Another Mother Runner Radio 76: All About Ragnar

Dimity, fresh off running the Ragnar Relay in the mountains of Colorado, and Sarah host Tanner Bell, the co-founder of the 15-race relay series. Tanner talks about what makes a Ragnar so “magical,” and how he and his energetic co-horts choose relay destinations—including the new trail running editions. Tanner and the ladies laugh about the creativity of team names and outfits (sorry, gals, tutus + our tees aren’t enough to win “best costume”—find out which out-there teams get bestowed that honor). The veteran of 10 Ragnar Relays shares his three top tips for success in the overnight races, which morphs into slightly gag-inducing conversation about dropping a cell phone into a port-a-potty…

Another Mother Runner Radio 75: Sage Rountree Tells How to Race Wisely

Sarah and Dimity welcome back noted yogini and triathlon coach Sage Rountree to talk about Sage’s latest book, Racing Wisely: a Practical and Philosophical Guide to Performing at Your Personal Best. The gals dive into the difference between a race intention and race goal, plus the importance of having a spectrum of goals. The conversation naturally flows into the definition of “personal best.” They talk about the four quarters of a race and why the third is always the toughest (quarters/trimesters: Sarah tosses out a pregnancy analogy). To help tackle late-stage challenges, Sage advocates lots of testing during training…

Another Mother Runner Radio 74: Extra-long Q&A Sesssion

Spurred on by Sarah’s recent trail 10K, the mother runners talk about the myriad joys of off-road races before moving on to answering questions from the tribe. They offer up a solution for Amy, who is debating between slower, heart-rate monitor runs versus running with faster friends, and they urge Amanda to move out of her comfort zone to find a running partner. Listen to Sarah’s theory about why longer races (13.1 and beyond) are like pregnancy, and why Dimity thinks one marathon a year is plenty. Then, in response to Jordan’s question, the gals sing the praises of strength training. They tell Tami what to look for when buying a treadmill, then assure Kimberly race PRs are still possible post-baby…

Another Mother Runner Radio 73: New Badas$ Mother Runner Lauren Fleshman

Two-time U.S. 5000-meter Champion, 2:37 marathoner, and brand-new mom Lauren Fleshman gets real with Dimity and Sarah, talking about the ups-and-downs of running while pregnant and coming back post-partum. You’ll breathe a sigh of relief along with the mother runners to hear a professional runner say she “couldn’t have cared less about” her own running in the first few weeks after the birth of her son. Lauren even admits running, “felt bad from almost the moment that pee stick turned pink.” Then Lauren waxes poetically—but practically—about garnering the most enjoyment and success from running, including imparting the wisdom that, “you have to be an active participant in the mental aspect of your sport…

Another Mother Runner Radio 72: Best Running Friends (BRFs)

Dimity and Sarah firmly believe the best running “accessory” is a friend to cover the miles with, so this podcast celebrates bonds forged by running. Dimity reads the friendship chapter from Run Like a Mother (Sarah’s fave chapter of the book), which contains perhaps the best line in the entire book. “When you keep your eyes on the road, you can speak from your heart.” Then the mother runners serve up a reading from Train Like a Mother with tips on how to successfully run a race with a friend. (It’s not as easy as you might think.) And find out why, some mornings, Sarah and her BRF, Molly, fancy they are auditioning for a 1970s shampoo commercial…
