    No pressure or anything, though.

AMR Traveling Ultimate 6 Kit, Episode 2: IT Band Syndrome

AMR Traveling Ultimate 6 Kit, Episode 2: IT Band Syndrome

In our first installment of the AMR Traveling TriggerPoint Ultimate 6 Kit, we tackled Plantar Fasciitis. In this round, Denise Dollar, a 46-year-old mother runner with two kids, gets some relief for her Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITBS). 

What IT Band Syndrome is: ITBS is a running-induced injury that is best described as pain in the outside of the knee. Not a muscle, but rather thick fascia, the Iliotibial Band extends from the outside of the hip to below the knee, and as such, it’s a vital player in the functioning of those of those joints. The IT Band helps flex, extend, and stabilize your knee during foot strike, and those responsibilities, combined with continual rubbing across the across the bottom corner of your femur, can cause it to become inflamed…

Back to Boston—and Kathrine Switzer Books Winners

Back to Boston—and Kathrine Switzer Books Winners

Back in the day, I never wanted to run the Boston Marathon.

In 2012, Sarah covered 26.2 in Boston crazy heat, and had one of the best days of her life.

In 2013, we were all undone by the bombings—and the attack we felt so personally on our sport.

And now?

Truthfully, it’s hard to say something that hasn’t been said about the race that will be run today.

We’ll be cheering my guts out for hometown fave Shalene Flanagan; watch this 60 Minutes interview if you haven’t seen it yet.

We”ll also be cheering my guts out for all the mother runners—Michelle, Cleary, Laurie, Stephanie, Lois, Jenny, among others—taking on the marathon, and wishing the live coverage didn’t end with the elite runners…

The Portland gals after the show: Santha, Sarah, and Dana (l-to-r)

#106: Two Friends + Boston Marathon 2014

With Dimity on Skype, Sarah is joined in the studio by Dana Sullivan and Santha Cassell, two longtime BRFs (best running friends) who both ran the 2013 Boston Marathon. These Portland moms talk about the journey—months of hard training and several marathon attempts spread out over a few years—that lead them to the Hopkinton, MA, starting line. Then they share their experiences on April 15, 2013. (Spoiler alerts: Neither Santha nor Dana reached the finish line and neither were injured in the blasts.) The four mother runners dive into Dana’s decision to return to run this year’s Boston Marathon—and why, mid-training-cycle, Santha decided against it…

Don't be *green* with envy: We're giving away two more Thule Chariot Cougar 2 carriers this year!

2 x 2: Two Winners of Thule Chariot Cougar 2

Last week, after being gone from my family for five days and flying home from North Carolina, I was conflicted: I craved time with my children–yet after a cross-country flight, I was itching to stretch my legs and get in a few miles. My solution? Have Daphne, my youngest and most adoring child, join me for part of my run. Dear Daphne is the only one of my three kiddos who even asks to run with me, so she eagerly laced up her sneaks and put on her shorts.

As we headed west on our quiet, tree-lined side street, we giggled hard when we turned around and saw our cat, Miller, following us. As with any sympatico running partners, we easily fell into conversation…

Martini Fridays: A Newt Named George

Martini Fridays: A Newt Named George

Race day for Adrienne Martini at the Pittsburgh Half-Marathon is getting closer, and on this episode of Martini Fridays, she meets the dark side of her soul and a newt.

To cut right to the chase, Saturday’s 12-miler was all that you could hope a 12-miler might be, which is 12 miles long and full of opportunities for growth.

Given that spring is finally here—I love you spring!—my sinus cavities were visited by the pollen fairy the night before my big run. Antihistamines are not a performance enhancing drug, by the way. But it was nice to be able to breathe through both nostrils, more or less, even if my brain felt like it was full of cotton…
