In 2007, my brother, Brian finally convinced me to post on a blog he had begun for me, RunBlogRun. He had tried to get me excited in 2006, but, alas, I was a bit of a Luddite (look it up). RunBlogRun changed my life. Within 2 years, I understood what Brian was saying: the blog will be your major communication tool. In 2014-2016, as I suspended my print publications, RunBlogRun continued to grow, and our daily content supported my digital titles. As we developed our live coverage of events, and the video impact on our sites (we partnered with The Shoe Addicts in 2010, as our digital partners).

Advertising had been our support vehicle for three plus decades with our print, and two decades on digital. Advertising is in a crisis, and as the evolution and revolution takes place, we want to find ways to continue to support the athletic community. As we continue to grow and evolve, we see that we need other forms of support. Your support via Patreon means we can provide more coverage of athletes, events, coaches, and the behind the scenes content that you have come to expect from RunBlogRun.

In 2019, we have big plans, more live events, more video, more audio, more podcasts, more challenging the status quo. For that, we need your help. Please check out our Patreon site: For the price of one coffee a month, you can support RunBlogRun!

We have already loaded 3 of our 14 part series on the Diamond League. Watch for 1-2 podcasts a week on topics not seen or heard on RunBlogRun. Also note, as I figure out how to actually make it work, you will hear some hidden works from nearly 40 years of audio archives, including Emil Zatopek, Bob Mathias, Milt Campbell, and some from the modern era, such as Vashti Cunningham, Kevin Mayer and Eliud Kipchoge.
