This month’s inspiring mom is Michele, in her third year with the Coon Rapids-Bunker Hills, MN franchise, and mother of Grace, our 2015 Healthy Holiday Challenge winner. Michele credits Moms on the Run with making her a better runner through interval training, cross-training and strength training. “I also need to take care of myself, physically and emotionally, and running does that,” Michele says. “I’m a better parent when I take care of myself.” Michele has tried to set a good example when it comes to being active. Grace ran her first 5K just 18 months ago, before going on to compete for her school’s varsity cross-country team as a ninth-grade beginner. Last month, she earned 401 total points as part of our challenge. “I’m so proud of Grace’s persistence and determination,” Michele says. Both of you inspire us!
