run pretty run fast

a blog about running fast with style


about run pretty run fast

Welcome to run pretty run fast, I should probably just call this blog run fast because I mostly write about my training and racing but let’s be honest I like to run with style and it’s one of the many reason’s I run for Oiselle.

I started this blog because I like running and apparently I also like writing about it.  I’m also really fond of run-on sentences and comma splices so I apologize in advance, oh yeah and I’m not the most punctual blogger.  (I know… I sound awesome).

    You have a really interesting story there! I very much enjoy running but I’ve never worried too much about speed. But the more races I do – the more I want to feel challenged. So I’m excited to learn from you and pick up some pointers on how to take my speed up a notch. Thanks!

      Thank you! I’m excited for your running journey! I took several years off of running fast and it’s been nice to get back to the track… there’s just something about pushing yourself faster than you’ve run before that’s exciting and rewarding! Good luck to you on your journey!

    I always get pumped up when I find running blogs who like speed workouts equally if not more than distance runs. After graduation its just hard to find time for speed workouts and good track meets 😦 I love the track

      I so agree! Sometimes I think I’m the only one that likes a track workout! I walked away from the track for years after college but then connected with a few amazing group in Seattle. I think I’m running harder workouts now than I did in college. Our group has a great mix of people still racing indoor and outdoor track meets to the marathon. Having other people around make a huge difference!

  5. Hello Robyn,
    Just a quick email to ask if you would be interested in a ‘mutual’ following on twitter. I am currently following you now and am awaiting for your follow-back. (#FYI I do RT’s ‘anytime’ for all #Triathletes #Cyclists #UltraRunners #Marathoners #FitnessProfessionals who follow me on Twitter and have something important they want mentioned for support…)

    All the very best for 2013 & beyond Robyn. Look forward to hearing from you…

    Hi there – I had to leave a comment after reading your “about” page because I am the same way with fashion and running – I spend far too much money on running clothes and not nearly the same on regular clothes – although, I love to get all dressed up. We are on the same team for HTC, so I though I would say hello – love the blog – love that you love to run fashionably;-) Looking forward to meeting you!
