There’s no best month for writing a book, but November is pretty popular. After the well-known National Novel Writing Month “write 50,000 words of your book” challenge, many authors quickly edit and start submitting their manuscript to editors. That’s a mistake. It takes much longer than a few months to revise and edit a book.
But today, we’re talking about running. Just as there’s no best month for writing, there’s also no best month for running. However, there are a few popular months for running a half marathon race distance.
Least Popular Months for Running
Runners run (and race) in all kinds of weather, seasons, and terrain. But according to Sports Illustrated, the worst two months for racing are December and January. Here’s why:
Why use a running app? Because it’s a fun, easy way to store info about your runs! The number one question I get asked about running is, “What app do you use?”
I used to answer, “Runtastic”, but since Adidas took over that app, it is now called Adidas Running. I love it mostly because it tracks my runs, which is just one reason to use a running app. Here are 5 reasons to use a running app, along with a recommendation for each one.
Running Apps with Training Plans
One reason runners like to use a running app is to have access to training plans or running workouts. A running app with this feature allows you to train for an upcoming race or to mix up your workout regimen without having to search all over the internet for new ideas.
One good running app that offers training plans is Runna. With the Writers Who Run App, you’ll get access to training plans AND running workouts. Join the waitlist today.

Since 2010, I have been blogging over at www.christiewrightwild.blogspot.com. It started out as a personal journal for my writing. It has morphed several times over the years focusing on different things such as picture books, websites for authors, and of course my own publication journey.
It's time for Writers Who Run to get its own blog. So here we are! Every Monday, a new blog post will be published. Topics will always be focused on our four pillars for content.
Which pillar are you most excited to learn more about? Let us know over on the Writers Who Run Facebook page.
