Discover stories for your run

Meet the staff who make the blog run — pun intended.

Get to know some of the great minds behind the Run Happy Blog.


Senior Writer & Editor

Ethan would rather run a hundred hills than embark on any sort of long run. Distance may not be his jam, but he does enjoy speed workouts to keep his footwork right for competitive tennis. When he's not telling stories about the running community or the latest Brooks gear on the Run Happy Blog, Ethan spends his time finding adventure with his family and experimenting in the kitchen.

Ethan recommends checking out this article about mental health and running.


Editorial Specialist

Neely is Brooks' editorial specialist who oversees the curation and shaping of stories for the Run Happy blog. She has been an avid jogger for 15 years, and has a niche expertise in the Seattle ice cream scene.
