It's '80s week at Moms on the Run — and we're always keeping it fun! Today, National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, brings her big bangs and 80s jargon, but also a serious training tip about keeping motivated after a big race. What do you do after you accomplish a big goal to avoid that lull of 'what now?' Carrie shares a few ideas to help us all get after it. Listen in!
We asked some kids at one of our Kids on the Run classes what they thought about themselves, their moms and Moms on the Run. Here are their cute answers...
Name the activity and you'll most likely find a retreat catered to it. Running is no different. Whether you simply want a getaway with your gal pals or a way to take your running to the next level, a running retreat is both beneficial and fun.
Moms on the Run is debuting its first run retreat this fall, led by our National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson. Carrie typically attends and speaks at three to four running retreats each year. Read more on our conversation with Carrie to find out why our running retreat will be worth your investment!
Moms on the Run is great because of the women who are part of our family. In an ongoing series, we'll feature an Ambassador who will share her story with you. First up: Kristen Genet. Kristen's story may sound a little familiar; she was featured as our Inspiring Member in October 2018.
Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Kristen Genet, and I run with the Blaine and Lino Lakes Moms on the Run groups. I have been coaching for the Twin Cities North Metro franchises since 2011, and I started in Coon Rapids at Bunker Hills. I have learned and grown so much over the last several years, in no small part due to the influence of MOTR and the incredible women it brought into my life. MOTR is an important part of who I am. MOTR has brought joy, fulfillment, hard work, challenges, and rewards to my life, and for that I am grateful.
