I’ve haven’t made it a secret that I do freelance work (wanna work with me check-out my sponsor page) Anyway, I realized that I’m pretty horrible at sharing those articles with y’all here. Obviously I write exclusive content for their websites so I won’t repost them here but I can link to them, duh Kelsey!
The One that started it all: Reasons to Date a Girl Who Runs
This wasn’t actually a freelance article but since writing it last year has become my second most popular article and has been featured on many other websites. (Including RunHaven below)
I started writing for RunHaven right around the time I decided to take a break from running for arthritic-knee purposes. Ironic I know…. Since then, I’ve amassed an entire archive just for myself. I’m pretty proud of it. I think I’v written only two serious articles for them with the rest being humorous. hey, what did you expect from me?
After the popularity of my debut article (date a girl) I obviously followed up with a Reasons to Date a Guy Who Runs. What kind of writer do you think I am!
Here are a few of my other favorites: (in no particular order)
>> Run Like You’re in the Hunger Games – I designed my own themed race for the Hunger Games. If you’d like to run with this idea I only ask you give me some kind of kicback 😉
>> Which Disney Princesses Would Be the Best Runners? For some reason all of humanity is obsessed with these ladies, but most especially runners so I of course had to write this. All opinions are welcome, besides wanting to be a mermaid growing up I wasn’t too fascinated with princesses so I’m clearly an expert.
>> Absolutely Absurd Alternatives to Running Shoes. All these shoes have actually been worn in a race…..read it if you don’t believe me.
>> Will Run for Brunch. Brunch plus running…there’s an actual club coming to a city near you…
>> 7 Running Costumes That Require Minimal Effort for Maximal Fun. This one even features one of my favorite photos from my last Ragnar Relay race with all my buds. We were all superheros that year.
>> 5 Gifts You Should Absolutely NOT Give a Runner. I wrote this for Christmas but it applies to any situation you’re looking for a gift for your runner. Read this before purchasing….
>> The Different Types of Runners Part One & Part Two. Being the Type A person I sometimes am, I like to categorize everything. I can put a label on just about anything much to the dismay of every guy I’ve ever dated/talked to/flirted with #labelmaker Not even sorry about it.
I’ve written plenty more for RunHaven as well as the University of Kentucky faculty Health and Wellness monthly newsletter. Those ones are obviously fact-based and researched heavily, which is why I also have a blog so I can publish as many non-researched based entirely in my opinion kind of things….life is all about balance 😉
And because what kind of writer employee person would i be without plugging all their social media channels as well. They actually do publish really helpful articles on nutrition, gear, and training as well. I’m the comedic relief I suppose….at least I laugh and they haven’t turned me away yet so that’s a good sign.
I hope you enjoy my bit’o freelance work! Which one was your favorite?
Ok fine, real question not fishing for compliments, do you do any freelance work I should check out?
