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 match.com 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.

I'll continue my March trip .......w/ my MN friends, Christie and John.

March 21, Tuesday: Christie's 'bucket list' was to watch a sunrise at the Grand Canyon. John wanted to join as well. So we got up early and drove to the visitor center. There were alot of other tourists who had the same thought. It was pretty chilly at first so we walked the paved rim trail to stay warm. Glad I brought my hot tea. We found a good place and watched the sun rise over the canyon ...........irritated that some tourists were talking LOUD!! So I whispered "shhhhh"..... they got the point. We took photos and videos as long as we could, and of each other too. It was mesmerizing and absolutely phenomenal and just a sense of gratefulness to be a witness. Very emotional for many as each reflects on very cherished moments in their lives ....so far, happy or sad. It still amazes me that I have this as 'my backyard.'
We drove back to hotel, packed and ate breakfast. I took them to other viewpoints on the way out of the east entrance, and stopped for about an hour at Cameron at a popular tourist stop that has southwest stuff and also has a restaurant. We had bought some food/drinks at a Whole Foods in Flagstaff before we left for Grand Canyon so we didn't need to have lunch.

After stop at Cameron. We drove to Monument Valley, UT. Christie has a wooden coat rack at her home that says "I just felt like running" and I wanted to add a photo of her running on the road w/ Monument Valley in the background (just like Forrest Gump). That's the ONLY reason I took them to MV!! 🙂 It was fun!!

After that, we went onto Chinle, AZ to experience Canyon de Chelly (pronounced "Shay). We stayed at the hotel at the mouth of the canyon. After checking in, I took them to the farthest viewpoint before sunset. It's called Spider Rock.

The next morning, we hiked down to White House ruins, about 3 miles roundtrip. We were the early ones to hike. With all the rainstorms, the river that winds through the canyon was full. It's been a long time since I've seen that. When we got to the bottom, the water had overflowed and we had to cross a small part of the overflowed area (only ankle high) before reaching a small bridge to cross the actual river.

It was a great way to greet the day, the hike was invigorating! We checked out of the hotel and headed towards Winslow, AZ.

So I was SHOCKED that John never heard of the Eagles and one of their songs, "Take it Easy," which is famous for the lyrics "standing on the corner of Winslow, AZ" ...........REALLY?!?
We spent about an hour taking photos and checking out the souvenir stores, and listening to the Eagles. I LOVE that band!! Helped me make through 4 boring years of high school, haha!!

After Winslow, we headed home to Flagstaff. Ate downtown to celebrate our trip!! We decided to hike Mt. Eldon nearby the next morning if weather cooperates. There is a chance of snow/sleet/wind. This is what we woke up to and decided to make the best of it by taking them to Snow Bowl ski resort!! 9500 feet.
