The Liebster Award: A Shout Out to Bloggers

Hey Guys! So just recently I received a comment from a fellow fitness blogger, The Complaining Runner explaining that she nominated me for the Liebster Award. I was pretty thrilled to receive this award (as I can imagine most other bloggers would be to) and it was so sweet of her to nominate me for this! But then I paused for a second and realized I literally had no idea what the Liebster Award even was! Sooo…copied straight from The Complaining Runners blog, here’s a quick sum up of what this award even is!


First off – Liebster is a German for “favorite” so I guess in layman’s terms this is the Favorite Blog Award. It is awarded to a blog that has less than 200 followers. It is an amazing opportunity to get to know other blogs and pay it forward. The rules for receiving this award are:

Answer the 11 questions the blogger who nominated you asked.
THE BEST PART: nominate new bloggers!
