The NYC Marathon is Back, so Here are 5 Running Blogs We Love

Welcome to Blog Profiles! Each week, we select a topic and handful of blogs that do a great job contributing to the conversation. Since the New York City Marathon has returned, we’re dedicating this week’s roundup running blogs. Do you have a blog that deserves recognition? Tweet our writers at @BeyondBylines.

Running is clearly one of our favorite topics because it’s one we return to every few years. For even more top running blogs, check out Part 1.

Whether you are keen on the symbolic suggestion that this is a stride towards [the new] normal or in need of inspiration to hit the tread, it was nice to see The TCS New York City Marathon looking 50 and fabulous!

In celebration of yesterday’s returning dash to glory — for the streets of New York and spectators across the globe — I introduce this month’s line-up of #RunningBlogsWeLove.

1. RunToTheFinish

As a certified running coach and personal trainer, Amanda Brooks kicks off today’s list and is easily one of my favorite creators I’ve showcased to date. Brooks started RunToTheFinish in 2007 and has logged 26,000 miles and thousands of posts. This one-woman hub has trailblazed a path for runners of all levels to reach their personal goals.

As a matter of fact, my first thought was that I wanted to be her friend. And after being sucked into post after post, it’s clear that her authenticity has created a sense of community that is a rarity in today’s influencer-driven world.

2. Shut Up + Run

With a writing style that’s complementary to my cheeky inclination for candor, allow me to introduce you to the one-and-only Beth Risdon. Having just found the jackpot that is Shut Up + Run, the kids might refer to it as an absolute banger, and it’s most definitely a must-read! This uproariously uncensored creator began her running journey around 2005 and remains selfless enough to share her pits and peaks as she nears her 20th mile marker!

P.S. Risdon says she may have been “kind of funny” in her formative years but I am laughing my butt off and am so happy to see the blog’s recent resurrection. I am also going to do some digging because I need a visual of that IBTC shirt.

3. Running For Wellness

As you’ve come to see, I subscribe to the importance of mental health advocacy and blogger Lauren is one of the tenured champions that has contributed to this much-needed conversation. Aside from Lauren’s position as an established advocate, she is a mother, wife, certified running coach, and has endured the Ironman not once but TWICE!

I think it’s clear why this celebrated blogger has earned a position on this list as a blogger and trusted thought leader in the running space.

4. Running For Real

Having built a community that stands 5K strong, Tina Muir has evolved from a traditional blogger to head of a highly celebrated team producing episodes that remain true to her beggining. This hit podcast supports a conversation rooted in running but centered around our ability to be the change!

We represent every level of ability and depth of experience. We celebrate what we have in common and we learn from our differences. We live in many countries, but we are a community. We know that together we can make a positive change in the world. We are real. We are runners. – Running for Real

5. TheRunnerDad

As a father of three, Matt Orlando is sharing his journey to getting back on track after placing exercise on the back burner when he fell victim to the consequences of “sympathy” eating during his wife’s pregnancy. Orlando says his ultimate motivation as a desire to see his children have kiddos of their own. I think it is safe to say that Matt is an all-around stand-up creator with a diversified hub of tips and tricks for aspiring Super Dads everywhere!

To lace up today’s lineup, I’ll leave you with one [substantive] cliché, as a reminder that we will never be as young as we are right now. So, cheers my friends, to running by our own rules. After all, life is a marathon, and we have the endurance to keep on keeping on at our own pace.

Until Next Time,

Cory Max
