    Born to run.

    No pressure or anything, though.

Ragnar Napa Valley: The Mother Runner Recap

Ragnar Napa Valley: The Mother Runner Recap

Team Bad*** Mother Runner, as Ragnar censored us to be, showed 205 hilly, hot, fun miles from San Francisco to Calistoga just exactly what a mother runner can do. (Which is to say: run hard, laugh harder, sleep little, cheer our guts out, get lost a time or two, live in a porta-potty for a while, and otherwise get our Ragnar on.) Each of the 12 runner had a different experience, and we wanted to capture them all, so we’re excited to share short recaps from each runner. (I—Dimity—put a word limit of 200 on each entry…you can count to see who followed the rules.)

Before we launch into them, though, we want to give a shout out to all of our partners who supported our team both for weeks of training and for almost 38 hours of racing…

Saucony Bullet Capri + Nomad Sport Top = most excellent fall running outfit!

Hump Day Running Giveaway: Saucony Capris and Sport Top

The last few days, I’ve said the word, “Ragnar” so often, you’d think I was a new first-time mom and my baby’s moniker was Ragnar or  my oldest child just got accepted to an Ivy League university by that name! No, it’s the epic relay race Dimity and I ran last weekend along with 10 bada$$ mother runners. Tomorrow’s blog post will tell their (and our) tales and we’re talking about it on this weekend’s podcast, but one detail that might not get included anywhere else is my, um, sleeping attire.

At the last minute of packing, I tossed in the Saucony Recovery Suit I reviewed for Runner’s World a few years back…

You can be training, injured, inspired, not so much, a beginner, a marathoner…as long as you want to open the door to your mother runner world, we’d love to come on in and look around.

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Anna Benvenuto

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Anna Benvenuto

My most important mile was Thanksgiving Day 2012. My sister and I were out walking; she turned to look and me and said, “So, I’ve been running a little. Want to run for a while?” Having been obese for my entire life and never really run before, I was filled with feelings of apprehension and self-doubt.

 We ran a single mile, during which time I said, “I’m dying,” at least 100 times. I, obviously, didn’t die. The next day we ran two miles. It was exhilerating and set me on a completely new path.

I began running consistently throughout the winter, which is no small feat in Vermont in the cold, snowy darkness…

#128: The Importance of Rest

Sarah and Dimity talk about nothing—doing nothing, that is. Rest is a crucial part of an exercise program, whether it’s a rest day during a training plan; recovering properly after a race; not overdoing it on “easy” days; or getting enough sleep. The gals cover all these forms of rest as they crack each other up. This podcast also reveals such personal details about Dimity as her family dinner routine, her bedtime, and her astrological sign.
This is a repeat podcast as the mother runners are running from San Francisco to Napa Valley in the Ragnar Relay. Oh, the irony of them talking about sleeping and resting when they’re coping about 2 hours of shut-eye in the past 24 hours!

*If you’re digging our podcasts, we’d be super-grateful if you’d take a minute (because we *know* you have so many to spare!) to write a review on iTunes…
