    No pressure or anything, though.

Can't, for the life of me, find photos of Molly, Kristin, and me after our first training run, so this one of Molly and me before our half-marathon will stand in for it. (Sorry!)

Jumping Back on the Train(ing)

Two weeks ago yesterday, I ran the Twin Cities Marathon; yesterday I ran 13 miles as prep for the December 16 Holiday Half here in Portland. I guess some folks, say, for example, Dimity, might call that a quick turnaround. Our conversation when I told her went something like this. Dimity: “There’s no way I would want to jump back on a training plan so quickly.” Me: “It wasn’t so fast…I took a whole week off of running.” Ah, perspective.

But daylight is burning: I have pals counting on me for this half-marathon. Molly, Kristin, and I are running it together, to pull us all to a finish under two hours…

Ready, Set, Go: It’s Race Day!

Recorded days before heading to the Twin Cities to run the marathon (Sarah) and 10-miler (Dimity), the gals reminisce about memorable race day mornings—including such beauties as when SBS kept gagging while brushing her teeth before the Nike Women’s Marathon. Then the mother runners read the final chapter of Train Like a Mother, which counts down the days and minutes leading up to the start of a race. But the not-to-be-missed moment of this podcast is when Dimity uses the phrase “freeballing.” (She later admits she meant “freewheeling.”)

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…

Special Giveaway: Runspiration

Iliana, another mother runner, messaged us one day via Facebook. “You both have inspired me so much,” she wrote, “I have necklaces I want to send you.” Not people to turn down jewelry, we wrote back with our addresses and got these lovelies in the mail a few days later.

“I made a very limited number of necklaces to give out to women that started running after they saw me doing halfs and other races,” she added later, “And they all told me I had been an inspiration to them. I felt it was a huge responsibility and I kept at it. Now when I don’t feel like going out and train, I think of them…

Follow This Mother!

Carrie Meconis ran her first marathon, the New York City Marathon, in 2011. This mother runner who lives in Queens, NY with her husband and their three-year-old daughter, is tackling her second marathon, this year’s 26.2 in the Big Apple, on Nov. 4. Just a couple of weeks away from race day, Carrie is feeling good about her training: “I’m very happy with where I’m at right now … I’m ready!”  

Best recent run: My best recent run was my second 20-miler of this training cycle with three other running moms all at different times. The first joined me for 12 miles, the second came in at mile 10 and left at mile 16, and the third also joined me at mile 10 and left at mile 19…

Hump Day Giveaway: Trek Bike Accessories!

Hump Day Giveaway: Trek Bike Accessories!

Quick note: This is the post that comes out as I try to watch the presidential debate and write a giveaway post at the same time. My brain can’t multiask that well. We know that politics and running don’t mix, so please don’t mistake my unpolished words: I tried to keep it as even and simple as possible. Truth be told: I don’t care who you vote for, I just want you to vote. But here is one perspective I will put out there: if more people rode bikes, the world would be a better place.

Concerned citizen: The price of gas is just too high for my blood, and I’m just starting to ride my bike to work…
