    No pressure or anything, though.

Hump Day Giveaway: Smith Approach Max Sunglasses

Hump Day Giveaway: Smith Approach Max Sunglasses

So this sweet Smith Optics Giveaway has been swirling around in my head all day long. Approach Max sunglasses. Specs that, like all the other Smith Sunglasses, are just the bomb. And by bomb, I mean barely noticeable, featherweight, non-fogging, non-slipping frames with high-quality, interchangeable lenses that epitomize the word performance. (I can honestly say that, for the past year, I haven’t run or ridden a mile without a pair of Smith specs on me, unless I was confident the run was going to start and end in the dark.)

But thing is, unlike, say, sports sunglasses in the 1990′s—hello, my name is Ah-nold, but you can call me Terminator—the Approach Max also epitomize style…

Laverne and Shirley: not mother runners, but always good for a laugh and a life lesson.

#102: The 2nd Best-of Show!

Because our website was down all weekend, we are releasing this podcast episode on Monday, not Sunday. Enjoy!

The celebration for passing the 100th-podcast mark continues! Sarah and Dimity take you back to their very first running podcast—them being interviewed by a mother runner named Phoebe who poses a stumper of a question. Then Dimity revisits her epic Ironman race, namely the painful start to the marathon portion of the race. Many laughs follow, however, including an important debate about which mother runner gets to be Laverne and who has be Shirley, and SBS being recognized in the nude…

Be the first mother runner on your block to try caffeinated Nuun Energy.

Winners of Nuun Energy Giveaway

Here in Portland, it’s Day 1 of spring break. I’m rejoicing about a week of not making school lunches…but I’m also feeling a bit guilty our family isn’t doing anything vacation-like. Not even a few nights at the ruggedly beautiful Oregon coast, which is the go-to option for most Portlanders, no matter what season it is. (Heck, you’d risk hypothermia year-round if you were brazen/crazy enough to go into the Pacific this far north!)

Only tentative plan on the docket: taking the kids to see, “Muppets Most Wanted” (despite the flick getting tepid reviews). Other than that, I got nothing.

Maybe I should let my kids drink some Nuun Energy, the three new flavors of caffeinated electrolyte tablets with energizing B-vitamins, to make them feel peppy…

Martini Fridays: Dealing with a Cranky Calf

Martini Fridays: Dealing with a Cranky Calf

 

In this edition of Martini Fridays, Adrienne Martini, training for the Pittsburgh Half-Marathon using the Train Like a Mother: Finish It Half-Marathon plan, deals with complaining calf muscles–and a strong craving for a Crayola-colored milkshake. 

After such a stellar run last week, disappointment was inevitable, so I knew a let-me-down 11-miler on Saturday wouldn’t be out of the question. So I wasn’t all that disappointed, actually, when the inevitable came to pass. Which makes me, what, appointed?

On Friday night, my husband and I had driven an hour and back to see a play, so I knew I would be starting the long one with one foot already in the underhydrated-and-overtired bucket…
