It's the last day of 2019, so happy New Year's Eve! As we look to the new year, we'd like to know some of your fitness questions. We regularly bring you training tips on Tuesdays featuring our National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson. We'd like to do another round of Ask Coach Carrie series of videos featuring your questions. Click on the photo below to watch Carrie's video, then click here for an easy way to submit your question or idea.
We have two great challenges coming up to motivate you in the new year!
First, our Winter Workout Challenge is back! This is a free, fun challenge that will launch January 6. For one week, we will post on our national Facebook and Instagram pages one exercise a day to challenge all levels. If you are just beginning your journey, you can choose to do that day's challenge at one time or throughout the day, making sure to complete the exercise by the end of the day. If you are advanced, you can level up and do the daily challenge twice! (For example, 50 squats becomes 100 squats.) After you complete the exercise, you will post on our national Facebook page: challenge completed. This post will qualify you for that day's entry; one lucky winner on both Facebook and Instagram every day will win our Moms on the Run Touch Screen Gloves. The Winter Workout Challenge will run Monday through Sunday, Jan. 6-12.
Moms on the Run National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, regularly shares training tips to help us improve our running. Today she offers suggestions regarding the question, "How do I stretch when I'm sore?" Listen in!

If you're newer to Moms on the Run, you may not realize that we've only been around for 12 years. Now 50 locations around the country, Moms on the Run has a unique story of how we came to be. Recently, Karissa Johnson, founder and CEO of Moms on the Run, was featured on the Harvest Growth Podcast. While this podcast is geared to those who are interested in business best practices, it's a great conversation about the story behind the business and what makes us different from just another running club.
