Amy DeKorse, 39, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when her daughter Vivian, now 4, was a baby. But this New Haven, MI, half-marathon mother runner finds strength in running. “I try to be smart about it. I have physical therapy to ensure proper stretching and strengthening, as well as having all my doctors aware of my training intentions and how to keep me doing it.” 

Best recent run: I love running, but ”training” aspects can get me a little frustrated, though. For example, I don’t really lose myself in speed workouts or hill-climbing like a good ol’ long run. BUT, last week, while forcing myself to do 8x400s right in my own neighborhood, I realized after how great I felt! Counting down the segments, challenging myself to keep pace, and SURVIVING helped in creating a newfound respect for this part of training!

Powerful Athlete: For as long as I can remember, I’ve always admired the female athlete…

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Erin VanLaningham

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Erin VanLaningham

I handed the pine cone to my youngest son. He turned and grinned at me, face flushed. Then, his older brother ran past us to take the pine cone, picking up the pace. We were running the first Pine Cone Relay, a game we made up on our first family run.

Every summer we spend time at my parents’ cabin on a lake in Northern Wisconsin — swimming, kayaking, and having campfires. This summer was a bit different as I unlocked the door, quickly lighting the fire to cut through the cold front that had hit in July. I was fresh off a divorce and this was the first family vacation I was embarking on with the boys alone…

#120: Lady Doc: An OB/GYN Gives Advice for Active Moms [Rerun]

[Note: We're hard at work on our third book this summer, so today's podcast has previously aired. Don't worry - we'll be back next week with a new show!]

Sarah and Dimity talk with Dr. Amanda Hurtubise, an OB/GYN in Port Huron, Michigan, who they found through her informed, insightful comments on their Facebook page, about health advice for active moms. This mom of three and beginning-again runner quickly dubs this show about “the fallout of running,” addressing TMI topics like vaginal prolapse, urinary incontinence, and risk of infection from hanging out in sweaty workout wear. The good doctor also talks about running during pregnancy…

Orange, Lemonade, Tri-Berry, Orange, Lemonade, Tri-Berry: Class, in this  sequence, what flavor Nuun Active comes next?

Four Winners of Nuun

My run last Saturday was a toughie. Fifteen hot solo miles with mile 6 and 10 at race pace, and the rest of run at faster than my usual long-run speed. I intended to dive into more details about this run…but I’m going to ‘fess up that I forgot to fully write this post, so let’s just get to the point of this post!

Here are the four winners, who will each receive two tubes each of Nuun Active, Nuun Energy, and Nuun All Day + a Nuun bottle, along with each winner’s fave flave of Nuun:

Karisa: “Cherry Limeaid for a morning run – my favorite.”

Leilani: “Just recently got into Nuun, thanks to you lovelies…

Martini Fridays: Let’s Focus on the Positive!

Three weeks into 13.FUN and regular updates on Martini Fridays. In this one, we learn a little about Adrienne’s grocery store background, among other important things.  

Last week marked my first Eminem run of this training cycle. It’s been at least three months since I’ve done 8 miles and, given how lousy my last 6-miler was, my hopes were not high. Perhaps it was simply a result of low expectations, but the Eminem was fine. Kinda good, even.

Which is one of the facts about running that always humbles/gratifies me: things change. A good six miles one day doesn’t mean they’ll be good the next…
