Another Mother Runner Radio 36: Eat Smart to Run Better

Dimity and Sarah serve up a conversation with Cassie Dimmick, a sports dietician and certified running coach in Springfield, Missouri. She’s also a mother runner who knocked 45 minutes off her marathon PR by making a few simple changes to her diet and training so this woman practices what she preaches. According to Cassie, our gut needs to be trained just like muscles and heart do, so she talks about how to be well fueled for a run and how to deal with GI issues during and after a race. Once this podcast hits, we predict a spike in sales of apple sauce. Oh, and find out about Sarah’s new baby…

Another Mother Runner Radio 35: Magic Fingers: The Power of Massage

While Sarah and Dimity don’t get massages nearly as often as they’d like, talk is cheap so they chat with Angella King, a massage therapist in Portland, Oregon. Angella clues mother runners into how often to get massage (budget allowing), along with the different styles of massage and when to slot them into your training. Angella touches upon self-care technique, including using tool like The Stick and a good ol’ tennis ball. She also talks about the importance of speaking up when you’re on the table—“you’re the boss.” (We’d like to point out, however: In her personal relationship, Angella is the boss: Even her new fiancé has to book an appointment and pay for her healing touch on his triathlon-training muscles!)

Another Mother Runner Radio 34: Help for the Skin You’re in

The mother runners invited Dr. Brooke Jackson, a respected dermatologist and the founder of the Skin Wellness Center in Chicago, on the show to talk about skin issues like chafing, sunscreen, showering in the winter, and adult acne. Turns out the good doctor has run 10 marathons, done 8 triathlons, and is the adoptive mother of three kiddos. Sarah and Dimity quickly discover this lady has a lot of insight and wisdom to share about racing, training, and skincare, along with giving Dimity a new favorite allusion for life as a harried mom: a lazy Susan.

Another Mother Runner Radio 33: Ready, Set, Go: It’s Race Day!

Recorded days before heading to the Twin Cities to run the marathon (Sarah) and 10-miler (Dimity), the gals reminisce about memorable race day mornings—including such beauties as when SBS kept gagging while brushing her teeth before the Nike Women’s Marathon. Then the mother runners read the final chapter of Train Like a Mother, which counts down the days and minutes leading up to the start of a race. But the not-to-be-missed moment of this podcast is when Dimity uses the phrase “freeballing.” (She later admits she meant “freewheeling.”)

The Workout You Don’t Want To Do

The Workout You Don’t Want To Do

As we’re finishing up our third mother runner book, we’re going green this summer and recycling some of our blog posts. This post originally appeared on our site on February 25, 2010

 

Post-kids, my brain can retain about 10 percent of what it used to be able to.

To wit: I literally could not remember the street number of our address the other day when I was writing it down for a fellow mom so she could pick up her son after a play date. I always rave about how cute Noah, her son, is–he wears his pants backwards every day and belts them tight around his toothpick waist, and the sight of the pockets in the front just kills me–and I think she probably thought I wanted to kidnap him…
