With just a few weeks until the debut of Tales from Another Mother Runner, Dimity and Sarah welcome Alison Overholt, one of 20 mother runners who contributed an essay to the book. Alison, editor in chief of espnW, starts of by telling how--and why--she morphed from being a hoops player to a runner. Alison reads from her poignant TAMR essay, which deals with the death of her mother and the birth of her daughter. Then, taking the AMR game up a notch, she quotes Sheryl Sandberg's recent talk at Davos (fancy!), followed by lessons she learned about mother running from Kara Goucher. This prompts a conversation about "power words:" Alison's 2015 power word is "focus." (Dim and Sarah land on theirs toward the end of the podcast.) Alison shares a panic-inducing tale of the day before she ran the NYC Marathon; call it The Case of the Missing Shoes with Orthotics in Them.
