It’s beginning to look a lot like the off-season! The interwebs is full of off-season running tips this week, whilst I’m finally ramping up for my next FKT attempt in December. If you have FOMO, hit me up and I’ll tell you about how you can virtually join or support the next speed record attempt.
This week’s roundup is coming to you from perhaps the second most wonderful place in the United States, Portland, Oregon. Alas, I’m not going to make it to Eugene, but let’s face it: anything touched by Nike has sort of lost its luster. At least, it has for me.

It’s finally here – my favorite day of the year – November first. This is the day I wait for all year long, the day that tempts me with tantalizing teasers, yet I resist. November 1 is the day in which I can officially start to listen to holiday music. Don’t @ me.
However, that’s not why you’re here, and most of the news this week is firmly rooted in October. So while you might expect a running Christmas playlist from me soon, today I’ll just stick with the best women’s running links from the past week.
Just in time for Halloween weekend, it seems that the weather has cooled down everywhere but Palm Springs (which is also where I happen to be writing from this week). Either way, the world turns and the running news keeps on churning. Here are my notable links from this week.
Huge running weekend! Did you miss out? Don’t worry – we’ve got all the news you need to know below the jump.
Good morning from Golden, Colorado, where the weather is fine, and it is definitely
winter autumn. Let’s get to this week’s women’s running news (and, well, any other news that I think is relevant, important, or interesting).
Hey again, and happy autumn. Except it’s not autumn here, like at all. But the news keeps coming, and I keep telling you about it every Friday in the weekly roundup. Read more >>
Happy Friday! We’re bringing back a Salty Running tradition – the weekly roundup – and putting a new spin on it. The new weekly roundup is my hot take on what you should read from the interwebs from the world of (women’s) running that week. Some of the links will relate to training, others to specific experiences of women runners – some will focus on major women’s accomplishments in running and race updates. And others will relate to running, maybe tangentially, but in ways that I hope will be enlightening, empowering, or motivating. Look for it in your feeds and on the site every Friday. Read more >>
Track is back! Indoor season has begun, which means we can geek out early on. Marathon season is ramping up, too. This week’s highlights:
It’s a new year, Salties! We’re bringing back the Monday roundtable and giving it an update. We’ll be using this Monday morning space to share the awesome stuff happening in the world of running (and beyond) and as a space to discuss all that with you all. And, get excited: #SALTYCHAT IS BACK! Join us on Twitter at 8 p.m. EST tonight to join in the conversation!
It’s that time of year again, ladies! Whether you’re welcoming summer with open arms or hissing at the sun and shrinking back into your air-conditioned sanctuary, we’re with you all the way through August.
Except for Basil, who’s in Alaska, and Peppadew, in South Africa. They’re laughing at the rest of us while enjoying temperatures in the 50’s (°F). Even they know what it’s like to slog away through blistering heat though!
That said, it’s a good thing there is a wealth of knowledge here at Salty Running to get your motor running even on the hottest of sunny days! More after the jump! Read more >>
