Beantown on the Horizon

For most people, April 1st is a time to brush off the practical jokes and silly humor. For more than 20,000 runners, however, the advent of April signals the build-up of nerves in anticipation of the annual Boston Marathon. Whether you’re among the elite group of athletes qualified for Boston, or you’re on hand to […]

Hydration To Go

I like to run unencumbered. But I also like to keep my body well hydrated, and therefore I need a solution for carrying my sports drink in comfort on the run. Fuel Belt provides numerous options for lightweight portable hydration. My latest favorite, theSprint Palm Holder, secures a 10-oz bottle in the curve of my […]

Running Down Under

I have a confession to make. I’m a triathlete, and as such I embrace three sports with near equal gusto. But I’ll admit, the one I love the most is running. I sometimes feel that advocating one over the other in triathlon circles is akin to a parent admitting favoritism among their children – but […]

Real Women of Running – Running for the Big Bucks

On occasion, I enjoy posting quotes from real women runners.

Hosted by Adidas and led by coaches from API, sprinters Allyson Felix (pictured), Veronica Campbell-Brown and Christine Ohuruogu—all medal-winning Olympians and world champions—demonstrated a variety of drills they perform before a track workout. […]

Sporty Jewels

When Denise Relke was sidelined from running due to a broken ankle, she created a running pendant in her silversmithing class. The pendant served as a talisman to ensure that Denise’s ankle would heal and she would be back on her feet again soon, running her favorite trails. Denise wasn’t the only one inspired by […]

Ask your questions to Olympic sprinting champions

Today I’m in L.A. for a “running camp” hosted by Adidas, designed to introduce members of the media to Adidas-sponsored athletes and to present new gear for the upcoming season. The event is interesting for a few reasons, including the odd coincidence that I’m the only female member of the U.S. media in attendance. After […]

Dawna frequently travels to speak to men and women across the nation about health and well-being. Dawna had an interesting career before founding Women’s Running. […]

Natural Motion Running Shoes

I’ve struggled with running injuries for years. In my quest to run farther with fewer problems, I’ve been experimenting with a wide range of factors, from my running form and cross-training to how many runs per week I add to my schedule. But the one thing I’ve never really investigated is perhaps the most crucial: […]
