What Would Another Mother Runner Do?

What Would Another Mother Runner Do?

In our ongoing series of dilemmas faced by mother runners, we’ve met a gal who dislocated her hip during a marathon when she slipped on a banana peel and we’ve profiled an ingenious woman who pretended her Garmin was a camera to scare off creepy driver. Now meet Shannan, a mom of two in Baker City, Oregon, ran a small 10K trail race (“small” in this case equals, at most, four women in the race) earlier this month.

She won the race—or, at least, thought she did. Running a two-loop course, Shannan was announced as the lead 10Ker when she crossed the midway point, then she was proclaimed the first-place finisher when she crossed the finish line…

Solutions for Summer Running

As temps are heating up across the country, Sarah and Dimity answer your questions about sweaty summer concerns. Hope it doesn’t rub you the wrong way, but they spend quite a bit of time talking about chafing. They move on to myriad tips on how to have enough fluids for long runs. (One important take-away: Do as Dimity says, not as she does.) They also cover sunscreen, the importance of slowing down, and acclimatization (glad they didn’t have to blurt out that mouthful of a word, though!).

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…

Chariot Cougar 2: built to devour all the miles you can feed it. (Shown in its tamer stroller mode)

Winner Chariot Cougar 2

Before moving on the announce the winner of a lightweight, easy-to-handle Chariot Cougar 2, I’m happy to tell you that I finally got some snaps of all three of my kids in front of their school. And, for good measure, I got one in our minivan en route to school as, to me, the standout morning memories take place in there. (For better or worse.) Here they are: 

And now for the real winner today, and what photo(s) she wish she’d gotten more of:
Stephanie H.: “I wish I had more pictures of me with my kids. I’m a photographer so it’s only natural for me to be the one taking all the pictures (and no pressure to look good…ever!)…

Ironmother Week: The Spirit

Ironmother Week: The Spirit

So my body is on board, my mind is prepping to live in the moment, my coach is unbelievably awesome. The last piece? The spirit. And with this, I will close Ironmother week; look for a short race report-ish post on Tuesday (and some longer ones once I get settled at home again). Thanks for sticking with me.

One of my favorite kid books is the Hello, Goodbye Window, a simple story of a young kid staying overnight at her grandparents’ house.

In the morning, the grandpa wakes up and yells out the Window, “Hello, World! Whatcha got for us today?”

I think I will open my window at the Days Inn on at 4:30 a…

Onward: Dimity and Ironman Coeur d’Alene

Onward: Dimity and Ironman Coeur d’Alene

Last week, Dimity’s triathlon coach, Briana Boehmer, emailed me on the sly, asking if she could write a blog post for Dimity. “Just talking about all she has done…. I imagine the corresponding support from the AMR community would be such a great boost for her. She has been so quiet about all her hard work. I just thought it might give her a big HUG and lots of love for race day. AND just give her a full understanding of how far she has come….” With happy tears in my eyes, I heartily agreed. Here is what Bri wrote:

I’ve started this post a dozen different ways…

First, with the ever-popular (and admittedly cheesy) motivational quote…
