what a year

See what our cover runner has to say about this era in American women’s distance running at womensrunning.com/desvideo. Has there ever been a year like this—with so many eyes not just on running or on women’s running, but on American women’s running? Sure, the momentum technically started in November 2017, when Shalane Flanagan, in a race that was supposed to wrap up her already impressive career, won the New York City Marathon, ending a four-decade drought for American women. But that led into the most incredible, inspiring and downright badass win in recent memory when, in April, Desiree Linden (this month’s cover runner) ran 26.2 miles in an icy, windy downpour to break the tape at the Boston Marathon. She was the first American woman to win it since 1985, and her…

Embracing the Off-Season Fall marathon season isn’t over yet, but the chill in the air signals it will be soon—and that means it’ll be the time of year when most runners settle into their off-season. That doesn’t mean throwing exercise and all of your other healthy habits out the window. In fact, there are a few simple ways you can simultaneously retain your fitness and give yourself a mental break while taking time away from running: • TAKE A HIKE: If your outside world becomes a snowy wonderland in the winter, consider going for a hike as a cross-training supplement to your workouts. Just make sure to bring a buddy along—or visit womensrunning.com/takeahike for safety tips if you choose to explore alone.• HARD-HIITING WORKOUTS: High-intensity interval training has been shown to improve…

2018 in review

SHUTTERSTOCK.COM Des Linden wasn’t the only woman who kept showing up through the chilly, pelting rain at this year’s Boston Marathon. The thousands of women behind her demonstrated that they were every bit as tough. The New York Times reported the dropout rate for men rose by 80 percent, compared with just 12 percent for women. When the going gets tough, women get going. —Daphne Matalene, contributor A highlight of the year? Receiving my much-anticipated copy of Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow. by Shalane Flanagan and Elyse Kopecky. Not only are the recipes delicious (and simple!), but I love the photos and the insight into Shalane’s and Elyse’s daily lives. Bravo to these ladies for getting another fantastic cookbook out there! —SARAH WASSNER FLYNN, CONTRIBUTOR My favorite running moments of 2018 have actually taken…

runner reads

Late Air By Jaclyn Gilbert Little A, $15, amazonpublishing.amazon.com Read it: When a Yale college running coach finds his star athlete unresponsive during a routine practice, the trauma resurrects ghosts of his failed marriage and forces him to face the consequences of his repressed past and tenuous grip on life. Desperate love and a terrible tragedy are contrasted against the backdrop of competitive women’s running in this debut novel from Gilbert. Snapshot: “It wasn’t until several minutes later, in the distance, that he saw the white of her T-shirt, shapeless and crumpled. The closer he approached, the more he could discern of her body: fetal, motionless. He checked his stopwatch—10:23:57—and clicked stop. Frantically, he thrust his body forward, shoulders jerking unevenly to make up for his wobbly stride. He bent over where she lay in…

#milesformollie

Twenty-year-old Mollie Tibbetts’ murder while running alone near her home in Brooklyn, Iowa, hit the women’s running community like a cold shock—not necessarily because of the event itself, but for the incredulity we feel in the midst of the #MeToo era that terrifying acts of violence against women are still happening in 2018. Runners responded to Tibbetts’ killing with outrage, sadness and fear, some declaring they’d never run alone again as others embraced the #MilesForMollie movement that began shortly after her death. In a year littered with ups and downs, this senseless killing of a runner stood out, a potent reminder that there are no guarantees. All we as runners can do is take the safety precautions available to us, trust our instincts and refuse to take risks whenever our…

pushing my mental limits

The first thought most runners have when an injury pops up is about the physical recovery process, but in reality, mental fortitude is just as important. In high school, I was undertrained, and in college, I was in over my head. The Georgetown University women had won the NCAA title the fall I was being recruited, and I was ecstatic to join them. When I arrived, an eagerness to succeed and a competitive drive led me into a cycle of pushing myself too hard, getting fit too fast and getting injured too often. The summer following my freshman year, several of my teammates decided to prepare for the cross-country season in Flagstaff, Ariz. Wanting nothing more than to be a legitimate contender for our squad, I decided to join the handful of…
