Thousands of women have been a part of Moms on the Run over the years, but only one — besides our founder — has been with us since "Mommies in Motion," the original mom and baby fitness class in 2007 where the idea for Moms on the Run was born. That honor goes to Heather Mihm of Forest Lake Moms on the Run. Heather exemplifies our ideal of #MOTRstrong, and we're so grateful and proud to have her as a member and coach for 15 years! Read more of her story and learn why we're honoring her with a special 15th anniversary edition of Most Inspiring Member.
#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!
Shakopee (MN) Moms on the Run was recently featured in Shakopee Valley News. Angie Burgess, franchise owner of Shakopee Moms on the Run, shared about the benefits of staying active outdoors this time of year.
“Mental health-wise, I think it’s huge,” she said. “People start to, as the weather gets colder, kind of just head indoors. Just getting that fresh air being outside — I think everyone will agree just how much better you feel afterwards.”

Today, Moms on the Run National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, talks about accountability. Accountability is an important element in our training at Moms on the Run. Let's face it: Most days, you will never roll out of bed for an early morning run or show up to class after a long day of work or kiddos unless you know people are waiting for you! Accountability partners make it more likely that you'll attain your fitness goals, and having a community of like-minded people to work out with makes it more fun. At Moms on the Run, our tagline is "Fitness, Fun & Friendship," and accountability is part of that "friendship" community we form on our teams. To find a location near you, click here.
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!
