    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.

#122: Eat Smart to Run Better [Rerun]

[Note: We're hard at work on our third book this summer, so today's podcast has previously aired. Don't worry - we'll be back next week with a new show!]

Dimity and Sarah serve up a conversation with Cassie Dimmick, a sports dietician and certified running coach in Springfield, Missouri. She’s also a mother runner who knocked 45 minutes off her marathon PR by making a few simple changes to her diet and training so this woman practices what she preaches. According to Cassie, our gut needs to be trained just like muscles and heart do, so she talks about how to be well fueled for a run and how to deal with GI issues during and after a race…

A plethora of pads at our party. (Lots of P's...to deal with pee!!)

Winners of JustGoGirl Pad Subscriptions

Salt Lake City mother runners greeted us with open arms–literally!–at our party on Tuesday night in that lovely city. In front of about 175 gals, Dimity explained as she often does, that in our tribe, “no question is too basic; no question is too much information–TMI.” This is our frequent preamble into talking about JustGoGirl pads, which were designed by an active mom of five who was fed up with “athletic leakage.”

Sure, there are some twitters in the audience, but incontinence is no laughing matter, and we are pleased to present these pads as a solution to mother runners that is both effective and modest…

Martini Fridays: Like I Asked Five Minutes Ago

Martini Fridays: Like I Asked Five Minutes Ago

 

So far August is not covering itself in glory.

This has long been my least favorite month. It’s usually the hottest, for starters, and I’m much better at pushing through the 20 degree days than I am the 80 degree ones. It’s also the time when summer vacation is starting to wear on everyone’s nerves. My kids still have a month or so before school starts—they don’t get out until late June and don’t go back until just after Labor Day—but my classes will start in two weeks and I need to get on top of syllabi and work email. By the third week in August, I’ll fully turn into Yelling Mommy, who can be set off with the slightest eye roll…

10 Secrets to a Successful Long Run

10 Secrets to a Successful 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 August 23, 2010

Just call me the Britney Spears of running as, ooops, I did it again: Ran longer than intended. Got myself all turned around in a hilly, deserted cemetery and ended up running 20.5 miles instead of scheduled 18. Yet I felt great on the run and afterward. It got me thinking about what I’d done so I could repeat it on other go-long forays leading up to the Portland Marathon. Here are my top 10 secrets to successful long runs:

#1: Ate well and didn’t get parched the day before…
