Running Shoes: Meet Kate – @themigrainedrunner

When I began posting about my random migraines, I received so many great questions about running while suffering from those horrid headaches. Thankfully, my migraines were “pop up” headaches and I haven’t had one for weeks. I think it was medication related, and now that I’m not that medication, I haven’t had one since. However, that […]

Running Shoes: Another Mile with Australia’s @TheWoundedPelicans

You may remember my interview from 2016 with the one of a kind Wounded Pelicans from Australia. In that interview, Tofes & Ant – distance runners among many other athletic titles – aimed to run several, several endurance events to raise 20,000 AUD for the Queensland Cancer Council.

You know, some of the most inspiring and transformative runners aren’t elites and didn’t come from crazy qualifying times in track & field. Some of us are out there fighting the good fight for what we believe in – ourselves – and that can be an uphill battle. The above proved true when I had […]

Meet Tofes & Ant: @thewoundedpelicans

So, most of us run for a reason, right? Many of us pick races based on causes we feel passionately about, and some of us fundraise for causes we believe in. Tofes (Christopher) and Ant, two boys living on Australia’s Gold Coast, have taken their passion to an entirely amazing (and albeit, crazy) level. These […]

Running Shoes: Meet @jeph.runs.sherby

About Jeph Jeph, who still considers himself somewhat of a novice, is a half-marathoner (and soon to be marathoner) from Canada. Many of us have a competitive side, and that counts for Jeph: He ran his first half-marathon as a “talk the talk, walk the walk” type of gig after smack-talking a friend. Ironically, his […]
