    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.

#44: Baby, It’s Cold (and Snowy and Icy) Outside! [Repeat]

[NOTE: This episode originally aired in early 2013. Have no worries, Sarah and Dim will be back next week with a fresh episode!] Given the Arctic temps that have gripped Denver, it was only natural that Sarah and Dimity talk winter weather—and how to dress for exercising in it. Along the way the gals laugh over their experiences running in cold and slippery conditions; Sarah goes way back into her personal archives to talk about when she discovered her inner badass runner (when she was a long way from being a mother). Dimity shares a painful story that’ll make you wince—and think twice about venturing out onto icy conditions…

Martini Fridays: GOOOOOALs.

Martini Fridays: GOOOOOALs.

By the time you read this, it will be a new year. I hope yours has been pleasant so far. Mine kicked off with a long, sleepy drive back home after a wonderful few days in the mountains. I’m not quite back on my game yet so bear with me.

I’m largely indifferent about New Year’s Eve and the celebration thereof. I don’t really drink anymore — the White Russian I quaffed on Christmas is the more booze than I’d had the previous six months — and I can’t stay awake much past 10 p.m. My first thought most New Year’s Eves is “Thank the heavens I’m not in Times Square.”

You know you want to party with me…

Special Mother Runner Contest, Redux: This Year I Will…

If today’s post looks a lot like yesterday’s, never fear: You’re not losing your mind. It does. We wanted to throw a couple more real mother runner intentions your way to get you fired up to make your own. (Don’t worry: Tomorrow will be a new post, penned by Ms. Martini—above—herself. And yes, she will talk about her resolutions and explain the chicken thing.)

On Monday, we warmed you up with some talk about resolutions and goals, and mentioned our Nuun Year: No Limits Challenge that starts on January 26.

On Tuesday, we fed into that inspiration by profiling Malena, a mother runner who inched successfully towards her goal of running 40 races before she turned 40 years old…

Special Mother Runner Contest: This Year, I Will…

 

On Monday, we warmed you up with some talk about resolutions and goals, and mentioned our Nuun Year: No Limits Challenge that starts on January 26.

Yesterday, we fed into that inspiration by profiling Malena, a mother runner who inched successfully towards her goal of running 40 races before she turned 40 years old.

Now, it’s your turn.

Today, we want you create your own intention(s) for 2015. Can be minor, can be big, can be solo, can be a list, can be whatever feels right—and most, importantly—doable to you right now as you stare down the next 12 months. (Yes, we want you to veer just slightly out of your comfort zone, but going from a 5K to a ultra-marathon is no bueno: you’ll likely end up either injured or burnt out—or both…

A Mother Runner’s Goal: 40 Races Before Turning 40

A Mother Runner’s Goal: 40 Races Before Turning 40

The summer of 2013, Malena Jackson, a 39-year-old mother of three, came to a mother runner party in Denver with her pal Melanie. It was the first party we decided that we wanted attendees to write goals on their nametags…a little ice-breaker of sorts and a way to take advantage of the positive energy the events create.

Without much thought, Malena wrote down a pretty ambitious goal: 40 races before she turned 40 in December of 2014. Sarah and I, of course, loved the symmetrical, ambitious goal, and both mentioned it when we signed her copy of Train Like a Mother.

“Well, now it was in print by the famous Mother Runners,” Malena remembers,  ”Now I really had to do it! I decided to count my previous four completed races as part of my 40…
