Forums: Connect with Another Mother Runner

A huge, sweaty welcome to the another mother runner forums, an exclusive but inclusive—that makes sense, right?—place to connect, chat, ask, analyze, and dream big with other runners. The beauty of this running forum is that, unlike our Facebook page, the status updates don’t float by in less than a day. Here they are, accessible whenever you need the 411.

Anything is game here: questions about training, nutrition, sports bras, leaking on the run, whatever. Two categories we think are pretty cool: a for mother runners, where you can find a BRF (best running friend) and free gear swap, a place to find a home for your newish gear you never use. (The recipient pays only for shipping; thank you in advance for respecting this rule.)

So whatever you've got—IT band problems; stroller questions; a picture-perfect race; shoe issues—lay it on the collective us. If you'd like to nominate a category we forgot, email us at runmother [at] gmail [dot] com. We're all here to push each other across the finish line again and again.

Post How to run midday
on: January 7, 2014, 15:51

I often read about other runners fitting their training runs in during the day, but I can't quite figure out the logistics of that. I need practical advice on getting in the midday run. I work in an office which is a 30 minute commute from home and my gym. There is no locker room in my workplace. Dress is business casual and I just can't fathom putting my work clothes back on my sweaty body post-run and getting through the afternoon with just a fresh swipe of deodorant. How do other people manage the lunch time run?

People who don't have access to a shower can use baby wipes, or you can wet a washcloth from home and put a couple of drops of body wash on it and stick it in a Ziploc bag. Take a towel to towel off the sweat. It helps if you don't wear full makeup, and have a no-fuss hairstyle - say that day you tie it back/put it in a bun. Powder can help if you need to get drier. Deodorant. I like to take a fresh pair of panties. If your bathroom has a forced-air hand dryer with a movable nozzle you can use that to dry other parts of you, or your hair.
