The Most Important Mile of My Life: Taylor Bell

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Taylor Bell

In March 2010, I was blessed with my first child.

Three days after he was born, he began seizing and was diagnosed with a brain bleed and was admitted to PICU.  One day later, I developed a massive blood clot from my hip to my ankle and was admitted to another hospital.

We were both told it was a miracle we were both alive.

Thankfully, he recovered fully with no residual damage. I had surgery to remove the clot and was diagnosed with May Thurner Syndrome. I had run my last marathon in 2008 before getting pregnant, and my last half in 2009 when I was 24 weeks pregnant, so I wasn’t sure I’d ever see another finish line…

My Most Important Mile: Denise Collins

My Most Important Mile: Denise Collins

My most important mile ran has to be the very first one I ever ran.

I became a runner back in February 2010. I had been battling post-partum-turned-real-depression and medicine was not working. I had so much love and support from my husband (and kids), but I never felt so alone. A friend recommended that I try running. I was not a runner.

I had zero interest. At the same time, I also had nothing else to lose.

I laced up late one evening in my black Converse. As my feet struck the pavement, something inside of me ignited. Everything that was weighing me down—and I mean everything—came out as my feet smashed the road…

Winners of runDisney Princess Entries, Plus Survey Reminder

As I started writing this post, I tweeted I was choosing the winners of our runDisney Princess Half-Marathon giveaway. The epic prize package–for two separate winners–includes entry to the February race; a two-night hotel stay at Walt Disney World Resort; and a 2-Day Magic Your Way® with Park Hopper® Option theme park ticket. Kristen tweeted me back, “what a fun post- Christmas miracle gift that would be !!!!!,” making me feel like a Santa-Runner.

So, ho, ho, ho: Here are the randomly chosen winners, and their favorite Disney characters. (Don’t know if they’ll dress like them in the race, but we’re hoping they sport a costume…

Reflections on 2013 Races

Reflections on 2013 Races

For the second year in a row, the mother runners look back on the races they ran in the past 12 months. But this time they added a new beat to the race-reflections show: They interspersed songs that reminded them of their races, including the Ragnar Relay D.C., Disney Princess Half Marathon, and, of course, Dimity’s Ironman, among others competitive events. The gals share never-before-aired race memories, including Sarah recounting her Ragnar crush (find out why she dubbed him, “Charles Manson,” not your run-of-the-mill term of endearment). But before all that zaniness, Hear the gals talk—at length—about frozen fog…

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Elizabeth Boyle

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Elizabeth Boyle

A year ago, my dear friend Michelle casually asked me  what I wanted to do to celebrate my upcoming 40th birthday. Hmmm, I wondered, I hadn’t really thought of it much yet. Little did she or I know what her question was going to inspire!

That weekend, my husband and two young sons were traveling to camp for the weekend.  Just love those road trip
conversations…such precious time to enjoy sharing thoughts and ideas. I shared this 40th birthday conversation with my husband and the answer came to me so easily…

I was going to run 40 miles for my forthieth birthday.

Wow. There it was…
