#10: I'm not a Mom.
You don't need to be a mom to join Moms on the Run! There are some activities throughout the season that include kids, and they are welcome at class (closely supervised by the parents). However, most locations have participants who are not moms. There are also kid-free Ladies Nights Out and running retreats. In addition, Moms on the Run is a wonderful support group for those going through difficulties conceiving children because some of our participants have also experienced infertility. We welcome all women: moms, non-moms, grandmas, anyone who wants to be active in the company of others!
As we turn the page of the calendar to a new year, it's time to set goals for 2023. Moms on the Run National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, shares a great tip about her fitness checklist: Start slow, stay steady. Think about new races, different distances, different workouts you can add to the list to make it challenging and fun. Happy New Year everyone! Cheers to a great 2023.
Our Winter Workout Challenge is back! This is a free, fun challenge that will launch January 2. For one week, we will post on our national Facebook page 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! After you complete the exercise, comment on our national Facebook page: challenge completed. (We also love photos!) Your comment will qualify you for that day's entry. One lucky winner will be randomly selected to receive our prize of the day. The Winter Workout Challenge will run Monday through Sunday, Jan. 2-8. Get ready!
By participating in our challenge you agree to assume all risks associated with exercise.
Today, Moms on the Run National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, gives you strict instructions: Keep the run fun! Change up the workout, run with a new person, make it a game...whatever you have to do, don't let your workout become just another thing on the to-do list. When we're enjoying the workout we'll see the results. Have a great holiday with your family and get after it!
Moms on the Run is excited to host a live podcast during our Run Arizona destination weekend featuring Olympian Carrie Tollefson and Sara Slattery, speaker and author, head coach of men's and women's cross country for Grand Canyon University and successful NCAA and professional runner.
Sara is one of the all-time running greats from the University of Colorado; she graduated in 2003 with a degree in economics and earned a master's degree in secondary and adult education in 2005. She was a four-time NCAA champion, 10-time Big 12 champion and a 10-time All-American as a student-athlete, setting three school records (indoor mile, indoor 3,000 meters and outdoor 5,000 meters). In 2016, Sara was inducted into the Colorado Athletics Hall of Fame.
Sara was a professional distance runner, competing in national and international competitions. In 2007, she was the Pan American Games champion in the 10,000 meters in Rio de Janerio, Brazil. She was an alternate for the U.S. team at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing and has been a member of other U.S. national teams.
Sara and two-time Olympian Molly Huddle co-authored "How She Did It: Stories, Advice and Secrets to Success from Fifty Legendary Distance Runners," an inspiring book about women's athletic achievements. A book signing will follow the live podcast; pre-order the book here.
Moms on the Run National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, will host the live podcast, with special guests Moms on the Run founder Karissa Johnson and OOFOS' Wendi Kremlin, at the Rock 'n' Roll Arizona expo on Saturday, Jan. 14 at 1:30 p.m.
