How a Positive Attitude Affects Running

About 10 minutes into recording our podcast with Olympic medalist Deena Kastor, who is on an amazing streak of race successes, I asked her to what she attributes her continued strength. Deena’s response:

“It sounds a little hokey to say that happiness has helped elevate me the past year, but I am extraordinarily happy with my life and with my running and I think because of that, I have this great momentum going. I feel I’m always an optimistic and upbeat person, but I have really cut out anything in my life—there is nothing on my calendar that doesn’t make me smile,” said Deena, who finished the NYC Marathon strong yesterday in 2:33:18, the 11th overall woman in a top-notch field of international athletes…

Since I know you all were waiting for this: My official 1997 Marathon report.

Two words: wet and AWESOME!

What a rush coming over the Verranzano Bridge. Wind in my face, water below my feet, 29,000 of my closest friends running along side me…

Deena shares tips for success running NYC Marathon.

Day in the Life of Another Mother Runner: Happy Fit Mama

Welcome to our second stab at #dayinthelifeofAMR: a day where we hand over our Instagram account to another mother runner and let her document her day. Angela from Happy Fit Mama stepped up, even though she’s not able to run right now (ugh, hate that, Angela…so sorry. Sending you healing vibes!). Angela is a running coach and is participating in Saucony’s 26 Strong Program, among other things. Here’s a recent Saturday in her life:

If you’re interested in taking over our account for a day, we’d love to have you. You can be training, injured, inspired, not so much, a beginner, a marathoner…
