    Crosstrain, XTrain, XT: Call it what you want. Just do it.

    A throwback to Train Like a Mother--or actually, what was left on the cutting-room floor of Train Like a Mother. A space thing--not a content thing. (Good stuff, that crosstraining: we promise!)

10 Reasons Why You Should Be a Mother Runner…

10 Reasons Why You Should Be a Mother Runner…

10. Because you can’t control drivers who cut you off with nary a blinker, and deifnitely not a wave of thanks. Or the condescending reaction your boss has to a project on which you worked ridicidulously hard. Or the fact that there are no green grapes at the store and your four-year-old absolutely.must.have green grapes for circle project tomorrow at preschool. (You were told about it last week, but can’t always control your brain either, turns out.) The world spins, the highways are clogged, the boss is a jerk, the grapes aren’t in season. It’s that way, and you’ve got no say.
9. Because school reunions happen…

Sarah (left, but you should know that by now!) and Molly

#133: Victory in Victoria

Sarah and Dimity welcome an extra-special guest on this episode: Sarah’s best running friend (BRF), Molly. She joins the mother runners to tell tales of the Victoria Marathon. Molly ran the half-marathon and, spoiler alert, Sarah re-qualified for Boston Marathon in time of 3:56:54! But the show is mainly Sarah recounting her strong race, her first-ever negative split in a marathon (her 11th 26.2-mile race). Sarah’s brimming with pride, and hopefully she imparts useful insight and advice for any runners looking to dig deep and finish strong in their next race, whatever the distance.

*If you’re digging our podcasts, we’d be super-grateful if you’d take a minute (because we *know* you have so many to spare!) to write a review on iTunes…

Martini Fridays: Ripped it up.

Martini Fridays: Ripped it up.

I can only begin to tell you how much more chill I was at the start of the Empire State Half Marathon, my second half, than I was at the start of the Pittsburgh Half Marathon, my first. This dynamic was also true with me and childbirth. I was wound pretty tightly when it came to making sure baby number one had the “perfect” birth. With kid number two, I could have birthed anywhere as long as that epidural drip just kept working its magic.

I was pretty chill on Sunday for another reason: it was really freaking cold. Forty degrees is a great temperature for running, yes, but it is a hard temp to bear when you are waiting for the run to start…

Sweet Tunes (2.5 hours!) and New Read for #BAMRR Book Club

Sweet Tunes (2.5 hours!) and New Read for #BAMRR Book Club

Catching up on our media around these parts, and need to catch you up too.

First up: We recently worked with Rock My Run, an free app that has a boatload of mixes designed just for running, to created a 2.5 (!) hour long mix of great tunes to keep you grooving and getting through the next mile—and the next one and the next one.

It’s just us for mother runners (well, not really, but kind), and it’s called #BAMRtunes.

The best part? It’s free! Yes, 2.5 hours of (hand-picked by Sarah and Dimity!) motivating songs available on a smart phone, and all you have to do grab them by following these instructions:

Hump Day Giveaway: Icebreaker Aero + Other Woolie Goodies

Hump Day Giveaway: Icebreaker Aero + Other Woolie Goodies

A few of my delights of running:
*The lay-out outfit and pin-on-bib night-before-a-race routine.
*Peeling off a soaked sports bra + shirt, post-run, and hanging it up on my doorknob. Oddly satisifying.
*The last mile of any run. Almost done.
*The first mile of any race. Concentrating on not going out too fast but.so.hard.to.do.
*The first run in the fall when I’m wearing long sleeves—and don’t have to take them off.
*The first run in the spring when I’m wearing long sleeves—and get to take them off.

Delights come from details, and Icebreaker, a New Zealand-based company that makes running gear out of  merino wool, knows that intimately…
