Makes you feel warm and secure just looking at it, doesn't it?

Winner of Icebreaker Top and Socks

Lately all the members of my family have been burying their noses into books. Seven-year-old John just got turned on to the Captain Underpants series, leaving him turning pages and giggling well after he’s supposed to turn off the light. His twin sister, Daphne, is on an eclectic non-fiction jag, switching between books about crystals, U.S. presidents, pandas, and life on an 1850s Southern plantation. Big-sis Phoebe is obsessed with the Mother-Daughter Book Club series by Heather Vogel Frederick (who, I might add, lives here in Portland, so I’ve been begging Phoebe to write her a fan letter!)…

7 Ways to Deal With an Unsupportive Spouse (And Keep Running!)

7 Ways to Deal With an Unsupportive Spouse (And Keep Running!)

When mother runner Celeste posed to the AMR tribe the tough question of how to deal with a less-than-supportive husband, many of you chimed in—with been-there, done-that empathy and encouragement, as well as sound advice.

And clearly it isn’t only Celeste who is experiencing this right now and benefitted from the support. Numerous comments on the AMR Facebook page echoed her sentiments that while her husband says he’s supportive, his actions and attitude tell a different story. As mother runner Wendy says, “I thought I was the only one! Sometimes he’s supportive and sometimes he’s not … my theory is that as long as my running doesn’t inconvenience him, it is OK…

Follow These Mothers!

In the past year, sole sisters and Canadian BAMRs Jodi Snowdon and Alana McGilly Lamain took up running and decided to not only train together for a Disney race – the Princess Half Marathon Feb. 24– but also to chronicle their fitness journey online. “We started blogging to ‘scrapbook’ our race to the castle,” says Jodi, a.k.a. Princess Aurora for her upcoming 13.1-mile race. “We share how we’re doing it while juggling families and careers, and what we’re learning – warts and all. We talk about everything from motivation and time management to injuries and costumes. We’re not training for the Olympics; we’re just two moms on the run…

"Running to stand still" is another line from U2 that speaks volumes to this mother.

Don’t Get Stuck in a Moment

One of the countless parallels between parenting and running is it often feels like you’re in a situation that will never change. When you’re toilet training your two-year-old, you can’t ever imagine a day (and night!) when underpants will be your child’s permanent undergarment. When your third-grader is struggling with her multiplication tables, you can’t visualize her moving on to division or, could it be, pre-algebra. With running, it’s always going to be the slog of the race, never the triumph of the finish line.

It’s like what Bono, the enlightened frontman of U2, sings about in the song, “Stuck in a Moment…
