Victoria is in the Small Moments: Go Get It, SBS!

Victoria is in the Small Moments: Go Get It, SBS!

It’s a funny thing. Put together those little things in life—small gestures, momentary glances, brief moments—and you create hours, days, months, years.

I can say without any hesitation that the small moment that I met Dimity, helping test a product for USA Triathlon, has lead to a mosaic of moments that make me feel extremely blessed. Somehow over time (a lot of time!), Dimity trusted me enough to let me coach her for her first Ironman.

Small moment leading to a big moment.

A bit in disbelief, I gained the trust of her partner in crime Sarah during the process.

As the loyal and loving AMR community knows, Sarah is embarking on her “kind of a big deal” moment this year in aiming to hit a Boston Qualifying time…

Martini Fridays: bringing booty back

Martini Fridays: bringing booty back

My goal for this year’s Pit Run was pretty simple: run it faster than you have in the past. My mind boiled it down to a simple mantra: Earn Your Chicken.

On Sunday morning, I changed into my only-at-races Sparkle Skirt, long sleeved Saucony top (because the wind had a bite to it), and my BAMR visor. No, I am not a paid spokesperson, although I’m open if anyone wants a middle-aged, heavy-set, super-slow runner to back your gear. Attention Oiselle: there is more real estate for your logo on my backside than on Lauren Fleshman’s. Just sayin’.

No matter what you’re wearing, there is something to be said for home field advantage…

Throwback Thursday: Two Twists on a Basic Run

Throwback Thursday: Two Twists on a Basic Run

A little Throwback for you mother runners today; if you’re like me, you’re spending some quality time at the soccer field, so you may as well multitask, right? (Even better, grab a pal so you get some run and chatter in.) And I always like a run with some good strength training moves tossed in; this a new-and-improved version of this beauty will definitely be on schedule at our first ever AMR Retreat in Little Rock, Arkansas.

As I’m typing this, I’ve got neon pink frosting in the crevices in my nails. It tastes like disturbing cold medicine and has already dyed the shirt I spilled it on…

Hump Day Giveaway:  LÄRABAR + Renola

Hump Day Giveaway: LÄRABAR + Renola

Sometimes, a small tweak makes a big difference. Run your typical route in the opposite direction, and you notice that you’ve actually been running a slight uphill on a part you swore was flat. (Yay, you!) Throw a slice of lemon in your water, and one gulp makes you feel like you’re coming out of a spa appointment, not vacuuming the family room for the fifth time this week. Tell your kid, “You get to pick dinner tonight,” give him a few guidelines (one veggie, say), and the omnipotent battle of the broccoli quickly becomes non-issue.

Humm Foods first tweaked boring, not-super-nutritious granola bars when they created LÄRABARs delicious bars that contain between five and ten simple, pronounceable ingredients, max…

Bucolic meets urban: a view across the race field out toward the big city.

Race Report: Grete’s Great Gallop Half-Marathon

This race report is written by Alison Pellicci, a mom of two from Stamford, Conn., who is Sarah’s “cadet” in the Saucony 26Strong program. Next month, Alison will be taking on her first 26.2, the Philadelphia Marathon, with SBS by her side. On Sunday, Alison ran Grete’s Great Gallop, a half-marathon in NYC’s Central Park, as a prep run for Philly. Last Thursday, Dim’s cadet, Kelly Pollock, wrote a post on running the Rock ‘N’ Roll Montreal half-marathon. 

Sunday morning my husband, Anthony, and I head into Manhattan to run our second warm-up race before we both undertake our maiden 26…
