Moms on the Run National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, regularly shares training tips to help us strengthen our running, fitness and health. This week we dive into the first of our stretch series, with today's tip focusing on calves. As runners, it's important to stretch our calves as it will help prevent injury and improve running form.
We want to thank all of you who participated in our "Your Place, Your Pace" Virtual Run 4/26-5/3. We are grateful for the support of 226 runners (and their families and furry friends) who donned race bibs in our honor. Our Moms on the Run community is full of creative, active, strong families!
Congratulations to Erin Kiok with Prior Lake Moms on the Run. She is our lucky winner, selected at random from all participants, who received a free pair of shoes from our friends at Run N Fun.
In conjunction with the virtual run, we also had fun awarding more than 20 other prizes on Facebook and Instagram. Prizes included gift cards to support local businesses, gift certificates to the MOTR store, our new MOTR teal tee and #MOTRstrong strength band sets.
Congratulations to the following winners:
