Martini Fridays: Across the Pond

Martini Fridays: Across the Pond

As I type this, I’m looking out of my Inn window at a very small slice of Cambridge. It’s dead charming. I keep waiting for Mary Poppins to float by.

The morning before I left New York, I managed to work in a ten-mile run. Technically, it should have been 13 miles but I couldn’t quite push myself that far because a) it seemed like a bad idea to be completely spent before a seven hour flight and the resulting jet lag, b) I needed the extra time to pack, and c) I just didn’t feel like it. Ten is better than nothing. I just have to keep telling myself that.

The run itself was lovely and, at times, bordered on good…

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Mandy Mitroff

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Mandy Mitroff

I started running 15 years ago, when a co-worker was training for a marathon with Team-In-Training. As I listened to her tales of lost toenails and achy calves, the all-too-familiar “well, if she can do it” sentiment spoke to my brain. And so I started running and haven’t stopped since.

It started with 5Ks and then 10Ks. It quickly moved up to half-marathons. And then to full marathons.

I have since run 13 marathons in places like Pocatello, Idaho with its 5-pound bag of potatoes goodie bag. And the Black Hills of South Dakota, where I was among 99 other ladies slowly making our way down a winding highway…

Hump Day Running Giveaway: Saucony Runderpants and Sports Bra

Hump Day Running Giveaway: Saucony Runderpants and Sports Bra

For me, the two “things” I want most from a best running friend (BRF) is laughter and support–and my BRF, Molly, offers them both in spades. Whether I’m worried about my father’s health (and longevity) after he suffered a head trauma last year or fretting about my son’s firecracker-like temper, I know as surely as I will sweat on our runs, Molly will empathetically listen and offer solace.

Molly also cracks me up, such as the time she tossed out the little-heard phrase, “ne’er-do-well” as we were chugging up a hill (uh, maybe you had to be there for that one…) or when she hip checks me to nab a glinting coin off the pavement…

Follow This Mother!

Melissa Fenton, a self-described cookbook hoarder, mother of four boys, and BAMR who started running “to beat depression,” is gearing up for the 2015 Goofy Challenge at Disney World, in which she’ll run both the half and full marathon. Melissa, of Dade City, Fla., dreams of a European run, is looking forward to experiencing her best mile ever, and knows her donuts.
Best recent run: It’s been a brutally hot summer here in Florida. With daily 100% humidity and temps in the 90s, at this point if I come home still breathing and upright it’s my best run.
An unconditional gift: Running is the perfect gift giver, as it always inherently knows what you need during the different seasons of your life…

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Katie Garrett

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Katie Garrett

December 28, 2012 marks my most important mile. As a mother runner, each mile of pregnancy is a mile shared with my child. I ran all through my first two pregnancies and loved it. As I was training for my first marathon, I was excited to discover I once again had a running buddy on board. With the go ahead from my midwife, I carefully continued my runs and anticipated crossing the finish line for two.

On Dec. 27, 14 days before the race, we found out that our baby no longer had a heartbeat. While I was comforted that my midwife did not believe my running (or anything else I had done/not done) had caused the miscarriage, I was still devastated…
