Register for First-Ever AMR Run + Refresh Retreat!!!

With great excitement—including giddy hand-flapping and prancing in place—Another Mother Runner invites you and your best running-friends to our first-ever AMR Retreat: Run + Refresh. (Oooh, even just typing those words gives me—SBS—almost the same fluttery feeling I had the first time I saw the blue, positive lines on a pregnancy test!!) This women’s running retreat happens April 16 to 19, 2015. Hosted by Capital Hotel, a delightfully luxurious boutique hotel dubbed “the front porch of the South” in Little Rock, Arkansas, this weekend will make the AMR virtual community reality.

This on-your-feet retreat will start with daily group runs (yes, morning runs, but not too early since this is a getaway)…

Cheers! Sarah and Coach Christine share laughs at a 2012 Mother Runner party.

#130: Coach Christine and Sarah Talk Tapering and Racing

Mom of two Christine Hinton, the coach who designed eight of the nine training plans in Train Like a Mother, steps in for Dimity, who is taking some R&R. After some frank conversation about the pain of divorce, the two mother runners answer tapering and racing questions called in by members of the AMR tribe. They address Laura and Laural’s questions about overcoming the “crazies” during taper, and tell Kim how to hone mental toughness. They dive into a discussion about mantras, and talk about how tough it can be to shave minutes off a goal marathon time. It turns out both women land on the same side about using a pacer for a goal race…

Martini Fridays: winner, winner, chicken dinner

Martini Fridays: winner, winner, chicken dinner

Remember last week? Remember how I said “From here on out, I plan to finish the race plan as written?” How innocent we all were, back then.

First, the good news. Saturday’s long run was pretty good, with a few exceptions. It was a foggy morning so I took to the high school track, because I don’t trust drivers in dense fog on the sidewalk-less route I take for my long runs. Plus, the track is flat.

I was maybe three miles in when small, helmeted bodies were suddenly underfoot, having snuck up on me through the lingering haze. Then the bleachers were full of cheering people. And, then, a modified football game broke out around me…

Rock ‘N’ Roll Montreal 2014 Half-Marathon Race Report

Rock ‘N’ Roll Montreal 2014 Half-Marathon Race Report


This race report is written by Kelly Pollock, a mom of two from Chapel Hill, N.C., who is Dimity’s “cadet” in the Saucony 26Strong program. Next month, Kelly will be taking on her first 26.2, the Philadelphia Marathon, with Dimity by her side. Kelly ran the Rock ‘N’ Roll Montreal Half-Marathon last weekend as a lead-up to Philly. Next Thursday, Sarah’s cadet, Alison Pellicci, will report on the half-marathon she’s running this weekend, Grete’s Great Gallop in NYC. 

My husband, Mike, and I headed up to Montreal, a gorgeous city with an “old-world,” European feel, without our kids, which is a big deal for us…

Dansko Romy: pair with skinny jeans or rolled ones?

Hump Day Running Giveaway: Pair of Dansko Footwear

I seriously value comfort.

Take, for example, our recent relay race: I was set to run more than a marathon (26.3 miles, to be precise) over the course of three race segments. When I was running, I would be sporting my beloved Saucony Guides. But when I was in “off” mode, I knew I had to treat my feet equally right. My solution? Dansko Professional clogs.

The contoured midsole lets my high-arched, rigid foot relax, while the wide toebox provides welcome space for my toes to spread. The polyurethane (PU) sole absorbs shock, while the 2″ heel gives my sometimes-tight Achilles relief. (Plus, I get closer in height to my tall AMR “sister,” Dimity!) I basically live in these Dansko clogs with jeans or cords at home, so I wasn’t going to forego them during Ragnar just because I was sporting a tutu!

I can understand, though, if that fashion combo isn’t quite your style…
