Romance novelist Shirley Jump (she’s authored more than 50 books!) started running to lose “those last 20 pounds” of weight gained while pregnant with her second child. “Ever since the birth of my son, when I gained a ridiculous 70+ pounds, I had been struggling with my weight,” recalls Jump, now 45 and mom to a 20-year-old daughter and 15-year-old son. “I started small—just running from light pole to light pole—on my daily walks. Those short runs gradually got longer and longer, and within a few months, I ran my first 5K. Now I’ve run several half-marathons and am contemplating a full in 2015…

Glittery and caffeinated: I was ready to run Princess

Hump Day Running Giveaway: Five (5) Nuun Energy Sampler Packs

I vividly remember only time I ever I drank coffee in my life: I had a double latte, yummy with loads of foamed milk, at a hip Berkeley, CA, cafe with my first husband. An hour later, as we drove home across the Bay Bridge, I was buzzing so hard from the caffeine, I thought I was going to jump out of the car, let alone my skin. High above the glistening San Francisco Bay, I realized I am very sensitive to caffeine.

For this reason, I use it judiciously in my training. Studies have shown caffeine can reduce the level of perceived exertion during a demanding workout or race (translation: you feel the hurt less when you’re pushing hard), which I’m all for when I’m gunning to go faster or further…

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Ellen Casey

Friday, September 13, 2013 was Week 8 of the TLAM 10K Finish It plan. I was looking forward to spending the weekend with my daughter at Zooma Cape Cod in two weeks for my first ever 6.2 mile run. I wore my running clothes to bed so I would “Don’t think, just go” when my alarm went off early the next morning for my last long run.
The phone rang at 12:30 a.m. “Is this Mike’s mom?” “I am calling from Yale New Haven Hospital…”  “No one has told you what happened?” “We have Mike here … He has been in an accident … He was ejected from the vehicle … He has some injuries …

#100: The Hundredth Episode Special!

Sarah and Dimity never dreamt they’d reach this milestone (that Dimity aptly likens to a 100-mile ultra-marathon) but here they are: episode number 100 of their running podcast! To mark the occasion, the gals revisit some of their favorite segments of past shows, then riff on them a bit. Highlights include: Runner’s World Bart Yasso reminding us all to, “never take a finish line for granted; pro runner (and new mom) Lauren Fleshman beautifully telling us to be open to success and to dwell on positivity; and Sarah instructing Dimity to own her athletic efforts. Laughter also abounds in this episode, from anecdotes old and new of “free balling” and Dimity’s “God Bless Central Park South!” exclamation from her first marathon…
