My UPS Man Can’t Swim: No IronGirl or IronMan for him!


I like my UPS man. He’s friendly and delivers happy stuff like the Little Big Planet 2 video game that makes 11 year old boys smile with true delight. And, my UPS man is proud of me when he sees the Chubby Mommy Running Club featured in the local paper or on the news. He […]

It’s good to be a tortoise: slow and steady for the long run


Gosh, I’m proud of myself. I would take a bow, but I might fall over. Please join us in giving ourselves a high five for our 5.5 mile run today! Rebekah, baby Ruby and I bravely went for our longest run yet and we didn’t die! In fact, we actually surprised ourselves, and felt pretty […]

How to Chi-Run a Half Marathon without using your legs


“I’m going to teach you how to run without using your legs,” said Keith McConnell at this week’s Sunday morning Chi Running Workshop at the Eugene Running Compnay. “You’ll just use your legs for balance, your body to move, and gravity for the rest.” Huh, I said to myself. This sounds like magic. I like magic. […]

Chi Running Workshop: How to Lean into Pain-Free Running


Wish: I want to run a half marathon. Fact: My middle-aged mom knees hurt if I run too much. Solution? Chi Running, said Robin, my running coach. That’s Chi as in Tai Chi, not Chai Tea. Is that just woo-woo stuff, or is it real? I asked. It’s real, she said. And then explained how […]

How to Train for a Half Marathon: Channel your inner animal core!

Running with Dogs and Babies and Friends – Oh My!


We had a baby today! And a dog! Welcome to the club, Rebekah and Ruby. We did the three mile loop today for our Thursday Noon Run in Eugene, and ended up running for at least two miles, by our calculations (which-Robin-calculated-on-her-super-fancy-running watch-I-should-get-one) which made Rebekah and I quite happy, since we’re both starting from […]

Exercising New Year’s Resolutions: Lucky Running


Happy New Year! It’s 1-1-11, which seems lucky, so I think we should talk lucky running. I’ve had a tough couple of months dealing with health problems, which put a real damper on my running career. If you’re a regular reader, you may recall my ongoing love/hate relationship with running. In fact, there was a […]

How to Start a Running Club and Make New Friends Far, Far Away


Welcome to the Chubby Mommy Running Club, St. Clair, MO! These lovely women, lead by Tyrona the Brave (in the pink sweatshirt) showed up for the first CMRC in Missouri today. I wish I could hug them all in person, but I’m meeting them virtually through Facebook pictures and posts! We’ve had CMRC meetups in Bend and […]

Spiritual Running: Listen to Your Body’s Inner Voices


Are you religious, or spiritual, or both? How about neither? Are you looking for God, or the Buddha within? Do you see angels or feel like you’ve lived a few (or 100) past lives and you may have 1,000 more, or do you think this life is it, your one chance to go for it? And what […]

Real Women, Real Runners, Real Running Club


Funny how a bunch of people standing around wearing matching shirts looks like a club! Because, hey, we ARE real, after all. Just like Velveteen Rabbits. These lovely ladies joined me for a photo at Amazon Running Trail in Eugene today for an upcoming article in the Eugene Register-Guard’s Health and Fitness section about the […]
