Tales from Another Mother Runner
Triumphs, Trials, Tips, and Tricks from the Road
Paperback ISBN: 1449449905
"I no longer try to outrun heredity. I run to make my own history."---Nicki, another mother runner Every mother runner has a tale to tell. A story about how she realized, fifteen years after being told that sheâ€™s best being a bookworm, that there is an athlete inside her. Or the one about how she, fifty pounds overweight and depressed, finally found the courage---and time---to lace up her running shoes. Or maybe itâ€™s about setting a seemingly impossible goal---going under two hours in the half-marathon---and then methodically running that goal down and tearing up across the finish line. Or it might be an account of friendship: she was new to town, was having a hard time making friends, was asked to join a group run, and now she's got four BRFs (best running friends) who are her allies, her cheerleaders, her reality checks. Maybe it's just a simple story of the beauty of starting the day off with an endorphin rush. Or, sadly, it could be about how, through the guidance of a thoughtful running friend, she found the space and rhythm to process being raped---and regained her strength and sense of self through every footstep. In Mother Runners, elite runners Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea share not only their own stories of personal triumph on the pavement but also the inspiring stories of many members of the vibrant mother runner community they've built on their popular site, Run Like a Mother. While the common theme is running, the variations that happen through the miles are as endless as the miles themselves: losing weight, gaining confidence, finding yourself, connecting with friends, expecting more, setting goals, dealing with disappointment, figuring out how to train efficiently, clearing your head, reconnecting with your memories, building a better you. Whether you've run more marathons than you can remember, or you're just getting started, you'll find the inspiration you need to get out there, keep pushing, and run like a mother.

Run Like a Mother
How to Get Moving- and Not Lose Your Job, Family, or Sanity
Paperback ISBN: 0740785354
In Run Like a Mother, authors Dimity McDowell Davis and Sarah Bowen Shea offer both inspirational advice and practical strategies to help multitasking women make running part of their busy lives. From their own personal experiences described in the book, the authors understand the various external and internal forces in everyday life that can unintentionally keep a wife–mother–working woman from lacing up her shoes and going for a run. Run Like a Mother is driven by their own running expertise and real-world experiences to assure today’s woman that she can be a runner. The book is essentially a down-to-earth, encouraging conversation with the reader on all things running, with the overall goal of strengthening a woman’s inner athlete. Answering questions not addressed by other running books, Run Like a Mother covers topics like: how to find the time between conference calls to get out for a run, how to convince your husband that he should take care of the kids on Saturday mornings so you can train (and not feel guilty about doing it), how running can help post-partum depression, how to actually believe you can run even if you were the slowest kid in the class, how to deal with lulls in energy and motivation when you’ve been up with a sick kid for four nights straight, and much much more.Of course, real achievement is a healthy mix of inspiration and perspiration, which is why the authors have grounded Run Like a Mother in a host of practical tips on shoes, training, racing, nutrition, and injuries, all designed to help women balance running with their professional and personal lives.
