Sarah is joined by a coterie of co-hosts—Dimity McDowell, Adrienne Martini, and Maggie Palmer—in this recorded-in-front-of-a-live-audience episode. Adrienne shares the story of her 6-minute “accidental” PR in a recent half-marathon. Laugh over Maggie’s tale of her 3-year-old son and his valiant maneuver to protect his grandmother. Then Adrienne and Maggie bow out to make room for Coach Amanda and Dr. Justin Ross, who talk about the physical (Amanda) and mental (Justin) side of tapering. Three “real” mother runners tell their taper tales and get advice from the experts. Justin shines on a light on his spotlight theory.
