Eliza Fletcher, who was abducted and killed while out on a pre-sunrise run, represents most of us at Moms on the Run — a wife, a mom, a sister, a friend. There have been too many victims, named and unnamed, of this type of tragedy. We shouldn’t have to worry about our safety when we lace up our shoes to hit the trails! This weekend, several of our Moms on the Run locations wore our hot pink running shirts and hit the trails to “Finish Eliza’s Run.” Shout out to Jacksonville Moms on the Run for these photos and their feature on their local news: https://bit.ly/3qyORJo.
Today, Moms on the Run National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, answers another Ask Coach Carrie question: Do I need to run every day? For those who have been around Moms on the Run for a hot minute, you'll know the answer. Listen in as Carrie gives you permission to take days off!
More than 250 runners joined us for this year's Moms on the Run 5K/10K and Kids Run at beautiful Lake Phalen in St. Paul and online virtually. For our in-person event, the overnight rain moved out and we were greeted with perfect temps for a race! If you ran with us, you can find your race results here. We also have a Google photo album to which you can upload your race photos for us to use and maybe find a photo of you!
The race featured fun for the whole family. The kids were able to take part in face painting, crazy hair and sign making (yay, moms!), before their own 1/2 mile "Run with an Olympian" and kiddie dash. Our after-party included prizes courtesy of Run n Fun, Rachel Baar with BeautyCounter and Norwex, Author and Coach Gabe Cox, UCAN and new Moms on the Run merchandise. We loved the fun food trucks: Inferno Wood Fire Pizza, Powl (smoothies and acai bowls), and Cookie Dough Bliss. And a big thank you to all of our volunteers who helped make the event run smoothly. We're grateful for you!
