    Born to run.

    No pressure or anything, though.

Shoes + cake = amazing creation by mother runner Deb. From our party in NJ last spring, but worth sharing pic again in honor of Birthday Girl Dimity.

Winner of Saucony Running Shoes

As you read this, Dimity and I will be enjoying the day at the REI flagship store in downtown Seattle, taking part in Fitness Expo as guests of Nuun. We hope any Seattle-area ladies–or guys–will come here our talk at either 11 a.m. or 1 p.m. (And, psssst: Saturday is Dimity’s birthday so you never know what surprises might await!)

But as I write this post, I just spent several hours going through the amazing entries to our Ragnar Relay contest. We’re announcing the 11 winners on Monday. But I have to say: You all are one creative, inspiring group of badass mother runners. Once again, you had me laughing and crying, marveling at the energy pouring forth…

Martini Fridays:

Do you believe, mother runners? Race day for Adrienne Martini at the Pittsburgh Half-Marathon is finally here! She’s all smiles…kind of. (Catch up on her journey with past episodes of  Martini Fridays.)

By the time you read this, I will be in the middle of driving the seven hours to Pittsburgh in order to run the Half Marathon on Sunday. Unless, of course, you are reading this on any day that isn’t Friday, in which case I’m either currently running or am enjoying a cookie or driving back home.  Time is weird.

My last long run happened to coincide with one of our local races, the Fly Creek Cider Mill Cider Run…

Follow This Mother!

Mother runner and running coach Tia Stone, 35, is in taper mode as she eyes the Pocono Marathon in Stroudsburg, PA in another couple of weeks. The Searcy, AR mom of four calls this her “big ‘A’ race.” Up first, however, is a local 10K this Saturday. “I race often—maybe too much!”

Best recent run: I had a really intense 1K workout recently where I had to talk myself through each set (and there were 12 sets). It was challenging physically and mentally, but I was able hit the splits I wanted and I finished feeling strong.

Running while pregnant: The best advice I could give to any pregnant runner is to not compare yourself to other moms! Every pregnancy is different…

Hump Day Giveaway: Five Headsweats Mom-tastic Hats

Call us sappy, but Dimity and I speak straight from the heart when we say that this community of mother runners never fails to amaze, energize, inspire, humble, and entertain us. Whether in person or online, we are moved countless times every day either to tears or laughter–and sometimes both at the same time.

Like yesterday on Facebook, Michelle Proses Hoffman shared this anecdote:

“Last night, my 5-year-old and I were reading See Mom Run by Kara Douglass Thom. (I’d just returned from the Nike half–PR–yay!) I asked him if he knew how to explain what a marathon is. He replied, ‘It’s when a group of people, who don’t know each other, get together to meet new friends and go on a long run together…

When the best part of a bike ride is shooting the sheep, you might need to refocus.

Tell Me Tuesday: How to Race Wisely

I ran the New York City Marathon in 1997. And a short 10 years later, I ran my second marathon: Nike Women’s.

I did my first half-Ironman in 2002, the spring after I had a miscarriage, to prove that I had control of my body. I did my second in 2004, after having my daughter, to prove that I had control of my life. And then, a short eight years later, did my third in preparation for Ironman.

Oh, and in 2011, I threw in the Mt. Taylor Quad, a crazy race up and down a New Mexico mountain, mostly for a magazine story.

I did my one—and probably only—Ironman in 2013.

Brief recap: 1997, 2002, 2004, 2007, 2011, and 2013 (a double-whammy) were big event years for me…
