    No pressure or anything, though.

Winners Galore: NordicTrack 1750 Treadmill + Sweaty Bands + Action Wipes

Winners Galore: NordicTrack 1750 Treadmill + Sweaty Bands + Action Wipes

It’s been a whirlwind week(s) of travel for us mother runner in chiefs, and while it’s been amazing, sometimes I don’t give things the thought and focus they deserve. Case in point: my decision to turn our contest for the NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Treadmill into  a popular vote. When I wrote the original post, I didn’t indicate that we would turn the entries open to voting.

Fast forward 2+ weeks, and I’m sitting in a hotel room; the (swamped) expo, where Sarah is working, is miles away; and I can’t make a decision because the finalists are all so creative and strong. I toggle through the pictures for at least an hour, hoping to magically make a decision, but no dice…

Martini Fridays: An Extra Week of Training? Fun!

Martini Fridays: An Extra Week of Training? Fun!

In this edition of Martini Fridays, Adrienne Martini, training for the Pittsburgh Half-Marathon using the Train Like a Mother: Finish It plan, realizes she’s served herself up a few more miles.

This is not what I expected to be writing about this week.

Before you panic, I’m not injured nor sick. Everyone near and dear to me is well.

Oh, and I’m not pregnant. That particular ship has sailed, thank all the gods that may be. I love my babies but I am d-o-n-e.

No, my surprise is much more mundane. What I’d expected to devote my entire post to this week  was Saturday’s nine-miler and how I keep failing at the “fun workout…

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…
