A new gig!

Ok, remember when I was interviewed a few weeks ago?  Well, that interview was part of the column The Extreme Self, which is part of True/Slant, an “original content news network.”  The way it works is True/Slant organizes a group of contributors who write news-opinion pieces for them.  It’s pretty much a decentralized newspaper, without the paper.  It’s not quite blogging; I’m told that writing about what you ate for breakfast doesn’t fly in the T/S world.

Well, guess who the newest contributors for True/Slant are?   Megan from Runner’s Kitchen and I!  They’ve brought us on board to write a joint column called Running Shorts.  (Get it?) It’s going to be our take on all sorts of running and training topics.  Product, article, and book reviews, responses to running news and trends, and whatever else we think of.  Really we aren’t sure what direction it will take us, but it should be interesting.  And it’s a damn good thing I’m starting to really like running!

Check out our first piece, a little Q&A we did for us to get to know each other and readers to get to know us.  And please, leave a comment, “follow” us (it’s not Twitter, I promise), and feel free to give me some feedback and suggestions for what you’d like to see on Running Shorts!
