OUR PROGRAM

Moms on the Run is a structured fitness program for women of all ages (not just moms) and fitness levels. Get in shape–and have a fun time doing so. Run your first 5K, improve your speed and endurance or stay motivated in your walking routine.

We help busy women discover (or rediscover) the path to a lifetime of physical fitness. We focus on interval training to increase cardiovascular fitness levels and maximize metabolism benefits. You’ll start right where you are and walk, jog or run your way to a first race or personal record.

 If you’ve been searching for the motivation to get your start as a runner, this program is for you!

It's officially Women's History Month! This is a month of commemorating and encouraging the study, observance and celebration of the vital role of women in American history. These are the women who paved the way for us to know that there is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish. 💪

We will start with a woman in history who played a pivotal role for women, especially in the sport of running, Katherine Switzer.

Katherine Switzer was the first woman to officially run the Boston Marathon (another woman, Bobbi Gibb finished in 1966 and 1967, but did not register and therefore was not official
It's officially Women's History Month! This is a month of commemorating and encouraging the study, observance and celebration of the vital role of women in American history. These are the women who paved the way for us to know that there is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish. 💪 We will start with a woman in history who played a pivotal role for women, especially in the sport of running, Katherine Switzer. Katherine Switzer was the first woman to officially run the Boston Marathon (another woman, Bobbi Gibb finished in 1966 and 1967, but did not register and therefore was not official "on the books" and mostly flew under the radar). It was previously believed that a woman simply could not run 26 miles, thus, women were not allowed to register for Boston. However, Katherine registered using her initials only, and donned a hooded sweatshirt before starting out of the race gate. After her start, it was discovered that a woman was running the race, and there were attempts to shove her down and also grab her race bib - thus disqualifying her from the run. Despite the attempts of violence - she persisted. She said of the race, "I knew if I quit, nobody would ever believe that women had the capability to run 26-plus miles. If I quit, everybody would say it was a publicity stunt. If I quit, it would set women's sports back, way back, instead of forward. If I quit, I'd never run Boston. If I quit, Jock Semple [the assailant] and all those like him would win. My fear and humiliation turned to anger." Through her bravery, Katherine shattered the glass ceiling for women in sports everywhere, showing us that we just need the courage to believe in ourselves, and the resilience to keep putting one foot in front of the other. Now we are coming to YOU all to help us make a list of impactful women in history. Name one of your favorite women in history and tell us why they have been impactful to you! Here's to strong women everywhere - may we know them, may be them, may we raise them! #momsontherun #momsontherunusa #fitnessfunandfriendship #strongertogether #lovemyteam #womenshistory #katherineswitzer
