    Born to run.

    No pressure or anything, though.

#104: Q&A for Early Spring 2014

Before jumping in to answer questions culled from the AMR Facebook page, Sarah talks about her busy running-related morning and Dimity admits to finally “committing” to a workout for her mid-June 70.3 Ironman triathlon. The Ironmother reveals her clever multi-media strategy for getting fired up for intervals. (Hint: It’s a medley involving Kevin Spacey and the band fun.) Then the ladies suggest ways for Jackie (or you!) to like running—or at least like having run.  They talk about importance of the oft-overlooked runner’s upper body, tossing out a bevy of at-home exercises. Sarah shares a plethora of pointers for a lunchtime run, garnered from her running partner who holds down a full-time job…

Winner of Smith Approach Max Sunglasses

Winner of Smith Approach Max Sunglasses

Portland should be renamed City of Rainbows: It is relatively common for raindrops to be falling and the sun to be shining at the same time. Numerous times, it has been raining in our front yard, yet sunny in the back–and our house is not a half-mile deep.

When I recently tweeted about Portland’s latest quixotic weather, a self-proclaimed “husband to a #badassmotherrunner” replied, “I always say ‘You know you’re in Portland when you need your sunglasses in the rain.’ So true on my lunch run today.”

A perfect situation to sport a pair of Smith Optics Approach Max glasses: With two pairs of interchangeable lenses, your eyes can be protected even in low-light situations…

Martini Fridays: TMI + Other Physical Indignities

Martini Fridays: TMI + Other Physical Indignities

Seven days later, and we’ve happily landed again on Martini Fridays, where Adrienne Martini, recounts her training for the Pittsburgh Half-Marathon using the Train Like a Mother: Finish It Half-Marathon plan.

Despite the lovely country pic that leads this post, I’m going to warn you up front that this post contains TMI issues. So if you don’t want to read a quasi-graphic description of things that can happen to the female body, you might want to give this post a pass. Take a minute and give this a good think, especially if you are my father, who has been known to skip over to another mother runner on occasion, if only to see what I’ve gotten myself into this time…

Follow This Mother!

Cassie Jackson, 40 and BAMR of three, started a family-friendly running group earlier this year so that more mother runners could lace up and hit the pavement with their daughters. Cassie, who lives with husband Dan and their daughter, 8, and sons, 10 and 5, in Vienna, Va., is looking forward to running the Nike Women’s Half Marathon in Washington, D.C. later this month.

Best Recent Run: Sunrise 5-miler last week. I was dragging and cold when getting up to get two of my kids to their early morning swim practice, but I knew if I didn’t do it during their practice I wouldn’t get it in…

Sleek, simple, effective: TriggerPoint Performance Therapy Cold Roller

Hump Day Giveaway: Two TriggerPoint Cold Rollers

Right now, I’m not training for anything other than life. My next race–ZOOMA Napa Valley Half-Marathon–is nearly three months away, and my next go-big-or-go-home event (Victoria Marathon) is more than half a year in the future. Doesn’t mean I’m sleeping in or kicking back: I still run four days a week and strength train Tuesdays and Thursdays. While these workouts are laying the groundwork for my on-the-distant-horizon races, times like these remind me sweat sessions aren’t always about miles.

It’s the act of running, of clearing your head, of stretching your legs, of enjoying the quiet (or the conversation)…
