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…

Karen Iddings, 44, ran her first marathon when she was five months pregnant with her now 2 ½ year old daughter, Gracie Marie. “I had already signed up to run Utah Valley Marathon in 2011 when I found out I was pregnant — there were over 20 of us from the Havasu Hustlers run club participating and I didn’t want to miss out.” Iddings, a coach and triathlete BAMR living in Lake Havasu City, AZ, did make sure to get OK from her doctor first. “I just had to slow down a bit and be sure to stay well hydrated during our long runs. I completed the marathon in 4:34:26.”

Best recent run: Surprisingly, my best recent run was a 15-miler in 87 degrees, for two reasons: 1…

Born to Run, Infant Style

Born to Run, Infant Style

I—Dimity—just dropped off our kids at sleepaway camp until Friday. It’s the second year for Amelia (just turned 11) and the first for Ben (8). Once we got them checked in and lower bunks made—we weren’t early enough so they could grab a prize upper bunk—they were done with me. “Can I take a quick picture of you on your bunk?,” I asked Ben, who, after 20 minutes, was outside running around with his soon-to-be-best pals. “No.” This is what I got instead.

I’m not complaining; Lord knows, nearly six days of no kids is good for all aspects of my life. (My main focus until July 4: Mother Runner Book #3…

Sage Rountree going with the flow for stretching.

#116: Sage (Rountree) Advice about Yoga

[Note: We're hard at work on their third book this summer, so today's podcast has previously aired. Don't worry - we'll be back next week with a new show!]

Sarah and Dimity get their “om” on with noted yogini and triathlon coach Sage Rountree, author of “The Athlete’s Guide to Yoga.” The gals discuss the best type of yoga for runners (you Type A’s might not like the answer), and they touch on the hot button issue of hot yoga. Sage shares easy, post-run stretches that’ll open your hips and release your lower back (oh, yeah, right there!). And Sarah feels a release: Sage gives her permission to stop fretting about her tight hips and hamstrings…

Martini Fridays: Socks and Training Plans

Martini Fridays: Socks and Training Plans

Here’s Adrienne Martini, of the popular Martini Fridays, last column until July 7, when she starts in on her 13.FUN journey, and then she’s back to add an olive to our Fridays on a weekly basis. (You can join her—and us—in 13.FUN by registering here.)

Before I delve into what’s currently on my running mind, I have to take a moment to thank all y’all for the kind thoughts about my family’s loss. It means a lot to me. We’re muddling through, as one does.

Back to my running mind. Socks are the first thing spinning around in there. Specifically the socks above.

I bought these beauties—they were prettier fresh—during a trip to Disney last January…
