A Runner’s Parable: Saturday’s Long Run

A Runner’s Parable: Saturday’s Long Run

As we’re finishing up our third mother runner book, we’re going green this summer and recycling some of our blog posts. This post originally appeared on our site on March 15, 2011

For me, Saturday’s long run felt like a living parable. No, I wasn’t a tortoise, a crow, or a prodigal offspring. My tale felt like one about a mentor who inspires a fledgling, who then surpasses the guide without even realizing her own capabilities. (There’s a Grasshopper in there somewhere…) In my version of the story, I’m the mentor who almost got dusted, yet I hung on to a shred of wisdom I should have imparted…

Follow This Mother!

Follow This Mother!

A stand-out hurdler in high school, as well as a collegiate runner, Maine mother runner Carrie McEneaney, 37, returned to running in 2011 after having her second child. These days you’ll find Carrie, an avid baker, running a variety of distances, including several summer races. She’s signed on for the Kennebec River Rail Trail Half Marathon this coming weekend, Bath Heritage Days 5-Miler on July 4—“and maybe the MDI Marathon on October 19,” she says.

Best recent run: I’ve been lucky and had a good string of great runs. I think having a positive attitude helps with that. My last 13-miler of this training cycle was a nearly perfectly executed progression run where I got faster every mile…

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Jessica Pinkall

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Jessica Pinkall

I was not born into a family of runners. As a matter of fact, I grew up hating to run. I played numerous other sports as a child: basketball, softball, volleyball, and gymnastics (my height got in the way of that one) and ended my high school career on the dance team. I had, and probably still do, the worst form when running.

My enjoyment of running was found when I participated in a local radio station’s version of The Biggest Loser contest. The trainer I had at that time incorporated cardio into our workouts and a couple times a week, I ran on the treadmill. After the weight started coming off, I really began to enjoy running…

Team Maddy on the run

#114: Father’s Day Special with Team Maddy

To celebrate Father’s Day, Dimity and Sarah welcome Rick Van Beek to the show. A Michigan father of three, Rick participates in running races and triathlons pushing a customized stroller containing his 15-year-old daughter, Madyson, who has cerebral palsy. Rick tells the mother runners how he morphed from being a two-pack-a-day smoker to becoming half of Team Maddy. The father runner tells a sure-to-make-you-laugh anecdote of the unintentional hand gesture Maddy sometimes flashes as they pass other participants. And he also shares a candid response about what he’s gained from the 100+ races Team Maddy has completed…
