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.
If you would have told Becky Nye at her first Moms on the Run class in 2012 that she would one day run a marathon, she would have called you crazy.
“I was overweight, 42 years old, not the least bit athletic, and had never run more than a 100-yard dash in high school.” But six years later, she did it. Along with four other Woodbury MOTR teammates, she crossed the finish line at the Fargo Marathon on May 18.
“I am living proof that nothing is impossible if you want it, you work hard for it, and you surround yourself with people who believe in you,” testifies Becky.
Being part of Moms on the Run is so much more than belonging to a running group. Your MOTR teammates become your family. Your running journey becomes an adventure. And we want to see your photos of that adventure this summer!
