WJXT Channel 4 in Jacksonville, Fla., featured Jacksonville Moms on the Run, one of the newest franchises in our Moms on the Run family, on its News 4 Jax morning show on January 29. The show's executive producer was intrigued after driving around town and noticing a Moms on the Run window wrap on the back of a vehicle. Owner Amy Magdalein did a fantastic job sharing the details and benefits of Moms on the Run. Watch the news clip here.
In its latest July/August publication, Duluth, Minn.-based Moms and Dads Today magazine features new MOTR location, Duluth Moms on the Run. The article, titled “Moms on the Run, Sharing Fitness, Fun and Friendship,” introduces Moms on the Run to the Duluth community. Duluth owner Candy Irwin moved last August from Memphis, TN, to the northern Minnesota city, situated on Lake Superior. (Duluth is also home to the well-known Grandma's Marathon.) She was looking for a running group similar to that which she experienced in Memphis, so opening a Moms on the Run franchise was the perfect solution. Since its launch the end of April, Duluth Moms on the Run is proving to be a positive addition to the community. We hope this media coverage reaches more women in the Duluth area who want to join the fitness and fun!
Fargo, N.D.’s Area Woman Magazine recently featured West Fargo Moms on the Run and its partnership with Go Far Woman — a race and expo event celebrating women and girls — in an article titled, “Women on the Run, Going Farther Together.”
A big shout out to Plymouth Magazine, for featuring Plymouth Moms on the Run this month! We just love the title of their story about us: Power Hour! This truly is a great description for how we pack it all into one class. Yes we have the cardio, strength, stretching and educational components, but even more than the fitness, we keep the fun & friendship front and center!
As Mother's Day approaches, we think we need to put out this gentle reminder: Take care of YOU! Healthy moms = Healthy families. For your very own Power Hour, find the Moms on the Run location nearest you.
"We as women are all on a journey to better our health and better our fitness so we welcome you with open arms.” Plymouth Head Coach and Franchise Owner, Jen Vendel
Moms on the Run all began in the suburban town of Forest Lake, Minnesota, where this week the local paper interviewed our Founder & CEO Karissa Johnson about the fast growth of the program the past 10 years.
Karissa speaks of how the program doubled in the first year, and she saw the need to help women in other areas of the Twin Cities without them needing to drive so far. Now with 46 locations in 6 states, 2000 women will participate in the program this year.
“I credit a lot of our success to our great coaching staff, many of whom started as group members,” Johnson said. “The way they are able to transform these women over the 18 weeks is incredible. Some begin the program barely able to run at all ,and in the end they are completing the 5K.”" ~Community Editor, Jason DeMoe
