Friday Fascinations: 5 Favorite LinkUps

Hi Everyone!  TGIF!  I have so much exciting stuff planned for this weekend!  I will be running on the Pacific Crest Trail with my dearest BRFs Jenn and Jamye!  Can't.  Even.  Wait!

But first, I want to introduce you to my 5 favorite Blogger Linkups!

1.  Let's start with the Friday Five Link Up! with Mar, Courtney and Cynthia AKA the DC Trifecta!  I try to join them on Fridays whenever I can because they plan their topics so far in advance!  I like that.  And this week their theme was 5 Ways to Share the Running / Fitness Love.  What better way to do that than thru a LinkUp?

2.  Next up is OF COURSE the Wednesday GIVEAWAY Roundup!  Erica and I host this one every week and there are always about 40-50 Giveaways for you to check out and enter.  And don't forget to add your own!  In fact, go check it out RIGHT NOW!  I bet there are a few good ones you want to enter!  Who doesn't love to #WinAlllThePrizes?

3.  I am also loving our brand new #ThursdayTriumph LinkUp.  Each week, Carlee, Linzie and I are bringing you the triumphs in our lives and hope that you join us too!  We felt that we needed a venue for happy positive pat yourself on the back posts!  So there you go!  Won't you please check it out?  You can read the first one here!  And add your own link!

4.  Then there is Jill Conyers and her awesome Fitness Friday linkup!  You can find me there most Fridays too!  She always has a super delicious recipe or a fitness move and she has some amazing bloggers link up with her too!  I am so happy I got to know Jill thru the #SweatPink community!

5.  And finally, there is the crew over at Foodie Friday headed up by the super awesome The Fit Foodie MamaFairy BurgerPowered By BlingChocolate Runner Girl and Whatever Floats Your Oats   I have gotten to know some of them over the inter webs and they are fantastic.  AnnMarie of Fit Foodie Mama sported her PaceYourself shirt from across the county in support of Epilepsy.  That is how awesome these people are!  Every week, they have a new theme and a yummy recipe to go with it.  If you want to lick your screen, this is the LinkUp for you!

I realize there are so many I left out.  For example, two that I have been loving and participating in quite frequently lately are:


And I am sure I am forgetting a bunch more.  But LONG story short, LinkUps are a GREAT way to get all the interesting blogs in one spot and spread your fitness message!

What linkups do you love to read?  Participate in?

As always, I wish you Happy Feet,
SD Mom
