We invited a writer from Twin Cities Moms Blog to one of our classes. It was a cold, rainy spring Minnesota day — not exactly the best day for the first class of spring season. Billing herself as the "Only-Runs-On-The-Playground Lady," Maureen was a bit nervous and excited. But she was about to learn what makes Moms on the Run so different from other running groups.
"The accountability and the energy that came with the other moms at Moms on the Run was just what I needed to know that I could actually learn to run," Maureen writes. "I left that class not only with a boost of long lost confidence, but I also left the class feeling the need to return."
