    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.

Quick Note From Dimity: About That Essay…

For the past week, it’s felt like my whole body has been shot up with Novacaine. I’ve been numb, but not in the whee-it’s-go-time way I should’ve been.

When I wrote my essay in Tales From Another Mother Runner last August, this March felt so far off. Kind of like it wouldn’t ever really come. But the clock kept marching forward, and here we are.

The words that I wrote in the bright light and long days of  last summer are now in the grey light of this winter day.

And right now, the words feel like a smelly, scary elephant lurking around everything I do and think with AMR. That’s not how I want to feel around these parts…

Tales From Another Mother Runner Tuesday: Bethany Meyer

Tales From Another Mother Runner Tuesday: Bethany Meyer

 

March 3 has finally arrived!
Our third book, Tales From Another Mother Runner should be hitting shelves and mailboxes across the country today! (And yes, we kind of think of it as our third baby. Except that labor was last fall, and we’ve fully recovered, so now we’re all: Isn’t she cute? And that wasn’t that hard, was it?)
To celebrate the arrival, we’ve got another serving of Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday, where we preview one of the essayists. While our names are on the cover, the book is a truly celebration of this amazing, badass community: not only does it contain 22 essays from a range of talented writers and mother runners, it has miles of insight, advice, stories, and humor from hundreds of you…

Meet Amy Blake, a (slightly tired) #AMRinSaucony

Welcome to the first column from Amy Blake, our #AMRinSaucony. She’s going to post monthly—and we’re going to have a cool #AMRinSaucony contest on Friday, so stay tuned!
It seems like it was yesterday when Dimity told me I was slated for a blog post in March. In reality, it was three weeks ago, which seemed like it was forever away. Having blogged for a long time now – it will be fifteen years this May – I thought, no problem; I have plenty of time.

Feel free to laugh. Because as you can probably guess, Life happened. I got slammed with a ton of last minute “super critical” things at work…

You, too, can look as happy, strong, and capable as Dimity did during a triathlon.

#150: Everything You Need to Know to Tri

Thinking about trying a triathlon this spring or summer? Dimity and Sarah welcome triathlon coach Barrie Hufford to answer questions ranging from gear to training. As the mother of two young boys, Barrie recognizes most moms can’t dedicate four hours/day to the sport, and her realistic attitude shines through in her answers, such as telling gals not to do too much (e.g. no need to do a 40-mile bike ride now for a sprint triathlon in June). She walks mother runners through setting up gear in the transition area, offering pointers on getting in and out of a wetsuit (including whether you even need one) and the best shorts to wear in the race…

Martini Fridays: All About Thighs

Martini Fridays: All About Thighs

I’ve been thinking about my thighs a lot lately.

Most of these thoughts have sprung from my pants, which sounds far naughtier than it is. See – I need new pants, ones that I can wear to my quasi-professional office without looking like a farmer fresh in from her field. Currently, I have one pair that works. One. And one isn’t enough when one is prone to spilling.

The pants problem will evaporate once it’s safe to expose flesh to the outside air again and I can go back to my old reliable skirts and dresses, whose very nature makes the girth of my thighs irrelevant. That’s assuming spring comes…
