    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.

On Patience + A Four-Miler

On Patience + A Four-Miler

 

These past few weeks, I’ve been doing my best to be deliberate with my actions, be mindful of moment, and to practice patience. Why? Not sure. Just feels right.

I’ve started a gratitude journal, as suggested by Kristin Armstrong on our AMR podcast, and that’s going fairly well: I hit it 4-5 times a week in the early a.m. with 4-5 reasons I’m grateful in each sitting. (Although Kristin does 10 reasons daily, I deliberately picked a small journal, and told myself filling one page is enough.)

On spring break, I read and surfed twice (loved it!) and played endless games of Phase 10 in Mexico, where it’s easy to do all those things when I was surrounded by 12 entertaining family members; when I deliberately left my laptop at home (traveling without it is so light and easy!) and kept my phone in the off position; when the hardest choice of the day was fresh mango or fresh orange juice for breakfast…

#AMRinSaucony: Amy’s Big Plans for March

Amy Blake, our #AMRinSaucony, remembers March. Which came in–and left–like a lion. A vomiting one, in case you were wondering.
When we last talked, I had big plans for March. And I have to say that the beginning of the month went great. The running continued to progress in a good direction. I’m finally to the point where I get about a mile out from my house on my little neighborhood scenic route and don’t think to myself, GOD WHEN WILL THIS BE OVER? While I’m not breaking any speed records, I did manage a sub-11:00 mile a few weeks ago during a hard, concerted effort. I pushed through and won…

#155: Tales from Another Mother Essayist Terzah Becker

Sarah and Dimity chat it up with Terzah Becker, a Boulder, Colorado, contributor to the AMR duo’s month-old book, Tales from Another Mother Runner. This twin mom reveals her tenacity and perseverance as she tells about chasing a Boston Marathon qualifying-time in six (6!) marathons. Terzah talks about the difference hiring a coach made for her and the importance of building mental muscle. (Terzah’s advice of having to, “build up your inner optimist and beat down your inner pessimist,” really resonated with Sarah.) Terzah reads from her TAMR essay, and also shares her story of running in the recent Cross-Country Nationals…

In Her Shoes: Going 26.2 Four Days after Becoming a Mother

In Her Shoes: Going 26.2 Four Days after Becoming a Mother

One section Tales From Another Mother Runner is called In Her Shoes, which is first-person accounts of different running situations and tales. We love running stories as much as—or maybe more than?—running itself, but we had a surplus of In Her Shoes stories…if we put them all in the book, it would’ve been bigger than a dictionary. So we’re going to run these every other Friday for a while.
Melanie took on motherhood and a marathon (and a trans-Pacific flight) within days of each other. 

My husband and I had just flown home from Vietnam to Oregon from picking up Benjamin, our first son…

Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday: Amy Bailey

Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday: Amy Bailey

We’re excited to return to our regularly scheduled Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday and to keep the #TAMRTour  momentum going. (TAMR rhymes with BAMR, btw.)
Today we’re profiling Amy Bailey, a mother of newly-minted 7 year-old who lives in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Amy is going to join us on the Midwest leg of our #TAMRTour in mid-May, when we’re going to hit Indiapolis, Cincinnati, Milwaukee, (likely) and Minneapolis/St. Paul. You can RSVP for all the events here. 
My running history: Like many other mother runners, I started really running after my son was born. After years of enviously staring down runners on the sidewalks and trails, I signed up for and ran two 5 mile races in 2007 as I quit smoking and picked up the sport that I avoided as a high school athlete who played softball and volleyball…
