Martini Fridays: Surprise!

Martini Fridays: Surprise!

For the last few weeks, I’ve been practicing hard-core rest, as suggested by Deena Kastor on an AMR podcast a few weeks ago. I wouldn’t call it outright sloth, mind. I have run since the Empire State Half, just not with any sense of purpose or agenda. It’s been the running equivalent of a meander, truth be told, and it has been delightful. The only downside is that I’m developing quite a backlog of podcasts because I’m not out pounding the pavement for hours and hours each week.

My last really long run post-half was all of seven miles a couple of Saturdays ago. I didn’t really feel like I deserved my ice cold chocolate milk afterwards but forced myself to drink it anyway because I don’t like waste…

Day in the Life of Another Mother Runner: Kristyn Kusek Lewis

Day in the Life of Another Mother Runner: Kristyn Kusek Lewis

Welcome to our third look at #dayinthelifeofAMR: a day where we hand over our Instagram account to another mother runner and let her document her day. Kristyn Kusek Lewis, whose new novel, Save Me will be out next month, showed us a Friday night from her life in Chapel Hill, NC. Beacuse Kristyn is a writer, her captions were so descriptive—and solicited some great comments (protein in Peanut M’n'M’s!)—that we just had to include a few of those too.

If you’re interested in taking over our account for a day, we’d love to have you. You can be training, injured, inspired, not so much, a beginner, a marathoner…

Hump Day Giveaway: Soleus GO Activity Tracker

Hump Day Giveaway: Soleus GO Activity Tracker

Ok, not trying to make you feel guilty, but have you seen the headlines like Sitting is the New Smoking, which ran in Runner’s World recently? Here’s a jolting excerpt from the article:

“Up until very recently, if you exercised for 60 minutes or more a day, you were considered physically active, case closed,” says Travis Saunders, a Ph.D. student and certified exercise physiologist at the Healthy Active Living and Obesity Research Group at Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. “Now a consistent body of emerging research suggests it is entirely possible to meet current physical activity guidelines while still being incredibly sedentary, and that sitting increases your risk of death and disease, even if you are getting plenty of physical activity…

From Home, With Love: 6,570 Miles of Gratitude

In 2010, retired army veteran Mike Ehredt embarked on Project America Run, a personal journey across the United States to honor the American soldiers who had lost their lives in Iraq.  Running more than 30 miles a day, alone, Mike stopped every mile from the Oregon coast to the Coast of Maine to plant a flag inscribed with the name, rank, age, and hometown of a fallen American soldier.

But he didn’t stop there. In 2012, he ran 2,146 miles from the Canadian border to Galveston, TX, and placed flags in remembrance of every American casualty in Afghanistan.  We did a fun Q+A with him, post-run…

Baring My Boot + My Newest Running Injury

Baring My Boot + My Newest Running Injury

Ok, it’s time for me to come clean. For the past three weeks, I have been clomping around in a boot—the same hot, black boot that I’ve been lucky enough to clomp around in a couple times since 2007.

Unlike the previous two times—stress fractures, both—I am blessed with a new-to-me injury. A plantar plate strain; likely grade 2, if you want to play along. It feels like a bundle of torn, angry nerves under the ball of my right foot, mostly under my second and third toes. It flares up randomly—lying in bed, sitting at the computer, whenever it feels like it—even though I’ve been booted for 3 weeks…
