Strong: Boston Marathon Commemorative Tees and Sweaty Bands

“Soon after the elites finish come the runners who have flattened themselves to get a BQ—a Boston qualifier. These are the people who use Boston as their final or even annual test to satisfy their need to be their own heroes.” —Kathrine Switzer, the first female runner in the Boston Marathon, in the introduction of 4:09:43 by Hal Higon, a book that commemorates the 2013 Boston Marathon

Where were you last April 15, 2013 at 2:49 EST? Bet you have a very vivid memory of where you were when you heard about the bombings at the Boston Marathon, explosions that killed 3, injured over 250, and shook the running world to its very core…

Dimity taking a rare nap--is it a hockey nap or a disco one?--under our merch table last June.

The Sleep Show

Sarah and Dimity re-live their weekend at runDisney Princess Half Marathon, complete with numerous clang-clanging medals. Having woken up at 2:45 a.m. for that race’s early start, it’s fitting that the mother runners bring on a sleep expert, Dr. Kelly Glazer Baron, the director of the Behavioral Sleep Medicine Program at Northwestern University, to talk about how sleep—and lack of it—affects mood, motivation, and running performance. Kelly, as the ladies call the doc, shares tips for falling asleep—and back to sleep. Dimity asks a trifecta of questions about drugs—caffeine, alcohol, and Rx—and how they affect catching zzz’s…

Winners Galore: NordicTrack 1750 Treadmill + Sweaty Bands + Action Wipes

Winners Galore: NordicTrack 1750 Treadmill + Sweaty Bands + Action Wipes

It’s been a whirlwind week(s) of travel for us mother runner in chiefs, and while it’s been amazing, sometimes I don’t give things the thought and focus they deserve. Case in point: my decision to turn our contest for the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Treadmill into  a popular vote. When I wrote the original post, I didn’t indicate that we would turn the entries open to voting.

Fast forward 2+ weeks, and I’m sitting in a hotel room; the (swamped) expo, where Sarah is working, is miles away; and I can’t make a decision because the finalists are all so creative and strong. I toggle through the pictures for at least an hour, hoping to magically make a decision, but no dice…

Martini Fridays: An Extra Week of Training? Fun!

Martini Fridays: An Extra Week of Training? Fun!

In this edition of Martini Fridays, Adrienne Martini, training for the Pittsburgh Half-Marathon using the Train Like a Mother: Finish It plan, realizes she’s served herself up a few more miles.

This is not what I expected to be writing about this week.

Before you panic, I’m not injured nor sick. Everyone near and dear to me is well.

Oh, and I’m not pregnant. That particular ship has sailed, thank all the gods that may be. I love my babies but I am d-o-n-e.

No, my surprise is much more mundane. What I’d expected to devote my entire post to this week  was Saturday’s nine-miler and how I keep failing at the “fun workout…

Follow This Mother!

Tara Newman, 37, will take on her longest race this spring at the Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Run in Washington, D.C. “I have no expectations for this race other than to have fun. I really love the sights around D.C. and I am looking forward to the adventure.” Adventure and athletics are what this Commack, N.Y. mother runner and her family are all about—Tara and her husband John are behind the blog Family Sport Life, where they share the active life they lead with son Alasdair, 8, and daughter Avery, 5 (who their parents call “The A Team”).

Best recent run: My long run this past weekend was on the treadmill for an hour and 45 minutes…
