It’s awards season apparently. To be honest I got totally sick of the whole “vote for me” crassness that fills many blogs these days, especially from all the brand ambassador and PR company puppets and didn’t want involved in the whole shenanigans this year but it was pointed out to me that if someone has the decency to nominate me then I should accept that and whilst not jump on the conveyor belt of crassness and overkill at least have the decency to accept it. Aye fair enough. I have no idea who nominated me for Men’s Running magazine “influencer of the year” or why, or how I got voted into the shortlist but I did. Vote here if it tickles your fancy but while grateful I find it amusing.
I am also on the long list for the Running Awards “blog of the year” having reached the short list last year and received the silver award the year before. Again if you enjoy the blog have a vote here or look at some of rest and vote for your favourite.
None of this will in any way change my life so if you want to vote then magic, if you don’t then magic. I don’t need the validation, the smugness or the faux modesty of today’s award seekers, I just like to write and run and let that tell the story 🙂 I ain’t going to bang on about it, but will maybe put a further post up just before voting closes. #runningblog #runnersofinstagram #running #markgallmac #scottishrunner #scottishblogger #scottishathletics
