    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.

Hump Day Giveaway: Smith Pivlock Asana

Although we’re pretty much immersed in darkness from 6:00 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. these days, the Colorado sun still does not disappoint. Bright and intense, it makes me feel like I’ll be ready to audition for the California raisins before I’m 50.
I often quote a statistic I heard somewhere, sometime (or read somewhere, sometime) that Colorado has over 300 days of sunshine a year. (The Colorado Climate Center explains this isn’t quite true, but adds the Denver area has only 30-40 completely overcast days a year. My translation: 300+ days of sunshine!)
Which means I’m pretty much always wearing sunglasses…

Erica and her massive PR finishing time.

What Would Another Mother Runner Do: Marathon PR v. BQ?

We haven’t had a recent installment of this series of What Would Another Mother Runner Do scenarios in a while–and we’ve missed it. So when Erica Richards, a 49-year-old mother runner of two in New Hampshire, told us about her recent marathon–and her ruminations since–we knew we had to feature her story. 

In 2010, Erica  ran her first marathon, the Baystate Marathon. After that, she’d  joke she’d be 65 by the time she qualified for Boston, but in 2012, she ran her first sub-2:00 half-marathon followed by a sub-25 minute 5K. According her trusty friend, the McMillan Pace Calculator, she could run a 4:04-4:10 marathon…

How a Positive Attitude Affects Running

About 10 minutes into recording our podcast with Olympic medalist Deena Kastor, who is on an amazing streak of race successes, I asked her to what she attributes her continued strength. Deena’s response:

“It sounds a little hokey to say that happiness has helped elevate me the past year, but I am extraordinarily happy with my life and with my running and I think because of that, I have this great momentum going. I feel I’m always an optimistic and upbeat person, but I have really cut out anything in my life—there is nothing on my calendar that doesn’t make me smile,” said Deena, who finished the NYC Marathon strong yesterday in 2:33:18, the 11th overall woman in a top-notch field of international athletes…

Back To Where It Began: 1997 New York City Marathon

Back To Where It Began: 1997 New York City Marathon

So back during my recent staycation, I found my race report from the 1997 New York City Marathon (the first one ever to hit the Internets back then? Maybe I should’ve trademarked it…). I emailed it to about 15 pals, including Sarah, and thought I’d share the gem with you on Marathon Morning in NYC; this very special race was where I found my running legs—and identity.

*****

Since I know you all were waiting for this: My official 1997 Marathon report.

Two words: wet and AWESOME!

What a rush coming over the Verranzano Bridge. Wind in my face, water below my feet, 29,000 of my closest friends running along side me…

Mammoth Lakes, California, 2010: Dimity (yellow) and Sarah flank (read: tower over!) two-time Olympian Deena Kastor.

#134: Marathoner, Medalist, Mother: Deena Kastor

Dimity and Sarah are delighted to be joined by Deena Kastor, a mother runner who wears myriad hats, including 2004 Olympics bronze medalist in the marathon, American women’s record holder in the marathon (2:19:36), avid cook/baker, and mother of a pre-school daughter. Deena talked with the gals a week before she headed to New York City to run 26.2 miles through the five boroughs, site of her first marathon more than a decade ago. Deena shares tips for success running NYC Marathon. Proving she’s getting #FasterAsaMasters, Deena talks through her run at the Rock ‘N’ Roll Philadelphia half-marathon, in which she set a new World Masters Half-Marathon record (1:09:39) by 20 seconds…
