    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.

Martini Fridays: Incontinence and the taper

Martini Fridays: Incontinence and the taper

I am deep in the self-doubt and recriminations phase of my taper for May 3’s Pittsburgh Half Marathon. I’m also hot off AMR Retreat in Little Rock, which means that I’ve had five amazing days full of running, talking about running, and Action Wipe-ing after running, with a side order of not sleeping or hydrating nearly enough. To say that re-entry has been rough is an insult to rough things. I’m experiencing what I’ve had more than one psychiatrist refer to as “emotional incontinence,” which means I almost burst into tears when, say, the foil lid on my yogurt tears weirdly when I open it…

Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday: Meredith Atwood

Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday: Meredith Atwood

 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 Meredith Atwood, who you may know as Swim Bike Mom. Meredith is a mother of two (ages 6 and 7, or 14 months apart) near Atlanta.

Now hear this: Here's the sweet Red Fox prize package.

Hump Day Running Giveaway: Red Fox EDGE Headset + Bicep Sleeve

 

Every so often, I find a device that makes a pleasingly distinct difference in my life. A zester my mother-in-law gave me made making lemon-infused pasta and orange-peel-studded breads easier and tastier. An ear thermometer made middle-of-the-night temperature-taking more stealth and effective.

In the past few months, not one but two Red Fox Wireless items have helped transform my running “kit.” First up: Red Fox EDGE  Wireless Headset. No more threading wires under my bra strap, then contorting my arms and upper body to try to grab the cord to run it down toward my phone in the hip pocket of my Saucony Bullet Capris…

Mother’s Day Race Directory: The Gift of Race Miles
