Yeehaw! Weekly Roundup 8.17.12

Yeehaw! We had a great week!

This week’s cowgirl wisdom is dedicated to Domitian: “It don’t take a genius to spot a goat in a flock of sheep.”

Last weekend Nutmeg let out her pet peeves about shared paths with Running Etiquette: Rules of the Road…er…Multipurpose Path. Did you know about these rules of the road?

Ginger’s piece A Girl’s Guide To Letsrun.com was featured on the home page of LetsRun as a recommended read, and even earned Salty Running its first comment from a LetsRun troll!  It also happens to be a very informative and helpful introduction. Way to go, Ginger!

Rosemary got us thinking about what psychology can tell us about how to improve our running with What’s Your Running Personality?

Mint got down and dirty with some math in How to Nail Your Goal Marathon Pace on Race Day. The formulas within hold the key to PRing in your next race!

Sassafras opened up about Facing the Ghosts of [her] Collegiate Running Past and shared what it was like to push hard in a NCAA Division 1 athletic program…only to bottom out.

Clove’s Olympic Adventure: When It’s More Than Just Running is not just a play-by-play of watching the men’s Olympic marathon at the 2012 London Games, it’s a discussion of inspiration that brought a tear even to my skeptic’s eyes.

Paprika got real with us about what life is like for a runner who’s stepping up her training in her 20’s with Life in Transition: Twenty-Something Runners. Balancing life and running is tough work!

Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I wrote the best damn Visitor’s Guide to Running in New York City you’ll find on the Internet. In fact, I challenge you to comment on it with any ideas that I missed!

Pepper came clean about her Secret Ultrarunning Past! Gasp! Shock! Horror! And here I thought Pepper was a road-racing speed demon!  Never fear, she’s not leaving the roads behind just yet, but she is giving us lots of great advice if we want to try it!

Nutmeg came back around this week with Diary of a Beginner Runner: Finding Freedom in Watchless Running, in which she uses running to find some comfort in the midst of a trying time in her life.  Leave a comment and let her know we were all there once!

ATTENTION: Salty posted this week!  Between editing all our work, being six months pregnant, winning her age group in races, family vacation and an upcoming feature in a certain magazine…hint hint…my dear sister has been a very busy site director!  But she’s come back to us with a Friday 5 that echoes the classic comedic Friday 5’s of the early days of SR: 5 Types of Running Guys

And Salty reader Leah H. won Comment of the Week!  Congratulations Leah!

Cinnamon made Salty Running, takes lots of pictures and drinks lots of coffee. She has 8 more minutes to knock off her marathon for a 3:40 BQ, and will get there or die trying. Her writing is an eclectic mix of finding wholeness as an average runner, news reporting, curious reactions, satirical humor and more.
