    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.

Bethany Takes on Boston: Murphy’s Law—or See Ya, January!

Bethany Takes on Boston: Murphy’s Law—or See Ya, January!

Bethany Meyer hits her second speedbump on the road to the Boston Marathon. Bethany is running as part of the team sponsored by Stonyfield Organic Yogurt: to check out the other badass runners on their team and see what’s going on with them, check in here.  

I used to take my kids to the mall for lunch and a carousel ride when they were little. I held one’s hand, buckled two into a double stroller, and strapped the fourth to my chest. I remember the idea of it being so much fun. But in reality it was mentally and physically draining. I have to apply the heating pad to my lower back just thinking about it…

Winter Chaser Running Playlist

Winter Chaser Running Playlist

Let’s admit it: This can be a tough time of year to rally and run. Your options can be equally unappealing: dark, cold, and slippery outside v. dank and d-u-l-l on the basement treadmill. While a peppy playlist won’t make the actual temperature rise or banish boredom completely, the right song mix can add a pep to your step.

This playlist is compiled from suggestions garnered on our Facebook page on a recent Saturday morning, when we asked for upbeat new songs. The runaway favorite for you mother runners landed second on the playlist: “Uptown Funk” by sexy Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars. Kudos for all the suggestions–I (Sarah) think this is our most kickin’ it playlist ever! Here’s this nearly 90-minute playlist on Spotify…

#146: How to Run a Sub-30min 5K or Sub-60min 10K

Sarah and Dimity realized it was high time they talk about how to bust a move in shorter races. In this podcast, they welcome back Christine Hinton (the genius behind the training plans in Train Like a Mother) to impart wisdom and practical tips about breaking the popular time goals of 30 minutes in the 5K and an hour in the 10K. After explaining why running a timed mile is critical, Coach Christine goes on to share crucial elements of success in reaching these time goals. Two spoilers: believing in yourself, and sticking to a training plan (which builds confidence and fitness). Coach shares sure-fire speed workouts, and she advises racers, “be prepared for the pain…

Martini Fridays: Like the Boss

Martini Fridays: Like the Boss

The past two week’s worth of training, in short, have been a Bruce Springsteen song. This one. Really, just one line in the song, then line about being tired and bored with myself. Because I am.

It’s still winter here, in case you missed the coverage of the snowmageddon and have spent the last week with your head in a bucket, which is totally your choice and I won’t judge. As I type, big, fat, fluffy flakes of snow are coming down. It’s a picture postcard of all that you could want a New England-y snow to be. It’s just darn scenic out there.

I dig winter. I like the hush and the thrill of new snow…
