    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.

Another Mother Runner Radio 78: 2nd Skype Call-in Show!

Continuing to pay homage to Click and Clack, Dimity and Sarah laugh their way through another Skype call-in show. The mother runners answer questions, too, such as giving pointers to self-proclaimed “slow runner” Lauren on how to carry on a conversation while running and helping Nicole negotiate marital harmony while balancing conflicting workout schedules. They talk low iron levels with Kim, solutions to training burnout with Rachel, and the beauty of shorter races with Kithy. From Lisa, they resolve the debate of stretching versus foam rolling. Be sure to catch the analogy Dimity tosses out in the first call…

Another Mother Runner Radio 77: First-Time Marathoners

Another fall marathon season is upon us, so Sarah and Dimity chat up two mother runners who are both taking a 26.2-mile victory lap on Sunday, October 6. While they are both novice marathoners, they are very different runners. First up: Carrie Tollefson, an elite mid-distance runner who competed in the 1500 meters in the 2004 Olympics, who is running the Twin Cities Marathon a mere three months after giving birth to her second child. Then the gals talk to Stephanie Rice, also a mom of two, who is running the Portland Marathon (after following the Marathon: Finish It plan from Train Like a Mother…

Another Mother Runner Radio 76: All About Ragnar

Dimity, fresh off running the Ragnar Relay in the mountains of Colorado, and Sarah host Tanner Bell, the co-founder of the 15-race relay series. Tanner talks about what makes a Ragnar so “magical,” and how he and his energetic co-horts choose relay destinations—including the new trail running editions. Tanner and the ladies laugh about the creativity of team names and outfits (sorry, gals, tutus + our tees aren’t enough to win “best costume”—find out which out-there teams get bestowed that honor). The veteran of 10 Ragnar Relays shares his three top tips for success in the overnight races, which morphs into slightly gag-inducing conversation about dropping a cell phone into a port-a-potty…

Another Mother Runner Radio 75: Sage Rountree Tells How to Race Wisely

Sarah and Dimity welcome back noted yogini and triathlon coach Sage Rountree to talk about Sage’s latest book, Racing Wisely: a Practical and Philosophical Guide to Performing at Your Personal Best. The gals dive into the difference between a race intention and race goal, plus the importance of having a spectrum of goals. The conversation naturally flows into the definition of “personal best.” They talk about the four quarters of a race and why the third is always the toughest (quarters/trimesters: Sarah tosses out a pregnancy analogy). To help tackle late-stage challenges, Sage advocates lots of testing during training…

Another Mother Runner Radio 74: Extra-long Q&A Sesssion

Spurred on by Sarah’s recent trail 10K, the mother runners talk about the myriad joys of off-road races before moving on to answering questions from the tribe. They offer up a solution for Amy, who is debating between slower, heart-rate monitor runs versus running with faster friends, and they urge Amanda to move out of her comfort zone to find a running partner. Listen to Sarah’s theory about why longer races (13.1 and beyond) are like pregnancy, and why Dimity thinks one marathon a year is plenty. Then, in response to Jordan’s question, the gals sing the praises of strength training. They tell Tami what to look for when buying a treadmill, then assure Kimberly race PRs are still possible post-baby…
