Kristen Genet, coach for Blaine and Lino Lakes Moms on the Run, calls the North Shore of Minnesota her happy place. Overlooking Lake Superior, the North Shore is home to the Superior Hiking Trail, a 310-mile trail that traverses the Sawtooth Mountain Range from Duluth, MN to the U.S.-Canadian border. For 16 hours, two minutes and thirty seconds, Kristen experienced the highs and lows — 25,000 feet of elevation changes — of those forest trails to complete her biggest challenge to date: the Superior 50 Mile Trail Race. “There was not one moment in the 50 miles I did not enjoy,” Kristen raves. She is a big inspiration to those who know her, and for that, she is our October Inspiring Member of the Month.

Maple Grove Magazine recently featured Moms on the Run in its August 2018 edition. In the article, "Moms on the Run: Women lace up and hit the trails in search of fitness and camaraderie," Maple Grove member Neeka Mohs explains: "You can't go wrong with a group of ladies, who are in your same boat — huffing and puffing and sweating/sparkling along with you."
Jacksonville, Fla. Moms on the Run member Cory Schaefer has endured a few stressors in the last several years: a job relocation from Wisconsin to Florida, a craniectomy on her 3-month-old to correct a birth defect, her mom diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this past March, and a job loss in May. Because of Moms on the Run, she has not only endured those trials, but thrived — losing 70 pounds in the process.
