About Revel Sports: Your Fitness and Running Community

Welcome to Revel Sports, the blog dedicated to helping you beat your personal best, one stride at a time.

Our team is made up of running enthusiasts, fitness aficionados, and personal development junkies who have come together to share our collective knowledge, experience, and passion for living an active, goal-oriented lifestyle.

Running captivates us on multiple levels.

It challenges our bodies, strengthens our minds, feeds our souls. With every stride, we push through physical barriers, and as we clock up the miles, we gain mental resilience and a sense of accomplishment that is unparalleled.

Running has the power to change lives for the better.

Our aim is to push you along in that journey.

Embracing The Running Lifestyle

Inspiration for runners

At Revel Sports, we don’t just dabble in running. It’s our passion, our obsession, and the beating heart of our community. To us, running isn’t just a hobby, it’s a way of life that has brought us together and forged unbreakable bonds.

It’s through the shared experiences of conquering long distances, enduring the elements, and supporting each other through both triumphs and setbacks that we’ve come to appreciate the true spirit of camaraderie.

The running community is unlike any other. It’s a brotherhood, a sisterhood, and a testament to the power of human connection.

Whether you’re a seasoned marathoner or just starting to explore the joys of running, we want to help you on your journey!

The Pursuit of Excellence

Our fascination with performance optimization goes hand-in-hand with our love for running. We constantly seek new ways to push our limits, refine our techniques, and set new personal records. The thrill of achieving a new personal best or executing a flawless race strategy fuels our passion for continuous improvement.

At Revel Sports, we’re all about sharing the knowledge we’ve gained in our quest for peak performance. Our blog is a treasure trove of tips, training drills, and hacks designed to help you unlock your full potential. Whether you’re a dedicated runner, a multisport athlete, or simply someone looking to lead an active, healthy life, we’ve got something for you.

One of our passions – and the reason we banded together to launch this site – is because we love the thrill of chasing performance gains.

Or performance hacking, if you will.

It’s addictive, isn’t it?

The thrill of a new personal best, the adrenaline of standing on the starting line and preparing a new strategy for a new race.

As much as we love taking part in the community, we’re intensely passionate about being the best we possibly can be when the starting gun (or whistle!) fires.

Our Contributors

We’re always looking for new contributors to share their running experiences.

Let’s take a closer look at the current team:

Alex is the editor at Revel Sports. It was his idea to take our post-club-run chats and build a website out of them. He is responsible for dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s when any of us have something to post. (Basically: it’s all his fault). A ferocious 5K powerhouse on his day, Alex is known for not understanding the meaning of the term ‘negative split‘.

Thalia started running during the the pandemic as a way of getting out of the house. The running bug bit, and now much of her life revolves around everything to do with running - videos, podcasts, studies, books, articles, and interviews. She's also done several courses on running nutrition and mechanics to aid in her training and advising others.

Esme is a frequent contributor who manages to stay much more neutral on these pages than she ever manages after a glass of wine at club night. She is a 5K-10K specialist, albeit one with over twenty half-marathons under her belt. Esme divides her time between a busy career, two kids, yoga, pilates AND a busy race schedule.

Michael is a frequent contributor, which is a miracle to us as he quite literally runs for days with the rest of his time. An ultra marathon specialist, Mike is the kind of guy who posts a 30K Morning Run on Strava before we’ve had our breakfast and prefixes it with the smart-assery: “Guess I wasn’t feeling it today.” He runs like he writes: slow with bits flying everywhere.
