Comment of the Month – November

2014 is almost over – but we can’t forget what happened here in November!  We had some great posts around here: Catnip talked about her Double DNFs and Oregano (one of our newest bloggers) wrote a pretty awesome post about how to tie our running shoes.  It seems so simple, but it isn’t! Speaking of new bloggers, we added three: Oregano, Peppadew, and Wintergreen!  Click on their names for their more » Read more

Gone Turkey Trottin’!

Salty here. I’m heading to the Big Apple! I’m taking my son to see the bright lights of the big city and to spend some time with Auntie Cinnamon. So we here at Salty Running are going to take a break from bringing you fresh material. In our absence, you can keep up with what the Salty Bloggers and I have been up to in our training logs.

Comment of the Month – October

It’s mid-November already, which means it’s about time for an October recap.  That’s how on top of things I am.  And because we have at least three months to talk about the weather, I’ll refrain from any weather-related commentary for now. Except for one: Snow already?  Really? October was a busy racing month for the spice rack, with a lot of race reports to read.  With great posts come great more » Read more

Introducing Peppadew!

Hi, I’m Peppadew, how do you do? I am a ultrarunner from Durban, South Africa, the home to the 89k Comrades Marathon, the biggest and oldest ultra in the world. I am also a mum of two small people and four doggy furbabies, a wife and a lawyer in one of the biggest firms in our city.  I have described our life as frenetic and full-on but it is also more » Read more

Introducing Wintergreen!

Hello fellow Salties! My name is Wintergreen and I live in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario Canada. I’m looking forward to getting to know all of you and sharing my love of our great sport. As my Salty moniker may imply I like winter. I live in Canada, so as you can imagine I have run in many a snowstorms and dodged snowploughs and salt trucks. Last year we had the coldest winter since I more » Read more

Introducing Oregano!

Greetings from Portland, Oregon! I am very excited to be joining the Salty crew and sharing my perspective and love for running with all of the amazing women who read and write for Salty Running! I am a single person enjoying the last year of my 20’s and cheap rent in a house with four other 20-somethings in Portland, OR. I started running in Minnesota when I was 19, for stress more » Read more

Comment of the Month – September 2014

Fall racing season is in full gear, and so are things at Salty Running.  In September, we had a lot of great posts.  Basil wrote an Open Letter to Brooks about their recent “upgrade” to her favorite shoe (pain we all have felt before) and they responded! Salty weighed in on what counted as a “PR” (and what doesn’t) and Pepper wrote about the difference between running and racing a more » Read more

Love to Run AND Write? Then We Want YOU!

The Salty Running spice rack is full of seasoned bloggers (get it? Har!) What I mean is that we’ve had mostly the same bloggers for a long time, bringing you the great posts you have come to know and love week after week – and boy do we love them for it! But, with a seasoned crew comes the need to add a few new spicy flavors to the mix. That more » Read more

Introducing Jasmine!

Hello Salty Running friends! I’m thrilled to be joining this wild group of women runners at an exciting time in my running life. I’m preparing to make my first attempt at breaking into the world of sub-elite marathon running this year. After many years of being an average runner, better than average cyclist and poor swimmer, it was time to take my favorite sport seriously. I am dying to tell more » Read more

Comment of the Week – 8.30.14

It’s Comment of the Week time! I mean it isn’t because it’s already Tuesday and COTW is supposed to publish at the end of the week. And that’s supposed to be every week, not every third week. Yes, we’ve been busy here at Salty Running! While I have been busy sending my oldest off to Kindergarten (!), Cinnamon has been working and moving! Garlic went on vacation and so many more » Read more

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

Comment of the week – 8.2.2014

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

Comment of the Week – 7.19.2014

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
