Introducing Peanut!

Hi Salties!! I’m Peanut and I am so excited to be joining such an incredible community of fast runner chicks! You might be thinking, hmmm, peanut isn’t even a spice, but I chose it for two reasons: 1. To show my appreciation for the greatest staple in the diet of runners everywhere, peanut butter. 2. At 19, I have much less experience than many ‘seasoned’ Salties. That being said, as a more » Read more

Introducing Parsley!

Hello everyone! I am stepping far out of my comfort zone with this, but am looking forward to joining the community! I am not a social media-type person, but enjoy writing, and have guest blogged elsewhere, so am taking the leap to become part of this party!  After meeting Salty and Cinnamon in Jacksonville, I started reading your stories and found them interesting, informative, and liked that they are collectively more » Read more

Introducing Caraway!

Hi Salty Runners! I’m honored and excited to be on the Salty team. I’m 39, living in Berlin, Germany with my four year-old son, my husband, and two cranky middle-aged cats. When I’m not playing hide and seek, building with Duplos, or working as a university department administrator, I run. Sometimes in the park near my house in the city, sometimes through 18th- and 19th-century classical landscapes and along the more » Read more

Introducing Paprika!

Hello, Salty Runners! I am excited to be a part of this community and am honored to be a part of such a strong group of women. Before being selected to write for Salty Running, I was an avid reader of the site, and appreciated how much the Salty Running crew championed women in their running endeavors. A couple months ago, I chatted with Ginger about referring to myself as more » Read more

Introducing Mustard!

Hey there! I’m writing from Eugene, Oregon, Tracktown USA! I’m so excited to begin contributing to the Salty Running community! I’m looking forward to writing about my perspective of track and field as a spectator sport (because yes, it is a spectator sport!), training for a BQ, and general running fun. First, a little bit about me. I’m a born and grown southern Ohioan now fully entrenched in the Pacific Northwest. more » Read more

Introducing Poppy!

Hello Salty Running! I am excited to be joining the group! I am a mom to a three-year-old boy and one-year-old girl and a licensed massage therapist. I currently work part-time so I can spend the bulk of the day at home with the kids. These days I do a lot of my training on my own in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, with the exception of stroller runs with the kids. I do more » Read more

Introducing Spearmint!

Hey everyone! As a reader and lover of Salty Running I can’t even tell you how excited I am to be part of this community of strong, beautiful, smart, and fast women. I began running about six years ago after a full-time desk job left me feeling like I needed to move. I was absolutely miserable sitting still all day staring at a computer screen, so I began to go for more » Read more

Introducing Tea

Hello, Salties! I had a blast meeting Salty and Cinnamon in Jacksonville and I’m psyched to be joining this community! Yesterday Cinnamon told you a little bit about my story, but here’s the extended version: By day, I’m a science journalist, writing about the body and brain for various publications. By early morning, I’m a marathoner who survives by drinking copious amounts of tea (I can’t stand coffee), eating too more » Read more

Introducing Barley!

Hi all, I am so excited to be added to the Salty Running crew! Before I start rambling on and on about running, something that happens often, I should probably tell you a little about myself. You can call me Barley, if you’re curious about the name, just look at the main ingredients in Guinness. See, we are already getting to know each other! You already know I’m a running more » Read more

Introducing Bergamot!

Greetings, sultry, salty running goddesses! I am so, so happy to be part of the Salty community! I am a typical millennial: in the midst of my quarter life crisis and I haven’t even reached my quarter life yet! Ok, that’s actually a joke. While many in my generation are stereotyped as directionless, I have lots of direction and a lot to be proud of. However, I’m interested in many things and often more » Read more

Introducing Dill!

I am a thirty-something mother of two from Ohio and, some might say, a prolific marathoner.  I haven’t always been a running fool. In fact, it wasn’t until nine years ago that I fell back in love with running. My first foray with running was on the high school cross country team. I was decent, but not consistent, bouncing on and off the varsity team from week to week. I stuck more » Read more

Introducing Cocoa!

Hello Salty readers! I am excited to be joining the Salty bloggers. I benefited greatly from reading Salty’s training logs during pregnancy, and having undergone a recent c-section, I wanted to give back a little and provide my own training logs during recovery.  C-section recovery has been addressed a little bit on Salty running before, but I am hoping to go into more detail about my recovery. I also really more » Read more

Introducing Pimento!

Hey, Salty Runners! I am utterly thrilled to be joining a community of strong women runners, as I’m sure many of my non-running friends are thrilled that I now have an outlet for all my running talk that isn’t them. I’m not an elite, but I’ve gone from zero to marathoning and ultramarathoning in a short amount of time and it’s rocked my world for the better. I hope that more » Read more

Introducing Pumpkin!

Hello Salty Runners!  I am your latest spice, the very deliciously named Pumpkin Spice.  You can call me Pumpkin for short.  I hail from the Twin Cities, but have done most of my adulting in Moorhead, MN, essentially, on the Minnesota side of Fargo, ND.  I am coming up on 10 years of wedded bliss to my awesome husband and am a mom to a 7 year old boy and more » Read more

Guess Who’s Back?

Back again. Mo is back. Tell a friend. Hey Salty readers and my fabulous fellow Salty writers, I missed you! The Salty bosses were gracious enough to let me take a hiatus from contributing while I explored some changes in my life and took some time to figure out what was really important to me. Don’t worry, nothing crazy happened that didn’t turn out fine in the end. I didn’t experience a traumatic loss, more » Read more
