    No pressure or anything, though.

Martini Fridays: Let’s Focus on the Positive!

Martini Fridays: Let’s Focus on the Positive!

Three weeks into 13.FUN and regular updates on Martini Fridays. In this one, we learn a little about Adrienne’s grocery store background, among other important things.  

Last week marked my first Eminem run of this training cycle. It’s been at least three months since I’ve done 8 miles and, given how lousy my last 6-miler was, my hopes were not high. Perhaps it was simply a result of low expectations, but the Eminem was fine. Kinda good, even.

Which is one of the facts about running that always humbles/gratifies me: things change. A good six miles one day doesn’t mean they’ll be good the next…

Special Thursday Giveaway: A Pair of Saucony Shoes

Dimity and I are spending more time than usual in our running shoes: She’s training for Pikes Peak Ascent, a race that climbs nearly 8,000 vertical feet over the course of 13.3 miles, which means it may well take Dim four+ hours to cover that half-marathon distance. And I’m working with a coach (same one who is training dear Dimity) to run speedy-for-me at Victoria Marathon. This week is already shaping up as a doozy for me, with a 6-miler after hour-long barre class yesterday and a super-challenging 85-minute run today.
Lucky for us, we have a several pairs of our favorite Saucony shoes to rotate through…

Throwback Wednesday: 10 Rules of Running Injuries

Throwback Wednesday: 10 Rules of Running Injuries

As we’re finishing up our third mother runner book, we’re going green this summer and recycling some of our blog posts. This post originally appeared on our site on October 25, 2010

So I’m officially out of the boot–just minutes before my left side permanently shifted an inch downward, I’m certain–but am still in no shape to run. My right foot, the supposedly healed one, is super crampy and tender. Dang it. And my already angry left glutehing (combo of butt, hip and hamstring, of course) is downright pissed from being such a supporting player for over a month. Insert expletive here…

AMR Traveling Ultimate 6 Kit, Episode 5: Piriformis Syndrome

AMR Traveling Ultimate 6 Kit, Episode 5: Piriformis Syndrome

Nicole Hart, a mom on the move in Boiling Springs, Pennsylvania, had a massive pain in her butt for months. “I haven’t been able to do any real speed workouts, just all easy runs,” she told us. “Foam rolling, stretching, core exercises are helping my Piriformis Syndrome, but they’re not perfect. Sitting is the worst for it!” Sounds like she was the next perfect recipient for the AMR TriggerPoint Traveling Ultimate 6 Kit.

What Piriformis Syndrome is: When one muscle—the piriformis muscle, which is your in your butt near the top of the hip joint—gets too aggressive and compresses the sciatic nerve…
