AMR Year in Review: September-December 2012

AMR Year in Review: September-December 2012

And we’re concluding our AMR Year in Review today. Here’s part I and II if you missed them. We’ve got a couple more Why I Runs lined up through the end of the week; we’ll see you all on Monday! Happy 2013!

September 2012

Highlight from Julia: In September I ran a 5k, on a bet! I have asthma and have never ran. Did not believe I could ever do it. I am now a Believer. I ran a 5k, I quit smoking and have signed up for a Warrior Dash in June.

Highlight from Shelly: This year I got to make a check mark next to a bucket list item: I ran my first half marathon and raised money for St. Jude and ran for all those sweet faces…

Polly and Sarah, her running pal, and their collective five kids represent big time. "It was the first time my 3-year-old had biked 5 miles and the first time my 2-year-old rode in a jogger," she said, "Fun was had by all--and we got our run in."

AMR Year in Review: May-August 2012

Aaaand we’re continuing on with our AMR 2012 Year in Review. Check out January-April here. 

May 2012
Highlight from Jaye: In Jan 2012, I took a month off due to plantar fasciitis. I ran my first half-marathon in May with PR of 1:47 and 1st full on Oct 20th in 4:00:18.4!

Highlight from Ashleigh: I was able to race again after having two kids and a traumatic brain injury in 2009 that left me partly paralyzed from a hit and run while crosstraining on my road bike. Cyclist vs. BMW: I lost but also won. I now have such a respect for life and myself.

Highlight from Tracey: Running the Pittsburgh Half Marathon in May with my running partner, who moved to Texas and came back for the race, and pushing her to a PR…

Deborah nails the Big Apple and a half-marathon;  her marathon dreams in NYC were delayed thanks to Ms. Sandy, havoc wreaker on the East Coast.

AMR Year in Review: January-April 2012

Oh, that we could all have running year’s like Mandy’s. We asked for your highlights of the year on our Facebook page, and it lit up like a Christmas tree. But Mandy? Well, check her out.

My whole year was a running highlight! My first 10K, 25K, 2nd half-marathon, first full, 3 5K PRs (breaking 25 minutes when I had never broken 27!), and running every Wednesday evening and Saturday morning with a running group consisting of family and friends who are like family! [Take a breath, friend, take a breath!] Started a runner support group on Facebook and reached 1,000 miles for the year! Crossing the finish line of that marathon with my dad was the icing on the cake! I get teary eyed looking back on all my running memories from 2012! I know 2013 will be great too!

2012 was pretty great for you guys too; here’s a small compilation of achievements and pics to remember the miles that will remain on your brains for many years to come…

Reflections on Our 2012 Races—and Sports Pride

Sarah and Dimity intended to spend the half-hour looking back at their 2012 races, but, like an exciting, uncharted run, the conversation took some unexpected turns. Dimity laments about lice, while Sarah offers been-there, picked-that advice. Then, Sarah’s seemingly simple question about proudest race moments evolves into an intriguing dialog about the feelings and emotions the mother runners feel after a race. And Sarah reveals her 2013 marathon.

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…

Why I Run: Jessica Russell

Why I Run: Jessica Russell

Jessica Russell lives in Oakland, California with her “patient husband and energetic 4 ½ year old twins.” She works full time as the director of alumni relations at a local arts college. She has run “three very slow marathons and 10 half-marathons.” She completed her first half iron-distance triathlon this past summer and dreams of completing her first full Ironman in 2014.

When my alarm goes off at 5 a.m. I ask myself why I run. When it is pouring rain and my shoes are soaked, I ask myself why I run. When my iPod dies half way through a 12-miler, I ask myself why I run. But nowhere do I ask this question more than during a marathon…
