    Crosstrain, XTrain, XT: Call it what you want. Just do it.

Another Mother Runner Radio 74: Extra-long Q&A Sesssion

Spurred on by Sarah’s recent trail 10K, the mother runners talk about the myriad joys of off-road races before moving on to answering questions from the tribe. They offer up a solution for Amy, who is debating between slower, heart-rate monitor runs versus running with faster friends, and they urge Amanda to move out of her comfort zone to find a running partner. Listen to Sarah’s theory about why longer races (13.1 and beyond) are like pregnancy, and why Dimity thinks one marathon a year is plenty. Then, in response to Jordan’s question, the gals sing the praises of strength training. They tell Tami what to look for when buying a treadmill, then assure Kimberly race PRs are still possible post-baby…

Another Mother Runner Radio 73: New Badas$ Mother Runner Lauren Fleshman

Two-time U.S. 5000-meter Champion, 2:37 marathoner, and brand-new mom Lauren Fleshman gets real with Dimity and Sarah, talking about the ups-and-downs of running while pregnant and coming back post-partum. You’ll breathe a sigh of relief along with the mother runners to hear a professional runner say she “couldn’t have cared less about” her own running in the first few weeks after the birth of her son. Lauren even admits running, “felt bad from almost the moment that pee stick turned pink.” Then Lauren waxes poetically—but practically—about garnering the most enjoyment and success from running, including imparting the wisdom that, “you have to be an active participant in the mental aspect of your sport…

Another Mother Runner Radio 72: Best Running Friends (BRFs)

Dimity and Sarah firmly believe the best running “accessory” is a friend to cover the miles with, so this podcast celebrates bonds forged by running. Dimity reads the friendship chapter from Run Like a Mother (Sarah’s fave chapter of the book), which contains perhaps the best line in the entire book. “When you keep your eyes on the road, you can speak from your heart.” Then the mother runners serve up a reading from Train Like a Mother with tips on how to successfully run a race with a friend. (It’s not as easy as you might think.) And find out why, some mornings, Sarah and her BRF, Molly, fancy they are auditioning for a 1970s shampoo commercial…

Another Mother Runner Radio 71: Weight, Weight…: Running and Weight Management

Sarah and Dimity have heard from countless frustrated mother runners who have seen the number on the scale creep up instead of down while training for a half- or full marathon. So the gals talk to two guests about keeping weight in check while running. First up: sports dietician (and mother of two) Jackie Dikos, who talks about how to find a better balance that’ll make you feel satisfied, not deprived. Jackie also emphasizes the importance of “redefining rewards” for effort. Then the gals gab with Christy Zuzelo, another mother runner of two, but she’s cycled through 60-pound weight loss (and gain) three times…

Another Mother Runner Radio 70: Inaugural Call-In Show

Sarah and Dimity decided to go all Click and Clack (from “Car Talk”), and have gals call in on Skype to chat and get answers. All the questions deal with marathon training: Mom of six Sarah wants to know how to build speed as well as endurance; Cyndie wonders how to work around an injury; and novice marathoner Julie wants to know the pros and cons of doing an extra-long (26 miles!) training run. (The gals talk her out of that one.) Phoebe, the final caller (Skyper?), introduces a new word into the mother runner lexicon: “mojo-tivation.”
