    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.

Follow This Mother!

Laurie Mapp, a Canadian BAMR, is looking forward to getting dirty this summer—she and her husband Darin are signed on to participate in the Mud Hero, an August obstacle course event in Red Deer, a town north of Calgary. Laurie, 37, and her family of five—she and Darin have three boys—live in Spruce Grove, Alberta.

Best recent run: My best recent run was on a Saturday night—the weather was warm, but not too hot, and I was running on a local school track. The track was dusty and boring, but it was an awesome run because my whole family was with me. My husband was running and my boys were playing tag in the park right next to the track…

The SkinFare line-up: helping your skin while not harming the environment.

Hump Day Giveaway: SkinFare Organic Skincare Sticks

In my childhood backyard, hidden under the lush, spreading branches of a gargantuan evergreen, lay Magic Potion Land. My best friend from preschool, Paul King, and I had dubbed the enchanted area, where we mixed together rose petals, acorn caps, pine needles, and water in old mayonnaise jars. Towheaded Paul and I stood side-by-side in the cool shade, our blond heads nearly touching as we intently stirred our potions with dirt-flecked sticks. We murmured notions about what the magical formulas could do—allow us to fly; cause us shrink to the size of mice; tame deer and rabbits to eat out of our hands; make us so smart we’d know everything in the whole wide world; cure cancer…

Photo Gallery: AMR Virtual 5K Runners

Holy Mother Runners! You amazing women came out in droves this weekend to get the AMR Virtual 5K done…and Sarah and I are ridiculously proud virtual mothers. Take some time to go through this slide show, put together by our super intern Kate, of a slew of women who participated to realize how strong and inspirational the collective tribe of mother runners is. I’m prone to overuse adjectives, so I’ll just leave it at this: badass.

Two notes about the slide show:
1. We included all the pics we could pull together by midday today, so if you sent in your submission but your pic is missing, realize you’re there in spirit…

Game On!: Half-Ironman on Saturday

Game On!: Half-Ironman on Saturday

So I’ve been training for 7.5 months for Ironman Coeur d’Alene, and, for various reasons—injury + schedule mostly—have only raced a 5K. Huh. That will change when I take to the wild streets of Grand Junction, Colorado this Saturday, in the HITS Triathlon Series. Although they have races that range from a mini-sprint to a full on Full (2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike, 26.2-mile run), I am tackling the half distance: 1.2-mile swim, 56-mile bike, 13.1-mile run.

I am usually a go-with-it (read: ignorant) racer. Very little race prep, save for soaking in as much sleep as I can and eating carb-heavy Chipotle—light on the beans, thanks—the night before…

Alicia Keys gives the Mother Runners an extra boost during the virtual 5K.

AMR Virtual 5K Accompaniment

In an extra-special, hour-long podcast, Dimity and Sarah offer advice and encouragement for gals running the Another Mother Runner Virtual 5K. They talk about the importance of getting a little goofy in a race, yet also fighting like a warrior to make a goal. Songs get woven into the mix, everything from One Direction to P!nk, Macklemore, Flo Rida, Alicia Keys, and Dimity’s fave, The Avett Brothers. Along the way, they cheer on Roz, Karen, Sharon, Jennifer, Connie, and a host of other mother runners gunning for the finish line. Go, girls, GO!

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…
