TISH HAMILTON started her career in journalism answering phones for the publishers of Muppet and Barbie magazines. She then worked for nearly a decade at Rolling Stone, as a copy-editor, line editor, and managing editor, and ran her first marathon. She spent a few years at Outside magazine, the New York Daily News, and Sports Illustrated for Women and ran many more marathons. Today she feels lucky to combine her professional experience with her personal passion at Runner's World, where she has been executive editor since 2003. Her essays have been included in Woman's Best Friend: Dogs and Tales From Another Mother Runner. She lives in Bernardsville, New Jersey, with her 10-year-old daughter and two small dogs. She has run 48 marathons and the misleadingly named Comrades Marathon in South Africa, which is actually 56 miles.
