Big news: We’ll now be debuting new Another Mother Runner podcast episodes on Fridays instead of Saturdays. Ready for your listening pleasure no matter when your weekend run—or errands, cooking session, craft time, or housework—is.
It’s fitting the longest Another Mother Runner podcast (nearly 90 minutes) focuses on first-time marathoners! Sarah and Dimity chat with three of them to hear all the 26.2 details. First up: BRFs Marianne and Heatherrecount their races at Wineglass Marathon. With their vastly different finish times, these mother runners discuss the difference between “fun” and “satisfied” as post-race feelings. Absurd (a penny-whistle-playing dad!) and beautiful (a butterfly flitting alongside Marianne in the final mile) moments abound.
Then Sarah’s cadet from the Saucony 26Strong program, Laura, stops by to share her Chicago Marathon experience. Laura talks about what plans failed (her “fan plan”) and which one succeeded (hint: It involves GU). She candidly shares her range of emotions since the finish line, and talks about what’s next for this now-committed marathoner. All three gals, plus the hosts, share loads of marathon advice.
And find out how Grumpy Cat (who lives in Arizona, btw) figures into all of this!
