Throwback Thursday: A Former Four-Eyes Is Recovering from Plantar Fasciitis

Throwback Thursday: A Former Four-Eyes Is Recovering from Plantar Fasciitis

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 in August 2011. [Read: I don't currently have PF. I kicked it to the curb in late 2011.]

I started wearing glasses at the age of 2 ½. As my mom tells it, she was sitting across from me at the kitchen table while I was eating a sandwich. Each time I brought the PB&J up to my mouth, my right eye would track in toward my nose. An opthalmologist I’d end up seeing a great deal over the coming years, Dr. Ostriker, diagnosed me as being cross-eyed…

Hump Day Giveaway: Three Icebreaker Wool Tees

I envy people with well-organized homes: Once I’ve parceled out my energy for mothering, meal preparation, laundry, work, running, and the occasional socializing, I don’t have much left over for organizing or decorating. So digital photos rarely get printed out and framed; the kids’ toys are a hodgepodge jumble of Legos, Zoobles, Magic Markers, and Groovy Girl accessories; our few silver candlesticks or vases are the color of the bottom of my kids’ feet after they shoot baskets barefoot in the street.

But one task I’m dedicated to: swapping out my winter clothes for summer ones, even if it only means moving my few colorful cotton skirts in front of the charcoal grey and black one or stashing sweaters into an under-bed box…

Follow This Mother!

Nikki Scott, 36, knows intimately what it means to return to running after a life-altering event. This Canadian mother runner of two boys—Marcus, 4, and Riley, 3—had spinal surgery nine years ago after the truck she was riding in flipped off the highway and rolled down an embankment. “I was told I would heal but would be in so much pain that I’d never be active or able to run again,” recalls Nikki, of White Rock, BC. Not only did she recover, this BAMR has tackled numerous races—even ultra marathons—throughout the past several years.

Best recent run: A few weeks ago my 4-year-old son came with me for his first real run…

What Would Another Mother Runner Do? Peachtree Road Race Edition

Just the other day, I was lamenting we hadn’t run a What Would Another Mother Runner Do? column. Then, boom, one lands in our inbox! (Gee, maybe I should have lamented not finding $100 bills on my runs or not winning the lottery…) In this on-going series, a mother runner lays out a true-life tale–whether it’s dislocating her hip during a marathon; forgetting to pack a sports bra for a lunchtime run; or debating running a half-marathon while preggers–then we chime in about what we’d do if we were in her running shoes before asking you what you’d do. Here are all the WWAMRD we’ve previously run, if you want to catch up on the series…

#117: Dinnertime Survival Advice from Sally Kuzemchak, R.D.

Dimity and Sarah kick off the show talking about recent running adventures—straight up mountains for Dim, and around San Francisco for SBS. (The mother runner version of The Country Mouse and The City Mouse!) Then the ladies welcome Sally Kuzemchak, a registered dietician and mom of two in Columbus, Ohio, who wrote the recently released Cooking Light Dinnertime Survival Guide. Like her blog and her book, Sally delves into solving real-mom kitchen dilemmas, such as having no time to cook or deciding what’s for dinner. Sally helps re-brand Dimity’s kids as “choosy,” not “picky.” Several yummy recipes from the book are discussed, so have a napkin handy to wipe away the drool!

If you’re digging our podcasts, we’d be super-grateful if you’d take a minute (because we *know* you have so many to spare!) to write a review on iTunes…
