Not interested in Twitter (like I need another internet addiction!)

My FB is private though.
