    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.

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Alice Minnie White Barnett

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Alice Minnie White Barnett

I remember well the cold January afternoon my two closest friends met me at a local university. It was the beginning of a new year and we were meeting to run our first mile. None of us were runners, and we were still carrying around all the excess poundage we were determined to lose in the coming months.

Barely able to run for 30 seconds and spurred on by our desperate need of a bathroom, the situation was certainly comical, made worse by our own laughter. That was the first of many meetings, miles, and laughter together.

There have been other memorable miles: the first time I felt I could run outside without shame; the first time I ran in the rain, splashing and feeling like a kid again; the thrill of completing my first 5K; running miles in memory of my father; the triumphant final mile of my first 13…

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Taylor Bell

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Taylor Bell

In March 2010, I was blessed with my first child.

Three days after he was born, he began seizing and was diagnosed with a brain bleed and was admitted to PICU.  One day later, I developed a massive blood clot from my hip to my ankle and was admitted to another hospital.

We were both told it was a miracle we were both alive.

Thankfully, he recovered fully with no residual damage. I had surgery to remove the clot and was diagnosed with May Thurner Syndrome. I had run my last marathon in 2008 before getting pregnant, and my last half in 2009 when I was 24 weeks pregnant, so I wasn’t sure I’d ever see another finish line…

My Most Important Mile: Denise Collins

My Most Important Mile: Denise Collins

My most important mile ran has to be the very first one I ever ran.

I became a runner back in February 2010. I had been battling post-partum-turned-real-depression and medicine was not working. I had so much love and support from my husband (and kids), but I never felt so alone. A friend recommended that I try running. I was not a runner.

I had zero interest. At the same time, I also had nothing else to lose.

I laced up late one evening in my black Converse. As my feet struck the pavement, something inside of me ignited. Everything that was weighing me down—and I mean everything—came out as my feet smashed the road…

Winners of runDisney Princess Entries, Plus Survey Reminder

Winners of runDisney Princess Entries, Plus Survey Reminder

As I started writing this post, I tweeted I was choosing the winners of our runDisney Princess Half-Marathon giveaway. The epic prize package–for two separate winners–includes entry to the February race; a two-night hotel stay at Walt Disney World Resort; and a 2-Day Magic Your Way® with Park Hopper® Option theme park ticket. Kristen tweeted me back, “what a fun post- Christmas miracle gift that would be !!!!!,” making me feel like a Santa-Runner.

So, ho, ho, ho: Here are the randomly chosen winners, and their favorite Disney characters. (Don’t know if they’ll dress like them in the race, but we’re hoping they sport a costume…

Reflections on 2013 Races

Reflections on 2013 Races

For the second year in a row, the mother runners look back on the races they ran in the past 12 months. But this time they added a new beat to the race-reflections show: They interspersed songs that reminded them of their races, including the Ragnar Relay D.C., Disney Princess Half Marathon, and, of course, Dimity’s Ironman, among others competitive events. The gals share never-before-aired race memories, including Sarah recounting her Ragnar crush (find out why she dubbed him, “Charles Manson,” not your run-of-the-mill term of endearment). But before all that zaniness, Hear the gals talk—at length—about frozen fog…
