    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.

A Break in the System—or Ankle

A Break in the System—or Ankle

“Spokane run. Met Hillary. Dramatic finish.”

That’s what I wrote on Strava for my May 1 run. What I didn’t reveal: I fractured my right ankle in two places at the end of the workout.

It was an idiotic, completely avoidable accident at the end of a delightful run. Before I get to the make-me-sob details, let me dwell on the positive points of the run first: Jonna (part of Team AMR and a guest on our most recent podcast) and I were in Spokane, Washington, to work a race expo and scout the city as the base for our fall AMR Retreat.

We set out for a long run along the lovely Centennial Trail that hugs the banks of the Spokane River…

April Showers Bring AMR Events!

Doing a happy dance around here that it’s May, and that we’ve got a calendar chocked full of events.

As we round the corner in the first week, we wanted to be sure you saw our full schedule with parties and expos; we’re going to be running our own little No Limits Marathon during the month of May (+ one expo in June). Here’s hoping our paths cross!

Here’s where we’ll be:

Saturday, May 9
Hillsboro, OR
We’ll have books and AMR merchandise at the grooviest race in the PacNW: the Hippie Chick Half- and Quarter-Marathon. The day before Mother’s Day, this must-do women’s race is a Portland-area tradition and an ideal culmination race for the AMR Nuun Year: No Limits Challenge…

Bright and chipper: Jonna and Sarah on their pre-podcast run in flower-filled Portland.

#159: Get Ready for Marathon Training!

With Dimity out of town hosting a Mother Runner party, Sarah is the solo host of this show. But she’s not alone: Two mother runners running fall marathons join Sarah to talk about how they’re getting ready to start 26.2 training. Jonna Bass Parr, who’ll be running NYC’s five boroughs on November 1 nearly a decade after her one-and-only marathon, reminds us, “when a mom trains, the whole family trains.” In between laughs with Sarah, Jonna tells of her plans to lose 8 to 10 pounds, one of the reasons she’s slowed her roll on runs. Then Laura Baughman, a Portland mom of two teenagers, hops on: Laura is Sarah’s “cadet” in this year’s Saucony 26Strong program, and the two ladies will be taking on Chicago Marathon in October…

In Her Shoes: Taking on 13.1 for the First Time at Age 59

In Her Shoes: Taking on 13.1 for the First Time at Age 59

As a child, I had asthma and my parents were told I wouldn’t live past the age of three. There were many late night trips to the ER for asthma attacks, but I survived them all. Still, I was glad to have an excuse to get out of P.E.—until junior high school, when I wanted to put on those frilly little bloomers and see the boys. I dated a boy in high school who ran track and I’d go watch his meets, but I could never imagine myself taking part in a running event. I was part of the generation before Title IX; girls didn’t do sports.

When my husband took early retirement, I was disappointed because I’d spent two decades raising three sons, who were now out of the house, and I felt like I’d missed that period where I was going to have time for myself…

Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday: Michelle Theall

Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday: Michelle Theall

 We’re excited to return to our regularly scheduled Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday and to keep the #TAMRTour  momentum going. (TAMR rhymes with BAMR, btw.)

Today we’re profiling Michelle Theall, a Boulder resident and mom to an almost-10-year-old. 

My running history: I started running when I was 10 years old and loved the power and strength I felt in my body…I had no idea it was there. I kept running after that, and started winning races. I was never exceptional, but I did well enough to get a partial scholarship to run for Texas Tech University, NCAA Division I. I did that for twelve years, and by the time I graduated from Tech, I was really burned out…
