    Crosstrain, XTrain, XT: Call it what you want. Just do it.

    A throwback to Train Like a Mother--or actually, what was left on the cutting-room floor of Train Like a Mother. A space thing--not a content thing. (Good stuff, that crosstraining: we promise!)

Three Numbers for Monday: 1 Salt Lake City Party, 13.FUN, 26Strong.

Three Numbers for Monday: 1 Salt Lake City Party, 13.FUN, 26Strong.

Since it’s Monday morning and I—Dimity—am likely still hopping on one foot, trying to shake the chlorinated water out of my ear from yesterday’s game of Sharks and Minnows with my kiddos, we’ll keep this post simple.
Ahem. So Three numbers for Monday.
1. The mother runner party train stops next in Salt Lake City. Tuesday, August 5th, we’ll be hanging with the Utah crowd at Salt Lake Running Company from 7:30-9:30 p.m. All levels and types of runners—even the non-mother kind!—are invited to join us for this free night full of laughs, prizes, and connection. RSVP here—and spread the word!

#115: 2nd Annual Summer Reading Show

With Dimity hard at work on the Another Mother Runner duo’s third book, Sarah is joined by Ellison Weist, her occasional running partner and self-proclaimed, “book bully,” for the second-annual summer reading podcast. Sarah and Ellison reminisce about how books brought them together, then they move onto recommendations for big, engrossing books to soak up this summer. The Portland runners rave about The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt, and encourage listeners to read Tom Perrotta’s The Leftovers before tuning into the new HBO series. Sarah shares Dimity’s two most recent reads, including one that could be a mother runner motto: Overwhelmed: Work, Love, and Play When No One Has the Time…

Winner of His-and-Hers 110% Flat Out Sox

Winner of His-and-Hers 110% Flat Out Sox

On the calendar, last Sunday was Father’s Day, but in our house, we’re celebrating tomorrow. You see: When I booked a trip to take the kids solo to see my parents in Connecticut, I neglected to look at the calendar. Thus, oops, my husband, Jack, was on the West Coast on Father’s Day while his entire family was on the East Coast.

Jack was a great sport about it (as he is with all my travels), and it felt special to be with my 87-year-old father, who has seen better days, health-wise. But still I had some guilt–especially when I realized none of us had left a card for Jack in Oregon.

Perhaps as a make-good, I should give him a pair of 110% Flat Out Sox to ease the pain of his recurrent plantar fasciitis…

Martini Fridays: Hugs, Cat-Sized Bugs, and Other Important Things

Martini Fridays: Hugs, Cat-Sized Bugs, and Other Important Things

 

The last two weeks could most charitably be described as “intense.”

They didn’t start that way. Early in the fortnight, I stuck to my loose schedule of runs. Shortly before I was to head out for interval day—because we all need an interval day even if we don’t particularly want one—I called my mom. She’d called that morning at 1 a.m. Neither my husband nor I had heard the phone ring, and she hadn’t left a message.

I’d talked to my mom the day before because my 80-year old stepfather was having surgery. Yesterday, all was well. Until it wasn’t. My stepfather, a label that doesn’t convey how special he was to me, died during the night…

A Runner’s Parable: Saturday’s Long Run

A Runner’s Parable: Saturday’s Long Run

As we’re finishing up our third mother runner book, we’re going green this summer and recycling some of our blog posts. This post originally appeared on our site on March 15, 2011

For me, Saturday’s long run felt like a living parable. No, I wasn’t a tortoise, a crow, or a prodigal offspring. My tale felt like one about a mentor who inspires a fledgling, who then surpasses the guide without even realizing her own capabilities. (There’s a Grasshopper in there somewhere…) In my version of the story, I’m the mentor who almost got dusted, yet I hung on to a shred of wisdom I should have imparted…
