Mammoth Lakes, California, 2010: Dimity (yellow) and Sarah flank (read: tower over!) two-time Olympian Deena Kastor.

Dimity and Sarah are delighted to be joined by Deena Kastor, a mother runner who wears myriad hats, including 2004 Olympics bronze medalist in the marathon, American women’s record holder in the marathon (2:19:36), avid cook/baker, and mother of a pre-school daughter. Deena talked with the gals a week before she headed to New York City to run 26.2 miles through the five boroughs, site of her first marathon more than a decade ago. Deena shares tips for success running NYC Marathon. Proving she’s getting #FasterAsaMasters, Deena talks through her run at the Rock ‘N’ Roll Philadelphia half-marathon, in which she set a new World Masters Half-Marathon record (1:09:39) by 20 seconds. Thanks to questions from the mother runner tribe on Facebook, Deena shares what drives her to keep setting—and exceeding—goals, and how she and her husband are helping make their southern California mountain town of Mammoth Lakes a mecca for runners of all abilities.

This hour-long podcast is sure to inspire and motivate. But first it’ll make listeners laugh with Sarah sharing a recent candid conversation she had with her curious 9-year-old twins.
