Another fall marathon season is upon us, so Sarah and Dimity chat up two mother runners who are both taking a 26.2-mile victory lap on Sunday, October 6. While they are both novice marathoners, they are very different runners. First up: Carrie Tollefson, an elite mid-distance runner who competed in the 1500 meters in the 2004 Olympics, who is running the Twin Cities Marathon a mere three months after giving birth to her second child. Then the gals talk to Stephanie Rice, also a mom of two, who is running the Portland Marathon (after following the Marathon: Finish It plan from Train Like a Mother. Both ladies talk about taking on the unknown, as well as juggling being a mom, working full-time, and training to go long. Find out what happened, for the first time ever (!!), to Carrie on a recent training run. We’ll just admit here: We still love her, even though it took her this long.
