    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.

Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday: Jenny Everett

Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday: Jenny Everett

Welcome to round two of Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday, where we preview one of the 22 essays and authors in our forthcoming book. While our names are on the cover, the book is a truly celebration of this amazing, badass community: not only does it contain 22 essays from a range of talented writers and mother runners, it has miles of insight, advice, stories, and humor from hundreds of you.
Up today: Jenny Everett, a mother runner who lives in Charleston, SC; she’s the mom to the super stylish Sam, 18-months-old, and Pritchard, who Jenny describes as, “a self-centered boykin spaniel and our 6-year-old first born…

Hump Day Giveaway: Hyland’s Homeopathic Cold/Flu Chaser Package

I’m not a germ-phobe. The 3-second rule in our house is more like a 30-second rule–maybe longer if the dropped item is particularly tasty or landed right side up. We often eat off the same fork or share ice cream cones. (I’d confess we also share napkins, but that makes us sound gross and cheap!) I kiss my cat’s head pretty much every time I spy its striped, furry-ness.

But, like many runners, I’m all about taking precautions against catching a cold or the flu, including getting an annual flu vaccine and washing my hands frequently. But with three petri dishes,  uh, I mean, young children, in my house, it’s next to impossible to stay well…

This Girl Can: A Video To Shake Up Your Tuesday

Stumbled across this video from This Girl Can—a campaign to encourage active women in England—on Facebook last night, and had to share. As Taylor so eloquently says, the haters are going to hate, hate, hate but we’re just going to shake—and sweat in—our real, live, child-bearing bodies.

And hey, new U.S. Congress: can we gently suggest to quickly pass and fund an intiative like this? We mother runners will happily add our jiggly butts…and smiles.

Swimming 4.25 Miles To Catch A Guppie

Swimming 4.25 Miles To Catch A Guppie

About seven years ago, I read a post from a triathlete who, to celebrate the new year, did 100 x 100 yards. (That’s 100, 100-yard pieces.) It takes multiple hours and is a little less than six miles of swimming, which I probably don’t need to tell you is a really, really long way to go in the pool unless you’re Diana Nyad or training to swim the English Channel.

Despite not being in either of those categories, I’ve stored that little (long) workout in the back of my head since that day. It swims around like a guppie in my big mental tank full of grocery lists, basketball practices, ring-tailed lemur science projects, Lena Dunham essays…

#143: Tales from Another Mother Essayist Nicole Blades

New Year, new book: Dimity and Sarah are eagerly awaiting the debut of their third book, Tales from Another Mother Runner, on March 3. To get you in on the excitement, every month on the podcast, they’re hosting one of the 20 contributors to the essay-filled book. Kicking off the party is Nicole Blades, a journalist, novelist, and mother runner of one in Connecticut. After a sharing her background as a runner, Nicole reads a make-you-laugh excerpt from her essay (listen closely and you might hear Sarah chortling in the background!). Then the ladies waste no time diving into TMI topics, including tactful phrases for pooping and tales of gas being passed…
