Back to School 5K Giveaway, Day 3: Buy Your Books

Probably not much of a surprise, but both of us love books. Grant, my husband, recently called the public library, “my candy store,” which is pretty accurate, but then I wish it carried Kit Kats and gummi bears. I often have five or six books lying by the side of my bed—a new, larger bedside table is on my to-do list—and I can’t recall a night that I didn’t at least read a few pages. (Sometimes the same few pages from the previous night, but still: I consume words.)

So today is a giveaway of the written, running word. A range of five books that all involve miles—and will get you psyched to put in your own…

Back-to-School 5K Giveaway, Day 2: Get Dressed

As a child, I adored back-to-school clothes shopping with my mother–then doing a fashion show for my mom and dad, showcasing the outfits I paired up. The flowered cords with the kelly green turtleneck or the navy skirt with the variegated blue sweater with an airplane applique on it. (Oh, how I LOVED that oddball sweater!) I’d twirl and pose as if the patio where my parents were enjoying a pre-dinner drink was a catwalk just for gangly, bespectacled me. It’s no wonder I grew up to be a fastinista who wears coordinated running outfits even when my run finishes before the sun can shine a spotlight on me…

Back to School 5K Giveaway, Day 1: Pack Your Bags

Today begins our first AMR Back to School 5K Giveaway! Although we love our 5K of the Holidays, the month of December is not exactly the calmest month around these parts, so we decided to move it to commemorate much more important milestones: school buses rolling down the streets, picking up our kids, and taking them off to learn!

More importantly, The AMR Back to School 5K Giveaway, five consecutive days of amazing giveaways, launches us into the delicious running season that is fall. Temps are going to drop sooner than later (we promise!); leaves are going to change; air is going to crispen (pretend that’s a real word please); legs are going to feel fresh and ready to roll; and finish lines will be lying there like honey crisp apples, just ripe for the pickin’…

#126: A Chat with Saucony 26Strong Cadets Mid-Training

In this almost hour-long episode, Dimity and Sarah introduce their “cadets” in the Saucony 26Strong program, Kelly Pollock and Alison Pellicci, respectively. Kelly and Alison are both relatively new runners—hitting the pavement (and treadmill!) for two years or less—and now they are midway through training to run their first 26.2, the Philadelphia Marathon, with Dimity and Sarah at their sides. The cadets tell how training is going, including sharing their biggest hurdle and greatest surprise thus far. Kelly talks about the success of doing run-walk pattern, and Alison lets listeners in on what it’s like to marathon train with her husband…

martini fridays: bad run + syracuse meet-up

martini fridays: bad run + syracuse meet-up

I wasn’t sure how my body and mind would respond to getting back on the running horse — hey, there’s a thought: half-marathons on horseback — after a week away. Would my IT band and growly right calf simply say “Nope” and force me to limp home? Would my brain respond to speedwork with a “Nope” and spend the workout reminding me of how much I suck?

Turns out the answer to both of those questions was, mostly,  “Nope.”

With one exception, the runs have gone well — but that exception was a big one. Last Saturday’s long run was so bad I decided during the middle miles I didn’t really even like running…
