After seeing posts from the Lakeville/Burnsville group, Jamie had ‘join Moms on the Run’ on her to-do list for a while. Last spring, the stars finally aligned and Jamie Schmitt registered for her first season.
One of the best parts of running is showing her 3-year-old daughter, Brooklyn, the joys of getting out and being healthy. Brooklyn often joins her mom and other kids to run now, and is quick to ask, “Are we going running with the ladies?”
While enjoying this sport with her daughter, Jamie has also come to appreciate the comradery of the group and loves the tips and support from Coach Kim, especially when they’re out on hills. Doing it together, pushes Jamie to drive a little harder and lift a little heavier. “It’s inspiring to see every level come together and motivate each other on the group runs and intervals.”
At Moms on the Run, our volunteer and head coaches are critical to the success of our program. At every location around the country, we have amazing women who have a passion and zest for running, who are committed to helping our members class after class, and who encourage and uplift each member — no matter what level they're at. There are so many women who continually impress us, year after year. This year, Beth Jensen, owner and coach with White Bear Lake /Shoreview Moms on the Run, is our 2019 Twin Cities' Most Inspirational Coach.
Selected from some amazing nominations at our annual Celebration Event last weekend in Minneapolis, Stephanie Hoffmann is Moms on the Run Twin Cities' 2019 Most Inspirational Member.
A new member this season to Moms on the Run, Stephanie says, "It's hard for me to take such an honor, but I truly am touched and I hope that my story can help others feel more safe to share their struggles. Maybe on a run, maybe over coffee, maybe over text...whatever that is, Moms on the Run is a safe place to start the process of sharing and also getting healthy."
