    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.

Tell Me Tuesday: Running through Daylight Savings Time Shift

T.S. Eliot might have called April the cruelest month, but Dimity told me recently she thinks March is the hardest month to run in. The weather can shift in a heartbeat–snow showers one minute, gusts of rain the next–and then there’s the whole “spring ahead, fall back” time shift thing. As a parent (and a human being), I love when daylight lingers well past dinnertime. But as a devoted morning runner, I loathe being plunged back into darkness after being treated to a few weeks of weak dawning light.

We shift clocks ahead an hour this Saturday night. (Right!? Hard to believe, but true.) Since being prepared is half the battle, here’s how to keep right on running next week and beyond…

AMR Virtual 5K: Let’s Get It Started + Everything You Need to Know

AMR Virtual 5K: Let’s Get It Started + Everything You Need to Know

Welcome to the First (Annual? Maybe. We’ll see.) AMR 5K, a training program and run where we, righteous, fierce badass mother runners that we are, will all push each other out the door and across the finish line.

Here’s the 4-1-1- necessary to get your 5K on:

Why are you doing this?
Taking a wide view, because we know that the more mother runners there are in the world, the better place it is.

Focus in, and we’ve heard from plenty of you that you need some tough love and a gentle shove (hey: that rhymes). You want to figure this running thing out, but for some reason—time, schedule, motivation, inspiration, frustration—it’s just not working for you…

Find out why this smiley-face princess sums up this podcast so well.

The Mothers Answer Fresh Questions

Dimity and Sarah’s version of a call-in show: answering questions from gals on Facebook. They assure Sue it’s okay to walk during a race; counsel Laura on coming back from a sprained ankle; give Shelly advice on how to race two half-marathons close together (this conversation leads to an interesting debate between our mother runners); and mull over ways for Adrienne to keep track of laps at a track. (They want your help with a  solution for that question.) But before they dive into questions, they relive the Disney Princess Half-Marathon…and vow to smile more.

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…

Ice, ice, baby: 110% Juggler Knickers are truly cool.

Winner of 110% Juggler Knickers

My kids attend a non-traditional public school, where the arts are integrated into every aspect of the curriculum. Yesterday, as part of a lesson plan on balance and motion, our twins’ class twisted and twirled in a performance complete with tumbling exercises and trapezes. The entire class our older daughter, Phoebe, is in is learning to play ukulele, which means she treats us to string-pluckings that are supposed to be, oh, Bruno Mars, “Count on Me.” (I’m counting on her to not drop of out of school for a solo ukulele career anytime soon….) Here’s a video of the arts in action in our living room (there’s Phoebe strumming away as younger-sis Daphne dances, and be sure to note the wooden “Queen Elizabeth” doll that Daphne made me for Christmas)…

Pssst: AMR’s First Virtual 5K Starts on Monday!

Pssst: AMR’s First Virtual 5K Starts on Monday!

Right after the clock rolled to 2013, we put up a post on Facebook, asking very vaguely about runners who were beginners or were constantly sputtering. Runners who had not yet found—or were unable to maintain—their groove. Our inbox flooded. We thought we would get 50 responses. More like 500.

So we sat on it for a bit because a) we can procrastinate with the best of them and b) our original idea—to profile one person—felt empty. We didn’t want to leave any mother runner behind.

Instead, we realized we wanted to do a group program where all of you can succeed, inspire, support and run, at a minimum, at the end of 10 training weeks a 5K…
