Another Mother Runner Radio 85: Feel the Gratitude

In this Thanksgiving week, Sarah and Dimity start off the show by discussing running-related things they are grateful for, such as temperate climates for year-round running, nearby BRFs, and the vitality our fair sport provides. “Running is the time I feel most alive,” confesses Dimity. Then the ladies bring on Amy Little, a mother runner of two who allows runners to give back in a major way: Through the race she organized, Cause + Event in Portland, Oregon, racers can donate to the charity of their choice. Amy talks through how she hatched the race concept and has seen it through to the point of writing checks to 62 (62!) non-profit organizations…

Another Mother Runner Radio 84: 100 Miles in 24 Hours…On a Treadmill

Dimity and Sarah stammer in amazement at the accomplishments of this show’s guest,  Emily “Emz” Toia, who recently ran her second 100-miles-in-24-hours fundraiser on a treadmill. This 36-year-old mother of one tells the gals how she ran ’round the clock—yet kept the treadmill console covered with a towel the entire time so she couldn’t see the mileage or pace readout. Dimity peppers Emily with questions, including ones about bathroom breaks and “output.” Emily talks about why 4:00 a.m. was the toughest time to run, and why she, “enjoys these weird, long runs.” But to kick things off, the gals travel back in time to 1859…

Another Mother Runner Radio 83: 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…

Another Mother Runner Radio 82: Fueling for Epic Races Like runDisney

Dimity and Sarah, along with registered dietician Jennifer Upton, tell you how to dine and dash. No, not leaving a restaurant without paying your bill, but how to fuel your body before a race that starts super-late (or super-early), like the upcoming runDisney Wine & Dine Half-Marathon, or Rock ‘N’ Roll Las Vegas, or a multi-day series of races like runDisney’s Dopey Challenge. It’s tough enough running 13.1 (or more!) miles, so Jen guides gals through fueling on race day as well as refueling post-race when runners might be surrounded by sumptuous offerings. Sarah and Jen (both moms of twins!) also share their fueling plans during a half-marathon, while Jen talks through her race strategy for the inaugural Dopey…

Another Mother Runner Radio 81: Zombie Runs: Get Faster Running From the Undead!

Just in time for Halloween, Sarah and Dimity unearth the appeal of zombie runs by talking to three guests. First up: Bill Ward, the marketing guy for the series Run for Your Life, “a zombie infested 5K obstacle course race.” Bill describes zombie hordes and apocalypse parties, and he tells tales of runners finishing the race “infected.” Then the gals, um, pick the brains of two mother runners, Lori Vickerman and Jenn Sloggie-Pierce, to find out what happened when they got chased by the undead. (Spoiler alert: They both let loose a slew of swear words.) If you’re anything like Sarah, don’t listen to this creepy-but-hilarious podcast while running in the dark…
