I've been building a small blog as a side project to keep training log data for family and friends but I want to expand it to include information from CF, PM, and other groups to make it easier for them to have more info. I was wondering how you go about getting permission to link these sites and give credit to the information on them? It's somewhat like simple fit but more on a blog side.

Do I just email the owners and ask permission to link and give credit for the info on the sites?

You don't need permission to provide a link to info - and usually there's no issue with providing a brief excerpt from whatever you're linking to. But you do need explicit permission to post entire blocks of text, photos, or video. You'll rarely get that permission because the whole point of putting that info on a site is to draw traffic to that site. That said, it doesn't hurt to ask.
