Mother Runner Version of “Let It Go”

This video came to us from a mother runner named Rashaun, who wrote in an email, “I wanted to share a video created by Stroller Warriors Okinawa. We are military spouses that run, support, and love with all our hearts. One of our members wrote lyrics to the ‘Frozen; song and created this video of all of our amazing mother runners. Stroller Warriors is an international running club with 11 (we are always growing) chapters around the world. I hope you enjoy it.”

I admit I still belt out Let It Go each and every time I hear it. Add in the mother runner component and the military spouses and, well, this video turned on my water works…

Tips for Running in the Rain

Tips for Running in the Rain

As runners at yesterday’s Rock ‘N’ Roll Portland were reminded: sometimes you just have to run in the rain. Whether it’s race day or a training run, griping won’t do any good; you need to have a rainy-day plan of action. For tips for running in the rain, we turned to the tribe on our Facebook page, and got these pointers.

Be cautious. While none of us like to cancel a run, when drizzle threatens to turn into a downpour (with lightning to boot), runners like mother runner Chelsea find postponing a run and rearranging their training schedule is much smarter than testing the elements.

Stay inside…

#110: Cheers! Adrienne Martini Serves up Debut Half-Marathon

Sarah and Dimity are joined by Adrienne Martini, mother runner, college professor, and author, who is fresh off running her first half-marathon. Adrienne reveals why she ran laps for many of her training runs, and how she kept herself entertained on long runs. The newly minted half-marathoner shares the internal dialogues she had with herself before runs, when she struggled to escape the orbit of her house. Recapping her race, she talks about why Mile 7 was both a relief—and a hurdle. First up, though: Listen to Sarah marvel at the joy—and blue ribbons—her 8-year-old twins are discovering at the local track…

Winner Hyland’s Homeopathic Gift Basket + Tee

Yesterday and today, Dimity and I are each meeting loads of ladies who could benefit from using Hyland’s Calms Forte: Dim’s at the Colfax Marathon expo, and I’m at the one for Rock ‘N’ Roll Portland Half-Marathon. As we all have probably experienced, it can be as tough for an amped-up mother runner to fall asleep the night before a race as it is to get a rowdy toddler to drift off at naptime.

Enter Calms Forte: This homeopathic sleep aid quiets a racing mind, letting cares drift away as you calmly doze off. Unlike other sleeping pills, Calms Forte lets you wake up without any groggy “hangover…

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Leah Heier

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Leah Heier

I began running in March 2009 to lose weight and quit smoking. On September 1, 2010, weeks before my third marathon, I was surprised to find out I was pregnant. My doctor advised against my marathon due to lack of training and fear of dehydration, and I didn’t contest. I quit running that day, stopped watching what I ate, and gained 90 pounds.

I spent my pregnancy in a depression induced by verbal abuse from the father and knowing I was a single mother. I was 25 and starting a career using my college education, but I was living in my parent’s basement.

The most important mile of my life took place in early July 2011, when my son was 8 weeks old…
