Happy almost Mother’s Day! You’ve heard me gush over how much I love all of my Moms Run This Town friends many times and today seems like the perfect day to do it again. There are so many things to love about being part of such an amazing group of women but I’ve narrowed it down to my top 5.
Find Your Tribe And Love Them Hard
What I love about my moms run this town group
No Guilt Zone
I’ve learned that a mom who takes time to take care of herself is a happier and healthier mom. A happier and healthier mom is a better mom. I have such respect for the moms who get up a 5 am to carve out some time for themselves before heading home to get the kids out the door and head to work.
Partners in crime
Thinking of doing a Ragnar relay, mud run, triathlon or destination race? Just mention it to these mother runners and they are on board. What ever crazy adventure you can dream up, there’s a gaggle of friends signing up to join you.
Resources for problems big and small
Looking for some new fueling ideas for your long run? Having problems with chafing? Wondering what that foot pain really is? These moms have answers and if they don’t have answers they have support and that support is never ending.
There is no bailing on a run or a workout just because it’s raining or snowing or cold or you need coffee. There is always someone waiting for you and that means you are showing up.
I could write pages about the lifelong friendships I have made with women whom I never would have met had we not connected through running. These bonds, that are formed logging miles, are like no others. We are deeply supportive of each other in a way that I have never experienced before. I am so truly grateful to all of my fellow mother runners and honestly can’t imagine life without them.
Ok I’m done gushing for today. Hopefully I’ve convinced you to find your own amazing group of mother runners. Happy mother’s day to all of you. Hope you have fabulous weekend.
