    No pressure or anything, though.

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Jessica Pinkall

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Jessica Pinkall

I was not born into a family of runners. As a matter of fact, I grew up hating to run. I played numerous other sports as a child: basketball, softball, volleyball, and gymnastics (my height got in the way of that one) and ended my high school career on the dance team. I had, and probably still do, the worst form when running.

My enjoyment of running was found when I participated in a local radio station’s version of The Biggest Loser contest. The trainer I had at that time incorporated cardio into our workouts and a couple times a week, I ran on the treadmill. After the weight started coming off, I really began to enjoy running…

Team Maddy on the run

#114: Father’s Day Special with Team Maddy

To celebrate Father’s Day, Dimity and Sarah welcome Rick Van Beek to the show. A Michigan father of three, Rick participates in running races and triathlons pushing a customized stroller containing his 15-year-old daughter, Madyson, who has cerebral palsy. Rick tells the mother runners how he morphed from being a two-pack-a-day smoker to becoming half of Team Maddy. The father runner tells a sure-to-make-you-laugh anecdote of the unintentional hand gesture Maddy sometimes flashes as they pass other participants. And he also shares a candid response about what he’s gained from the 100+ races Team Maddy has completed…

Winner of Sof Sole Insoles + a Week’s Worth of Running Socks

Winner of Sof Sole Insoles + a Week’s Worth of Running Socks

Greetings from the opposite side of the country: My kids and I are in Connecticut visiting my parents. We’re here for a week, and I l excessively labored over packing. Especially my running outfits. Forecasts call for reasonable early summer temps, but numbers can be so deceiving since the Weather app on iPhones doesn’t show humidity. Short-sleeve “are my kids still chasing me?” tee or another mother runner tank top? (Gotta go for a pop of pink so drivers on super-curvy, no-shoulder roads will be able to see me.) If I wear capris to prevent chub-rub on Sunday’s long run, will I melt faster than a popsicle?

One decision was simple, though: I packed my Saucony Guide 7s with a brand-new pair of Sof Sole Fit insoles in them…

The Workout You Don’t Want To Do

The Workout You Don’t Want To Do

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 February 25, 2010

 

Post-kids, my brain can retain about 10 percent of what it used to be able to.

To wit: I literally could not remember the street number of our address the other day when I was writing it down for a fellow mom so she could pick up her son after a play date. I always rave about how cute Noah, her son, is–he wears his pants backwards every day and belts them tight around his toothpick waist, and the sight of the pockets in the front just kills me–and I think she probably thought I wanted to kidnap him…

Sock it to 'em: 110% Flat Out Sox

Special Hump Day Giveaway: His-and-Hers 110% Compression Socks and Q&A with Michael Wardian

With a nod to Father’s Day this Sunday, we are highlighting ultramarathoner Michael Wardian, dad of two young boys. Mike is well known for many running feats, but the one that knocks our socks off is his 2:34 marathon while pushing a running stroller (!!). (Speaking of socks: We’re giving away two pairs of 110% Flat Out Sox this week. Giveaway details below the Q&A.) We’re bestowing Mike an honorable Mother Runner degree, especially after reading his response to Dad-centric multi-tasking question.

Most proud racing moment: I am very fortunate to have a lot of really proud moments, but I think one of my best was qualifying for my first Olympic Trials in 2012…
