We freely admit we love this aqua/lime Soleus mini because its colors remind us our AMR colors!

Hump Day Running Giveaway: Two Soleus mini GPS Watches

I’m just going to admit up front: This post is going to be short because I still need to make frosting for my husband’s birthday cake and rustle up a dinner worthy of his big day. 

While Molly is my best running friend (BRF),  I have another trusty companion with me on every run: a Soleus mini GPS watch. In fact, lately I’ve had to run w/o my BRF due to our conflicting schedules (as a veterinarian, Molly often works a half-day on Saturday, and my weekends are a flurry of kids’ basketball and futsal games), but my Soleus mini is always ready for runs, any day, any time.

Soleus might not be the “big name” in the GPS watch business, the pint-size mini gets the job done–and more…

What Would Another Mother Runner Do? Training Run Mathematics

What Would Another Mother Runner Do? Training Run Mathematics

Recently, Lindsay, a mother runner in Florida, posted a dilemma in our Another Mother Runner Club on Strava. Since it’s a question we’ve come across often, we thought we’d dissect her situation and ask what you’d do as part of our occasional What Would Another Mother Runner Do series?
Lindsay takes it from here: Three days before the Disney World Half-Marathon, I was offered a bib to run it. (Ed note: Yes, we realize this isn’t the exactly best thing to do, but bib-transfer happens. We’re not here to judge; we’re here to figure out WWAMRD.) I jumped at the chance because my husband was already doing the Goofy (half-marathon + marathon) and I was going to be there with the kids anyway…

#145: Another Mother Runner Run + Refresh Retreat

A trio of guests join Sarah and Dimity to make the Another Mother Runner Run + Refresh Retreat, hosted this April in Little Rock, Arkansas, come to life.

In Her Shoes: Breaking Up With a Running “Friend”

In Her Shoes: Breaking Up With a Running “Friend”

One section Tales From Another Mother Runner is called In Her Shoes, which is first-person accounts of different running situations and tales. We love running stories as much as—or maybe more than?—running itself, but we had a surplus of In Her Shoes stories…if we put them all in the book, it would’ve been bigger than a dictionary. So we’re going to run these every other Friday for a while.

Wendy found a friend she didn’t really want on a run…

I have a neighbor, the father of one of my son’s friends, who used to wait for me at the end of his driveway so he could run with me…

Tales from Another Mother Runner Thursday: Marit Fischer

Tales from Another Mother Runner Thursday: Marit Fischer

Welcome to round three of Tales From Another Mother Runner Thursday, where we preview one of the 22 essays and authors in our forthcoming book. While our names are on the cover, the book is a truly celebration of this amazing, badass community: not only does it contain 22 essays from a range of talented writers and mother runners, it has miles of insight, advice, stories, and humor from hundreds of you.
Up today: Marit Fischer, a trail runner in Park City, Utah and mother of Hazel, a five-year-old.
My running history: As a kid, I loved running because I was good at it. No matter my focus sport through school and in my twenties (soccer, basketball, track, fencing, triathlon), I always ran as part of my training, until, in my thirties, everything else lost its allure and running itself became my passion…
