Mother Runner Book #3: Help, Pretty Please

Mother Runner Book #3: Help, Pretty Please

So we have about 111 million more books to sell until we catch up to Fifty Shades of Grey, and we were wondering why the raunchy series was so far ahead of our humble mother runner series.
Then it hit us: the Shades books are a trilogy! Of course. We need a trilogy. Then, naturally, we’ll be vaulted onto every Costco book table, every book store window, every Kindle screen across America—even the ones whose owners try to hide that they’re reading it.
So Mother Runner Book #3 is officially in the works, and even if our names never appear on the New York Times Bestseller list, we still thrilled to get this party stared: there’s nothing like the butterfly-fluttering excitement of standing on a starting line…

Showering After Running: Rise, Run, Rinse (Maybe…), Repeat

Showering After Running: Rise, Run, Rinse (Maybe…), Repeat

Sitting down at dinner after a long day—or maybe just inhaling leftovers over the sink—you wonder where yet another day has gone. You got the kids to school, then soccer; you got fruits and vegetables in them a couple of times; you found the three-month-overdue library books; you did a gazillion other things you can’t recall right now, but you do remember one thing: the 7-miler that at 5:45  a.m. you pounded out in preparation for your upcoming half-marathon.

Did you remember–or have time–to shower after that puppy? Hmm…need a little time to think about that one?

SBS, for example, realized that she had managed to complete three different workouts without once stepping behind the shower curtain…

Safety First

Safety First

Sarah and Dimity finally found an ideal expert to talk about running safety: Susan Schorn, the author of Smile at Strangers, and Other Lessons in the Art of Living Fearlessly and a second-degree black belt who has been teaching karate and self-defense for almost 15 years. Bonus: Susan, a recreational runner and mom of two, has a sense of humor. Talking about self-defense from an empowerment perspective, Susan shares some small, habitual behaviors that are easy to put into practice. She also instructs runners to aim for the “soft spots” on an attacker’s body, catching, “hold of everything you can…

Winners Galore! (Runner’s World Cookbook; XFinity Band + Lotus Mat; Saucony RUN4GOOD)

Winners Galore! (Runner’s World Cookbook; XFinity Band + Lotus Mat; Saucony RUN4GOOD)

I’ve had a week. Nothing major, thankfully, but just enough speed bumps and blah days to make me really thankful for Friday night and lying on the couch, doing nothing but watching Shark Tank and other quality shows. Emphasis on not in nothing: as in not remember that I was supposed to write a post with a round-up of winners. Given that I’ve stepped in dog poop twice this week, I can’t say I’m surprised.

Anyway, we have a bevy of mother runners to award prizes to—much more pleasant than using a twig to dig out little bits of dog poop from my shoe treads. So I’ve got that going for me…

The Most Important Mile of my Life: Kate Harden

The Most Important Mile of my Life: Kate Harden

St. Louis, MO mother runner Kate Harden, 32, shares a memorable mile she shared with her son Drew.

I’ve logged many significant miles: the joy of my first double-digit run, running through the frustration of a miscarriage, the terribly wonderful first postpartum run. But my most important mile came during a 1-mile fun run with my kindergartener earlier this fall.

We were all smiles and excitement at the starting line, but our enthusiasm quickly diminished. After about .2 miles, he had had enough. He wanted to quit and kept telling me we were going too fast, even though our pace resembled a slug moving through quicksand…
