Last weekend was Twin Cities Marathon weekend in Minnesota — and it was a beautiful fall day for a run! Congrats to all of our amazing women who trained hard and ran their hearts out — from 10 mile to marathon to Loony Challenge (5K, 10K + 10 Mile). Check out some of the fun photos from our cheer zone.
What makes running more fun? The ability you have to go anywhere! Today, Moms on the Run National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, talks about trail running versus road running. We want to mix up the type of training we do to surprise our muscles and our minds! Listen in as Carrie talks about the benefits on both the trail and the road.

Jacksonville Moms on the Run member Larissa Faulkner is a woman whose story exemplifies hard work and determination. After joining Moms on the Run three years ago, she's taken on goals outside her comfort zone — and lost 120 pounds in the process.
Larissa's story and uplifting demeanor have inspired several to nominate her as inspiring member. Fellow member June shared: "The person who inspires us in St Johns is Larissa. She is one of most focused, determined women I have ever met and does it all with poise and a quiet confidence. Amazing woman."
Jacksonville Franchise Owner and Coach Amy Magdalein agreed.
"Larissa is amazing," she remarked. "She is a mother of two and her hubby travels a lot for work so she handles all the kid and house duties and didn't take time for herself for a long time. She started running with MOTR in 2019 then took a break during the pandemic but she rejoined us recently and she is killing it! She was overweight and knew she was unhealthy and wanted to get stronger for her babies. She decided she wanted to lose the weight and set her sights on getting healthy and that's exactly what she did. She is one of the hardest working women in our group. She doesn't complain or stop EVER. She keeps moving and challenging herself to do a little more than she did the class before. She is truly an inspiration to us all!"

Shakopee (MN) Moms on the Run was recently featured in Shakopee Valley News. Angie Burgess, franchise owner of Shakopee Moms on the Run, shared about the benefits of staying active outdoors this time of year.
“Mental health-wise, I think it’s huge,” she said. “People start to, as the weather gets colder, kind of just head indoors. Just getting that fresh air being outside — I think everyone will agree just how much better you feel afterwards.”
