As the official training partner for Women Run the Cities, Moms on the Run is back with another training tip: Plan ahead!

In addition, think about things that make the run a bit easier: Have your own hydration stations, know where your bathroom or porta potty stops are along your route and get a few people to cheer you on throughout the course.
