    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.

What a 20 Mile Run Looks Like: 26 Strong

What a 20 Mile Run Looks Like: 26 Strong

The email came into my inbox on Friday morning. Kelly Pollock, my Saucony 26 Strong cadet—read: first-time marathoner—was gearing up for her longest run yet. 20 miles on Saturday morning.

“I’m psyching myself out about it,” she wrote, “I already feel like it is not going to go well, which I am sure is not a helpful outlook!”

I read it on my phone as I was headed into volunteer in a third-grade classroom, so I didn’t respond right away, but my gut roiled a bit as I thought about what to write back. As with any marathon training cycle, Kelly has had some high highs (a half-marathon PR) and some low lows (a 19+ miler where she was barfing, walking, cursing Ma Nature, and hating life)…

10 Reasons Why You Should Be a Mother Runner…

10 Reasons Why You Should Be a Mother Runner…

10. Because you can’t control drivers who cut you off with nary a blinker, and deifnitely not a wave of thanks. Or the condescending reaction your boss has to a project on which you worked ridicidulously hard. Or the fact that there are no green grapes at the store and your four-year-old absolutely.must.have green grapes for circle project tomorrow at preschool. (You were told about it last week, but can’t always control your brain either, turns out.) The world spins, the highways are clogged, the boss is a jerk, the grapes aren’t in season. It’s that way, and you’ve got no say.
9. Because school reunions happen…

Sarah (left, but you should know that by now!) and Molly

#133: Victory in Victoria

Sarah and Dimity welcome an extra-special guest on this episode: Sarah’s best running friend (BRF), Molly. She joins the mother runners to tell tales of the Victoria Marathon. Molly ran the half-marathon and, spoiler alert, Sarah re-qualified for Boston Marathon in time of 3:56:54! But the show is mainly Sarah recounting her strong race, her first-ever negative split in a marathon (her 11th 26.2-mile race). Sarah’s brimming with pride, and hopefully she imparts useful insight and advice for any runners looking to dig deep and finish strong in their next race, whatever the distance.

*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…

Martini Fridays: Ripped it up.

Martini Fridays: Ripped it up.

I can only begin to tell you how much more chill I was at the start of the Empire State Half Marathon, my second half, than I was at the start of the Pittsburgh Half Marathon, my first. This dynamic was also true with me and childbirth. I was wound pretty tightly when it came to making sure baby number one had the “perfect” birth. With kid number two, I could have birthed anywhere as long as that epidural drip just kept working its magic.

I was pretty chill on Sunday for another reason: it was really freaking cold. Forty degrees is a great temperature for running, yes, but it is a hard temp to bear when you are waiting for the run to start…
