    Born to run.

    No pressure or anything, though.

Martini Fridays: The Legs and Tush Say “No”

Martini Fridays: The Legs and Tush Say “No”

Not sure what Martini Fridays are? Catch up on Adrienne Martini’s mother runner tales here. 

My running life during the last two weeks could most charitably be labeled “directionless.” After however many weeks training for the Pittsburgh Half Marathon, I’m not sorry about my lack of focus.

The Burlington Marathon Relay two weekends ago was lovely. The race itself could have been a smidge more relay-runner friendly. The focus was clearly on the marathoners (as it should be, to a certain extent) but the rest of us ponied up some serious cash, too. The Fitter Knitter Relay Team, however, brought the party…

Why Tough Races Rule

Why Tough Races Rule

As we’re finishing up our third mother runner book, we’re going green this summer and recycling some of our blog posts. This post originally appeared on our site on April 7, 2013

With Boston Marathon a mere week away, my thoughts turn back to that epic race. I’d worked for years to qualify, narrowly missing my age/gender cutoff by roughly a minute not once, but twice. Third time was the charm, and I eagerly anticipated the 26.2-mile journey from quaint Hopkinton to urbane Boston. Then race day dawn with a ferocious heat, predicted to make it the hottest running of the race in its 116-year history…

Seven pairs of Sof Sole socks. Try saying that 5 times fast. And try winning them in this week's giveaway, along with a pair of insoles.

Hump Day Giveaway, National Running Day Edition: Sof Sole Socks + Insoles

National Bow Tie Day (August 28). National Pickle Day (November 14). Clean Your Refrigerator Day (November 15). Make a Hat Day (September 15). If Pets Had Thumbs Day (March 3). All days I let pass without giving a second (or a first!) thought.

But today is a day I can get behind. A day I believe in. A day I promote (literally!). A day I will be kickstarting with an 8-mile run. Because today is National Running Day.

Celebrated on the first Wednesday in June since 2009, National Running Day encourages folks to go for a run, encourage friends and family members to run, commit to a race, set a goal…

Follow This Mother!

Brookline, MA physician Rebecca Breslow has switched gears in recent months, making the decision to move away from practicing medicine and instead reaching out to fellow mother runners through her local strength and conditioning business called Moms Run Strong. “My goal with the athletes I train is to empower them to make their own dreams happen,” she says. “I think my medical background is helpful for this, as I can combine a scientific, evidence-based approach with my own personal experiences and the practical knowledge I’ve gained from those I have trained and studied with.” Up next for this BAMR: tackling the Runner’s World Heartbreak Hill 5K this weekend, June 7…

Sweaty selfie with Molly at the end of Sunday's run. My last unstructured, uncoached run until after October 12.

It’s (Marathon Training) Go Time for SBS

As I sit here at my keyboard, I keep having to stop typing because my left hand impulsively returns to my mouth so I can bite on my left pointer-finger nail. Type-type, bite-bite, type-bite-type. Then my right middle finger nail finds itself between my teeth. Tap-tap, bite, tap-tap-bite-bite-bite. I know myself well enough that I only chew on my nails when I’m nervous.

So I’m trying to pinpoint the source of my anxiety. It’s not writing a blog post–I “pen” about three of these badboys a week. No, it’s the topic that’s tying my stomach in knots: the start of more than four months of intense marathon training…
