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!

#232: “Stacked” Races: How to Run Multiple Races in One Weekend
Sarah and her new occasional co-host Amanda Loudin dive into the mind-boggling world of “stacked” races: multi-event weekends that have participants taking on several races on consecutive days. Sarah and Amanda are joined by three mother runners who are veterans of these challenging undertakings. First up and fresh off her second running of the Twin Cities Loony Challenge is Kate Walton, who stresses the importance of tending to recovery. She recommends a homeopathic remedy that helped her legs feel (relatively!) fresh in a 10-mile race the morning after doing back-to-back 10K and 5K races. Next up is a laughter-filled chat with Jindy Garfias, who ran her first-ever marathon the day after running a half-marathon at Disney World as part of the Goofy Races. Jindy offers a clever way to prep for races in hot, humid Florida, and discusses why sleazy Halloween costumes work well for race attire. Finally, Chicago-based mother runner Trisha Muro offers a slew of practical advice, covering topics including massage, nutrition, hotel selection, and training. Two books Trisha recommends for training and race-day nutrition recipes: The Feed Zone and The Feed Zone Portables. And speaking of books: Before bringing on the guests, Amanda talks about her, “journal of crap,” and how writing is like running.
