Help me pick a new blog name!

And win a prize if you get picked!  (No, really!)

I figured it’s about time I go from a blog name to my own domain. is already taken by my running group in DC.  And at the same time, it’s time for a change, no?  I named my blog the same as my running group, because I had no other ideas at the time (and I knew I wanted to blog about my training, but I had no idea what direction the blog would take, or even if I’d be blogging alone or having other people talk about their training).  I remember I considered “Turtle Pace” as well, but ended up not going with that.

Nowadays, I find it false advertising that my blog name is only related to running when lately I don’t even feel like a runner anymore.  I do still plan to run and blog about my running (and lets hope there are more marathons in my future), but lately this blog is less about training and more about life, trips, puppies, foreign service lifestyle AND running.

So help me pick a new name!  And I’m not opposed to a running-related name either (false advertising or not), as long as it’s a clever one.

I can’t seem to have any ideas…  I thought of “I Run This World” to combine the running with my moves/travels, but it sort of sounds like I’m after world dominance, no?

I thought of “Runderful” but maybe it’s too sappy?

I thought of “Where in the World Am I”? But there’s already a blog (Foreign Service, no less) with that name…

I’m not opposed to using my name, Carla, for the blog title, or even my last name Reinisch, or Karl’s (maybe “The Trunk adventures” or “Running off the Trunk”? – or does that sound like I’m trying to get rid of Karl?  Plus, the blog is still more about me than Karl, who is way too private to have a blog).  Sarah was very clever in making their last name, Novak, sound like a country: Novakistan.

Either vote for something mentioned here, or come up with your own! 

If I do end up using a reader-suggested name, I promise you some Filipino goodies in the mail!  (Dried mangoes and something handmade from the Greenhills market?  A strand of pearls?  I’ll surprise you!)


GO!  (And super super thanks!)

  2. Running Around the World
    Where in the World is Carla? (Remember Where in the world is Carmen San Diego?!)

    New reader here, by the way! Thanks for sharing your web address.

    • Running Around the World: I like it! But CRAP, that domain is taken by another blogger!!! UGH! I can’t have a blog with the same name, specially when there’s no domain.

      Where in the World is Carla? Hmmmm, not bad…

    For a whimsical feel… Junk in (Our/My/The) Trunk! It can apply both to your running/fitness efforts, and anything else (any other “junk”) you feel like talking about. If you use “our”, it might encourage Karl to contribute from time to time… :o)

  4. I don’t have a suggestion, but I have an anti-suggestion: I’m not into Karl’s name as part of the domain. He does have a good name for punning, but I like that yours is the blog of a traveling, running, interesting woman who happens to be married and front loading Karl’s last name might cause you to come off as a married woman who also travels and runs and is interesting. Karl does enter into your blog, obvs, but it’s YOUR (singular) blog. Maybe I’m overthinking!

  5. The only thing that comes to mind is

    On Foreign Soil
    Running on Foreign Soil

    I thought “Carlandia” would be cute, but it looks like it’s taken! I’ll keep thinking… I loved the vide of your place, btw! And you are beautiful without makeup :).
