Kristin Porter 2015 JLM-5cSarah welcomes back Adrienne Martini as co-host, and the gals kick off the show by talking about why they each love running—as well as knitted knockers (!). They are joined by Kristin Porter of the Iowa Girl Eats blog to talk about a variety of topics, including how Kristin handled going gluten-free after being diagnosed with Celiac disease after the birth of her son. Before the conversation turns to gluten-free eating and cooking, the mother runners marvel at the 64 (!!) treadmill workouts Kristin has on her site, and why she . After Adrienne reveals that her daughter was diagnosed with Celiac disease at age four, she and Kristin marvel at dealing with a disease that can be managed through food. Kristin talks about the steep learning curve she dealt with when she first cut gluten out of her diet, and how it prompted her to write an e-book entitled Gluten-Free for Beginners. Kristin recounts her “wogging” (walking + jogging) workouts when she finally had enough energy to resume running. Along the way, learn about two gluten-free eateries in Manhattan (Risotteria and Pala Pizza) and two gluten-free baking blogs.

A trio of calls to action from podcast:

*If you have a success story about Hyland’s Leg Cramps to share, please go to this web page to leave a quick review.

*Next week, Coach Christine and Sarah are recording a podcast about reaching big goals–when’s best time, how to get there, how to succeed, etc. We want to get the voices of real mother runners into the conversation–which is where YOU come in! If you have a big goal this year, like doing your first marathon, stepping up a half-Ironman, breaking 2:00 in half-marathon, we want to hear from you via a Voice Memo. Please record a 20-30 second Voice Memo on your phone, starting by telling us your name, where you live, and how many children you have. Then tell us your goal and something about it–how you’re going to achieve it, what you’re worried about, changes you’re making in your life to ensure you nail it. Just bring it to life for a half-minute or so. Then email the Voice Memo to me at motherrrunnerstore [at] gmail [dot] com, please; we need them by end of day Tuesday, January 19. Many thanks!
