    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.

Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday: Kristin Armstrong

Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday: Kristin Armstrong

We’re excited to return to our regularly scheduled Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday and to keep the #TAMRTour  momentum going. (TAMR rhymes with BAMR, btw.)

Today we’re profiling Ms. Kristin Armstrong, writer of the popular Mile Markers on Runner’s World Zelle, as well as a recent (and oh-so-insightful) guest on our podcast.

Kristin is going to join Sarah, and Susan Schorn, another TAMR essayist, for a rockin’ night in Austin on March 26th at the Texas Running Company. Don your best boots–or your running shoes!—and join us. RSVP here for a free, fun night full of prizes, laughs, and mother runner connection…

Hump Day Giveaway: 4-Pack of Nuun + Pint Glass. Five Winners!

As I’ve admitted here before, our family of five doesn’t have many traditions. I admire the heck out of parents who repeat events every year, like pancakes served in bed on birthdays or squeezing into wedding clothes for a photo on every anniversary, but I’m either too uncreative or lazy to think up something, then stick with it.

But one thing we do every year en famille is attend the neighborhood St. Patrick’s Day parade, dubbed “the dog parade” by our kids (I’ll tell you why in a moment). It’s a charmingly homespun event, organized by a local family with a love of the Irish.  Boy Scout troops proudly carry banners; owners of antique convertibles slowly drive along the route with tops down, throwing Tootsie Rolls and Starbursts at spectating kids; kids dressed in green on bedecked bikes ride  by; Irish wolfhound and Corgi owners march en masse with their dogs (thus our nickname for the parade)…

Bethany Takes on Boston: I Am Here Now

Bethany Takes on Boston: I Am Here Now

Bethany Meyer is gaining ground on the starting line of the Boston Marathon, even if she can’t feel her hands after running 15 miles in the rain. Bethany is running as part of the team sponsored by Stonyfield Organic Yogurt: to check out the other badass runners on their team and see what’s going on with them, check in here.  

I am making a concerted effort in my life to be right where I am.

Also, to wear comfortable shoes.

If I’m able to be present while wearing comfortable shoes, I feel like I am winning at life. Or, at the very least, that I’m banking memories which I can revisit and enjoy without being preoccupied by how much my feet hurt from having worn those darn uncomfortable shoes…

#AMRinSaucony: Spring in Step Winners!

#AMRinSaucony: Spring in Step Winners!

We had a ball watching the #AMRinSaucony spring-in-step pics roll in last week, and I dare say the campaign may have helped spring come around in many parts of the country. So mnay things put a spring in your step, Ma Nature couldn’t help but pay attention.
First, you paid homage to the white stuff blanketing much of the country…running in it, regardless of the temperature, makes you badass, which naturally puts a spring in your step.

And cute kids, especially those in motion, definitely put a spring in your step..whether you want it or not. (Waiiiiiiit! Look both ways!)

And, of course, the awesome range of Saucony shoes predictably spring up your step…

Sleep, Sleep: Challenge Yourself to Get More

Careful readers might remember this sleep post from last year…I tried to take a stab at writing a new version of it on the plane, but I was eating my knees and the reality is, these words still ring clear true. Plus, being on the road for five days for the #TAMRTour, while crazy fun, was also crazy exhausting. I think I’m drooling on my laptop as I type this.

So if you want to skip to the end of the post to get to details about how to join the Five-Day Hyland’s Sleep Challenge, go ahead. I won’t blame you. 

I’ll just put this out there, and hope I am not alone: by about 3 p.m. on days that aren’t as smooth as I’d hoped, I’m prone to calculate how many more hours it’ll be until I’m prone in my bed…
