Seriously, I thought I was tall. Sarah and Dimity are awesomely tall (and fashionable, and glamorous). Dimity is so tall, in fact, that she calls herself “Taller than the Transamerica Pyramid” on their website. I adored both of them and left the party feeling very inspired, grateful and (a tad) tipsy.
I “met” Dimity the first time when she asked me to be a part of “Follow this Mother” on their blog. My post was featured here: https://anothermotherrunner.com/2011/11/16/follow-this-mother-71/, and I was honored to be a part of it.
When we walked into the party, I saw Dimity and Ilana introduced us. “This is Meredith,” Ilana said.
“Nice to meet you, Meredith,” Dimity said.
“Oh, I’m Swim Bike Mom.”
Squeal. “OH! Swim Bike Mom! Yeah yeah yeah!”
I love Mother books and I especially love the tagline: “How to Get Across Any Finish Line – and Not Lose Your Family, Job, or Sanity.” I am of the opinion that running (and triathlon) is directly the reason you WILL NOT, as a working mother, lose your sanity…
The book release party was incredible. Met lots of ATL area bloggers and women. The Mothers gave away awesome goody bags (I won a Lucy gift certificate!). They had several giveaways from Nuun, Yurbuds, and Altra (Zero Drop) footwear.Plus, I had just received the go-ahead to remove Wilson, the boot, so I was feeling pretty good.
Great night full of amazing women and inspiration. Thanks, Mother Runners.
