Round one of California is in the bag: we had a BAMR Ball in Carlsbad at Road Runner Sports. Got us totally pumped up for the 11 other AMR parties we are planning for the rest of 2014. I'm going to lay out our party schedule (and a few expos) as best we know it now, realizing that things may change slightly as we solidify dates and work around soccer tournaments and the like...
February 19: AMR Party in Orlando, FL at Fit2Run. RSVP Here.
February 20-22: Princess Half-Marathon Expo at Disney World. We'll be speaking at the expo all three days—times TBD—and Dimity is running the Glass Slipper Challenge (10K + 13.1), while Sarah is graciously letting Dimity nap after running the 10K, and is "only" running the half-marathon. I'm thinking I'm going to take the 10K as a really non-ambitious, soak-it-up run, so if anybody wants to join me for 6.2 miles of pictures and laughs, email runmother [at] gmail [dot] com and we'll set up a meeting spot.
February 27: AMR Party in Memphis, TN, which is fully booked. (Sorry!)
February 28-March 1: As part of the Little Rock Marathon expo, we'll be speaking at the Capital Hotel (Runner’s World Bart Yasso is the other headline speaker). Times TBD, but first 25 women that attend our talk on each day get the same loaded swag bags we give away at our parties. If you'll be at the marathon and want us to email you the times we'll be talking so you can be sure to attend, please sign up on this form.

This isn't our whole 2014 schedule; we're also headed to Rock 'n' Roll Denver, Rock 'n' Roll Portland, other Happy Girls races , plus we'll have AMR ambassadors at a few races and we're putting together our second annual Ultimate Mother Showdown Relay contest...stay tuned!
