    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: Going 26.2 Four Days after Becoming a Mother

In Her Shoes: Going 26.2 Four Days after Becoming a Mother

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.
Melanie took on motherhood and a marathon (and a trans-Pacific flight) within days of each other. 

My husband and I had just flown home from Vietnam to Oregon from picking up Benjamin, our first son…

Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday: Amy Bailey

Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday: Amy Bailey

We’re excited to return to our regularly scheduled Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday and to keep the #TAMRTour  momentum going. (TAMR rhymes with BAMR, btw.)
Today we’re profiling Amy Bailey, a mother of newly-minted 7 year-old who lives in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Amy is going to join us on the Midwest leg of our #TAMRTour in mid-May, when we’re going to hit Indiapolis, Cincinnati, Milwaukee, (likely) and Minneapolis/St. Paul. You can RSVP for all the events here. 
My running history: Like many other mother runners, I started really running after my son was born. After years of enviously staring down runners on the sidewalks and trails, I signed up for and ran two 5 mile races in 2007 as I quit smoking and picked up the sport that I avoided as a high school athlete who played softball and volleyball…

Hump Day Running Giveaway: Two ZOOMA Race Entries

Dimity and I are long-time fans of ZOOMA women’s race series: We’ve loved them ever since we debuted our first book, Run Like a Mother, at ZOOMA Texas in 2010. We’ve reveled in the amazing vibe at these races across the country, from Cape Cod to Colorado, Annapolis to Atlanta, Napa Valley and maybe the debut Nashville race this November.

The ZOOMA series founder, Brae Blackley, is a mother runner of three young children, so she completely understands what a gal is looking for when she heads off for a race:
-A well-organized race with a choice of distances: Every ZOOMA race includes a half-marathon and either a 5K or 10K, and sometimes all three distances, like at last Saturday’s ZOOMA Texas…

Bethany Takes on Boston: All by Myself

Bethany Takes on Boston: All by Myself

 

Bethany Meyer, with just one last long run before the taper for Boston Marathon, added some zip lining to her training plan over spring break. Bethany is running as part of the team sponsored by Stonyfield Organic Yogurt: Click here to check out the other badass runners on the Stonyfield team and see what’s going on with them. 

Four kids is a lot of kids. I am reminded of this every time I run. Because my bladder leaks. It doesn’t matter that I empty it multiple times before lacing up my sneakers. Short run or long. On the track or the trail. Hydrated or not. My bladder leaks…

Push further (and possibly faster) than you think possible with this new Rock My Run mix.

Free Hour-Long RockMyRun Mix from Mother Runner Suggestions!

As much as I love podcasts, nothing motivates me more when I’m running solo than upbeat music. It’s kind of crazy: I’ll be on a 6-miler, listening to dear Peter Sagal and the “Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me” crew, and I’ll feel like sludge. Quads heavy, lungs heaving, Achilles twanging. It feels like I’d make faster progress if I hitched a ride on the back of a giant tortoise.
Then, once the last laughs of the Paula Poundstone and Tom Bodett fade, I switch to music. As soon as Hozier or Sia starts singing in my ears, it’s like a cosmic switch has been thrown; energy surges through my body…
