Do you ever feel like your running routine is just that...routine? Sometimes we get stuck in a rut, but our classes at Moms on the Run are meant to keep us motivated and growing in our running. Winter season is starting up soon. Here in the colder weather states, we offer indoor and outdoor options, such as weekly endurance Polar Runs and yoga for runners. In our warmer weather locations, classes continue with interval training, strength and cardio bootcamps and endurance runs. How else can you stay motivated in your workouts? Platinum sponsor Twin Cities Orthopedics offers some useful tips in their blog: "6 foolproof ways to stay motivated to work out."
White Bear Lake/Shoreview Moms on the Run member Amy Bell says, “If you want to restore your faith in humanity, run a marathon.” Such a sweet mantra coming from someone who thought she’d never run more than 20 minutes around the neighborhood. Today, she has run three Ragnar races, nine half marathons, countless shorter races and, last month, she finished her third Twin Cities marathon — and the one of which she's most proud. “Amy’s positivity and ‘one-foot-in-front-of-the-other’ attitude is an amazing example for so many who think that they aren’t cut out to run,” raves fellow coach Jennifer Fink, who nominated Amy. “She is absolutely an energizer bunny.” And for that, Amy is our Most Inspiring Member for November.
