Tell Me Tuesday: On Being Epic

Tell Me Tuesday: On Being Epic


I have received so much positive feedback about my Epic Ironmother feature in the April issue of Runner’s World (it’s not online yet); thank you all for your kind words and notes. I promise, I won’t be all Midwestern middle child and detract from my race or effort or training, because I rocked those 140.6 miles.

That said, I wanted to repeat a line I wrote in the story that somebody tweeted back to me, and I’m very glad wasn’t edited at all.

Going big isn’t really about the distance: It’s about taking on something that isn’t necessarily a gimme. 

On our 100th episode podcast, we relistened to Bart Yasso talking about the incredible stories he hears at races…

Ragnar Relay Contest: Napa Valley, Here We Come!

We are sooooo ready to twist off the top on the bottle—we’re classy like that—on this, our second-annual Ragnar Relay contest.

We’re headed to the Napa Valley Ragnar Relay, a 197-mile route which starts in lovely San Francisco and ends in even lovelier Napa Valley. (Check out this great video to get your juices flowing for some good running—and some good wine.)

We’re taking it on as one ridiculously solid, ridiculously strong, ridiculously entertaining team of 12 mother runners. Team name? The Badass Mother Runners, of course.

And now we need some mother runners to fill our team…

#101: Kathrine Switzer Reflects Back—and Talks Future Races

Sarah and Dimity are honored to welcome Kathrine Switzer to the podcast. As the first woman to run the venerable Boston Marathon with an official number, Kathrine changed the course of women’s running. Kathrine walks the mother runners through that epic 1967 Boston Marathon experience, calling it, “a series of coincidences that couldn’t possibly repeat,” and “an awakening” for herself at age 20. She shares her vision for future races she’d like to see in the Olympic Games—such as relay races, “that combine men’s unique capabilities with women’s.” Kathrine also talks about the work she’s doing to reach out to women to make them feel fearless, including the inaugural 261 Women’s Marathon happening in Majoraca, Spain, in two weeks, and the 261 Fearless Collection from Skirt Sports…

Winner of the Saucony Spring Outfit—and a Little Complaining

I know bitching about daylight saving time and the pseudo-jetlag it causes is about as overdone as complaining about the Polar Vortex and this never-ending winter, but just let me for a setenence or three. Because I’m pretty sure when we sprung forward, some super-natural force jumped in and added another day to the week.This has been an interminably, crazy long week and I feel like Sleeping Beauty. Getting up to run—let along getting out of bed before 7 a.m.—has hardly happened.

I have a lot to report—I fractured my hand in two places on a trail run about 10 days ago, I’m into the Pikes Peak Ascent, I’m training for Boulder 70…

Martini Fridays: Double Digits

Adrienne Martini hits a big milestone (ha!) in her miles as she ramps up for the Pittsburgh Half-Marathon. Catch up with her running here. 

I spent most of week 8 obsessed with the 10-mile long run. By “obsessed,” I don’t mean it would cross my mind every now and again. It was like the elephant in my jello— it’s possible that I’m mixing two sayings here—all. dang. week.

“Ten miles,” my brain said while I was getting my morning joe.

In the shower it said, “Maybe you should shave your pits for the 10-mile run.”

“Ten miles,” it said, while I was teaching my classes…
