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…

Another Mother Runner Radio 71: Weight, Weight…: Running and Weight Management

Sarah and Dimity have heard from countless frustrated mother runners who have seen the number on the scale creep up instead of down while training for a half- or full marathon. So the gals talk to two guests about keeping weight in check while running. First up: sports dietician (and mother of two) Jackie Dikos, who talks about how to find a better balance that’ll make you feel satisfied, not deprived. Jackie also emphasizes the importance of “redefining rewards” for effort. Then the gals gab with Christy Zuzelo, another mother runner of two, but she’s cycled through 60-pound weight loss (and gain) three times…

Another Mother Runner Radio 70: Inaugural Call-In Show

Sarah and Dimity decided to go all Click and Clack (from “Car Talk”), and have gals call in on Skype to chat and get answers. All the questions deal with marathon training: Mom of six Sarah wants to know how to build speed as well as endurance; Cyndie wonders how to work around an injury; and novice marathoner Julie wants to know the pros and cons of doing an extra-long (26 miles!) training run. (The gals talk her out of that one.) Phoebe, the final caller (Skyper?), introduces a new word into the mother runner lexicon: “mojo-tivation.”

Another Mother Runner Radio 69: A Conversation about Feet and Toes

Perfect timing: Dimity’s feet are extra-gnarly thanks to doing the Ironman, so the mother runners welcome Jane Andersen, a podiatrist in private practice Chapel Hill, N.C., to talk all things feet. All three gals have big paws, so they start by talking about the importance of having roomy-enough shoes—and, perhaps surprisingly, big-enough socks to give feet and toes room enough to spread while running. Things get a bit yucky with discussion on the best ways to cut toenails, remove calluses, and lance yucky blood blisters under toenails. (Ew!) But the ladies work the laughs, so don’t shy away…

Another Mother Runner Radio 68: Recommended Reading: Sporty Books for Summer

Other than exercise, Dimity and Sarah don’t have many hobbies, but they are both avid readers. In this podcast, they share some of their favorite sports-related books, ranging from the incredibly inspiring (Marathon Woman: Running the Race to Revolutionize Women’s Sports by Kathrine Switzer; Swimming to Antarctica: Tales of a Long-Distance Swimmerby Lynne Cox; and Devoted: The Story of a Father’s Love for His Son by Dick Hoyt and Don Yaeger) to the dishy and gripping (The Secret Race: Inside the Hidden World of the Tour de France by Tyler Hamilton and Daniel Coyle and Iron War: Dave Scott, Mark Allen, and the Greatest Race Ever Run by Matt Fitzgerald), as well as a new page-turner of a novel (Flat Water Tuesday: A Novel by Ron Irwin)…
