Winners of Nuun Prize Package

Winners of Nuun Prize Package

Sunshine—I mean Sarah—wasn’t kidding in the Nuun Giveaway post about Ragnar D.C. being hot and humid. The above  ”stay hydrated” text went out multiple times, and each time I read it, I was so glad all of our mother runner teams were solidly stocked with Nuun, electrolyte replacement tablets that help you hydrate more efficiently. (I’m no sports dietician, but I do know that water follows salt, and likes to hang out with sodium, one of the major electrolytes in Nuun.)

The scorching temps have since fallen, but fall race season is upon us, and Nuun is still as vital as ever. (And their golf/baseball hat is still as cool as ever…

“Serious Chafing” is in your blog title…OK, just how bad has the chafing got for you? While training for the 50K, no matter how much I covered myself with Bodyglide, I would still chafe in the most random locations (belly, shoulder blades, back), and I would not discover the new chafing until I was in the hot shower. OUCH!

 

 

What do you eat during an ultra?Island Boost, Picky Bars, Justin’s Hazelnut spread, grapes, pretzels, and Nuun.

Ragnar D.C. Race Report #2: Team Sarah Recap

Ding, ding, ding…round two of the Ultimate Mother Runner Showdown is up today, recounting Ragnar Relay D.C. Team Sarah is on display, and these momma’s are going to knock you out. (Ha. I crack myself up.) (Team Dimity took the stage on Tuesday, in case you missed it.)

Once again, a huge shout out to all our partners who gear us up, fuel us strong, and keep us as happy and healthy as possible. Couldn’t do it without you all.

And we’re off again on another 190+-mile journey.

I kicked things off for Team Sarah, and my most memorable run was my first one; the excitement, the energy, and the support from teammates at the start of the race is unforgettable…

Hump Day Running Giveaway: Sweaty Bands Galore!

Hump Day Running Giveaway: Sweaty Bands Galore!

Last week, my son asked me why I always have the same haircut. I stammered and (verbally) stumbled trying to explain to an 8-year-old that his mother’s hair looks like a haystack after a hurricane when it grows past a certain length. The short answer? I’ve found a style that works for my voluminous, wavy mop, and I’m sticking with it.

Unfortunately, my wash-and-go coif doesn’t work well with the cutest accessories we sell in our online store: Sweaty Bands. Few things I love better than an accessory that pulls an outfit together and is functional, and that’s exactly what a Sweaty Band is…

Ragnar DC Race Report: Team Dimity Recap

Ragnar DC Race Report: Team Dimity Recap

The First Annual Ultimate Mother Runner Showdown is complete—and what a showdown it was. We could all write a race report as long as the 199, hot, humid miles we ran in the Ragnar Relay from Cumberland, MD to the National Harbor in Washington D.C., but that’s a little ambitious. (And truth be told, we didn’t run 199 miles since 3 legs had to be canceled because of the government shut-down. But we didn’t lose sleep over lost miles; given the 90+ degree temps, we definitely ran far enough.)

Instead, we had each runner write a little bit about her Ragnar experience. Here’s Team Dimity’s…
