Moms on the Run National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, shares about two ideas to encourage us to get active. Join us for MOVE-ember, our new fun accountability challenge to get you moving at least 30 minutes for 30 days. Get out for a brisk walk or run, do yoga, clean your closet, run after your kids — but move your body! Check out more details here.
Also, we're excited to partner with our friends at UCAN to offer the virtual talk and Q & A: "Health and Performance for Active Women." Join Carrie on Wednesday, Oct. 28 at 8 p.m. ET as she talks with Tina Muir, former elite runner and podcaster and Dina Griffin, registered dietician, endurance athlete as they address important topics for active women.

Imagine living in a community where people are already going without food. Enter in a global health pandemic — experts predict COVID-19's impact will leave 265 million on the brink of starvation this year — and you have an even bigger problem. Since our inception, Moms on the Run has chosen to donate 10% of our profits to our charity partner, Feed My Starving Children. This year, Moms on the Run is proud to sponsor the Race to Feed Kids, Sept. 21-26, encouraging families to outrun 2020 and step in the gap against global hunger.
You can be a part of the race by creating a fundraising page here, choosing your activity goal and recruiting family and friends to join you. Your "race" can be any activity you want: run, bike, do chores, rake leaves. This event takes the place of FMSC's annual in-person fundraising gala. Join us in the Race to Feed Kids.

If the current pandemic has taught us anything over the last six months, it’s that our Moms on the Run community rocks! We had 500 participants at our first-ever LIVE national virtual race on Aug. 23.
National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, started us out with a live warm-up via Facebook, then participants logged onto the Charge app to start the race, get cheered on in real time, listen to our personalized race playlist and view race results as our runners crossed the virtual finish line.
As the official training partner for Women Run the Cities, Moms on the Run talks about virtual training and racing. This season is like no other, right? While in-person races are cancelled, virtual races are hot and we want to encourage you to keep after your goals. Stick to your training plan or the one offered at WRTC and give yourself some grace. Pacing for virtual races can be hard on your own but if you prepare by following your plan it won't be such a shock once you get after it race day! On race day, remember to start at your pace. Try not go out too hard and definitely plan some fun along the way!
The virtual Twin Cities Orthopedics’ Women Run the Cities, presented by PNC Bank, is available Thursday, September 10 - Sunday, September 20, 2020.
