    #417: Running and Periods!

    Sarah and Molly, the Queen of TMI, have a bloody (had to do it!) good conversation about periods with Dr. Jennifer Hallowell, a Massachusetts-based OB/GYN, mom of two, and self-described “serial half-marathoner.” In answering questions culled from Facebook, the good doctor details:

    how to get rid of having periods + clever ways to reduce flow;

    methods to manage PMS symptoms;

    non-tampon/pad options (so many!), including an online comparison chart;

    menopause misconceptions; and,

    how to not feel “like a bloated hippo running in quicksand” right around your period.


    After random, laughter-filled chitchat, the guest jumps on at 10:13.

A connection I didn’t realize I was craving

I was a runner before having my first baby and have listened to running podcasts for several years. But as I labored through those first miles coming back after baby (and yes, it was a different kind but still a laboring effort), my normal podcasts just weren’t as motivating. When I found AMR, I found so many things: connection to other runners just like me, understanding and compassion about how to run with kids and the physical, mental and emotional struggles that accompany that, and hope that I could still do this sport that I love even though my world had drastically changed. There were moments out on a run that I had to walk for a minute because I was choked up with emotion from merely feeling like there were other runners out there who get me and my mother runner struggles. And listening to Sarah and Dimity and the BAMR community helped me see that even though I’m in the middle (let’s be honest, beginning) of the baby years, I can enjoy running now, and my running can continue to evolve as my family grows and grows up.

My people

When I found Another Mother Runner I felt like I’d finally found my people. Love listening to this show and love how it’s geared closer to me than some other more elite-focused running podcasts. Keep up the fun listens!

My favorite podcast!

I am a huge fan of AMR and I’m so thankful I stumbled across this podcast years ago. Sarah and Dimity, and the AMR community are a great asset to my running life. And I absolutely love when Molly cohosts!
