Another Mother Runner Radio 98: You Ask; We Answer: A Q&A Show

In an uncharacteristically oversharing mood, Dimity opens this show with a TMI tale that cracks Sarah up. (Doesn’t everything?)  Then, jumping into questions posted on their Facebook wall, the mother runners talk about everything from dividing longer runs into two workouts to importance of “easy” runs. (No, not oxymorons.) Find out what the exercise “grey zone” is—and that Dimity admits to loving it. The gals discuss how to balance racing with family planning, agreeing you shouldn’t ever have to justify race distance or plans to anyone. In telling Norma-Ann when to start running more frequently, Dim and SBS debate whether they “look forward” to a run versus “not dreading” one…

Another Mother Runner Radio 97: ZOOMA Amelia Island Recap

The ladies travel (virtually!) from Portland to Sochi to Florida, where their guests Kristin Smith and Jessi Schacht recently ran a ZOOMA half-marathon on Amelia Island. Kristin, fresh off a marathon (as in, 6 days prior!), and Jessi rave about all aspects of the all-women’s race, from the bounty of port-a-lets to the champagne at the post-race party, and even participants huddling together to stay warm at the unseasonably cold start line. The running partners talk about their “very conscious decision” to run the final the miles together rather than beating themselves up to hang with the 2:10 pacer…

Another Mother Runner Radio 96: Black Girls Run

Sarah and Dimity, two white girls, talk to Toni Carey and Ashley Hicks, the founders of Black Girls Run. The Atlanta-based duo recounts the motivation behind starting the nationwide running support group—and how it’s grown since (including 70 local running clubs!). Toni and Ashley reveal the origin of the BGR tagline, “Preserve the sexy,” and how it evolved into an inspiring campaign. They also clue the gals in on the hair-related issues African-American women runners face.

Another Mother Runner Radio 95: The Polar Vortex Special Edition: How to Stay Active

Dimity and Sarah know this polar vortex has been unbearable for runners, but the mother runners come to the rescue with alternatives to stay active. A body-weight circuit to do at home; pointers on getting optimum results from a spinning workout; tricks on the elliptical to make it an effective sweat-session; plus loads of treadmill tips. (One of which involves Benedict Cumberbatch.) Along the way, Sarah delights in Dimity reviving a phrase she hasn’t heard in decades. At the very least, this extra-long podcast, interspersed with more music than usual, will keep you company for almost an hour on the treadmill…

Another Mother Runner Radio 94: Larissa Explains It All

Still shimmering with glitter—and a healthy dose of pixie dust—Dimity and Sarah share fresh memories from the 2014 Tinker Bell Half Marathon at Disneyland. Then the mother runners welcome Larissa Rivers, the run marketing manager at the GPS app/website Strava. A new, first-time mom Larissa talks about returning to work (sometimes via foot over the Golden Gate Bridge!) and training for her first post-baby race. (An ultrarunner, Larissa is “scaling back” to a marathon.) Larissa takes listeners through the genesis of Strava and its nifty features—which give Sarah the chance to finally tell Dimity she needs to slow her roll on some training runs…
