Tell Me Tuesday: How to Motivate When You’d Rather Not

Tell Me Tuesday: How to Motivate When You’d Rather Not

Dang these dark winter mornings and dang the end of holiday vacation, where I slept in later than I have in years. (I got out of bed after 8 a.m. I honestly haven’t done that in a decade, unless I was sick.) Dang it that, despite the upcoming Tinker Bell Half Marathon on Sunday, I feel unmotivated and blah. Dang it that every sugar cookie I consumed over the past month is clinging to my thighs and brain like barnacles.

Thing is, I am—and you are, I’m guessing—so much happier and content when I sweat. (Well, you are happier when you sweat, right?) Because of that fact, I haven’t bailed on many workouts from the Train Like a Mother: Finish It plan…

SBS Boston Finish Smaller

The One Where SBS Debates Running Marathon to Qualify for Boston Again

Last week, Dimity outlined her 2014 race calendar. While I don’t have my entire year mapped out, I have a few certainties in place, such as this Sunday’s Tinker Bell Half Marathon and next month’s Princess Half. I had contemplated an ultramarathon this year, but that was so 2013, when I was feeling old and slow.

Thanks to either a return to the track for speed workouts; a stronger (yet still flabby-looking!) core courtesy of twice/weekly barre-style classes; or perhaps divine intervention, I’ve rediscovered some speed I thought I’d lost back in 2010. While sub-1:50 half-marathons seem to have left the proverbial building for me, my 1:53 13…

All About Survivor with Mother Runner Monica Culpepper

Sarah and Dimity are delighted to have “Survivor Blood vs Water” runner-up Monica Culpepper as a guest. This mother-of-three runner over-shares all the too-much-information details you’ve been dying to know about the reality show, from how women on the island deal with their periods to where contestants poop. (The locations will surprise—and disgust—you.) In (nearly) gag-inducing detail, Monica describes the food challenge she won by eating 40 meal worms, 12 ounces of pig intestines, cow eyeballs, (“a viscous explosion in your mouth”), and thumb-plus-sized grub worms. Monica talks of permanent nerve damage caused by sleeping on hard surfaces, and lets us in on the reason why female contestants have to pee in a cup 30 minutes before heading to the island…

Bride and groom running

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Heidi Parker

On June 2, 2012, I married my best friend, my partner, my teammate; and subsequently ran the most important mile of my life–in my wedding dress, with the love of my life right beside me.

For both of us, this was a second marriage. From the beginning, we shared a love for running and soon I was introduced to the Reno Tahoe Odyssey Relay Race. My husband, Pete, has run every year since its inception, so when he spontaneously suggested we get married during the 2012 event, I said yes!

Over a couple of beers, we asked the race director for his blessing and for our returning 2011 teammates to be our minister, groomsmen, and bridesmaids…

Race Local: Dimity’s 2014 Race Calendar

Race Local: Dimity’s 2014 Race Calendar

How do you top an Ironmother? If you’re me, you don’t even try. No desire to go 140.6 miles anytime soon.

But that doesn’t mean that I’m leaving that badass feeling behind in 2013. No siree. If nothing else, Ironmother taught me how alive and grateful I feel when I dive deep into things that aren’t a gimme, when I’m not sure how much it’ll take to reach the finish line—or even if I’ll get there. Despite the thunderclouds under my eyes and a few injury speedbumps, I was secretly kind of thriving as I was striving. (And if that’s not the worst sentence ever written, it’s right up there.)

So how do you top Ironmother? If you’re me, you spend time trolling race sites and then get all theme-y…
