Doozy for Dimity Contest Winner

Last week, we wrapped up our Doozy for Dimity Contest!

Congratulations to Kimberly who will receive the prize package below plus a $10 iTunes gift card!


Kimberly sent in her winning question via Facebook. She asked Dimity the following totally relate-able question:


Dimity answered in true Bad Ass Mother Runner fashion! Of course! We expect no less.

It was a great pleasure meeting Dimity and we thank her SO MUCH for her response to Kimberly’s question!

The Speaker Event was fantastic, the SkirtSports folks are as sweet as can be, and Dimity was hilarious and witty and charming. Here is just a snippet of her hour long talk.

I left the event with a huge smile and an arm full of loot. Dimity gave me a copy of Another Mother Runner, I won some awesome neon pink Pro Compression Socks, AND SkirtSports gave me one of their new Lioness skirts to try out; it’s a new design for Fall and so adorable. I had to have a pink one to match my new socks! I can’t deny I am certainly a fan of both Dimity’s and SkirtsSports!


The biggest take-away I got from Dimity’s talk was to not feel guilty taking care of yourself.  You deserve to take the time to care for yourself, to nurture yourself, and to restore yourself. It is just as important as all the demands that others make of you. If we don’t care for yourselves, we aren’t able to care for those who need us so much. Be kind to yourself, everyone!

Are you a Mother Runner? What takeaways do you glean from your fellow runners and friends? Do you like pink too? Tell me all about it in the comments!

A Doozy for Dimity – Question Contest #scootdimity

In a few weeks, SkirtSports is kicking off their new Speaker Series with none other than Dimity McDowell. I was excited immediately because, well…who wouldn’t want to meet Dimity if given the chance? AND maybe, just maybe, I could get Dimity’s thoughts on your most burning running and mothering questions. Such as does she have any toenails left? Or when is it appropriate to to use your BOB to mow down the walkers in the way? According to retired Chick Brooke, Dimity is very funny and gracious, so I’m sure she would be more than willing to give us some insight into these, and your, burning questions.

The Contest Scoop:

1. Tweet us your questions for Dimity using the hashtag #scootdimity. Tweet as many questions as you like, but tweet them by 7/10/15.  After that, the contest ends!

2. We will select the top three questions and announce winners on 7/13/15. I will ask as many of those three as I can at the event.

3. If your question is selected, you’ll win a prize! A fun and awesome prize, no less! Even if I don’t get to ask your question, you’ll still win a prize!

So start thinking and tweeting! The crazier and the funnier, the better. The more genuine and authentic, the better, too.

Let’s show Dimity who the Scoot community is and come up with some doozies for her!
