Editor’s Corner: Running on Vacation

Runners love routine. If you’re an a.m. runner and you have to do your workout in the evening, it feels like eating Cheerios for dinner—something just isn’t right. This week my routine was interrupted for the most wonderful of reasons: A family vacation to a tropical island. In the weeks leading up to the trip, […]

Editor’s Corner: Getting Marathon Ready!

What’s more exciting than making it official? Think: We’re getting married! or I’m buying a house!  Big announcements are thrilling, but on the flip side, they come served with a side of self doubt: Do I want to be with him forever? Can I really afford that place? My announcement may not be extraordinarily life-changing, […]

Editor’s Corner: Reader Chat with Meb Keflezighi

Olympic silver medalist, first American finisher at the 2011 New York City Marathon and winner of the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials, Meb Keflezighi is truly a member of distance running royalty. Last night, I had the opportunity to chat with Meb as he gears up for the New York City Half Marathon and London 2012. […]

Editor’s Corner: Women’s Running Cover Shoot

I’m about to do something I’ve never, ever done before—and so is Women’s Running. 🙂 Our March/April issue hits newsstands next week. Normally, we don’t release content before the magazine’s in stores, but what the heck? It’s Friday!  I won’t tell if you don’t. . . . This month, we’re revealing a totally new look […]

Editor’s Corner: Sharing is Caring

When I interview women runners, one of my go-to questions is: “What are your proudest running moments?” Whether I’m talking to elite athletes or half marathon moms, the answer I get is almost always a variation on the same theme. Instead of citing a personal record or a favorite race, runners consistently mention a time […]

Editor’s Corner: Living Legend

Joan Benoit Samuelson is beloved the world over, but in Maine (her home state), she is absolutely treasured. For a young runner like myself, growing up in New England, it was impossible not to be instilled with a serious case of role-model-syndrome for the Olympic gold medalist. I’ve read her training manual, cried while watching […]

Editor’s Corner: Racing in the Lion City

How far would you travel for a race? Last month, my yearning for a great 13.1-miler took me all the way to . . . SINGAPORE! The Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore weekend is an event well worth the journey. One Sunday each December, the streets of this city-state are filled to the gills with runners—65,000 […]

Editor’s Corner: Olympic Marathon Trials

Does it get any better than that? I was lucky enough to attend the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials held in Houston last weekend. What an experience! I am an avid running fan, so it felt akin to having 50-yard-line seats to the Super Bowl—except better. For those of you who aren’t pathologically obsessed with professional […]

Editor’s Corner: Ragnarly!

What kind of sick, twisted humans consider a 200-mile, 24-hour-plus relay race in which you’re either running at full speed or stuck in a cramped van “fun”? Runners, of course! This sums up the overnight running party otherwise known as Ragnar Relay. I was lucky enough to take part in the Ragnar Florida Keys event […]

Editor’s Corner: Meet + Greet

Pleasure to meet you! As the editor in chief of Women’s Running, I’ll be taking over this blog once a week to give you a  behind-the-scenes look at our magazine and an all-access pass to running events around the world. Since we’ll be spending every Friday together, I should probably introduce myself.
