    Crosstrain, XTrain, XT: Call it what you want. Just do it.

    A throwback to Train Like a Mother--or actually, what was left on the cutting-room floor of Train Like a Mother. A space thing--not a content thing. (Good stuff, that crosstraining: we promise!)

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Anna Benvenuto

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Anna Benvenuto

My most important mile was Thanksgiving Day 2012. My sister and I were out walking; she turned to look and me and said, “So, I’ve been running a little. Want to run for a while?” Having been obese for my entire life and never really run before, I was filled with feelings of apprehension and self-doubt.

 We ran a single mile, during which time I said, “I’m dying,” at least 100 times. I, obviously, didn’t die. The next day we ran two miles. It was exhilerating and set me on a completely new path.

I began running consistently throughout the winter, which is no small feat in Vermont in the cold, snowy darkness…

#128: The Importance of Rest

Sarah and Dimity talk about nothing—doing nothing, that is. Rest is a crucial part of an exercise program, whether it’s a rest day during a training plan; recovering properly after a race; not overdoing it on “easy” days; or getting enough sleep. The gals cover all these forms of rest as they crack each other up. This podcast also reveals such personal details about Dimity as her family dinner routine, her bedtime, and her astrological sign.
This is a repeat podcast as the mother runners are running from San Francisco to Napa Valley in the Ragnar Relay. Oh, the irony of them talking about sleeping and resting when they’re coping about 2 hours of shut-eye in the past 24 hours!

*If you’re digging our podcasts, we’d be super-grateful if you’d take a minute (because we *know* you have so many to spare!) to write a review on iTunes…

Martini Fridays: even the best of plans aren’t foolproof

Martini Fridays: even the best of plans aren’t foolproof

This training cycle has not gone as planned.

I’ve tried to keep this running engine on its proverbial tracks. I really, really have. Two weekends ago, I went for a 10-mile run, just like I was supposed to. The morning was Goldilocks perfect: not too hot and not too cold. Just windy enough, with a few gusts to keep it interesting. I was at just the point in my audiobook that I wanted to keep running so that I can hear what happens next. This long run that more than made up for the demoralizing one from the previous week.

Heck, I’d even been hitting my tempo run goals — and discovered that I actually like tempo runs, which can only mean that I ought to pick up the pace…

Hump Day Giveaway: ISO Mother Runner Help, Please

Back in the day, when we wrote Run Like a Mother, we has no clue that one yellow book would launch Another Mother Runner, a place where female runners of all levels can celebrate muscular legs and cry over fractured bones; send inspiration and support—and grab some when they need it; and connect in the knowledge that they’re nestled in a community of like-minded, funny, honest, strong women.

And we’re in the midst of putting together our biggest year yet. 

Yep, we’re planning a nationwide book tour for Tales From Another Mother Runner, the first AMR Retreat(s), three AMR Challenges and a bunch of other good stuff…
