Monica Olivas

Monica’s blog initially began as a way to document the training for her first marathon, and it turned into much more than she ever expected.

Since then she has completed over 80 half or full marathons and has no plans to slow down any time soon.

A Group Run with Some of the Ladies of Salty Running


Today’s episode will be a little different than usual.

Instead of the usual one on one chat, I’ll be talking with seven ladies in a bit more of a round table-esqe discussion.

And the tie that binds? All seven are contributors to Salty Running.

Today, I have the pleasure of chatting with Salty, Cinnamon, Pumpkin, Ginger, Pimento, Catnip, and Bergamot.

A Quick Look at the Salty Running History

It sounds a little crazy, but there weren’t many websites that focused on the needs/wants of the competitive female runner just a few years ago. Read more

Running an Ultra With Nary a Clue

Suzy has fallen in love with the 50 mile distance, even though she’s only raced that distance once.

The fact that she’s only run 50 miles once (and only one other ultra distance event in general) and she loves the distance was a bit of a surprise to me, but her reasoning makes sense.

When she ran her 50 miler, Suzy finished as the 3rd female and qualified to represent Canada at the Commonwealth games.

With that type of success in a race, I can see why 50 miles has a special place in Suzy’s heart.

The other reason that she enjoyed her 50 mile race so much is the different vibe that is present in the ultra running community. Suzy felt at home with the ultra runners, whether she’s raced lots of ultras or not. Read more
