Jill Conyers is an ultra BAMR who fuels her longer-than-marathon distances with a plant-based diet—a lifestyle/diet change that started with a 30-day clean eating challenge. “After about day 15, I felt amazing and my curiosity was piqued,” says Jill, 46, who lives with her husband and their two kids in Cincinnati. Jill is pondering her next race move, but says she’ll definitely be running the this June’s Hawthorn Half Day Relay, “a 12-hour relay that I have run with my husband for the past three years.”

Best recent run: A recent Saturday in February was one of the best runs I’ve had this year…

Hump Day Giveaway: Saucony Spring (!) Outfit

Hump Day Giveaway: Saucony Spring (!) Outfit

With my brain full of random detritus (a sample from today: get frozen pancakes at the store, pick up dog piles in the yard before garbage man comes, remember how to ), I’m not certain about many things these days.
But there are two things I can say with certainty:
1. This winter, Mother Nature is definitely not a mother runner. She may run in other seasons, but something—an injured IT band?, a new baby?—has set her off. I cringe everytime I hear “6 to 8 inches of snow,” even if the flakes are falling nowhere near me.
2. Nothing I love better than a good blue technical hoody. Screams spring to me…

Strong: Boston Marathon Commemorative Tees and Sweaty Bands

“Soon after the elites finish come the runners who have flattened themselves to get a BQ—a Boston qualifier. These are the people who use Boston as their final or even annual test to satisfy their need to be their own heroes.” —Kathrine Switzer, the first female runner in the Boston Marathon, in the introduction of 4:09:43 by Hal Higon, a book that commemorates the 2013 Boston Marathon

Where were you last April 15, 2013 at 2:49 EST? Bet you have a very vivid memory of where you were when you heard about the bombings at the Boston Marathon, explosions that killed 3, injured over 250, and shook the running world to its very core…

Dimity taking a rare nap--is it a hockey nap or a disco one?--under our merch table last June.

The Sleep Show

Sarah and Dimity re-live their weekend at runDisney Princess Half Marathon, complete with numerous clang-clanging medals. Having woken up at 2:45 a.m. for that race’s early start, it’s fitting that the mother runners bring on a sleep expert, Dr. Kelly Glazer Baron, the director of the Behavioral Sleep Medicine Program at Northwestern University, to talk about how sleep—and lack of it—affects mood, motivation, and running performance. Kelly, as the ladies call the doc, shares tips for falling asleep—and back to sleep. Dimity asks a trifecta of questions about drugs—caffeine, alcohol, and Rx—and how they affect catching zzz’s…

Winners Galore: NordicTrack 1750 Treadmill + Sweaty Bands + Action Wipes

It’s been a whirlwind week(s) of travel for us mother runner in chiefs, and while it’s been amazing, sometimes I don’t give things the thought and focus they deserve. Case in point: my decision to turn our contest for the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Treadmill into  a popular vote. When I wrote the original post, I didn’t indicate that we would turn the entries open to voting.

Fast forward 2+ weeks, and I’m sitting in a hotel room; the (swamped) expo, where Sarah is working, is miles away; and I can’t make a decision because the finalists are all so creative and strong. I toggle through the pictures for at least an hour, hoping to magically make a decision, but no dice…
