Publisher Comments:

In Run Like a Mother, authors Dimity McDowell Davis and Sarah Bowen Shea offer both inspirational advice and practical strategies to help multitasking women make running part of their busy lives. From their own personal experiences described in the book, the authors understand the various external and internal forces in everyday life that can unintentionally keep a wife-mother-working woman from lacing up her shoes and going for a run. Run Like a Mother is driven by their own running expertise and real-world experiences to assure today's woman that she can be a runner.

The book is essentially a down-to-earth, encouraging conversation with the reader on all things running, with the overall goal of strengthening a woman's inner athlete. Answering questions not addressed by other running books, Run Like a Mother covers topics like: how to find the time between conference calls to get out for a run, how to convince your husband that he should take care of the kids on Saturday mornings so you can train (and not feel guilty about doing it), how running can help post-partum depression, how to actually believe you can run even if you were the slowest kid in the class, how to deal with lulls in energy and motivation when you've been up with a sick kid for four nights straight, and much, much more.

Of course, real achievement is a healthy mix of inspiration and perspiration, which is why the authors have grounded Run Like a Mother in a host of practical tips on shoes, training, racing, nutrition, and injuries, all designed to help women balance running with their professional and personal lives.

Review:

"The authors’ fun and informal writing provides insight and draws the reader into an intimate and candid conversation about all things running." Calgary Herald

Review:

"The authors (and the energetic women they’ve interviewed) offer practical advice for figuring out how to shoehorn those runs into impossibly busy lives." Real Simple

Review:

"If working out has become just one more chore in a day loaded with them, then [the authors] have some advice for you.... This book arrives at the fitness party from the standpoint that women are all in this together." Pittsburgh Post Gazette

Synopsis:

A book for today's multitasking wife/mother/working woman on how to make running part of her busy life to feel inspired, entertained, and validated. With its insider's, close-girlfriend tone and approach, the book establishes an engaging conversation on all things running to strengthen women's inner athlete and, through the authors' personal experiences, inform women about shoes, training, racing, marathoning, nutrition, injuries, life beyond running (husband, kids, job), and a host of practical as well as inspirational topics.

Kate Benson, May 2, 2010 (view all comments by Kate Benson)
Whether you're new to motherhood, running, or both, Shea and Bowen welcome you into the tribe of running mothers. There is no guilt and no judgement. There are also no excuses why you can't get out the door and get moving, one way or another. Great book, especially if you're looking for motivation to get healthier, lose some baby weight, or feel less isolated from a world that doesn't require regular diaper changes.
