More than 250 runners joined us for this year's Moms on the Run 5K/10K and Kids Run at beautiful Lake Phalen in St. Paul and online virtually. For our in-person event, the overnight rain moved out and we were greeted with perfect temps for a race! If you ran with us, you can find your race results here. We also have a Google photo album to which you can upload your race photos for us to use and maybe find a photo of you!
The race featured fun for the whole family. The kids were able to take part in face painting, crazy hair and sign making (yay, moms!), before their own 1/2 mile "Run with an Olympian" and kiddie dash. Our after-party included prizes courtesy of Run n Fun, Rachel Baar with BeautyCounter and Norwex, Author and Coach Gabe Cox, UCAN and new Moms on the Run merchandise. We loved the fun food trucks: Inferno Wood Fire Pizza, Powl (smoothies and acai bowls), and Cookie Dough Bliss. And a big thank you to all of our volunteers who helped make the event run smoothly. We're grateful for you!
Moms on the Run National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, tackles another funny but important Ask Coach Carrie question: What should we do if we need the loo while out on our run? Yes, it's inevitable, so something for which you should plan. Listen in on Carrie's tip.
You've trained hard all summer and now you're ready to run your race. But how do you stay motivated after a big race or goal? Moms on the Run National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, talks about this in today's training tip. Enjoy! At Moms on the Run, we celebrate our summer training season with a 5K/10K on Aug. 28. For more information about our event, visit here.
What's your goal for your next race? Well, we bet it isn't to run slower. Ha! No, you're more likely to say, "I want to run fast and feel good!" Right? When you're training for a race, you want your body to peak at just the right time. At Moms on the Run, our learn-to-run signature training literally finishes the season with a 5K/10K. (You can check that out here.) All of our training plans are designed to help our runners peak at the end of the training plan. We want you to run fast and feel good!
Mike Ewaldt was an inspiration to all of us at Moms on the Run, and we are deeply saddened to learn of his passing. Mike and his sister, Niki Ronnan, crossed many finish lines — several marathons, 20-milers, 5Ks, Ragnars and other races — as she ran pushing his wheelchair.
Niki never planned on running until her mom signed her up for Moms on the Run in 2010. She began to take her brother out on the trails with her, calling themselves Team Heart: she was the legs; he was the heart. Niki became a coach for many years with Stillwater and White Bear Lake Moms on the Run.
We want to send our deepest condolences to Niki and her family on their loss. Read more of their story here and watch here. And in memory of Mike, remember “you are lucky you can run.”
