    Loud.

    I—Dimity—just found this post hidden away. I don't even remember writing it, but so little has changed. Except now my son has a keyboard.

Final Call: AMR Retreat: Run + Refresh

Final Call: AMR Retreat: Run + Refresh

Sarah (and her sidekick and photographer, Jonna) ran all over Little Rock to scout out the best runs for our first AMR Retreat: Run + Refresh in Little Rock, April 16-19. We’ve got all the pieces in place, and we’re ready to roll with the laughs, the miles, the delicious food, the friendships, the training tips, the nutrition help, the yoga, and a little foam rolling, among other things.
Then she headed back to luxurious Capital Hotel, where she took in the roses, her beloved grits, the sheets that make your feet sing.

It’s not Closing Time the way that Semisonic sang about it—you don’t need to finish your whiskey or beer—but wanted to let you know that registration for the Retreat closes this Friday, March 27…

#153: Find Out How to Get Older Faster Stronger

Dimity and Sarah welcome author Margaret Webb on the show to talk about her book Older Faster Stronger.  Margaret tells how, at age 50, she morphed from an overweight, middle-of-the-pack runner who occasionally smoked to being as fit as she was as a 20-year-old varsity collegiate athlete. She shares her three secrets of speed, and talks about the importance of becoming her own champion. Find out how a fox and dolphin pop up in the World Masters half-marathon race Margaret ran in Italy.

At the start, Sarah talks about her recent visit with her aging parents, and how she and her siblings moved the conversation forward about a more senior-friendly living situation…

Martini Fridays: Ten, again.

Martini Fridays: Ten, again.

If you ever get the chance to hit the AMR road with SBS and Dimity (to say nothing of Denise, the backstage muscle and funny bone), I urge you to do it. The three days I spent as part of the TFAMR tour were a hoot, even when they were tedious, as long trips on the New York State Thruway can be. Laughs were had. The world’s best nachos consumed. Needlepoint was needlepointed.

The best part, as you might expect, was meeting so many other mother runners. Really. Sometimes it feels like I’m in my little mountain hamlet throwing words out into the internet voids. But to meet real live women who can identify with a lumbering runner like me, well, it does my heart good…

Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday: Kristin Armstrong

Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday: Kristin Armstrong

We’re excited to return to our regularly scheduled Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday and to keep the #TAMRTour  momentum going. (TAMR rhymes with BAMR, btw.)

Today we’re profiling Ms. Kristin Armstrong, writer of the popular Mile Markers on Runner’s World Zelle, as well as a recent (and oh-so-insightful) guest on our podcast.

Kristin is going to join Sarah, and Susan Schorn, another TAMR essayist, for a rockin’ night in Austin on March 26th at the Texas Running Company. Don your best boots–or your running shoes!—and join us. RSVP here for a free, fun night full of prizes, laughs, and mother runner connection…

Hump Day Giveaway: 4-Pack of Nuun + Pint Glass. Five Winners!

As I’ve admitted here before, our family of five doesn’t have many traditions. I admire the heck out of parents who repeat events every year, like pancakes served in bed on birthdays or squeezing into wedding clothes for a photo on every anniversary, but I’m either too uncreative or lazy to think up something, then stick with it.

But one thing we do every year en famille is attend the neighborhood St. Patrick’s Day parade, dubbed “the dog parade” by our kids (I’ll tell you why in a moment). It’s a charmingly homespun event, organized by a local family with a love of the Irish.  Boy Scout troops proudly carry banners; owners of antique convertibles slowly drive along the route with tops down, throwing Tootsie Rolls and Starbursts at spectating kids; kids dressed in green on bedecked bikes ride  by; Irish wolfhound and Corgi owners march en masse with their dogs (thus our nickname for the parade)…
