    No pressure or anything, though.

Hump Day Giveaway: Action Wipes + Harbinger Home Exercise Tools

Okay, technically, this is Hump Day + 1 Giveaway, but this week is all topsy-turvy for Dimity and me as we have jetted cross-country to the Magic Kingdom. Adding to the excitement: I flew on a red-eye flight, partially set up our booth (#535, btw) at the runDisney Princess Half Marathon expo, then partied with about 200 mother runners at Fit2Run. I fell into bed around 11 p.m., the alarm set for 6:15 a.m. (that’s 3:15 Portland time, people!) to finish setting up our space at the expo. I won’t go into every nitty-gritty detail, but I will overshare this nugget: There’s no time budgeted into my bursting-at-the-seams schedule for a shower…

Bippety, Boppity, Boo!: Special runDisney Announcement

Although we’ve been tossing pixie dust and glitter around here plenty lately, it’s hasn’t been truly legit.

Until today.

50 Perfect Running Songs

50 Perfect Running Songs

We asked (on Facebook), and you told us: Here is a compilation of the songs that are guaranteed to make you move your feet, no matter how little sleep you got last night or how undertrained you feel. We’ll admit: It’s a bit of a mash-up, but the variety will keep you on your toes.

If you’re on Spotify, here’s link to this running playlist.

Here goes:

Girl on Fire: Alicia Keys (Oh, you know we had to start with this one!)
Roar: Katy Perry (We can hear you all from here.)
Fighter: Christina Aguilera (For when you feel like quitting.)
Let It Go: Demi Lovato
Can’t Hold Us: Macklemore and Ryan Lewis (Raise your hands with us…

Sleep, Sleep, the Magical Fruit—and a Special Monday Giveaway!

Sleep, Sleep, the Magical Fruit—and a Special Monday Giveaway!

I’ll just put this out there, and hope I am not alone: by about 3 p.m. on days that aren’t as smooth as I’d hoped, I’m prone to calculate how many more hours it’ll be until I’m prone in my bed. As the kids get older, I do this less regularly, but give me a crappy Thursday, and around 1 p.m., I’m thinking to myself, In less than 8 hours, you’ll be in bed, Dimity. Less than 8 hours. You’ve got this.

If you just did some sleep math, that means I’m in bed around 9 p.m.. Yep, even on I’m-a-rock-star days, that’s stil my preferred bedtime, which makes me, you know, so not a rock star. I may be lame, I may be missing out on Olympic action, I may not know what’s going on on The Bachelor, I may be snoozing while all the cool kids are ramping up, but I am definitely one thing: well-rested—and I wouldn’t trade that for anything…

ZOOMA Amelia Island Recap

The ladies travel (virtually!) from Portland to Sochi to Florida, where their guests Kristin Smith and Jessi Schacht recently ran a ZOOMA half-marathon on Amelia Island. Kristin, fresh off a marathon (as in, 6 days prior!), and Jessi rave about all aspects of the all-women’s race, from the bounty of port-a-lets to the champagne at the post-race party, and even participants huddling together to stay warm at the unseasonably cold start line. The running partners talk about their “very conscious decision” to run the final the miles together rather than beating themselves up to hang with the 2:10 pacer…
