Whether you're a New Year's Resolution gal or just someone who needs ongoing goals to keep motivated, we're bringing back MOTRvate28, our 28-day (plus 1 for Leap Day!) healthy lifestyle challenge for the month of February. It’s everything you liked about our Healthy Holiday Challenge from years past, with local team accountability to add to the fun*. If you are in one of our southern U.S. locations, you may already be in your active training season and can use this as an extra motivator. If you are in one of our northern locations, use this challenge as a way to prepare for the spring running season!
Two lucky winners will each claim a $100 shopping spree from our online store, where we are adding new items this month. We’ll give one to the top scorer and conduct a random drawing of all participants who check in weekly for the other. We are also offering a little friendly competition between franchises. The city with the highest average score will win our team challenge!
Join the challenge by Jan. 31 by signing up with your local franchise owner.* The cost for the challenge is $28. Everyone who completes the challenge will earn a specially designed long-sleeved tee, valued at $28. Earn points in several healthy lifestyle categories — including cardio exercise, strength training, hydration, nutrition, sleep, self-care — and post every weekend on Facebook. In addition, watch for fun bonus opportunities on Facebook throughout the challenge. Get all of the details, including the challenge tracker, on our MOTRvate28 challenge page.
*If you do not have a local franchise, you are still welcome to participate with us on the national level. Sign up on our MOTRvate28 webpage.
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.
The holidays are approaching, which means it's party season. Tempting appetizers, drinks and a slew of activities can put a damper on all of the work you've done throughout the year toward your fitness and health. Once again, we bring you our annual Healthy Holiday Challenge. Simple and sustainable healthy behaviors are key during this hectic month. Choose what lifestyle habit you want to work on each week and keep us posted on your progress. Our goal is to help you maintain your weight and keep you accountable during this busy, festive season — all while having some fun. And since they were so popular last year, once again we'll be featuring #healthyselfies and additional prize opportunities!

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.”
