Mammoth Lakes, California, 2010: Dimity (yellow) and Sarah flank (read: tower over!) two-time Olympian Deena Kastor.

#134: Marathoner, Medalist, Mother: Deena Kastor

Dimity and Sarah are delighted to be joined by Deena Kastor, a mother runner who wears myriad hats, including 2004 Olympics bronze medalist in the marathon, American women’s record holder in the marathon (2:19:36), avid cook/baker, and mother of a pre-school daughter. Deena talked with the gals a week before she headed to New York City to run 26.2 miles through the five boroughs, site of her first marathon more than a decade ago. Deena shares tips for success running NYC Marathon. Proving she’s getting #FasterAsaMasters, Deena talks through her run at the Rock ‘N’ Roll Philadelphia half-marathon, in which she set a new World Masters Half-Marathon record (1:09:39) by 20 seconds…

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

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…

If you're that kind of mother runner—or you want to be that kind of mother runner—then this, the beautiful and versatile Saucony Peregrine 4.

My Saucony Peregrines have taken me up, down, and over many, many miles in the past year, and I’ve loved them since step one. (And I mean L.O.V.E.: ask Sarah. I rave about them all the time.)

What a 20 Mile Run Looks Like: 26 Strong

The email came into my inbox on Friday morning. Kelly Pollock, my Saucony 26 Strong cadet—read: first-time marathoner—was gearing up for her longest run yet. 20 miles on Saturday morning.

“I’m psyching myself out about it,” she wrote, “I already feel like it is not going to go well, which I am sure is not a helpful outlook!”

I read it on my phone as I was headed into volunteer in a third-grade classroom, so I didn’t respond right away, but my gut roiled a bit as I thought about what to write back. As with any marathon training cycle, Kelly has had some high highs (a half-marathon PR) and some low lows (a 19+ miler where she was barfing, walking, cursing Ma Nature, and hating life)…
