    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!)

#123: Ultrarunning Mother—and Daughter

Buckle up: Dimity and Sarah cover a lot of ground in this podcast, starting with a half-marathon race recap by SBS, and some thoughts from Dimity about her rapidly approaching Pikes Peak Ascent. The ladies are joined by Pam Smith, M.D., a pathologist, mother of two, and kickass ultramarathoner. Pam has them hanging on every word as she tells how she went from being the fourth-to-last finisher in the 2012 Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run to winning the prestigious ultra the very next year. (!!!) Yet it’s refreshing to hear Pam admit, “there’s gotta be some peer pressure to do burpees…

I run for many reasons, yes. But I'd be lying if one of those reasons wasn't because running lets me eat this without guilt.

Martini Fridays: Good enough and the Garden State Parkway

Adrienne is eight weeks in to the 13.FUN challenge and pondering what makes a run good enough, in this edition of Martini Fridays.

Thanks to all y’all for being so encouraging about my current maelstrom. Life has a way of happening all at once, which I suspect each mother runner can totally identify with. Once things calm down on this end — they always do — it’ll be my job to pay the support forward, as all humans should do.

So some good news: last Thursday’s 10-miler was pretty darn good. The weather was perfect: cool and slightly overcast. My legs felt, well, still sort of tired, but in a way that I could work with…

Half-Marathon Race Report: Bridge of the Gods

Last Sunday, standing on the Washington side of the Bridge of the Gods in the Columbia River Gorge with almost 700 other half-marathon participants, I felt primed to take on 13.1 miles. All the pieces were in place: I’d been training since early June with Coach Briana “Bri” Boehmer, pushing out paces I hadn’t clocked in several years in pursuit of a speedy times at October’s Victoria Marathon. I’d carb-loaded and hydrated with an intensity I don’t think I’ve ever done before. I had a jammin’ new playlist on Spotify (set on shuffle, if you can believe it!!). My running partner, Molly, and I had done a great coach-prescribed warm-up that left me feeling loose and peppy, if a bit damp already…

Follow This Mother!

Organic egg farmer and mom of two Sandra Laflamme is at home running the trails of New Hampshire, where she and her family live and farm. Sandra, 37, is training for her first tri, the Olympic distance at the Lobsterman Triathlon in Maine.
Best recent run: A 17-mile trail run in the Pemigewasset Wilderness in New Hampshire. I ran the trail with three of my best girlfriends and we started at the Zealand Falls Trail Head and ran to Lincoln Woods. The trail ran along the Pemigewasset River which included scenic waterfalls and even a little bushwacking! It was the perfect run, filled with laughter and fun with some of the strongest women I know!
At home on the trails: Running has given my life a sense of balance…
