New Column: Martini Fridays

Note from Dimity #1: Welcome to Martini Fridays, a new AMR column where one mother runner and writer—Adrienne Martini—is going to chronicle her training for her first half-marathon. Although Adrienne is kind of new to running, she’s hardly new to writing: among other things she’s written Hillbilly Gothic: A Memoir of Madness and Motherhood and Sweater Quest: My Year of Knitting Dangerously. Based on her first column, it’s going to be a fun ride (insert bad olive joke here).

Note from Dimity #2: You are not experiencing deja vu. If you thought you might have seen this already, you have…

Florida BAMR Mindy Artze, who describes herself as “a single mom on a mission to get healthy,” is looking forward to racing again after dealing with some medical issues in late 2013. She’s especially excited about a Feb. 15 event that’s going to be, well, a little muddy. She and a friend are participating in the Reebok Spartan Race Special Ops Spartan Race Tampa Sprint. “It’s going to be amazing. I am not sure that I have what it takes, but I am ready to give it EVERYTHING I have,” says Mindy, 39, mom to 10-year-old son Bryce.

Best recent run: The Flavor Run. My son and I got to be “Flavor Fairies” and sprinkle color on people…

Hump Day Running Giveaway: Two Entries to ZOOMA Women’s Half-Marathon

While Dimity and I are speaking, selling, and racing amidst the pixie dust at Tinker Bell this weekend on the West Coast, the running party on the opposite side of the country is happening in Amelia Island, Florida: ZOOMA kicks off its 2014 women’s half-marathon series at the Ritz-Carlton. (Fancy-schmancy!)

Dimity and I know first-hand what amazing race weekends ZOOMA hosts: In March 2010, we launched Run Like a Mother at ZOOMA’s Austin race, and we’ve taken part in the majority of ZOOMA events since then–Annapolis; Cape Cod; and Chicago. We’re excited to head to the new ZOOMA half this June–Napa Valley…

Tell Me Tuesday: How to Motivate When You’d Rather Not

Tell Me Tuesday: How to Motivate When You’d Rather Not

Dang these dark winter mornings and dang the end of holiday vacation, where I slept in later than I have in years. (I got out of bed after 8 a.m. I honestly haven’t done that in a decade, unless I was sick.) Dang it that, despite the upcoming Tinker Bell Half Marathon on Sunday, I feel unmotivated and blah. Dang it that every sugar cookie I consumed over the past month is clinging to my thighs and brain like barnacles.

Thing is, I am—and you are, I’m guessing—so much happier and content when I sweat. (Well, you are happier when you sweat, right?) Because of that fact, I haven’t bailed on many workouts from the Train Like a Mother: Finish It plan…

SBS Boston Finish Smaller

The One Where SBS Debates Running Marathon to Qualify for Boston Again

Last week, Dimity outlined her 2014 race calendar. While I don’t have my entire year mapped out, I have a few certainties in place, such as this Sunday’s Tinker Bell Half Marathon and next month’s Princess Half. I had contemplated an ultramarathon this year, but that was so 2013, when I was feeling old and slow.

Thanks to either a return to the track for speed workouts; a stronger (yet still flabby-looking!) core courtesy of twice/weekly barre-style classes; or perhaps divine intervention, I’ve rediscovered some speed I thought I’d lost back in 2010. While sub-1:50 half-marathons seem to have left the proverbial building for me, my 1:53 13…
