In Her Shoes: Running Laps with Pheidippides

In Her Shoes: Running Laps with Pheidippides

I am visiting Athens for my job with a pharmaceutical company, and I need to run 12 miles or something that day. I ask the concierge for some advice. He says, “Oh! You could incorporate the original Olympic stadium.”

I start by running around the Acropolis, then I go to the stadium and pay a little money enter. Most people don’t come to run on the track, but it’s allowed. Usually visitors rent the headphones and they take the standard tour; I am the only one running that day.

The track is like a regular track, a really nice cushy track, which wasn’t what I expected. I was thinking it might be ancient cinders…

Throwback Thursday: Staying on the Clean Eating Track

Throwback Thursday: Staying on the Clean Eating Track

 

I—Dimity—just reread this post after coming off a week of Midwest AMR-a-palooza, and it still resonates with me like it did in October 2012: avocados, almonds, always paying attention to what I eat.

After our whirlwind, awesome trip to Chicago, where we had a rockin’ house party in Glen Ellyn, and to Fontana, Wisconsin, for ZOOMA Great Lakes, where we connected with so many great BAMRs, I came home kind of depleted. I’ve done this–this squeezing a week’s worth of activities into 72 hours–enough times this year to realize that it takes me at least 3 more days to feel like myself…

Take It From a Mother: Do You Have a Mantra?

Introducing Our 2015 Saucony #26Strong Cadet

Introducing Our 2015 Saucony #26Strong Cadet

We are pleased to be involved again in the Saucony #26Strong program, in which running mentors/coaches are paired with a “cadet” to be trained for her first marathon. Dimity didn’t sign on this year due to her plantar injury, but I–Sarah–jumped on board the #26Strong bandwagon a mere two weeks before I fractured two bones in my ankle. I am still going to coach my Portland-based cadet, Laura Baughman, to the Chicago Marathon, and I plan to cheer her along the course on October 11. If you’re taking on 26.2 this fall, join us in the AMR #FindYourStrong Marathon Challenge. Laura is part of the Challenge, and here’s her backstory…

Tish reading at NJ party

#162: Tales from Another Mother Essayist (and Runner’s World Exec Editor) Tish Hamilton

Tish Hamilton, the executive editor of Runner’s World, once again joins Sarah and Dimity for a chat. This mother runner of one opines about the wonders of running friends and how hers got her through an unexpected divorce. After reading an excerpt of her brilliant essay in Tales from Another Mother, Tish and the ladies explore various ways to find a BRF. The gals were all pleased no mice were harmed for the recording of this podcast, which makes sense since Tish tells a tale proving she’s most definitely not a Boston Marathon “squeaker” anymore!

*If you’re digging our podcasts, we’d be super-grateful if you’d take a minute (because we *know* you have so many to spare!) to write a review on iTunes…
