Run Oregon Community Bloggers

Run Oregon “runs” on community bloggers.

Our community bloggers volunteer their time and running experience to share news and information with other runners. Therefore, we love them!

Our admins:

Nikki Mueller – Nikki is an Oregon native who hated running until she was nearly 30 years old and decided it was time to get off the couch and get out the door. She ran her first marathon in 2006 and has never looked back. She is the mother of two very active sons (another great reason to be a runner!) a fitness instructor, and a running coach. She’s also active on the school board at her son’s school, loves writing and drawing (when she has time which is NEVER) and enjoys beer, chocolate, and life’s other small pleasures when she’s not out on the road or a trail somewhere.

Matt Rasmussen lives in Keizer, Ore. with his wife and two daughters. He enjoys watching the Olympics, sampling craft beers, and all things Canada (he was born there). Matt was raised as a baseball player and officially transitioned over to running in 2010. Matt joined the Run Oregon team in October 2011, and since then he has spearheaded the blog’s efforts to cover product reviews, news about businesses related to running, and running events in the Willamette Valley.

Our regular bloggers:

Meg Roberts – Meg joined a gym in February 2010, after a “Come to Jesus” moment with the scale in the middle of the night.  With some friends encouragement, she participated in her first 5K that summer (Starlight Run), first 10K that fall (Race for the Cure), and first half marathon a year later (Helvetia Half).  Now with 15 marathons (and counting), it is still about the  challenge of lining up at a starting line.  When she is not running, Meg works in higher education and writes about running, social justice, theology, and eclectic stories from living in Portland (

Bobi Jo Ousnamer is one of those masochistic ultrarunners who likes to run far for no reason. It started innocent enough with training for a trail 10k, then a half marathon, then a challenging 25k. A few months later she ran her first 50k and her runner’s high was undeniable; the progress addicting; the capabilities of the body and mind truly astounding. In her normal human life, she works with kids and parents involved with the foster care system, is a novice rock climber, an avid Green Bay Packers fan, and a book worm.

Drew Roberts – Drew has been a runner for all of 12 years (since 2011) and has discovered the joy of ultra-marathons and all things trail running related. His favorite race fuel is coffee and bacon. He lives, runs and writes from his home in Central Oregon. Keeping him grounded is his amazing wife and 2 great kids.
