Moms on the Run began 11 years ago with the simple mission of helping women learn to run. While our signature learn-to-run program is still a foundational part of our program, we have helped many women transition from beginner to intermediate and advanced runners. In 2018, we brought Olympian Carrie Tollefson on board to help us continue to meet the needs of our experienced runners. Now in the lead as our National Fitness Director, Carrie shares a few insights into our revamped intermediate training program.
Because friendship is part of our motto, we love to hear stories of how our members connect on the trails. This month's Most Inspiring Members from Shoreview (MN) Moms on the Run connected on the trails with similar pace times, but it was the journey of international adoption that cemented their friendship. When one person's life challenge can be used to help another person through that same experience, everyone benefits, and Krista and Cari are an example of that. Read on to learn more about each of their stories.
