Special Mother Runner Pendants Giveaway

Spoons: That’s what both Dimity and I received from our respective husbands for Christmas last year. Spoons, yes, spoons. Not antique, put-in-a-display-cabinet spoons, but practical, toss-lettuce-and-vinaigrette or serve-pasta-salad spoons. As we talked about on our podcast, Dimity had asked her hubby, Grant, for a new plastic spoon to replace one she’d lost, while my salad servers were an impulse gift purchase by my man, Jack. And as I admitted in a later podcast, I returned my gift: Our family has enough spoons for a soup test-kitchen.

So you might say Dimity and I aren’t holding out much hope for a thoughtful, heart-felt gift for Mother’s Day…

Two Winners of 26Strong

Is it the Love and Logic parenting style that advocates giving your child two choices—and only two? “We can leave in five minutes or we can leave in two minutes: your choice.” “You can have an apple or a banana: your choice.” “You can go to sleep quietly now or in 60 seconds: your choice.”

Sarah and I have combed through the entries again and again…cancer survivors; mothers who have lost children; funny women; women in need of some mojo; women who have come to running later in life and are discovering how beautiful their strong is…

Mother runner Krista, who goes by H.M. Wild (Honey Mama Runs Wild is her blog name), made a big life change in 2013—the 30-year-old mom of Maya, 6, and George, 5, and her husband moved their family from Anchorage to a more remote area of the state to live in a log cabin and “live life to the fullest.” She hits the trails whenever she can, and a favorite running event is fast approaching: next month’s Skinny Raven Twilight 12K in Anchorage.

The path less traveled: After helping my BRF nail a PR in the 2013 Alaska Run for Women, I hopped in my Subaru and headed north with my family, on a whim, to meet with a real estate agent who showed us four remote cabin properties…

Coach Carl will help you make sense of track--and this podcast might even inspire you to run some laps.

#105: Demystifying the Track

With spring racing season upon us, the mother runners decided it was time to banish any intimidation you might be feeling about track workouts. Dimity and Sarah welcome Carl Leivers, a certified USA Track and Field certified running coach in Atlanta, to help make track workouts less daunting and more “enjoyable” (that being a relative term…). He deciphers all those numbers—e.g., 10 x 400, 6 x 800, 4 x 1000—as well as helps the gals figure out what all the lines mean. He gives pacing tips, including a pointer that’s especially welcome to Sarah. Plus, find out what Dimity’s going to yell at SBS the next time she catches up with her at an airport…
