Another Mother Runner
About This Show
This weekly podcast explores the intersection of running and mothering; it was launched in 2011 by the authors of RUN LIKE A MOTHER: HOW TO GET MOVING AND NOT LOSE YOUR FAMILY, JOB, OR SANITY. Host Sarah Bowen Shea, a mom of three and veteran of a dozen marathons, is joined by a rotating coterie of co-hosts and often a guest expert to discuss topics ranging from how to reach a big race goal to the value of a best running friend, and everything in between. Training, nutrition, motivation, mental toughness, TMI issues: These mother runners cover it all (and then some). This witty, conversational podcast makes a great running partner because these gals do all the talking—even on the uphills!

#261: Behind the Scenes with Two Race Directors
7 days ago
Sarah and co-host Dimity chat with two race directors-- Virginia Brophy Achman of Twin Cities in Motion, and Sarah Ratzlaff with ZOOMA, who also worked for runDisney for 11 years. This episode kicks off with a long catch-up session between the AMR co-founders. Find out what Sarah’s watching on Netflix—and why Dimity isn’t. The duo’s conversation winds up with fast-food reminiscences from childhood. When Virginia from Twin Cities Marathon joins the jabber, she shares the 20-degree rule of marathoning plus the port-a-potty ratio favored by race directors. (Who knew?!) Virginia shares race etiquette tips, plus advice on organizing a local race. Sarah Ratzlaff (a.k.a. “Other Sarah”) makes the ladies laugh with behind-the-scenes Disney anecdotes. The trio talk about how the races have changed over the past decade, and Other Sarah tells how she’s bringing her creativity to a boutique race like ZOOMA. Dimity wraps the episode with a heartbreaking, yet life-affirming, tale from the Train Like a Mother Club: Be sure to listen to the end of the show!
