Forums: Connect with Another Mother Runner

A huge, sweaty welcome to the another mother runner forums, an exclusive but inclusive—that makes sense, right?—place to connect, chat, ask, analyze, and dream big with other runners. The beauty of this running forum is that, unlike our Facebook page, the status updates don’t float by in less than a day. Here they are, accessible whenever you need the 411.

Anything is game here: questions about training, nutrition, sports bras, leaking on the run, whatever. Two categories we think are pretty cool: a match.com for mother runners, where you can find a BRF (best running friend) and free gear swap, a place to find a home for your newish gear you never use. (The recipient pays only for shipping; thank you in advance for respecting this rule.)

So whatever you've got—IT band problems; stroller questions; a picture-perfect race; shoe issues—lay it on the collective us. If you'd like to nominate a category we forgot, email us at runmother [at] gmail [dot] com. We're all here to push each other across the finish line again and again.

Nancy, I am so sorry about your dad’s passing. I didn’t know his heath had been declining. I know 98 is “good innings”, as my husband would say, but it’s still hard. Enjoy making the photo boards and spending time with family and friends. Smile, laugh, and remember all the fun times. Sending hugs to you and your family.

Nancy: deep sympathies from AZ. So sorry to hear. It has to be very difficult nonetheless. He had a long life and I'm sure you have some wonderful cherished memories to give you peace. BIG HUG!!

Quick check in.

jEMEZ MT TRAIL RUN-RR:
YES!! I FINISHED!! The ascent was absolutely challenging, almost 9,000 ft which I'm use to but this had sooooo many switchbacks, which is not the case in my hiking/jogging Mt. Eldon near home. Goal was to finish in 3:30-4:00 hrs. considering my knee issue. I could bend it and no pain, just achy most of the time. I didn't run at all ALL WEEK and I really felt it. My whole run was sluggish. But I just maintained the run/walk strategy. Mostly technical portions on the ups and downs, rocky, single track and there was some hard packed dirt on the downhill. However, my stomach got upset after reaching the top, around 7 miles........ kept hydrated throughout, ate when I could but I starting cramping (inner thighs, WHAT?!?). Drank some pickle juice at last A.S., helped the cramping but stomach got more distress. Puked!! And then puked again!! No energy left, legs felt like cement the last 2 miles. ONgoodness, the last mile was the LONGEST MILE EVER!! And the last 300 ft or so was UPHILL, between huge boulders with room only for ONE runner, holy cow!! I let a couple of 50 milers go first before I went. Yes, totally relieved I made the switch from 50K to 15 miler. Overall, it was a great course, love it!! And, I'm just happy to have finished.........even before some other runners, LOL!!
Finish time: 4:16:50. 194/243 OV. 13/21 AG. Female 95/131. YAY!!!

I'm still in NM. Recovery is going well. Minimal soreness, yippee!!
Will be driving up to CO later this week, camp and then onto SD for Sunday's trail marathon!!

Will try to check in again when I can!!

Nancy,

I am very sorry about your dad. It's still hard even when someone has had a very full life.
I hope you got to enjoy your time with your family, despite the reason. You and your family are in my thoughts.
