Another Older Mother Runner ,

Took me from a 10K to the Boston Marathon

I dearly love this podcast and the whole AMR community. Back in 2014 I discovered AMR and did their Proved It 10K Challenge. Wow, what an adventure that unleashed! Since then I've run everything from 5Ks to marathons. I even qualified for, and was accepted into, the 2020 Boston Marathon. At age 60! (And I'm planning to stay at it, so that I actually get to run Boston post-pandemic.) I listen to this podcast every week and can't say enough good things about Sarah, Dimity, and all my sister BAMRs around the world.

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!
