    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.

Martini Fridays: How do you spell “Schuylkill?”

Martini Fridays: How do you spell “Schuylkill?”

Like I mentioned earlier this week, the upside to leaping into a half marathon with little time to prepare for it was that my mind wasn’t full of thousands of worries, which had had weeks and weeks to grow. Instead, I was able to focus on just one simple mantra: This Isn’t My Race.

Which isn’t to say I was completely disinterested in the result, just that I found freedom in having only one job, which was to slow Kelly down for the first half of her much longer journey. I reasoned that I could always bail at mile 12 or so if my body just gave up and Kelly would still be well set up to run on…

Day in the Life of Another Mother Runner: Stephanie Diamond

Welcome to our third look at #dayinthelifeofAMR: a day where we hand over our Instagram account to another mother runner and let her document her day. Stephanie Diamond, a mother runner in Mali, gives us a glimpse of what life is like in West Africa.

 

 

 

If you’re interested in taking over our account for a day, we’d love to have you. 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. Please email us at runmother [at] gmail [dot] com.

At the office, in the minivan, on the sidelines of your kid's basketball game, by the Kleenex and thermometer: Nuun All Day should be your constant companion.

Hump Day Running Giveaway: Five (5!) Winners of Nuun All Day 4-packs

In November, when I headed out East for mother runner parties in Pittsburgh and Philly, then the Philly Marathon, followed by a few days visiting my parents, I was going to be gone for more than a week. Having been on more than a fair share of trips this year, I vowed not to make the same mistake I had made numerous times before: running out of Nuun mid-trip. It was especially critical since I was running 26.2 mid-trip. Staying properly hydrated was as critical–if not more so–than selling books or making my connection in O’Hare. The electrolytes (sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium) in Nuun tablets would help slake my thirst as well as help my cells hold onto the water I imbibed…

Saucony 26 Strong: Philadelphia Marathon Race Report, Round II

Saucony 26 Strong: Philadelphia Marathon Race Report, Round II

Today is the second race report of Philadelphia Marathon, where we were lucky enough to go the distance with the Saucony 26 Strong program. The first race report is here.

Sarah: Waking up marathon morning, I am not as amped up as I’d been just six weeks ago before the Victoria Marathon. This is both good and bad: I can eat a dry bagel and banana without gagging from nerves (I still skip brushing my teeth as that would just be tempting fate!), but I also don’t feel fired up. Walking to the start with Dimity’s cadet, Kelly, and Adrienne Martini, Kelly’s running sidekick for the first half of the race, the energy of the starting area lifts my spirits some, as does high-fiving Mayor Nutter at the starting line…

Saucony 26 Strong: Philadelphia Marathon Report, Round 1

Saucony 26 Strong: Philadelphia Marathon Report, Round 1

Today we bring you the first of two race reports from the Philadelphia Marathon, where the fruitions of our Saucony 26 Strong program crossed the finish line. As you may know, I—Dimity—didn’t get to cross it, and neither did Alison, Sarah’s cadet. Thanks, injuries; love you too! But that doesn’t mean we didn’t have an amazing weekend where we racked up plenty of super strong, smiley miles, as Sarah and Kelly represented Saucony and the mother runner tribe well.
Because I had to bail, Kelly had a team of two runners—Adrienne and Jo—step in to run with her. So this race report includes their experiences, as well as some thoughts from me and Carly, Kelly’s daughter, who were her 26 Strong support team…
