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 Rain and stretch marks (chafing?)

I went for my first 3-mile run in the rain today. I came home bright pink allover (everything makes me turn pink!).

After my (lukewarm) shower, my skincolor had returned to normal; except for the skin around the stretch marks below my navel, they were still bright pink.

What is that? Just bloodflow acting differently because my skin is stretched? Chafing from the floppier skin bouncing under my wet tech T-shirt? Should I apply body glide there? wear a warmer shirt?

It doesn't/didn't hurt, but I'm not sure if it's going to become a problem as i continue to run in the rain?

Does this happen to anyone else?

Hmm. I've never had this happen. If it's not tender I would just leave it alone. But you could always use a bit of bodyglide just in case, it won't hurt anything! 🙂
