Tish Hamilton

Executive Editor

Runner's World

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. She served for a decade as an adjunct associate professor for New York University’s Masters of Publishing program. 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 11-year-old daughter and two small, crazy dogs. She has run 49 marathons and the misleadingly named Comrades Marathon in South Africa, which is actually 56 miles.
