    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.

#147: Tales from Another Mother Runner Essayist Alison Overholt

In Her Shoes: 1 Mile x 52 Times

One section Tales From Another Mother Runner is called In Her Shoes, which is first-person accounts of different running situations and tales. We love running stories as much as—or maybe more than?—running itself, but we had a surplus of In Her Shoes stories…if we put them all in the book, it would’ve been bigger than a dictionary. So we’re going to run these every other Friday for a while.
Andrea ran the exact same mile route for nearly 12 hours.
After completing my longest race, a 50K, I found a local ultra called the Mind the Ducks 12 Hours, which is on a paved path around a little pond in Rochester, New York…

Bethany Takes on Boston: Murphy’s Law—or See Ya, January!

Bethany Meyer hits her second speedbump on the road to the Boston Marathon. Bethany is running as part of the team sponsored by Stonyfield Organic Yogurt: to check out the other badass runners on their team and see what’s going on with them, check in here.  

I used to take my kids to the mall for lunch and a carousel ride when they were little. I held one’s hand, buckled two into a double stroller, and strapped the fourth to my chest. I remember the idea of it being so much fun. But in reality it was mentally and physically draining. I have to apply the heating pad to my lower back just thinking about it…
