We were recently contacted by Under Armour's MapMyRun blog regarding tips for running as a family. Carrie Tollefson, Moms on the Run national fitness director, shared her ideas for getting her family involved in the article "4 Tactics to Run As a Family (And Enjoy It)."
Traci Tapani is used to breaking stereotypes. In her 20s, she became co-owner with her sister of a precision sheet metal fabrication company — one of the few women-owned businesses in a heavily male-dominated industry. She has been invited to speak before Congress and the White House regarding women in manufacturing.
Raising two daughters as a single mom, Tapani was searching for a way to get back into running and make new friends when she decided to join White Bear Lake/Shoreview Moms on the Run. But she didn’t do that the traditional way, either. In fact, she is one of the few members to initially join Moms on the Run during Polar Club — hitting the snow-covered trails in Minnesota in frigid January.
