    No pressure or anything, though.

Follow This Mother!

Tara Newman, 37, will take on her longest race this spring at the Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Run in Washington, D.C. “I have no expectations for this race other than to have fun. I really love the sights around D.C. and I am looking forward to the adventure.” Adventure and athletics are what this Commack, N.Y. mother runner and her family are all about—Tara and her husband John are behind the blog Family Sport Life, where they share the active life they lead with son Alasdair, 8, and daughter Avery, 5 (who their parents call “The A Team”).

Best recent run: My long run this past weekend was on the treadmill for an hour and 45 minutes…

Mini me: Mini for you?

Hump Day Giveaway: Soleus GPS Mini Running Watch

Whether time flies or doesn’t fly when I’m running depends on whether my feet are flying—a relative term for this heavy-footed mother runner—or tromping.

Either way, like any good, data-obsessed runner, I want to record the time. And the mileage. And my pace. Oh, and while you’re at it, average pace and fastest pace too, please.

And, of course, calories burned. Because if all the other numbers fail to impress me, the number of calories burned always helps to put a exclamation point on any run. Even if I ran slower or shorter than I wanted to, I tell myself as I scroll through the data, that is one impressive bang-for-the-buck number…

Tell Me Tuesday: The Ins and Outs of Gastrointestinal Issues while Running

 

Let us be blunt: Dealing with stomach issues while running can be the shits. Literally. (If you find this topic gross—or you’re eating breakfast—now is the time to head over to TMZ or NYTimes.) Yet it’s a fact of life that, for many runners, tummy troubles can cause a bevy of issues, from pain to diarrhea. Here at AMR we don’t shy away from crossing the proverbial port-a-potty threshold in search of some solutions.
 For a poop-primer, let’s start with why running can wreak havoc with your GI system. The up-and-down motion of running jostles your innards, turning the last night’s dinner into a sloshy mesh…

Disney Princess Weekend: Glass Slippers, Mother Runners, Magical Miles

Disney Princess Weekend: Glass Slippers, Mother Runners, Magical Miles

What a weekend. Actually, what an amazing five days that started with a mother runner party at Fit2Run in Orlando and concluded with wearing so many medals around our necks, it kind of felt like a workout.

We were lucky enough to play multiple roles at the Disney Princess Half-Marathon Weekend—and thankfully, as mothers, we have the multitasking skills to handle it. (And it was so, so much easier than simultaneously helping with 5th grade math homework, cooking a dinner that everybody will at least tolerate, and sweeping dog hairs and crumbs off the kitchen floor.) We manned the mother runner booth on the expo floor and got to meet so many badass, interesting, hilarious mother runners; we spoke daily, giving tips and tricks for race day; we ran the Princess Half-Marathon on Sunday; and I—Dimity—added the inaugural Enchanted 10K on Saturday so I could go full-on Disney and run back-to-back race and collect a special medal, the Glass Slipper Challenge…

You Ask; We Answer: A Q&A Show

In an uncharacteristically oversharing mood, Dimity opens this show with a TMI tale that cracks Sarah up. (Doesn’t everything?)  Then, jumping into questions posted on their Facebook wall, the mother runners talk about everything from dividing longer runs into two workouts to importance of “easy” runs. (No, not oxymorons.) Find out what the exercise “grey zone” is—and that Dimity admits to loving it. The gals discuss how to balance racing with family planning, agreeing you shouldn’t ever have to justify race distance or plans to anyone. In telling Norma-Ann when to start running more frequently, Dim and SBS debate whether they “look forward” to a run versus “not dreading” one…
