XTERRA Footwear likes Cougars and Me


The smart people at XTERRA Footwear asked me if they could sponsor my blog. “We think you’re funny,” they said, “and we want active moms to know our shoes are great for running extreme races, or walking around your neighborhood while pushing a jog stroller, or chasing your toddler around the park.” So I looked […]

Come Run with Me!


Dear Chubby Mommies, Not so Chubby Mommies, Non-Mommies, Slow Runners, Walkers, and anyone else: I’m going to run every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 9:00 a.m. from the FootZone store, downtown Bend, Oregon. Please join me! The store opens at 10:00, but I figure if we start and end there, we’ll always find each other. […]

Running While Sneezing


I’m sick. Meh. Poor me. But the sun’s out, and I decided I need fresh air more than I need to sit here in a dark room staring at the computer, feeling sorry for myself. Besides, it’s just a cold, not Swine Flu. Hey, whatever happened to Swine Flu, anyway? So, I’m running with a […]

Aerobic Housecleaning?


My kid has been sick all week and my husband’s out of town. It’s interrupting my running routine. My kid’s old enough that I can run to the store to buy him 7Up while he watches reruns of iCarly with a bucket nearby, but I do feel kinda guilty leaving him for an hour to […]

Running in the Rainforest


My husband got a great job making Facebook games at Playdom . So we’re leaving the Sage Brush and Juniper of Central Oregon’s High Desert and moving back home to the ultra-fertile Willamette Valley and Eugene, Oregon. Eugene is home to Nike, thousands of hippies who show up for the Oregon Country Fair, the late, […]

Chubby Mommy Running Club at the Beach


This is me and my friend Sissy. She just got a beach house. I liked her before she got the beach house, but now I’ll love her forever. Sissy has many friends who love her unconditionally. I’ve been on a couple of fun trips with this group in the past, including a jaunt to Cindy’s […]

Running With Babies


These are not my babies. I don’t even know them. I met these babies at The FootZone in Bend last week. They were there with their mother, I think. They went on our fun run with us, and they were much faster than me. I remember running with babies. I have 3 kids, all 3 […]

Get Into the Groove…


Some days I feel like a break-dancer. Things move fast, I’m zipping around in circles and it feels like my head is spinning. Except if I actually try to spin around on my head while kicking my legs up in the air to get the momentum going, I’d break something. Like a lamp, or a […]

Chunking It Up with “Run Like a Mother’s” Sarah Bowen Shea

Sarah’s a full time freelance writer and contributing editor for Runner’s World and Shape magazines. She also writes for Self, the […]

Running with Inga the Wolf Dog: he loves me, I swear it


I went running around the Deschutes River Trail in Bend today with Roxanne (not her real name) and her dog Inga (not his real name.) Roxanne runs faster than me, so I usually bring my camera. Roxanne is a professional photographer, so it’s easy to make her stop every half mile and take a picture […]
