About Amanda Brooks

Welcome runners!! I'm Amanda Brooks the one woman running the show around here since 2007.

Initially I started the blog as a way to connect with other runners, but over the years my Journalism degree kicked in and I wanted to really KNOW more about running, so I started to create researched articles and make connections with people smarter than me to answer questions!

It also spurred me to get my Personal Training Certification to better understand exactly how our bodies should move and become a running coach. I've worked with over 100 runners personally and thousands more through the online programs and challenges I've hosted over the years.

21,000 miles and 2,000 articles later, I feel pretty good about not only helping others, but understanding whatever you're going through on the run!
