    Crosstrain, XTrain, XT: Call it what you want. Just do it.

    A throwback to Train Like a Mother--or actually, what was left on the cutting-room floor of Train Like a Mother. A space thing--not a content thing. (Good stuff, that crosstraining: we promise!)

#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…

Good Enough

As we’re finishing up our third mother runner book, we’re going green this summer and recycling some of our blog posts. This post originally appeared on our site on August 9, 2010

I know I sound like a broken record, but it’s been an unsmooth few weeks around here. One dog—the one we just dropped big bucks on to get her ACL fixed—ate half of an area rug, which landed her at the vet (read: more $); Amelia got into a charter school, which I applied to on a whim this winter—and had forgotten I had until I got a call that said one seat was open in 2nd grade (read: huge decision to make in 48 hours, with no schools in session or teachers around to consult); then her week-long, 8 a…

Hump Day Giveaway: GU Energy Gels + Chomps

Point one: If you want somebody to tell you how something tastes, ask a kid—or at least my kids and their pals. They have no filter when it comes to comments on flavors.

Point two: Swim meets are interminably long. Like five hours is a quick meet. Plus, if your kid is swimming in, say, 5 events, you’ll probably have 10 minutes of action, max.

Point three: I was lucky enough to recently receive a stocked box from GU Energy with three of their newest flavors: Salted Watermelon and Chocolate Peanut Butter Gels, and Black Cherry Chomps.

Add up the three points, and ta-da: I hold a GU taste-testing at a swim meet…
