    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.

Larissa Rivers, before she became a mother runner, running an ultramarathon.

Larissa Explains It All

Still shimmering with glitter—and a healthy dose of pixie dust—Dimity and Sarah share fresh memories from the 2014 Tinker Bell Half Marathon at Disneyland. Then the mother runners welcome Larissa Rivers, the run marketing manager at the GPS app/website Strava. A new, first-time mom Larissa talks about returning to work (sometimes via foot over the Golden Gate Bridge!) and training for her first post-baby race. (An ultrarunner, Larissa is “scaling back” to a marathon.) Larissa takes listeners through the genesis of Strava and its nifty features—which give Sarah the chance to finally tell Dimity she needs to slow her roll on some training runs…

ZOOMA-ZOOM-ZOOM: Winner of ZOOMA Race Entries, and Another Contest

First off: Please assure me I’m not the only one who loved, absolutely loved!, “Zoom,” the 1970s PBS program created by and for kids. Within the past week, I’ve made a Fannee Doolee observation along the lines of, “Daphne likes kittens but hates cats,” or “John likes roller coasters but hates bumper cars.” And now that I read part of the Wiki post about the TV show, I have the theme chant lodged in my brain–the same, “Come on and Zoom, come on and give it a try…” ditty that plays on my internal stereo whenever I think the women’s race series called ZOOMA.

A ZOOMA race weekend is equally as lively, with a “mocktail” party the night before the race; a 5K or 10K plus the signature half-marathon; yoga and foam rolling sessions at the post-race party; wine flowing at the same party; and great shopping both at packet pick-up and on race day…

Martini Fridays: Hills + the ‘Mill

Martini Fridays: Hills + the ‘Mill

Adrienne is off and running: week 1 of the Train Like a Mother Half-Marathon: Finish It Plan done as she trains for her first half-marathon. If you have no idea what I’m typing about, check out her introduction here. 

I’ve moved around a lot. I was born in Wilmington, DE—yes, my Dad did work for DuPont, which seems to be that city’s main employer—then lived in Atlanta. I started kindergarten in Chicago. By first grade, we’d moved to Pittsburgh, where my Dad went to work with a guy he’d grown up with.

In da ‘Burgh, I lived in at least six different houses in a couple of different neighborhoods…

Follow This Mother!

Mother runner Amy Blake, 38, wasn’t always a fan of group running–until she found a few fun runners who like heading out in just about any kind of weather and on varied terrain as much as she does. And where Amy and her friends live, well, there’s lots of variety and adventure. Consider that so far this winter their town of Houghton in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula has recorded nearly 200″ of the white stuff. “I recently mapped a route for us that I, um, didn’t quite follow to the letter, which landed our group at a dead-end,” says the mom of two. “Fortunately, we’re not completely averse to climbing over giant snowbanks, getting stuck hip-deep in snow, and inadvertently trespassing in backyards (oh, you mean that’s not a road? Sorry!)…

Hump Day Running Giveaway: Two Pairs of Dansko Shoes

In my senior high school yearbook, circa 1980s, there’s a chart that chronicles the traits and quirks of all my classmates and me. The column that forever stands out in my mind is, “Never Without.” In now-hard-to-read grey-and-black type are reminders of my classmates (and my) younger selves. There’s brilliant, Yale-bound Tilney who was never without “a big word.” (She’s now a mother runner quoted in Run Like a Mother.) There’s quixotic Thea, never without “mood swings.” Or my good friend Allen, dapper even as a teen, never without, “a matching outfit.” And his polar opposite, Seth, never without a “tie-dyed shirt…
