    Crosstrain, XTrain, XT: Call it what you want. Just do it.

    A throwback to Train Like a Mother--or actually, what was left on the cutting-room floor of Train Like a Mother. A space thing--not a content thing. (Good stuff, that crosstraining: we promise!)

This amazing machine--the NordicTrack C1750--will be won by one of six finalists.

Who Should Win the NordicTrack C1750 Treadmill? Vote, Please!

Yesterday afternoon, after the tragic news out of my home state of Connecticut, I was in desperate need of some solace, humor, and a reminder that people are inherently good. So I turned to the 1,468 entries we received in our giveaway of a NordicTrack Commercial 1750 treadmill. Short yet so powerful, these 6-word sentences proved time after time that there are so many clever, creative, and caring people in this world. Just as had happened the first time I read through them, tears sprung to my eyes–sometimes from laughing, but more often because I was moved.

Dimity and I combed through the entries with a fine-toothed comb, and we still couldn’t decide on a single winner…

What Would Another Mother Runner Do?

What Would Another Mother Runner Do?

In our semi-regular installments of What Would Another Mother Runner Do (WWAMRD), we’ve heard the dilemmas of Christy, who forgot to pack a sports bra for her midday run; Kelin, who slipped on a banana peel during a marathon, dislocating her hip; and Ellison, who scared off a would-be predator with some quick thinking. Today we introduce to you Andrea, a mother of two from Houston and long-time runner, whom we met on a lovely fall morning at ZOOMA Wisconsin. She was there with a load of mother runner friends, who had all dubbed themselves the Runwells. (The group got its name from Chicago corner–Rockwell Avenue–where they met/meet every Tuesday and Thursday at 6 a…

Stroller running mama extraordinaire Lindsey Hein (she’s logged a 20-mile training run while pushing son Marshall!) is training to run a 3:15 marathon this spring, the Yuengling Shamrock Marathon in Virginia Beach, Va. One of her training tactics? Two weeks in, run 26.2 with negative splits, which she did last weekend—she crossed the finish line with a time of 3:29:21 at the Rehoboth Beach Marathon. Lindsey and husband Glenn, of Indianapolis, Ind., ran their first marathon together just before their 2008 wedding. After their third marathon, the couple began writing about their miles together…

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: You Might Be Another Mother Runner If…

 

Since we had an AMR PR (personal record) of giveaways last week, we’re going to take a break from gear and giveaways for the rest of December. (If you need ideas for what to ask for, check out our Pinterest board devoted to just that subject!)

In temporary lieu of shoes and sports bras, we’re super excited to debut a new picture series: You might be another mother runner if…

We created this series when a bunch of amazing mother runners gathered on a sunny November day in Denver to be shot by Laura Mahony; we’ll release them regularly so you can savor and enjoy–and share!

And curious: how would you finish the phrase: You’re might another mother runner if…

Dimity and me this summer perched in my front yard. Note the splayed daffodil stems, untrimmed hedges, and abundance of weeds. The roses bloom despite my inattention.

A Mother Runner Who Longs to Be a Mother Gardener

While I bear more than a passing resemblance to Martha Stewart in her younger days, people are often shocked I have a a fair bit of domestic goddess in me. It’s as if running precludes any homey pursuits: Other mothers stop in their tracks when I mention I cook and bake from scratch; there are many puzzled looks when I admit to needlepointing several pillows on our living room couches. Two of my three remaining magazine subscriptions are Runner’s World…and Bon Appetit. When I get home from a 15-mile training run, I find it immensely satisfying to chop vegetables for a hearty soup, then get warm by stirring in the barley and lentils and checking the flame to ensure a steady simmer…
