And We’re Off!

February 21, 2010

We’re thrilled you’re here. We’re counting down to the launch of Run Like A Mother–March 23, if you need another entry on your calendar–but more importantly, we’re here to create a dynamic, supportive community of running mothers.

We know there are millions (or at least hundreds of thousands) of you out there: women who already run; who used to be runners but stopped when they had kids; who race yet wonder if training eats up too much family time; who need a gentle nudge to lace up. We’re here to entertain, encourage, and support runners of all levels, whether you want to vent about IT band issues, tout your first half-marathon finish, or ask for recommendations for the best sports bra for your DD ladies. We’ll toss in our own experiences on this blog too, of course, but all celebrations, whining, and questions from you are strongly encouraged.

That said, we’re writers and runners–and not IT wizards or even fluent in HTML. The only place for reader input so far on this blog is in the comment section–the link to comment is in the upper left corner–where you can agree with us (or blast us) on a post, ask a question, or otherwise contribute. As we grow, our goal is to create a more robust community, where you can find running partners and have forums to address crucial questions like, “Does your child throw a tantrum when you get dressed to run, too?” Option B, if the comment section doesn’t work for you: Contact us at runmother@gmail.com.

Likewise, this blog is a little like an arts + crafts project you see in magazine: We have the gist of it (yes, that sock puppet does look like a penguin) but it’s far from polished (since when do penguins have one wing and three feet?). Like the rest of our lives, it’s a work in progress.

    This book looks so fantastic that it may convert me from a die-hard walker to a runner! What a fantastic name. May the sales roll in.

    Love the site and can’t wait to read the book because I RUN LIKE A MOTHER! I watched the video with my Hannah (4) next to me. And she is now walking around going “You run like a Mutha…” “ Can I run like a Mutha one day?”

    Love the video! Makes me want to go for a run, hairy legs and all.

      My rationale: nobody can see my leg hair anyway. Or so I tell myself. Thanks for reading.

    Can’t wait to purchase 25 of your books. Proud father and husband of those that Run Like a Mother.

    Great, great site. I love the banner/logo too. It is so perfect! I want a running shirt with that logo 🙂

    • February 23, 2010 6:18 pm

      Thanks everyone for your support and enthusiasm–we’re SO excited to launch this mother. (Special props to John for 25 copies!? Love it!). Molly: we do have shirts that have the logo, and we’re going to sell them on the tour. They’re just cotton tees, though, although technical may be the next order. We don’t have them up on web yet b/c not sure how/if we have time right now to do e-commerce, but we can certainly do special orders.

      Again, thanks so much!

  20. February 23, 2010 2:49 pm

    I’m spreading the word every chance I get!!! We running mommas so rock…

    Congrats on the new site! Looking forward to the book!

  23. February 24, 2010 5:00 pm

    Can’t wait! I’m so excited for you gals. 🙂 Launching a book is such a rush – especially when the book is great like I know this one is!
