Follow This Mother!

Nikki Scott, 36, knows intimately what it means to return to running after a life-altering event. This Canadian mother runner of two boys—Marcus, 4, and Riley, 3—had spinal surgery nine years ago after the truck she was riding in flipped off the highway and rolled down an embankment. “I was told I would heal but would be in so much pain that I’d never be active or able to run again,” recalls Nikki, of White Rock, BC. Not only did she recover, this BAMR has tackled numerous races—even ultra marathons—throughout the past several years.

Best recent run: A few weeks ago my 4-year-old son came with me for his first real run…

What Would Another Mother Runner Do? Peachtree Road Race Edition

Just the other day, I was lamenting we hadn’t run a What Would Another Mother Runner Do? column. Then, boom, one lands in our inbox! (Gee, maybe I should have lamented not finding $100 bills on my runs or not winning the lottery…) In this on-going series, a mother runner lays out a true-life tale–whether it’s dislocating her hip during a marathon; forgetting to pack a sports bra for a lunchtime run; or debating running a half-marathon while preggers–then we chime in about what we’d do if we were in her running shoes before asking you what you’d do. Here are all the WWAMRD we’ve previously run, if you want to catch up on the series…

#117: Dinnertime Survival Advice from Sally Kuzemchak, R.D.

Dimity and Sarah kick off the show talking about recent running adventures—straight up mountains for Dim, and around San Francisco for SBS. (The mother runner version of The Country Mouse and The City Mouse!) Then the ladies welcome Sally Kuzemchak, a registered dietician and mom of two in Columbus, Ohio, who wrote the recently released Cooking Light Dinnertime Survival Guide. Like her blog and her book, Sally delves into solving real-mom kitchen dilemmas, such as having no time to cook or deciding what’s for dinner. Sally helps re-brand Dimity’s kids as “choosy,” not “picky.” Several yummy recipes from the book are discussed, so have a napkin handy to wipe away the drool!

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…

Winner Saucony Summer Running Outfit

On Facebook Thursday morning, we asked a simple question: skirt or shorts? Even as an early skirt-adopter, I was amazed  skirts beat out shorts by more than 2-to-1 margin.

Well, call me a trend-bucker, as I’ve recently instigated my own meme: #ShortsSaturday. When my training plans calls for 8 miles or less on a Saturday, I sport shorts instead of a skirt. My reason being: I’m loving some pairs of Saucony running shorts I received as part of the Saucony 26Strong program. I’ve had a long-time love of patterned bottoms (my favorite pants as a preschooler were berry-colored cords festooned with flowers), so the Saucony Impulse Print Short was a gimme…

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Erika Spracher

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Erika Spracher

I started running several years ago as an outlet, a stress relief of life. I completed my first half-marathon in 2009, and am currently training for half-marathon #6 and marathon #2. I used to run for myself and by myself.

Last spring I joined my local chapter of Moms Run This Town where I met some of the most caring, encouraging, and loving mother runners and friends. I also discovered an amazing organization called I Run For which matches runners and athletes with special needs children and adults who cannot run for themselves. On July 31, 2013 I was matched with a boy named Dylan who has Down Syndrome…
