#342: Becoming a Runner in Different Decades

Sarah and co-host Amanda Loudin connect with four women to hear about how they each started to run in a different decade. First in line is Julie Mayne Baker, who began running in her 20s—nearly four decades ago. Julie shares how her running changed over the years; find out what launched her into marathons in her 40s. The started-in-her-30s runner is Erin Wright, who took her first running steps after the birth of her second baby. Laugh (and nod!) along as Erin admits how the idea of alone-time was a major motivation to get out the door. Next up is Erica Richards who, you guessed it, started running in her 40s, and who offers up a resounding reason why it’s great to enter the running realm “later in life.” Erica teaches SBS a new definition of “B.C.” She also drops numerous pearls of wisdom about leaving behind guilt and sidestepping injuries. Last but not least is became-a-runner-in-her-5th-decade Donna Lehmann, who sings the praises of cold-weather running. She gives loads of witty advice, including how to respond to naysayers and doubters. Regardless what age you became a runner, you’ll relate to and learn from these four gals.

In the intro, Amanda talks about playing nurse-maid for her her senior-year son, who just got his wisdom teeth out that morning. The duo welcomes the first guest at 13:10.

  1. Loved this podcast on the decades, but you left the 70’s out! I’m 70 this year and running Boston 2019 for the first time! I just completed my 5th marathon and 41st half marathon (also multiple 10 and 5K’s) – – started running at age 63. We “silver hairs” rock too!

  2. I listened to this as I went on my run and then spent time cleaning my elderly dad’s house (a long ongoing process after he moved to assisted living). I SO relate to these women, especially my almost-running-twin Julie. When I first heard about AMR I thought it would be for young moms dealing with naps and getting in speedworkouts around their kids’ sports practice. I’ve discovered it’s for every mom/woman of any age. Thanks so much.
