Hump Day Running Giveaway: Two Pairs of Dansko Shoes

In my senior high school yearbook, circa 1980s, there’s a chart that chronicles the traits and quirks of all my classmates and me. The column that forever stands out in my mind is, “Never Without.” In now-hard-to-read grey-and-black type are reminders of my classmates (and my) younger selves. There’s brilliant, Yale-bound Tilney who was never without “a big word.” (She’s now a mother runner quoted in Run Like a Mother.) There’s quixotic Thea, never without “mood swings.” Or my good friend Allen, dapper even as a teen, never without, “a matching outfit.” And his polar opposite, Seth, never without a “tie-dyed shirt…

AMR Greatest Hits: How to Dress for Winter Weather

AMR Greatest Hits: How to Dress for Winter Weather

While we were all Frozen in lovely SoCal this weekend, we realized we still have a lot of winter weather to deal with, so we decided to trot out this helpful post from over two years ago. Enjoy—and stay warm!

If you’ve read Run Like a Mother, you know that Dimity and I were both introduced to running as a cross-training tool while rowers at Colgate University. The school is in central New York where, during the winter, it snows like it rains here in Portland: Some of my most vivid memories from the collegiate era of my life is of running head-on into driving snow, past open fields that let the wind whip unabated for miles…

2014 Tinkerbell Half Marathon Race Report

Dimity and I are enjoying an #epic weekend at Disneyland for the runDisney Tinker Bell Half Marathon. Three days of meeting mother runners at the expo (hi, Kimberly, Shannon, Julie, Jennifer, Linda, Karen, Jamie, Jenn, Lourdes, and scores of other wonderful women–and one man, whom you’ll meet later), followed by running 13.1 miles through the pre-dawn park and along the streets of Anaheim. It’s been a wonderful, whirlwind weekend, and the only way to do it justice is to share photos in lieu of traditional race report. (We’ll share more anecdotes on an upcoming podcast.) There are, natch, 13 […

Sick of seeing me on the NordicTrack yet?

First Q&A Session of 2014

In this running podcast, Dimity and Sarah dive into the New Year with some new questions, several of which deal with winter or coming back from some time off. The mother runners provide tips for Kristin to help her (and you!) find your groove on a treadmill. They offer tried-and-true advice (a walk/run program) for resuming running after an injury, as well as a few other pointers that have worked for them. Learn how to ease into speedwork with hill repeats, strides, and pick-ups (no, we’re not talking hackneyed lines from our fraternity party days), and when to measure your runs in minutes, not miles…

Two Winners of Knuckle Lights

Our Knuckle Lights Hump Day Giveaway ran when most of country had been sucked into the now-infamous Polar Vortex. Thankfully the mercury has climbed toward (and sometimes above) freezing since then. But to be entered to win, we asked you to daydream about springtime and what you were most looking forward to.

Before we get to the winners, we wanted to remind any gals who are in Anaheim (where it feels almost like summer instead of even spring!) that Dimity and I will be speaking at the Tinker Bell Half Marathon expo today at 11 a.m. on the main stage. The rest of the day, we’ll be at the Another Mother Runner booth (#1206, near T-shirt pick-up), selling our merch and signing books…
