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

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

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

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

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

Another week bites the dust! Things got back to normal here at Salty Running this week after Monday’s championship round of the Greatest Women’s Blog Tournament. Not only were our spicy collection of bloggers racking up those miles, they were bringing you some great posts! And you know, they weren’t they only ones bringing it. Every week our commenters add a little something something to the site with their experiences 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

Can you feel the excitement in the air? It’s madness, baby… March Madness! The basketball tournament is this Salty blogger’s favorite time of the year, and I’ve been glued to the games, sports talk radio, analysis – you name it. Even if you’re not into hoops hoopla like I am, we know you’re probably getting pumped up for the Salty Running Greatest Women’s Running Blog tournament. Round One is in more » Read more

Does anyone else feel like they’re getting punked? By spring?!? I woke up to no power and a winter storm warning in NoDak, and it seems like the rest of the northern states are faring similarly.  It goes without saying that our Friday Five yesterday was timely albeit depressing.  We’re heating things up around here though – look for a March Madness-themed bracket coming to Salty Running soon and we’ve added more » Read more

Comment of the Week – 3.15.14

Our usual Comment of the Week maven, Cilantro is busy with school. (You better be studying, woman!) So, I put aside my Saturday night plans (or not because I have 3 small children and therefore no social life – and even more importantly, I have a long run in the morning) to write it up, myself. While I’m here, I thought maybe I’d take the time to catch you up more » Read more
