Heather introduces Amy Bailey, a mother runner in Green Bay, Wisconsin, on this week's show. Amy, who previously lived in the Lansing area for six years as an Associated Press reporter, is among the essayists who contributed to the book Tales from Another Mother: Triumphs, Trials, Tips and Tricks from the Road. This is actually how Heather and Amy met last year -- Heather contributed an essay to this 2015 book as well -- and the two became fast friends given their multiple running and writing connections. As a reporter and then editor for 15 years, Amy has always been a writer, but she didn't write about running until 2009. She only started running a year before that -- a few months after her son was born. Since then, though, she has done a handful of half marathons in each of the past several years. She's regularly running 4 to 5 miles a day on some of the nearby trails. Amy, who is a member of the Oiselle Volee ambassador program, talks with Heather about her love of running in Wisconsin and the midwest. Our neighboring states -- with a shared Great Lake -- are home to a growing number of awesome races and running communities, and Amy and Heather talk about how it's an exciting time to be a runner in the midwest. As the newest contributor to MichiganRunnerGirl.com, Amy will be exploring this very topic as she shares the races and places she loves running here in our beautiful region of the country.
