Happy Mother’s Day Mother Runners!

HAPPY MOTHER’s DAY! 

I love being a Mom! Don’t get me wrong, there are days when it’s HARD…so HARD but I love being a mom. Lately, I’m finding that I’m holding on a little longer, sitting a little longer, watching a little longer as my girls are growing out of the toddler stage and into little girls.

I call myself a “mother runner” with pride. It was not an easy road going from being super active to pregnant, delivering two babies and trying to get back into shape. I worked hard at it and I’m not perfect to this day but I’m happy and healthy and that’s what matters.

Signs You Are A “Mother Runner”:

It’s never a dull moment – sometimes you plan a run and it doesn’t happen as your kids have other plans for you. Your kids know you are a mother runner but their views on “your running” can sometimes be hilarious!

Your kids understand that when Mommy says she is going for a long run, she’s going to be a while.

Sometimes they want to run with you.

Most times, they don’t want to hug you post run!!! Ewww, sweaty mommy! 

They cheer you on at your runs or make signs for you when you get home! (2014)

Last but not least….I’ve been called a “KAMR” by my husband one day, to which I looked at him and said “WHAT?”. Your a “Kick Ass Mother Runner”! At first I thought it was funny but then took a moment to really think about that. It actually made me tear up because I would have NEVER called myself that.

What I’m most proud of as a Mother Runner? That my girls want to run just like me!

Happy Mother’s Day to my Mom! xo

  1. Hey, I’m Timea from http://www.trainstrongtolivestrong.com. Just wanted to say I have really enjoyed reading this and your kiddies look super-cute in the photos! Although I don’t have kids, I do have two pussycats and they can be equally funny when I am trying to foamroll or do my stretches, they love snuggling up to me or coming underneath me LOL.

  2. I love this. Some days I feel like I don’t take the time to relax and enjoy it enough. Always trying to squeeze everything in. Great reminder that we need to savor every moment and continue to be a great example as a mother runner too 🙂
