Another Mother Runner Radio 68: Recommended Reading: Sporty Books for Summer

Other than exercise, Dimity and Sarah don’t have many hobbies, but they are both avid readers. In this podcast, they share some of their favorite sports-related books, ranging from the incredibly inspiring (Marathon Woman: Running the Race to Revolutionize Women’s Sports by Kathrine Switzer; Swimming to Antarctica: Tales of a Long-Distance Swimmerby Lynne Cox; and Devoted: The Story of a Father’s Love for His Son by Dick Hoyt and Don Yaeger) to the dishy and gripping (The Secret Race: Inside the Hidden World of the Tour de France by Tyler Hamilton and Daniel Coyle and Iron War: Dave Scott, Mark Allen, and the Greatest Race Ever Run by Matt Fitzgerald), as well as a new page-turner of a novel (Flat Water Tuesday: A Novel by Ron Irwin)…

Another Mother Runner Radio 67: Back to the Start of Women’s Running

Sharon Barbano, a past winner of the Finland and Long Island marathons, talks Dimity and Sarah through the experience of being part of the first-ever women’s Olympic Marathon Trials: from the spectators that lined the course even hours before the 11 a.m. start to horrifying pre-race “test” each competitor had to pass. Sarah and Dimity get this former U.S. 50K Trail Champion to share how she’s continued to find her strong over the years, including becoming a long-distance kayaker and black belt in karate. If you’re in need of inspiration, this podcast has it in spades. Even Dimity’s talk of her daughter’s quest to make state swimming championships will get you fired up!

Another Mother Runner Radio 66: Shiver with Race Anticipation

Recorded when Dimity was mere days away from tackling her Ironman triathlon, the mother runners discuss the days (and hours and minutes) leading up to a starting line. They reveal when the reality of a race sets in for them: For SBS, it’s all about dairy product expiration dates; for Dimity, it’s often not until morning-of. They lament second-guessing elements of training, whether it’s foam rolling, core work, or end-of-run strides. (All fall under the category of, “shoulda, woulda, coulda,” for Sarah.) In their taper-talk, Dimity offers the pearl of, “Keep up on some intensity, but cut back on the volume…

Another Mother Runner Radio 65: Pace Like a Mother: A Chat with Coach Greg McMillan

Dimity and Sarah talk to the pace guru Greg McMillan, the coach whose online calculator is like a Magic 8-Ball for runners: It not only predicts the time of your next race finish, but also tells you what speed to muster on your long runs, tempo runs, and track workouts. In this podcast, Greg gives great injury-prevention advice for newbie runners, including to run less mileage than you think you can (love that!), as well as offers sane words on how to accept age-related slower paces. (Sigh.) And he answers the head-scratcher of race versus tempo pace.

Another Mother Runner Radio 64: Dimity Walks Us through Her Ironman Race

Our most epic podcast yet: Dimity tells, in wonderfully recalled detail, about her strong, heroic effort at Ironman Coeur d’Alene. From the 62-degree swim, to the wetsuit strippers, onto her trusty tri-bike Lyle, up hills and down, a chat with a cute guy named Ryan, to the final 26.2-mile run/walk, that starts with searing pain and includes an amazing shift in mental attitude, Dimity shares it all. (And SBS asks about details Dim would have otherwise left out, such as pooping and the changing tent.) And since 140.6 miles takes a while to talk through (let alone swim/bike/run!), this beauty is slightly more than an hour long…
