This page is long overdue for an update, but in short, the morning shakeout is a weekly email newsletter for eclectically minded folks who appreciate expert analysis and insightful, entertaining commentary on running, writing, media and other worthwhile topics. It’s written, edited and published on Tuesday mornings* by me, Mario Fraioli.

*While skipping a morning shakeout is akin to committing the eighth deadly sin, putting it off until later in the day is occasionally warranted under certain forgivable circumstances.


Please send your silly questions, snarky comments, dopey concerns, unsolicited inquiries, high praise or general disdain regarding the morning shakeout here. Kindly keep any other bullshit to yourself. 

If you’re interested in sponsoring the morning shakeout, check out this page for details or send me an email.

the morning shakeout—a weekly email newsletter written, edited and published on Tuesday mornings by me, Mario Fraioli—takes your privacy very seriously. I will never share, sell, or otherwise do anything inappropriate with your email address. You will only be sent the newsletter that you subscribed to on the homepage, although I may send the mailing list additional emails outside the realm of normal delivery to announce important news or address any pressing issues relevant to subscribers.

the morning shakeout only collects and holds your email address in order to send you the information that you have requested. You can unsubscribe at any time (and for any reason) quickly and easily by clicking the link in the footer of any email you’ve received from the morning shakeout, or by sending an email here.
