I’ll Have Another Episode 26: Dorothy Beal
Dorothy is a runner (who loves the marathon!), a mom and the writer behind the blog Mile-Posts. She has run 31 marathons- taking her time from a 4:20 to a 3:11 – say what?!
Dorothy’s writing has also been featured in: Runner’s World Magazine, Fitness Magazine, Competitor Magazine, Run Washington Magazine, and Women’s Running Magazine. I’m a Rock N Roll Marathon, Garmin, Brooks Run Happy, Sparkly Soul, and Nancy Rose Performance Ambassador!
She is a full time momma to Chloe, Miles and Colton and also does a lot of free lance writing, blogging, social media and speaking at race expos and events around around the country, selling I Run This Body t-shirts.
I had a lot of fun getting to know Dorothy- we’ve been following each other for quite some time on social media, but I had never talked to her face to face and you know that has to be one of my favorite things ever about this podcast. Though I don’t see most of the people I interview in person, seeing them on skype makes it feel like we’ve really just sat down for a cup of coffee or wine.
In this episode, we talk about how she turned her blog into a business and what that has looked like over the years. We talk about mom stuff, running stuff and even some not so easy stuff like dealing with on-line scrutiny you encounter when you put yourself out there. We of course get into some fun stuff Dorothy is loving and what current shows she’s into.
