Happy New Year from all of us at Moms on the Run! It's been proven over and over that movement is not only essential for our physical health but our mental health, as well. Today, National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, encourages us to commit to fitness while giving ourselves grace when it doesn't go according to plan.
#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!
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.
At Moms on the Run, November is MOVE-ember! Join us for a fun challenge where you'll move 30 minutes a day for 30 days. Your movement does not have to be running — it just has to be steady. Get creative: dance, vacuum, clean out the garage, scrub the shower — anything that gets the blood pumping!
During this challenge, you'll receive four weeks of accountability to complete your goal, a movement tracker, our new Moms on the Run water bottle with time markers (to remind you to hydrate!), and opportunities to win prizes!

Today, Moms on the Run National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, talks about cross training. What is cross training and what are the benefits for runners? Cross training is any activity that complements your running training and makes you a better runner. Examples include strength training, swimming, cycling, walking and hiking, yoga and pilates. Cross training helps prevent injuries, improves running efficiency and endurance, helps target specific deficiencies, prevents burn-out and over training, gives you athletic range and accelerates recovery. Listen in and incorporate cross training into your schedule!
