The Another Mother Runner duo: Dimity (in orange) and Sarah.
We love connecting with mother runners, especially in person, and we’ll be out-and-about even more than usual in 2015. We’ll be traveling far and wide to promote our third book, Tales from Another Mother Runner, with more than 20 book tour events from Boston to Austin, Georgetown to Georgia. We’ll also be at numerous race expos, including several ZOOMA ones. Here’s a look at how our schedule looks right now…hope our paths cross!
Friday, February 27, 6-8 p.m.
Little Rock, AR
This is it: Your first chance to get our new book in your mother-runner hands! Sarah is honored to be making a return appearance, along with running legend Bart Yasso, at the Detour speaker series being held at Capital Hotel…
Bethany Meyer is gaining ground on the starting line of the Boston Marathon, even if life is more complicated than the training. Bethany is running as part of the team sponsored by Stonyfield Organic Yogurt: to check out the other badass runners on their team and see what’s going on with them, check in here.

Dimity posted something on Facebook last week that got me thinking about how being a girl can be complicated…
Dimity and Sarah give an audio hug to their guest, Denise Dollar, who founded Heart Strides, the mom-centric organization Another Mother Runner has chosen as its non-profit partner. Hear how this Boulder-based mother runner was inspired to help moms prioritize their health needs after facing her own challenges while caring for her son, who has Type 1 diabetes and is on the autism spectrum. Get a laugh when you find out what Denise Googled after her first run. Find out how you can help other moms, possibly by donating lightly used (or new!) running shoes and apparel. Before being joined by their guest, Sarah and Dimity work flower reproductive parts into the conversation…
What a difference two weeks can make.
While I’d be the last to suggest my bad winter attitude has entirely lifted — I think I’ve merely achieved the acceptance phase of grief —I have been in a hippier, happier head space since we last “spoke.”
Partly, my improved attitude grew out of pretty great 8 mile run on Sunday before last. Keeping my heart rate down felt almost effortless and my body felt as sprightly as a 40+ year old body can in the middle of February. I remain amazed that 7 miles can feel like a slog through a soul-sucking swamp one week and 8 can feel like a gentle breeze through the palm trees the next…
Welcome to our next round of Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday, where we preview one of the 22 essays and authors in our forthcoming book. While our names are on the cover, the book is a truly celebration of this amazing, badass community: not only does it contain 22 essays from a range of talented writers and mother runners, it has miles of insight, advice, stories, and humor from hundreds of you.
Up today is Heather Johnson Durocher, aka Michigan Runner Girl, who is a mom to three kids, ages 14, 12, and 9.
Important Schedule Note: We’re filling in our book tour as quickly as we can…
