What’s The Kick?

For a while now, I’ve wanted to read a newsletter that feels like the best conversations I’ve had with my friends and training partners during a long run. There’s a lot of running media out there (some of it is great, and some of it... we’d be better off without), but I haven’t found that yet. I started this project at the end of 2018 in an attempt to fill a bit of that void. “For women” doesn’t mean that I only cover female runners, but that is definitely a focus. If you’re not a woman and you end up loving this newsletter, that’s great too. 

A tiny bit about me

My name is Molly Mirhashem, and I’ve been running since elementary school, when I first found out that it counted as a sport. I eventually ran track and cross country at Tufts University, and in the years since I graduated I’ve slowly (and at first, quite reluctantly) worked my way up to marathons. I also work as the digital deputy editor at Outside magazine—where I edit most of our running coverage, among many other things.
