    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.

Sleep, Sleep: Challenge Yourself to Get More

Careful readers might remember this sleep post from last year…I tried to take a stab at writing a new version of it on the plane, but I was eating my knees and the reality is, these words still ring clear true. Plus, being on the road for five days for the #TAMRTour, while crazy fun, was also crazy exhausting. I think I’m drooling on my laptop as I type this.

So if you want to skip to the end of the post to get to details about how to join the Five-Day Hyland’s Sleep Challenge, go ahead. I won’t blame you. 

I’ll just put this out there, and hope I am not alone: by about 3 p.m. on days that aren’t as smooth as I’d hoped, I’m prone to calculate how many more hours it’ll be until I’m prone in my bed…

#152: Listen in on Sarah’s Reading at Powell’s

A departure from the usual podcast, this one was recorded live at Powell’s City of Books in Portland. After introducing the AMR duo’s new book, Tales from Another Mother Runner (and having her 9-year-old son inject a witty one-liner from the sidelines), Sarah reads her TAMR essay, which is about dealing with the effects of aging on her running. SBS then fields questions from the audience of local runners, such as how the running scene has changed since the publication of Run Like a Mother and favorite races. Included in the mix is a rousing chorus of “Happy Birthday,” complete with “cha-cha-cha’s” from Sarah’s sidekick son…

In Her Shoes: Blood on the Trail

In Her Shoes: Blood on the Trail

One section Tales From Another Mother Runner is called In Her Shoes, which is first-person accounts of different running situations and tales. We love running stories as much as—or maybe more than?—running itself, but we had a surplus of In Her Shoes stories…if we put them all in the book, it would’ve been bigger than a dictionary. So we’re going to run these every other Friday for a while.
Liz had a TMI Saturday.
I started my period the day before a solo, 18-mile, point-to-point run, but didn’t think it would be a problem. I took an ibuprofen that morning, which in the past had slowed things down a bit…

Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday: Alison Overholt

Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday: Alison Overholt

To celebrate our first four stops on the Tales From Another Mother Runner Tour (#TAMRTour for short…TAMR rhymes with BAMR, btw), we’re going to profile four essayists on the East Coast who are going to be celebrating with us in person. 

A few things before we get to Alison Overholt, who was a recent guest on our podcast. 

—Tonight is our last night on the right coast before we head home. (BTW, thanks for three amazing nights, and for ordering the stellar weather!) Nicole Blades and Alison Overholt will join us in West Hartford, CT tonight, March 12. (RSVP here!)

Finally, if you can’t join us, but have purchased and found the time to read Tales From Another Mother Runner, we’d love, love it if you could take a minute a put up an honest review on Amazon, which, for reasons we don’t totally understand, is huge in spreading the TAMR word and helping women find the book…
