You never know what you’re going to find when you’re plogging! If you haven’t heard of plogging, it is a combination of running, jogging and picking up garbage. In honor of Earth Day, Lakeville/Burnsville Moms on the Run chose to plog during their morning run — and they were literally rewarded with a surprise! Franchise Owner Kim Burggraaf found a $100 bill in the woods as her MOTR group was picking up garbage. They plan to donate to a local environmental group. What a fun full circle moment!
Jacksonville Moms on the Run represented well at the Donna Marathon on Feb. 6. This is the 15th anniversary of the Donna, a national marathon to fight against breast cancer held in Jacksonville Beach.
Eighteen members of Jacksonville Moms on the Run ran the half marathon — resulting in eight PRs! Two Jacksonville members ran their first full — both finished in 5:05. AMAZING!
"The Donna Marathon to end breast cancer is a special race for MOTR Jax!" exclaimed Moms on the Run-Jacksonville Franchise Owner Amy Magdalein. "We had lots of our women running and JUST AS MANY cheering on the sidelines. The community support and feel-good feelings were in full force in Jacksonville!"
