    Loud.

    I—Dimity—just found this post hidden away. I don't even remember writing it, but so little has changed. Except now my son has a keyboard.

In Her Shoes: Breaking Single Digits on a Run

In Her Shoes: Breaking Single Digits on a Run

One section Tales From Another Mother Runner is called In Her Shoes, which is first-person accounts of different running situations and tales. We love running stories as much as—or maybe more than?—running itself, but we had a surplus of In Her Shoes stories…if we put them all in the book, it would’ve been bigger than a dictionary. So we’re going to run these every other Friday for a while.

Kicking us off is Tina, who bit it big time on a training run and cracked her pinky. (Stupid sidewalk lips!)

After running with a friend for three or four miles, I had three or four more to cover solo…

Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday: Terzah Becker

Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday: Terzah Becker

 In less than 2 months, our third book, Tales From Another Mother Runner will be released…and the seams on our capris are popping, we’re so dang excited. The book is a truly celebration of this amazing, badass community: not only does it contain 22 essays from a range of talented writers and mother runners, it has miles of insight, advice, stories, and humor from hundreds of you. As we prepare to launch, we’re going to profile an essayist on Thursdays.

First up is Terzah Becker, a Boulder-based runner and mother of 8-year-old boy/girl twins. 

Running history: I’ve been a runner on and off since I was 12 years old, starting then because I didn’t like the adolescent chub I suddenly put on…

Day in the Life of Another Mother Runner: Angela Amick

Day in the Life of Another Mother Runner: Angela Amick

Even if it feels like the holidays were three years ago, they were actually more like three weeks ago, which is when Angela Amick (a.k.a. mommyangela3 on Instagram) document her #dayinthelifeofAMR: a day where we hand over our Instagram account to another mother runner and see what she’s up to. In Angela’s case, quite a bit: as a mom to three boys, one of whom has Down Syndrome, and an almost marathon finisher and a good little elf, she barely sat down on this Saturday. (Cheer her on this weekend, as she runs her first 26.2 at the Walt Disney World Marathon!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you’re interested in taking over our account for a day, we’d love to have you…

Bethany Takes on Boston: Let the Training Begin! (Kind of.)

Bethany Takes on Boston: Let the Training Begin! (Kind of.)

As Bethany Meyer starts her Boston Marathon training with some resolutions—which don’t really include running. To remind you, Bethany is documenting her training twice a month here on AMR, thanks to Stonyfield Organic Yogurt, who generously offered us a number for a mother runner in the Boston Marathon.

I stir cherries into my rolled oats. And proceed to choke down the first bite. Blech. Bland. I had hoped the cherries would sweeten the oatmeal, but no. The second bite doesn’t go down any easier than the first.

After two plus weeks of my kids on break and my husband home more than I’m used to, every ounce of me is yearning to get back to a routine…

The incredibly adorable coin purse Molly sewed and embroidered for me for Christmas.

Letting My Best Running Friend Take the Lead

Last summer, my best running friend (BRF), Molly, and I saw the musical, “The Book of Mormon”; we guffawed, grimaced, and gasped together the entire show. One song in the first act, in particular, struck us both: “You and Me (But Mostly Me).” Walking outside during intermission, Molly and I wiped away tears of laughter and quickly honed in on the toe-tapping song, in which the charismatic, headstrong missionary, Kevin, brags about he’s destined for greatness, while his bumbling, self-sabotaging sidekick, Arnold, will stand next to him and watch. At almost exactly the same time, Molly and I each blurt out, “just like us!” We shared a hearty laugh before heading back into the theatre…
