    Loud.

    I—Dimity—just found this post hidden away. I don't even remember writing it, but so little has changed. Except now my son has a keyboard.

Hump Day Giveaway: TriggerPoint NANO Foot Rollers

Hump Day Giveaway: TriggerPoint NANO Foot Rollers

I’m no podiatrist—or philosopher who can wax on beautifully about feet and how they root you to the earth—but I do know this: Your feet have to be 100% healthy for running to even stand a chance in your body. (Lord, how I, three-time stress fracturist, Morton’s Neuroma host, bunion sufferer, plantar plate strain recoverer, know that.)

Because here’s the deal. Your body? It’s a kinetic chain. What happens in your second metatarsal can influence how your left hip rotates. Or the height of your foot’s arch can influence how much of an arch your lower back has. Or a bad bunion can influence how you swing your arms…

A Break in the System—or Ankle

A Break in the System—or Ankle

“Spokane run. Met Hillary. Dramatic finish.”

That’s what I wrote on Strava for my May 1 run. What I didn’t reveal: I fractured my right ankle in two places at the end of the workout.

It was an idiotic, completely avoidable accident at the end of a delightful run. Before I get to the make-me-sob details, let me dwell on the positive points of the run first: Jonna (part of Team AMR and a guest on our most recent podcast) and I were in Spokane, Washington, to work a race expo and scout the city as the base for our fall AMR Retreat.

We set out for a long run along the lovely Centennial Trail that hugs the banks of the Spokane River…

April Showers Bring AMR Events!

Doing a happy dance around here that it’s May, and that we’ve got a calendar chocked full of events.

As we round the corner in the first week, we wanted to be sure you saw our full schedule with parties and expos; we’re going to be running our own little No Limits Marathon during the month of May (+ one expo in June). Here’s hoping our paths cross!

Here’s where we’ll be:

Saturday, May 9
Hillsboro, OR
We’ll have books and AMR merchandise at the grooviest race in the PacNW: the Hippie Chick Half- and Quarter-Marathon. The day before Mother’s Day, this must-do women’s race is a Portland-area tradition and an ideal culmination race for the AMR Nuun Year: No Limits Challenge…

Bright and chipper: Jonna and Sarah on their pre-podcast run in flower-filled Portland.

#159: Get Ready for Marathon Training!

With Dimity out of town hosting a Mother Runner party, Sarah is the solo host of this show. But she’s not alone: Two mother runners running fall marathons join Sarah to talk about how they’re getting ready to start 26.2 training. Jonna Bass Parr, who’ll be running NYC’s five boroughs on November 1 nearly a decade after her one-and-only marathon, reminds us, “when a mom trains, the whole family trains.” In between laughs with Sarah, Jonna tells of her plans to lose 8 to 10 pounds, one of the reasons she’s slowed her roll on runs. Then Laura Baughman, a Portland mom of two teenagers, hops on: Laura is Sarah’s “cadet” in this year’s Saucony 26Strong program, and the two ladies will be taking on Chicago Marathon in October…

In Her Shoes: Taking on 13.1 for the First Time at Age 59

In Her Shoes: Taking on 13.1 for the First Time at Age 59

As a child, I had asthma and my parents were told I wouldn’t live past the age of three. There were many late night trips to the ER for asthma attacks, but I survived them all. Still, I was glad to have an excuse to get out of P.E.—until junior high school, when I wanted to put on those frilly little bloomers and see the boys. I dated a boy in high school who ran track and I’d go watch his meets, but I could never imagine myself taking part in a running event. I was part of the generation before Title IX; girls didn’t do sports.

When my husband took early retirement, I was disappointed because I’d spent two decades raising three sons, who were now out of the house, and I felt like I’d missed that period where I was going to have time for myself…
