Bethany Takes on Boston: I Hate Goodbyes

Bethany Takes on Boston: I Hate Goodbyes

In case you missed the news, Bethany Meyer killed it at the Boston Marathon. Huge thanks again to Stonyfield Organic Yogurt for her awesome orange singlet–and the great opportunity you gave Bethany and us mother runner, who got to go along for the 26.2-mile journey! Here’s her post-race report. Although she’s going to take a break from writing for AMR for a bit, don’t worry: We’ll get her back in the line-up sooner than later.

“It’s big and it’s mine, but it’s stuck on the vine,” I begin.

“…And Halloween’s just hours away,” he answers. I don’t see his face, yet I know that he wears a smile…

Four $25 Mother’s Day Deals

Four $25 Mother’s Day Deals

While we love homemade Mother’s Day cards (misspellings are the best!) and breakfast in bed, provided the OJ doesn’t spill, we don’t need another candle or mug come May 10. And we’re guessing you might not either.
With that in mind, we’ve pulled together a few of our favorite mother runner things to create four Mother of a Deals. We wanted to make things both easy and affordable; thinking you can gently forward this post to your partner, child, or anybody else who wants to celebrate you as the phenomenal mother and runner you are.
Without further ado, here are the four deals; all involve the color orange and blue, and all include our super soft, flattering, scooped-neck lifestyle tee that runs from size small to 2xlarge…

Bethany being a badass in Boston

#158: Boston Marathon 2015 Recap

Sarah and Dimity welcome back Bethany Meyer, who recorded the show less than 48 hours after completing her first 26.2, the prestigious Boston Marathon, as part of Team Stonyfield. The mother runners agree Bethany delivers the best line ever on an AMR podcast, then she moves on to describing the race section by section. (Or, as she divided it, “GU by GU by GU.” Complete with a Bahston accent, Bethany repeats race advice she got from a seasoned Boston Marathoner. Find out why the race became “magical” after Mile 10 or 11, and why it became, “just a 5-mile jog” after infamous Heartbreak Hill…

Martini Fridays: Incontinence and the taper

Martini Fridays: Incontinence and the taper

I am deep in the self-doubt and recriminations phase of my taper for May 3’s Pittsburgh Half Marathon. I’m also hot off AMR Retreat in Little Rock, which means that I’ve had five amazing days full of running, talking about running, and Action Wipe-ing after running, with a side order of not sleeping or hydrating nearly enough. To say that re-entry has been rough is an insult to rough things. I’m experiencing what I’ve had more than one psychiatrist refer to as “emotional incontinence,” which means I almost burst into tears when, say, the foil lid on my yogurt tears weirdly when I open it…

Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday: Meredith Atwood

Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday: Meredith Atwood

 We’re excited to return to our regularly scheduled Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday and to keep the #TAMRTour  momentum going. (TAMR rhymes with BAMR, btw.)

Today we’re profiling Meredith Atwood, who you may know as Swim Bike Mom. Meredith is a mother of two (ages 6 and 7, or 14 months apart) near Atlanta.

My running history:  Until a few years ago, my history of running consisted of getting in the car and “running” to the nearest Dairy Queen for a giant Blizzard. I was never a runner, and I never cared to be. But I woke up one morning and couldn’t believe what I had become—an angry, out-of-shape, stressed-out, working wife and mom—and I wanted to change…
