    No pressure or anything, though.

Martini Fridays: even the best of plans aren’t foolproof

Martini Fridays: even the best of plans aren’t foolproof

This training cycle has not gone as planned.

I’ve tried to keep this running engine on its proverbial tracks. I really, really have. Two weekends ago, I went for a 10-mile run, just like I was supposed to. The morning was Goldilocks perfect: not too hot and not too cold. Just windy enough, with a few gusts to keep it interesting. I was at just the point in my audiobook that I wanted to keep running so that I can hear what happens next. This long run that more than made up for the demoralizing one from the previous week.

Heck, I’d even been hitting my tempo run goals — and discovered that I actually like tempo runs, which can only mean that I ought to pick up the pace…

Hump Day Giveaway: ISO Mother Runner Help, Please

Back in the day, when we wrote Run Like a Mother, we has no clue that one yellow book would launch Another Mother Runner, a place where female runners of all levels can celebrate muscular legs and cry over fractured bones; send inspiration and support—and grab some when they need it; and connect in the knowledge that they’re nestled in a community of like-minded, funny, honest, strong women.

And we’re in the midst of putting together our biggest year yet. 

Yep, we’re planning a nationwide book tour for Tales From Another Mother Runner, the first AMR Retreat(s), three AMR Challenges and a bunch of other good stuff…

How To Handle Stress, Plus a Gift Basket Giveaway

How To Handle Stress, Plus a Gift Basket Giveaway

Thanks to an ice bath (brrrrr!!) followed by several applications of Hyland’s Muscle Therapy with Arnica, my legs felt surprisingly fresh after a recent demanding 19-miler. (Wait, is it redundant to say a nearly 20-mile run is “demanding”?! What I mean is it had race pace and other speed bursts added into it, like walnuts studded in banana muffins.)

My shoulders and upper back weren’t as content: That upper region of my back threaten to seize whenever I bent my head to read Farmer Boy to my twins or turned to, “look at me!” when one of them danced with our cat or showcased their new cross-country jerseys…

Passing the Ragnar Relay Baton: DC to Napa Valley

Passing the Ragnar Relay Baton: DC to Napa Valley

On Friday morning, 12 badass mother runners will take off on the adventure of a lifetime as we take on Ragnar Relay Napa Valley; together, we’ll cover 205 miles, sleep probably 24 hours combined, as we laugh, run, laugh, run, laugh, run. Hoping Sarah doesn’t get recognized in the shower again, and I—Dimity—am relieved to report that my three legs total 14 miles, total. Should be…easier than last year, when my first leg was pretty much straight up on a dusty gravel road for 7 or so miles.

Ragnar is the kind of race where experience definitely helps, which is where the teams that rocked Ragnar DC last year come in…
