    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.

Special Mother Runner Contest: This Year, I Will…

 

On Monday, we warmed you up with some talk about resolutions and goals, and mentioned our Nuun Year: No Limits Challenge that starts on January 26.

Yesterday, we fed into that inspiration by profiling Malena, a mother runner who inched successfully towards her goal of running 40 races before she turned 40 years old.

Now, it’s your turn.

Today, we want you create your own intention(s) for 2015. Can be minor, can be big, can be solo, can be a list, can be whatever feels right—and most, importantly—doable to you right now as you stare down the next 12 months. (Yes, we want you to veer just slightly out of your comfort zone, but going from a 5K to a ultra-marathon is no bueno: you’ll likely end up either injured or burnt out—or both…

A Mother Runner’s Goal: 40 Races Before Turning 40

A Mother Runner’s Goal: 40 Races Before Turning 40

The summer of 2013, Malena Jackson, a 39-year-old mother of three, came to a mother runner party in Denver with her pal Melanie. It was the first party we decided that we wanted attendees to write goals on their nametags…a little ice-breaker of sorts and a way to take advantage of the positive energy the events create.

Without much thought, Malena wrote down a pretty ambitious goal: 40 races before she turned 40 in December of 2014. Sarah and I, of course, loved the symmetrical, ambitious goal, and both mentioned it when we signed her copy of Train Like a Mother.

“Well, now it was in print by the famous Mother Runners,” Malena remembers,  ”Now I really had to do it! I decided to count my previous four completed races as part of my 40…

Nuun Year: No Limits Challenge Starts Soon

Nuun Year: No Limits Challenge Starts Soon

As we round the final corner of 2014, we’re going to take a few posts this week to talk about resolutions.

Before we kick it off, we need to make one thing clear: by resolutions, we don’t mean look like Heidi Klum in a bikini or always be happy or never yell at your kids. Or even stop biting your fingernails (typed by the mother runner who is finally at peace with the fact that her nails will always be nubs).

Resolutions, in our minds, are not black or white, succeed or fail, bite or don’t bite. They don’t involve unrealistic expectations (stop eating all sugar) or murky, directionless statements (reduce stress) or other must/can’t/will/won’t directives that ultimately set us up for more stress and, likely, failure…

#142: 2014 Race Reflections from Mother Runners

Even though this podcast starts out seeming like it should be called “Another Mother Swimmer,” eventually Sarah and Dimity turn to talking about running. After briefly recounting a few of their own 2014 races, the gals let other mother runners do the talking: more than a dozen women call in to share their most memorable race moments of the year. From first 10Ks, half-marathons, and marathons to encounters with a snake during a duathlon, the stories cover the gamut. While there are many laughs, you should have a box of tissues handy as many of the tales are moving.

Along the way, Dimity and Sarah debate whether one gal pukes or poops roadside during a Ragnar Relay, and Dimity makes an apt suggestion for what should be on Sarah’s tombstone one day…
