Helping women become more well-rounded runners.

Running with Roots - Trail Running Blog for Women

Hi there! and welcome to

Running with Roots

I’m so glad you stopped by!

I’m Erin, a recreational runner who loves Jesus.  I have a passion for encouraging other women, both in life and on their running journeys.

My mission here at Running with Roots is to help women become more well-rounded runners.  I strive to do that through sharing advice, giving encouragement, and inspiring you to get outside and get moving.

Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is in the Lord. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.

Jeremiah 17:7-8
