On Mother’s Day weekend, I thought it the perfect time to celebrate some of my most favorite moms. You’ve heard me rave about how great our Moms Run This Town group is and I wanted to take this opportunity to share more with you about why I love my moms running group so much. I went straight to the source, the moms themselves, and picked some of the most powerful comments to share today.
Why I Love My Moms Running Group:
“..because it breaks down the fallacy that working mothers/stay-at-home-mothers/moms who work part-time can’t get along. We’re all mothers and we’re all runners, and in those endeavors we’re all each other’s cheering section and support system”
“They remind me that taking care of yourself is equally as important as taking care of your children”
“it helps keep me accountable and push myself but also accept that no matter where I am in my training/ exercise goals, I fit right in”
“because when you need help and don’t want to/can’t ask for it, your friends appear with food, offers to babysit and time spent together to take your mind off of things and keep you company. The bonds you forge in the rain, 7 miles in, at 6am on a Saturday are pretty darn strong”
