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 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.

Post Extreme hunger and fatigue with periods
on: March 14, 2013, 20:27

The week before my period starts I can't get enough to eat! I over-eat at meals and snack like crazy. (And ruin any good eating I've done all month). I am also so very tired and feel like I cannot get through the day without a nap. I am 43 and my periods are regular but I have been like this for the last 3 years probably. Is this "normal" or something I should see my obgyn about? Anyone else out there with advice or similar problem? Thanks.

Hoping it's normal because I am exactly the same way. I especially crave sweets the week before.

Oh gosh...thank you for asking this! I noticed with my last period, I was the same way. I was insatiably hungry and could not eat enough. I hope this is normal, too.
