But, with a seasoned crew comes the need to add a few new spicy flavors to the mix. That 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

The State of Salty Running

Hello Salty readers!  Our 2013 winter break has come to an end and it’s a new year.  For many of us, that means new goals, new commitments and re-commitments.  It means a fresh start.  And for Laura (Salty) and me (Cinnamon), that’s no different.  We both have big goals for ourselves in 2014–and we’ll get into those in future updates–but we also have some goals for Salty Running, and we more » Read more

The First Ever Salty Run n’ Joe!

Last Friday we hosted our first ever Salty Running Run N’ Joe near Salty headquarters here in Northeast Ohio.

The way it works is we all meet up and once we see who is there we can divide up into pace groups. For this run, more » Read more

Confessions of a Born Again Racer: Introducing Espresso!

I’ve called myself a ‘runner’ for 40 years – And in many ways running, along with the important people and core values I hold near and dear, serves to define this self I call “me”. It’s just part of who I am. I ran my first race when I was 8 years old. This was back in the days of gray sweats and Keds tennis sneakers. This was several years more » Read more

Want to Run a Cross-USA Relay? Rachel Aldrich Takes the Challenge!

When Salty Reader Rachel Aldrich contacted me through the Salty Running Facebook page, she had no idea Salty and I have a mom with MS too. She only knew she shared this with Ashley Kumlien, founder of MS Run the US, a cross-country running challenge to support Multiple Sclerosis research. This year Ashley and the other folks at MS Run the US chose Rachel to run segment #16 of what more » Read more

Hey Salty readers! I’m Coriander and I’m super excited to be blogging for Salty Running! I can’t remember how I got introduced to Salty Running, but I was so inspired by these lovely ladies that the feed went right into my Google Reader. I’ve been a fan ever since.

New Salty Bloggers: An Introduction to Cilantro!

I love to run. A lot. For most people I meet, that’s enough.  They automatically make assumptions about my lifestyle, wardrobe, attitude towards BBQ, and Saturday plans.  And most of their assumptions would be correct.  I try to be healthy, wear mostly Lululemon when I’m not at work or church, and spend most Saturday mornings running (I LOVE good BBQ, though). Usually, they also assume that I’ve always been a runner.  But I more » Read more

A Salty Farewell to Paprika: A New Journey…My Master’s Thesis!

Hello, my dear Salties! Graduate school is kicking into full gear, and this semester I am starting a new (and massive!!) project– my Master’s thesis. When I first got accepted into my Master’s in Clinical Psychology program, I planned for my thesis to be on flow and how it encourages personal growth and well-being. For me, personally, I experienced flow while running, and believed there was more to running than more » Read more
