Comment of the Week – 8.16.2014

As an editor here on SR, I always think it’s funny how 25 different women can write stuff completely independent from one another and we can still end up with topics that fit like a hand in a glove. Lemongrass touched on the mind-boggling frustration that we runners commonly put on a few if we’re marathon training. We know it’s stressful, but be careful with how you manage it, and more » Read more

As the fall racing season starts to heat up, Salties are picking up steam as well, and we had another week of great posts and race recaps. And with great posts comes great comments, which brings us to this weeks comment of the week winner!

Comment of the Week – 7.26.2014

At the risk of defaulting to the two most generic topics ever (weather and time), can you believe it is almost August?  Although school is starting soon which I’m not quite ready for, it’s also getting closer to the fall racing season.  It makes the end of summer so much more palatable. I’m even looking forward to it. Plus, the end of summer means the time of beautiful running weather is returning more » Read more

Another delightful week in Salty Running-land! (can you tell I’ve had my daily dose of run-spiration?)  From tips for running in the heat to Basil’s confession’s about how to be too nice on race day, we’ve had a lot of great conversations going on! One of the big steps forward for women’s running, in my opinion, has been an understanding (and even welcome) of running whilst pregnant.  But as a runner, more » Read more

Comment of the week – 7.12.2014

It was a close one this week. And by close one, I mean that until 6 am this morning I wasn’t even sure I’d get a Comment of the Week post done! But, as I promised weeks ago (okay, maybe just two weeks ago), I (Cilantro) and Comment of the Week, are back. I keep my promises. As y’all are enjoying your pre-run coffee (or maybe you are already done?), more » Read more

Comment of the Week – 7.5.2014

A belated Happy Independence Day to all of us in America, and happy first weekend in July!  Although summer “officially” started two weeks ago, July has always seemed like the real start of the summer to me, and I’m ready for a summer run-cation.  I find it very hard to plan any trip that doesn’t involve some sort of running or racing, which I know makes it hard for family more » Read more

Cilantro’s 2015 Run Across the USA

Tomorrow is our nation’s birthday and what better way to celebrate than to run across the lower 48! I’m not kidding. For years, I’ve wanted to run across the United States. As awesome as that sounds I’ve been hesitant to do it. First because it’s, well, far. Second is the whole time and money thing. But now with a few ultras under my belt and as I enter my last more » Read more

Aloha from Hibiscus!

This Hibiscus is glad to meet all of you salty little things. I’ve been running for what seems like a million years, but let’s call it an even 12.  My first race was a half marathon followed immediately by a full, and I haven’t really stopped since. But I wasn’t always the fine specimen of athleticism you see now: I used to be 40lbs heavier, married and childless.  Over the more » Read more

Comment of the Week – 6.28.2014

Comment of the week is back (and so am I)!  You may remember me, Cilantro, a runner (obviously) and a beginning ultrarunner.  I disappeared a bit after a disappointing finish (or lack thereof) at the END-Sure 100k and dedicated myself to finishing my second year of my PhD.  My course load is lighter this summer, and I finished my first 50-miler last weekend, so I think it’s safe to say more » Read more

Introducing Lemongrass!

Hi! It’s time to make a little room in your spice rack for me, Lemongrass! I’m writing from East Greenbush, NY, a suburb of Albany, NY. I’m a  middle school English teacher (6th, 7th, and 8th grades) who loves spending time with my amazingly cute family. I have two children, a boy and a girl (ages 3 and 1) and a husband who understands and supports without complaint that long runs more » Read more
