At the office, in the minivan, on the sidelines of your kid's basketball game, by the Kleenex and thermometer: Nuun All Day should be your constant companion.

Hump Day Running Giveaway: Five (5!) Winners of Nuun All Day 4-packs

In November, when I headed out East for mother runner parties in Pittsburgh and Philly, then the Philly Marathon, followed by a few days visiting my parents, I was going to be gone for more than a week. Having been on more than a fair share of trips this year, I vowed not to make the same mistake I had made numerous times before: running out of Nuun mid-trip. It was especially critical since I was running 26.2 mid-trip. Staying properly hydrated was as critical–if not more so–than selling books or making my connection in O’Hare. The electrolytes (sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium) in Nuun tablets would help slake my thirst as well as help my cells hold onto the water I imbibed…

Saucony 26 Strong: Philadelphia Marathon Race Report, Round II

Saucony 26 Strong: Philadelphia Marathon Race Report, Round II

Today is the second race report of Philadelphia Marathon, where we were lucky enough to go the distance with the Saucony 26 Strong program. The first race report is here.

Sarah: Waking up marathon morning, I am not as amped up as I’d been just six weeks ago before the Victoria Marathon. This is both good and bad: I can eat a dry bagel and banana without gagging from nerves (I still skip brushing my teeth as that would just be tempting fate!), but I also don’t feel fired up. Walking to the start with Dimity’s cadet, Kelly, and Adrienne Martini, Kelly’s running sidekick for the first half of the race, the energy of the starting area lifts my spirits some, as does high-fiving Mayor Nutter at the starting line…

Saucony 26 Strong: Philadelphia Marathon Report, Round 1

Today we bring you the first of two race reports from the Philadelphia Marathon, where the fruitions of our Saucony 26 Strong program crossed the finish line. As you may know, I—Dimity—didn’t get to cross it, and neither did Alison, Sarah’s cadet. Thanks, injuries; love you too! But that doesn’t mean we didn’t have an amazing weekend where we racked up plenty of super strong, smiley miles, as Sarah and Kelly represented Saucony and the mother runner tribe well.
Because I had to bail, Kelly had a team of two runners—Adrienne and Jo—step in to run with her. So this race report includes their experiences, as well as some thoughts from me and Carly, Kelly’s daughter, who were her 26 Strong support team…

#138: Tips for Newbie–and Returning Injured—Runners (Repeat)

While Dimity and Sarah are gallivanting around the East Coast, they are re-airing this podcast that originally aired in 2012. It seemed fitting, in part, because, alas, Dimity is back in a boot; in a few weeks, she’ll be following the advice she shares about resuming running after an injury. Whether you, too, are coming back after some time off or you recently picked up running, you’ll make good use of the loads of advice the mother runners dish. They talk about the importance of not comparing yourself to anyone else, incorporating walking breaks, focusing on distance not speed, and finding a running buddy…

My Most Important Mile: Leah Gonzalez

My Most Important Mile: Leah Gonzalez

This Thanksgiving week, we are going to run a series of Most Important Miles to celebrate the fact that we are so grateful for your stories, our collective miles that send strength and love into the world, the community that brings us together, and the simple ability to run. Thank you, thank you.

It was a cold wintry day in December of 2009 and I went to the gym for my exercise.  To this day I still don’t know what I was thinking, but as I completed my walk, I thought, “I wonder if I can run a mile?”

I’ve never been a runner, never was an active child. I’d begun a weight loss journey and usually only walked or did the elliptical for exercise…
