Sound Off: Race Shirts Manifesto

Sound Off: Race Shirts Manifesto

My five vanmates and I arrived at the starting line for Ragnar Napa around 4:30 a.m. We picked up our race tees at 5 a.m.–and even in the dark, even with sleep crud still in the corner of my eyes, even though I couldn’t see the whole shirt through the beam of my headlamp, I knew immediately that I really, really liked it.

Which for me means that I would wear it again—and not end up in my Goodwill pile wiith weeks.

Which is the the exception, not the rule, for me these days.

I should state up front that I do not emotionally attach to race shirts. I saved my 2007 Nike Women’s Marathon until it pitted out—it was light pink— and I’ll probably hang onto my 2013 Ironman Couer d’Alene one for a few more years…

#129: Napa Valley Ragnar Relay

Fresh of running 205 miles (with 10 other bada** mother runners!), Dimity and Sarah tell the tale of their Ragnar Relay from San Francisco to Napa Valley. They are joined by a teammate from each of their vans, Kelly and Melissa. Kelly hits the nail on the head when she describes the 38-hour relay race as, “a sleepover with my best friends I’d never met before.”

During this hour-long podcast, find out what a Honeybucket is – and why Kelly played Candy Crush in one. Then learn why the gals in the team’s second van quickly adopted the Minions’ motto of, “I was born to be awesome, not perfect…

Martini Fridays: counting to ten

Martini Fridays: counting to ten

Fall has officially come to this part of New York State. I know this not just from the color on the trees, the cider in the donuts, and the pumpkin spice in the latte. What really gives the season away is the fact that I can never figure out what to wear for my morning runs.

It’s a great problem to have, mind. And one that I’ll look back on with fondness when we are in the heart of frozen February. And frozen March. And, yeah, frozen April, when I still can’t leave the house in less than four layers of gear.

Thursday morning I set out in my standard shorts and short sleeved top. By the time I got home, I felt like I’d already had an hour-long ice bath…

Ragnar Napa Valley: The Mother Runner Recap

Ragnar Napa Valley: The Mother Runner Recap

Team Bad*** Mother Runner, as Ragnar censored us to be, showed 205 hilly, hot, fun miles from San Francisco to Calistoga just exactly what a mother runner can do. (Which is to say: run hard, laugh harder, sleep little, cheer our guts out, get lost a time or two, live in a porta-potty for a while, and otherwise get our Ragnar on.) Each of the 12 runner had a different experience, and we wanted to capture them all, so we’re excited to share short recaps from each runner. (I—Dimity—put a word limit of 200 on each entry…you can count to see who followed the rules.)

Before we launch into them, though, we want to give a shout out to all of our partners who supported our team both for weeks of training and for almost 38 hours of racing…
