Looking for inspiration?

It’s time for a round-up of some of my favorite Instagram accounts, bloggers, vloggers, and podcasts!

As we are STILL stuck in COVID world, social media has been an often pleasant, sometimes informative, sometimes agitating, way to fill the void left by not being able to go out and see friends as much. I’ve tried to feature some legendary, great people who cover these topics, but also some lesser known folks who I love to follow as well!

Running and Fitness:

India Cook 


@i_of_endigo_runs on IG

She’s got a great vlog on YouTube as well as a The Run Duo podcast! She’s got a pretty inspiring Instagram feed as well!

Kyle Kranz 


@kyle_j_kranz on IG

He’s a plant based runner and coach who gives some pretty good info about both. 

Rich Roll


He’s got a long running podcast about a variety of wellness topics. He is a legendary ultrarunner and triathlete. He also wrote the amazing book Finding Ultra. You can follow him on IG as well @richroll

Vegan food:

Nora Taylor of Nora Cooks Vegan

Joanne posts really great recipes that are so beautifully photographed! Hers is an up and coming blog that deserves more attention!

Mental Health:

She provides excellent guidance on healing from childhood trauma. Plus, she’s got a new book!

Talking Points with Kia Rae


This is a new podcast from a good runner friend of mine, Nikkia Young. Her first episode was about setting boundaries. I’m looking forward to hearing more!

Life and Politics:

John Pavlovitz


John Pavlovitz is an author who articulates so well what is concerning about our country right now.

Paulie at The Life in My Years


He writes a truthful, heartfelt commentary on life in America that is often humorous. I’ve really enjoyed his recent posts. Another blog that deserves more attention!

So if you need some inspiration, check out these folks!

In Richmond, we are bracing for another round of winter weather. It has already started! We had about an hour of sleet before it changed over to snow. On Saturday, it’s supposed to ice. I have a feeling it will be an interesting commute to work!

Who do you follow for inspiration? I’d love to hear about it! As always, I hope you all are safe and healthy.
