    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.

Throwback Thursday: On Stealing Bacon and Turning Six

Throwback Thursday: On Stealing Bacon and Turning Six

Amidst all the holiday chaos—fun chaos, but sugary, wrapped chaos nontheless—I wanted to remind myself (and maybe you) on this Throwback Thursday to steal the proverbial bacon, and not just fly from task to task and wonder where the time and sugar cookies went. 

We have a rule in our house: no growing up on M-O-M. Unfortunately, it’s one of many rules my kids disobey.

So Mr. Pie turned six at the end of April. We celebrated too many times: friend birthday, immediate family birthday, school birthday, extended family birthday. The celebrations were typical, with a Star Wars tablecloth reused each time, too much sugar, presents that were liked (Legos) and were dismissed quickly (anything that wasn’t Legos)…

Yaktrax Run: The solution to snow-day woes.

Hump Day Running Giveaways: 3 Pairs of Yaktrax Run

Here in Portland, Oregon, winter usually involves overcast skies, rain, and above-freezing temperatures. Except when it doesn’t. Once every two or three years, Old Man Winter blasts our usually verdant landscape with snow and ice. Given that we don’t own a treadmill and I don’t belong to a health club, precipitation-covered roads mean I can’t get my run on.

Frozen rain, in particular, is my nemesis. When our older daughter was two, the city shut down for nearly a week; the roads were impassable to anything that didn’t sport studded snowtires or chains. I tried my best to power walk on the double-decker wintery sandwich of snow-ice-snow-ice, but it was sheer lunacy…

Most Important Mile: Anonymous

Most Important Mile: Anonymous

 This Most Important Mile arrived via email a few weeks ago. I checked in with the mother who wrote it, making sure she was ready to publically share the trials of her daughter and family. She was, she assured me, but asked to remain anonymous to protect her daughter, so we’re honoring that wish. “One of the hardest parts of this whole experience is sharing,” she wrote back, “We (the proverbial “we”) live in nice areas, we have (generally speaking) happy, well-fed families. We have resources and good schools, etc. But drug abuse makes folks uncomfortable. As does mental health. It’s hard to find that really good friend to listen and commiserate; it’s a problem that’s not in many families’ repertoire for coping…

What Would Another Mother Runner Do: NYC Marathon on a Broken Toe?

What Would Another Mother Runner Do: NYC Marathon on a Broken Toe?

 

In this on-going series, a mother runner lays out a true-life tale–whether it’s dislocating her hip during a marathon; forgetting to pack a sports bra for a lunchtime run; or debating running a half-marathon while preggers–then we chime in about what we’d do if we were in her running shoes before asking you what you’d do. Here are all the WWAMRD we’ve previously run, if you want to catch up on the series. Today’s entry tells the tale of Rebecca Lee. 

In March, I signed up for the New York City Marathon on a charity entry; I decided to fundraise for Team Hole in the Wall, a cause very dear to my heart…

Kelly and daughter, Carly, looking proud and #26Strong after Philly finish.

#139: How Philadelphia Marathon Was #26Strong

Dimity and Sarah wrap up their involvement with the Saucony 26Strong program with a conversation with their cadets: Kelly, who completed the Philadelphia Marathon, and Alison, who spectated and cheered at Philly rather than running due to injury. Kelly recounts running the first half with Adrienne Martini by her side (alas Dimity was out due to injury as well), including a clever potty-break and reminders to stick to her run-walk pattern. Kelly gives a lively recounting of, “embracing the back of the pack,” including friends she made along the way. Dimity adds to the fun with details of cycling much of the route with Kelly’s 12-year-old daughter, encouraging signs and all…
