After our first 10K at the Haunted Hustle in Middleton, WI.

What is Technically Running?

Technically Running started in November 2011 as a way for us, founders Meagan and Steve, to stay motivated and get in shape for our wedding in May 2012. We were fairly new to running, having only started in June 2011, but quickly fell in love with it after putting on our first pair of Vibram FiveFingers a few weeks into our running career. In addition to our interest in minimalist shoes, we found that we also enjoy testing out new gear and gadgets. So, Technically Running was born as a way to motivate ourselves by sharing our reviews of shoes and running-related products, and running experiences, with you! Of course, what started as a motivational tool has grown into so much more. More than 4 years, several 5k’s/10k’s/half-marathons, and a full marathon later, running, and blogging about it, remains a vital part of our lives.

We chose the name Technically Running first and foremost to emphasize the “technical” aspect of some of the gizmos we plan to test out and review. Additionally, the name Technically Running points out that while the website is technically about running, we will also be sharing our thoughts regarding our fitness journey in general. Some of the products we will highlight and subjects we plan to address may not always be specific to running. Ultimately, we hope our site will cater to a wide range of people, from long-term runners, to beginners, to people with just a general interest in fitness.

Meet the TR Crew!

When we started Technically Running, it was just the two of us (Meagan and Steve) writing. Now, we have grown to a team of six writers. These writers cover a wide range of fitness levels, from beginning runners to an Ironman-in-Training. You can learn more about them below!

[Profiles coming soon!]
