What Would Another Mother Runner Do? The Case of the Missing Shoes

What Would Another Mother Runner Do? The Case of the Missing Shoes

Previously, on What Would Another Mother Runner Do (WWAMRD), we’ve debated whether Jessica should run a half-marathon pregnant and pondered the plight of Jenn, who realized she had two right shoes at the start of the run portion of a sprint triathlon. Our latest installment explores the dilemma of Alison, the mother runner of one who hosted our Montclair, N.J., Mother Runner party last spring. Here’s her story:

It’s Saturday afternoon, day before the New York City Marathon. I was obsessing a little over what to wear the next day; it had been so unseasonably warm that I hadn’t trained in cold weather gear and had planned to wear shorts and a tank, but now they were predicting 30-degree weather while we waited to start in Staten Island, then 20 mph winds while we were running…

100 Miles in 24 Hours…On a Treadmill

100 Miles in 24 Hours…On a Treadmill

Dimity and Sarah stammer in amazement at the accomplishments of this show’s guest,  Emily “Emz” Toia, who recently ran her second 100-miles-in-24-hours fundraiser on a treadmill. This 36-year-old mother of one tells the gals how she ran ’round the clock—yet kept the treadmill console covered with a towel the entire time so she couldn’t see the mileage or pace readout. Dimity peppers Emily with questions, including ones about bathroom breaks and “output.” Emily talks about why 4:00 a.m. was the toughest time to run, and why she, “enjoys these weird, long runs.” But to kick things off, the gals travel back in time to 1859…

Winners of Yaktrax Run

Winners of Yaktrax Run

We’re in San Antonio for our last mother runner hurrah of the year and I am, in advance, adminiring the runners of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half and Full Marathon on Sunday. The high is supposed to be 84. Hot, humid 84. Far from ideal running weather for this Minnesotan/Coloradan, and far from ideal weather for Yaktrax Run.

Hopefully these 3 winners of the Yaktrax Runs will be able to put them to good use soon. Here they are–and the most exotic places they’ve run:

Amy Auner: I can honestly say that the most exotic place I’ve ever run was in Las Vegas for the Rock and Roll Strip at Night Half Marathon…

The Most Important Mile of my Life: Lois O’Brien

The Most Important Mile of my Life: Lois O’Brien

Minnesota mother runner Lois O’Brien shares striving for a long-held goal in the latest installment of The Most Important Mile of my Life.

The set-up: 2013 Grandma’s Marathon (my sixth marathon and first Grandma’s). Previous PR: 3:42 (2010). Goal time: 3:38. I followed Train Like a Mother; I was READY!

Marathon morning, though, quickly unraveled. The porta-potty lines were too long. My carefully constructed playlist had randomly shuffled. Checking bags was mad chaos, and I lost my running friends. Then my Garmin beeped and said, “low battery”!!! The hours upon hours that I spent putting together my pace chart to run a perfect race …
