My Most Important Mile: Diane Hochhalter

My Most Important Mile: Diane Hochhalter

Another in our series of Most Important Miles to celebrate the fact that we are so grateful for your stories, our collective miles that send strength and love into the world, the community that brings us together, and the simple ability to run. (Find Diane’s blog here.)

In October 2013, I crossed, hand in hand with two of my close friends, the finish line of the Twin Cities Marathon in St. Paul Minnesota.

In February 2014, I was walking like a funky chicken.

What started as a facial spasming and twitching progressed into something that affected my ability to walk normally, speak fluently, process thoughts and situations like I had been able to previously…

Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday: Susan Schorn

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 Susan Schorn, who was on our podcast in 2013 with some great ideas for and philsophies around self defense. 

Suan is going to join Kristin Armstrong and Sarah tonight, March 26th, in Austin at the Texas Running Company. Don your best boots–or your running shoes! You can still join us! RSVP here for a free, fun night full of prizes, laughs, and mother runner connection.

My running history: I ran a little cross-country in high school but didn’t really get into it as an adult until after my son was born…

Most Important Mile: Maggie Vinciguerra

Another in our series of Most Important Miles to celebrate the fact that we are so grateful for your stories, our collective miles that send strength and love into the world, the community that brings us together, and the simple ability to run.

My dad and I have run together for  the last 20 years, on and off. He’s the main reason why I started running and at  age 78 he can still run a sub-25 minute 5k and holds international records for several middle distance races. Running with my dad is truly a gift. Our runs almost always involve talking about—and often working out— life’s big stuff: relationships, job stress, family, illness and death…

Most Important Mile: Elinor + Jodi Scott

Most Important Mile: Elinor + Jodi Scott

Another in our series of Most Important Miles to celebrate the fact that we are so grateful for your stories, our collective miles that send strength and love into the world, the community that brings us together, and the simple ability to run.
In 2013, my oldest sister, Elinor Scott, was unable to finish the Boston Marathon because of the terrorist bombing.
In 2014, Elinor, a mother of four, was unable to start the Boston Marathon because she had been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.
While others spoke of chemo regimens, long-term prognosis, quality of life issues and advancing medical trials, Elinor stayed focused on one goal that kept her motivated in those first months following diagnosis: completing the Boston Marathon…

Final Call: AMR Retreat: Run + Refresh

Final Call: AMR Retreat: Run + Refresh

Sarah (and her sidekick and photographer, Jonna) ran all over Little Rock to scout out the best runs for our first AMR Retreat: Run + Refresh in Little Rock, April 16-19. We’ve got all the pieces in place, and we’re ready to roll with the laughs, the miles, the delicious food, the friendships, the training tips, the nutrition help, the yoga, and a little foam rolling, among other things.
Then she headed back to luxurious Capital Hotel, where she took in the roses, her beloved grits, the sheets that make your feet sing.

It’s not Closing Time the way that Semisonic sang about it—you don’t need to finish your whiskey or beer—but wanted to let you know that registration for the Retreat closes this Friday, March 27…
