Hello, Chamomile!

Bonjour from bayou country, Salty Runners! I am a newly-transplanted resident of Louisiana, and it is my pleasure to be representing Salty Running down here in the Deep South. I’m learning to appreciate Cajun culture, crawfish étouffée, big crazy festivals, and the social running scene of Baton Rouge (where the roads are flat, the weather is hot, and the motto is “Run hard, live easy!”) My husband’s job transfers us more » Read more

Take a deep breath of Lavender

Well hello there, Salty Runners! I greet you in the final year of my 20′s.  I can see the rest of you 20-somethings grimacing; I always thought aging was over at 25 too!

Where it’s totally legit to reach for the running tights before Halloween and to use a get-out-of-a-tempo-run-free card because there’s a bear on your beloved running route. (Yup, for real, totally happened.) I’m a recovering type-A workaholic (See: Catbert: Evil HR Director) turned hausfrau and running enthusiast (See: June more » Read more
