Sarah and Dimity welcome Kristin Armstrong, the well-loved Mile Markers columnist for Runner’s World. This mom of three teens, including girl twins, tells how she was a “nerd child,” not tapping into her running side until after she had her children. (Dimity dubs this, “delayed-onset athlete syndrome.”) Kristin details how her friends pulled her into running while she was going through a difficult divorce. The author now trains for ultramarathons, saying, “an ultra is a matter of your head and your heart.” Kristin reads an excerpt from her joyful essay, then talk turns to faith and running, with Kristin revealing running connects back to the Source, which for her is God. The women talk about leading an examined life.
In the introductory chitchat, Dimity and Sarah talk about upcoming mother runner parties they are hosting in New England and Mid-Atlantic. Click here for more details and to RSVP to one of these free parties.
