Our platinum sponsor UCAN sat down with our own National Fitness Director and Olympian Carrie Tollefson, to chat about a wide range of running topics. The next time you head out for a run, put the airbuds in and listen in on this fun video, where you'll get to know Carrie and learn about her love for the running community and how she got into the sport. You'll also hear a funny story about the first time she decided to beat her older sister in a race, and how she loves to encourage us Moms on the Run to stay hydrated!

Do you ever feel like your running routine is just that...routine? Sometimes we get stuck in a rut, but our classes at Moms on the Run are meant to keep us motivated and growing in our running.
