A long time ago, on this blog, I did a series of posts in which I interviewed runner girls (and sometimes boys) from different countries around the world. I was interested in what it was like to run in that country. What were the particular joys and challenges? How would runners handle the different weather conditions? What were the top brands for clothes, shoes, fuel? Where were the best places to run…that kind of thing.
I did 15 posts – you can find them here.
I really loved doing them and got great feedback about how much fun they were to read as well. I loved getting to know the different girls. I even got to meet Grace, who I interviewed about life in Singapore last week when she was in SF!!
I also felt that I was publishing something worthwhile, something useful to the running community, as opposed to ‘I went for a run, it was lovely‘ which is the kind of stuff I usually end up writing.
But in 2015, the interviews ground to a halt. They took a LOT of time to do – time to find the runner, to send the questions, to get the answers and the photos, sometimes to translate them, to write the post, send it to the interviewee to approve and finally to post. I went back to college in January and simply didn’t have the time to do this.
But I’d LOVE to get the series started again. I’d like to publish at least one interview every month from different countries around the world…and this is where YOU come in. If you’re reading this from a country that isn’t the US, or if you have runner girl friends in different countries around the world, PLEASE get in touch. I’d be so grateful!!! You (or she) don’t have to be fast or wear all the cool clothes – I’m looking for runners like you and me who just love running, who run a lot, who race regularly and who know a little about the running culture in that country.
I’m particularly looking for ladies from South America as I totally failed to get ANY interviews from that continent first time round.

Thank you so much in advance!!
