Team Maddy on the run

#114: Father’s Day Special with Team Maddy

To celebrate Father’s Day, Dimity and Sarah welcome Rick Van Beek to the show. A Michigan father of three, Rick participates in running races and triathlons pushing a customized stroller containing his 15-year-old daughter, Madyson, who has cerebral palsy. Rick tells the mother runners how he morphed from being a two-pack-a-day smoker to becoming half of Team Maddy.

Winner of Sof Sole Insoles + a Week’s Worth of Running Socks

Winner of Sof Sole Insoles + a Week’s Worth of Running Socks

Greetings from the opposite side of the country: My kids and I are in Connecticut visiting my parents. We’re here for a week, and I l excessively labored over packing. Especially my running outfits. Forecasts call for reasonable early summer temps, but numbers can be so deceiving since the Weather app on iPhones doesn’t show humidity. Short-sleeve “are my kids still chasing me?” tee or another mother runner tank top? (Gotta go for a pop of pink so drivers on super-curvy, no-shoulder roads will be able to see me.) If I wear capris to prevent chub-rub on Sunday’s long run, will I melt faster than a popsicle?

One decision was simple, though: I packed my Saucony Guide 7s with a brand-new pair of Sof Sole Fit insoles in them…

Greg talks about how much time is realistic to shave off a finish time from one half to the next (imparting good news for newbie runners!), as well as clueing listeners in to realistic 5K and 10K results as predictors for for half-marathon success. In his reassuring Southern twang, Greg emphasizes the importance of staying mentally, as well as physically, strong and alert during the entire 13.1-mile course. This podcast provides the details—and motivation—to aim for a 1:XX half-marathon finish!

Another Mother Runner Radio #120: An OB/GYN Gives Advice for Active Moms [Rerun]

Sarah and Dimity talk with Dr. Amanda Hurtubise, an OB/GYN in Port Huron, Michigan, who they found through her informed, insightful comments on their Facebook page, about health advice for active moms. This mom of three and beginning-again runner quickly dubs this show about “the fallout of running,” addressing TMI topics like vaginal prolapse, urinary incontinence, and risk of infection from hanging out in sweaty workout wear. The good doctor also talks about running during pregnancy. The show’s highlight, though, is Dimity over-sharing about her shaving habits. Talk about TMI!
