It’s been exactly a year since I started the Moms Run This Town-McLean group and we’re having a birthday party!
Starting this group a year ago has changed my life. I had been wanting to join a group to run with and just couldn’t seem to find what I was looking for. I heard about Moms Run This Town and their chapter in a nearby city. (If you haven’t heard of MRTT check it out with the link on the home page). I was encouraged to start a chapter in my town and was off and running.
This past year, we have grown to 200 members and added a Co-leader, Alexandra. I have met so many amazing, encouraging, friendly women who I now call friends. I never would have met them had it not been for the group. As our kids get older, we tend to socialize with the moms of similar aged children. Our group has moms from their 30-60’s some are stay at home moms and some are working moms. Our love of running at all levels and paces brings us together each week.
Our local lululemon store at Tysons Corner Mall offered to host a yoga and shopping party for us. Let’s just say I have a little shopping issue and I was definitely all over this.
We had a great turnout for our yoga class and a lot of us realized that running has made our muscles a lot tighter than we thought. The yoga felt great and reminded us that we need to stretch more. We received a little fashion show on cute running outfits and we were off to shop! Uh not a problem here! I got 2 super cute tanks and a pair of capris. You can’t have too many running clothes right?
It was so great to hang out with my MRTT friends! Oh do I miss running with you all!
Who do you run with? Are you in a running group?
