Having no running partner is no longer an excuse to skip your workouts. In today’s world, the internet keeps us from ever being without a supporting community of runners.
In fact, some of the most successful running bloggers have started their writing careers out of the necessity of connecting and sharing their journeys with others.
Whether you’re just a beginner looking for motivation or a veteran runner looking for advanced advice, you should add these 5 blogs to your RSS feed.
We know that too many great running blogs were left out of this list, so please be sure to add your favorites in the comments section.
We love Dorothy’s story! In college, she was on a path to obesity and inactivity, but running became a way for Dorothy to lose weight, quit bad habits, fight anxiety and gain confidence. In 2003, she crossed her first marathon’s finish line and something changed. She now describes herself as a “runner, who loves all things running, with a soft spot for the marathon”.
In 2009, she launched Mile Posts, where she helps others to become better runners, by sharing her story, race reports and inspirational messages.

Janae Jacobs started The Hungry Runner Girl after getting injured running the Boston Marathon in 2010. “If I’m not running, I might as well talk about running,” she said.
