AMR Love Week: Adrienne Martini + Martini Fridays

AMR Love Week: Adrienne Martini + Martini Fridays

Our week of AMR Love concludes as Fridays around here lately have: with Martini Fridays. Adrienne has plenty of love to spread; she just needs some help on the “how” part.

Ten laps around the psych floor at St. Mary’s Hospital in Knoxville, Tennessee, equals one mile. I know because I spent five days there after my first baby was born.

Postpartum depression isn’t a subject that gets a lot of press unless a) a celebrity, like Brooke Shields, confesses to it or b) a mom who suffers from it does something tragic either to herself or her children. Then the subject fades away again, partly because we’re just not comfortable with the idea that a new mom could feel anything but bliss…

AMR Love Week: Kerry Swift + Follow This Mother!

AMR Love Week: Kerry Swift + Follow This Mother!

What’s an AMR Love Week without a special edition of Follow This Mother? When we heard from Kerry Swift, 42 and mom of 6-year-old Brynna and 4-year-old Griffin, we knew she’d be the perfect mother runner to profile this week. Kerry, who lives in Burlington, VT and is training for this year’s Boston Marathon, is running to honor the memory of two people who played important roles in her life: her younger brother Brian, who lost his battle with osteosarcoma in 1995, and her BRF Julie Kelliher, a mother runner who passed away a year ago this month.

“Julie was my sounding board on all things – work, parenting, living in Vermont and often those conversations went on over the dirt roads of Underhill as we ran together,” Kerry says…

A whole lot of Sweaty Bands: Each of this giveaway's three winners will get this stash.

AMR Love Week Hump Day Giveaway: 4-pack of Sweaty Bands x 3

Even our weekly Hump Day Giveaway fits into our AMR Love week, courtesy of a company we love, Sweaty Bands. 

I have a new reason to not cast my children out of my office so quickly when they clamor in after school, clutching spelling tests or bickering over who gets to hold our cat, Miller: They can help me write blog posts. I was all set to go in one direction with the intro to this week’s giveaway when 8-year-old Daphne dashed in and squealed with delight over the Sweaty Bands strewn across my desk.

Living in Portlandia, Daphne was immediately drawn to Love Birds, the pale pink one festooned with birds; she wanted to know if she could have one…

AMR Love Week: Chrissi Lillard

Our week of AMR Love continues—and this story started with an email from another mother runner in Frederick, Maryland named Cathy. She wrote to us on behalf of her friend, Chrissi. “She will be visiting the Princess expo to pick up her bib and I would love it if you could give her a bit of extra encouragement when she stops by your booth,” Cathy wrote, “I will let her know to make sure to go there, she needs to know that everyone is rallying for her to finish this difficult phase in her lifelong journey!” 

On January 31, 2013, a floor heater in the Lillard house in Myersville, MD, set the nearby curtains on fire…

AMR Love Week: Pam Adams

 

Call me a cynic, but it seems like the holidays are more about the finding and buying the things that represents the holiday, rather than celebrating the feelings of the holiday. (I mean, when Cadburry eggs are on the endcaps of the Valentine’s Day display at Target, how can you not feel cynical?) So we wanted to devote this week—which, we realize, is devoted to a holiday that exists only for commercial gain—to AMR Love. We’re going to tell a handful of stories about mother runners who need a boost; in return, we hope you send them positive vibes, inspiration, rah-rahs, spirit, compassion, and flat-out XOXOs…
