    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.

The Boston Marathon Tragedy through the Eyes of Two Mother Runners

Dimity and Sarah each talk to a mother runner who ran the 2013 Boston Marathon to hear the story in their own words. Melissa Fryback of Portland dug deep and set a PR (3:43:46) but had barely 20 minutes to celebrate before the blasts, while Katherine Sullivan and her friend Becky Stouder finished just ahead of the terrifying explosions. We cried while talking with these strong women, and we suspect more tears will be had while listening to them. Let them mix with your sweat on your next life-affirming run.

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…

Winner of Saucony Spring Outfit, and Portland Solidarity Run

In times of crisis, strength can be gained from being with others–whether online, like we all have been this week on our Facebook page and this website, or in person. So Wednesday evening, after dropping off my 7-year-old son at a baseball game, my running partner Molly, her older daughter, and I headed to the east bank of the Willamette River for a group run, organized by the Portland Triathlon Club to show support for Boston. Here are some iPhone images from the life-affirming event.

Best line of the evening, from the organizers before the run: “You may shake us, but you’ll never break us…

Turns Out, Mother Runners *Can* Have Their Cake

Turns Out, Mother Runners *Can* Have Their Cake

We wanted to end this week with something sweet and joyful, something to remind you of all that is good in the world.

In a word: cake.

Not any cake, but this beauty, which was made by Deborah Halliday Mills, a badass mother runner if I ever knew one. (The Canadian who lives in Jersey is coming to Colorado this summer, and looked for a local race she could, you know, just do while she’s here. So she signed up the Leadville Heavy Half, a 13.1-miler that climbs to over 13,000 feet. Yep. Badass.)

Deb brought the cake to our Montclair, NJ party last week and we were all in awe. I kept saying, “This is better than my wedding cake…

Follow This Mother!

Melissa Kirkham, 39, didn’t take “no” for an answer, and she’s got a slew of training runs and races to her name to prove it. How’d this San Diego, Calif. mom of two teens stand up for herself exactly? She refused to follow her (former) doctor’s advice to stop running. Melissa, who has a full 2013 race calendar, is eager for what lies ahead: “I turn 40 this year—I can’t wait!”

Best recent run: I try to get my long runs in with my running group, but we’re all different paces and I often find I’m still running alone. Recently, another mother runner decided to run with me…

10 Ways to Support Boston

Since mid-afternoon Monday, our minds and hearts have been focused on the events that horrifically unfolded on Boylston Street, then radiated out from there. We have wanted to reach out across the miles and console the marathon runners, the spectators, the families, the race officials, the first responders, the medical personnel–and all of the women in this community. And we know all of you feel the same way. Here are 10 ways you can show your love and support.

1. Buy our limited edition Boston Marathon heart run shirt, a super-smart suggestion by Paige on our Facebook page. We will donate all profits to The One Fund Boston, a charity dedicated to all the victims…
