Are you ready to rumble? 

Oh. We forgot. We’re mother runners, not professional wrestlers. So are you ready for AMR Strava Prove It Challenge, the biggest, most badass mother runner Challenge yet?

Briana Boehmer with Dimity after the Ironman.

How to Plan Your Races This Year

Dimity and Sarah bring on Briana Boehmer, a coach of endurance athletes (including our own Dimity for Ironman) for the past 12 years who is starting work with Training Peaks, to give advice on planning a race calendar for the year. Briana talks about timing races to ensure you bring your A-game, as well as sharing an interesting formula for recovery time between races. (Spoiler: It’s based on time on your feet, not miles under them.) Coach Bri tosses out a few helpful questions to ask yourself if you’re debating stepping up to a new-for-you race distance in 2014. Then she ends with what we all want to hear: some behind-the-scenes anecdotes from Dimity’s Ironman…

Holiday Half-Marathon Running Race Report

The last few years, I’ve been lamenting lost speed. (“Speed” being a relative term, mind you.) As each year vanishes from the calendar, minutes have compounded on my race times. I couldn’t believe I ever used to routinely finish at or below 1:50 for a half-marathon, and it seemed like sub-2:00 hours was becoming a slippery goal to grasp as well. Taking an honest look, I had to admit my times are now routinely 1:58 or 1:59. Fine times…just not what I’d been capable of three, four, or five years ago.

But thanks to numerous track workouts with my training partner, Molly, and core-strengthening barre-style classes at The Refinery, I decided I might have a glory-days-ish time in my (aging) body…
