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

Comment of the Week – 5.2.14

Well, hello there, Salties! It’s been a busy week for Salty Running. We introduced you to Catnip, talked about the importance of warm ups – just as the weather is warming up – and our blogging sisters, Salty and Cinnamon, both kicked butt at a 10 miler last weekend.  Time sure flies, huh? It’s hard to believe it’s already the first Saturday in May, which to this Kentucky gal only means more » Read more

Comment of Last Week! 4.19.14

Oh my, dear Salties, the season is upon us, when the weather is getting warmer and that means our schedules are slammed! The lovely part of being so busy lately was that I got to spend the last few days in Northeast Ohio with my dear sister, Salty, and we both killed it at the Cleveland 10 Miler last Saturday!  The hard part is that some of our Salty Running more » Read more

Introducing Catnip!

Hello Salty readers! I am crossing over from Salty fan to join the spice rack as Catnip. I am a 31-year old new mother from Ohio working as a speech-language pathologist. I’m married to a teacher/hockey coach. Oh, and we have a cat, naturally. I have been a runner since I was 12, joining the junior high cross country team ’cause everyone was doing it. I continued to run cross country and track through high more » Read more

Comment of the Week 4.5.14

It’s been an exciting week here at Salty Running!  We reported two impressive PRs: Eucalyptus killed it in the 10K last weekend, and Coriander logged a 32 minute PR in the 50K, also picking up top honors as the first female finisher in the female open division.  Our Greatest Women’s Running Blog Tournament continued to build momentum, opening up conversations between the best female runner-bloggers around and attracting a huge number more » Read more
