    Born to run.

    No pressure or anything, though.

Follow This Mother!

Organic egg farmer and mom of two Sandra Laflamme is at home running the trails of New Hampshire, where she and her family live and farm. Sandra, 37, is training for her first tri, the Olympic distance at the Lobsterman Triathlon in Maine.
Best recent run: A 17-mile trail run in the Pemigewasset Wilderness in New Hampshire. I ran the trail with three of my best girlfriends and we started at the Zealand Falls Trail Head and ran to Lincoln Woods. The trail ran along the Pemigewasset River which included scenic waterfalls and even a little bushwacking! It was the perfect run, filled with laughter and fun with some of the strongest women I know!
At home on the trails: Running has given my life a sense of balance…

In Her Shoes: Running in Liberia—and against Ebola

We have been editing a bunch of different things for the third book, out next March. One section in it is going to be called In Her Shoes, which is first-person accounts of different running situations and tales. (So far, running a naked 5K is my—Dimity’s—favorite…but I’m not done yet.) A few of the In Her Shoes relate to running in foreign lands, and Bev Kauffeldt, a longtime mother runner, lives and runs in Liberia. The western African country is all over the news right now because of the Ebola virus and Bev is on the frontlines, so we thought we’d publish her experience published now, instead of next March…

#122: Eat Smart to Run Better [Rerun]

[Note: We're hard at work on our third book this summer, so today's podcast has previously aired. Don't worry - we'll be back next week with a new show!]

Dimity and Sarah serve up a conversation with Cassie Dimmick, a sports dietician and certified running coach in Springfield, Missouri. She’s also a mother runner who knocked 45 minutes off her marathon PR by making a few simple changes to her diet and training so this woman practices what she preaches. According to Cassie, our gut needs to be trained just like muscles and heart do, so she talks about how to be well fueled for a run and how to deal with GI issues during and after a race…

A plethora of pads at our party. (Lots of P's...to deal with pee!!)

Winners of JustGoGirl Pad Subscriptions

Salt Lake City mother runners greeted us with open arms–literally!–at our party on Tuesday night in that lovely city. In front of about 175 gals, Dimity explained as she often does, that in our tribe, “no question is too basic; no question is too much information–TMI.” This is our frequent preamble into talking about JustGoGirl pads, which were designed by an active mom of five who was fed up with “athletic leakage.”

Sure, there are some twitters in the audience, but incontinence is no laughing matter, and we are pleased to present these pads as a solution to mother runners that is both effective and modest…

Martini Fridays: Like I Asked Five Minutes Ago

Martini Fridays: Like I Asked Five Minutes Ago

 

So far August is not covering itself in glory.

This has long been my least favorite month. It’s usually the hottest, for starters, and I’m much better at pushing through the 20 degree days than I am the 80 degree ones. It’s also the time when summer vacation is starting to wear on everyone’s nerves. My kids still have a month or so before school starts—they don’t get out until late June and don’t go back until just after Labor Day—but my classes will start in two weeks and I need to get on top of syllabi and work email. By the third week in August, I’ll fully turn into Yelling Mommy, who can be set off with the slightest eye roll…
