E is for endorphin-filled moms

Emily
Mother of: 3
Running is: my form of meditation, sanity, peace, and quiet that is just mine. Unless I have the jogging stroller with me.

Running has: always been about me–my health, my mental well-being and satisfying my competitive drive–for the past 20 years. But now it’s also for my son: setting a good example for and instilling healthy habits in him.

Elisa
Mother of: 3 boys
I don’t hire a babysitter: to get my haircut. I hire one to run. The hair can wait.

Erica
Mother of: 4
My running mantra is: I Run Because…I Can (also the name of my blog). To me, it’s like what “forget about it” is to Donnie Brasco: my response to friends and family who don’t run and don’t get it but like to question why I do it.

My running: has been like a roller coaster. I started strong with two marathons in two years, then took it back a few notches, then almost to a grinding halt. I am on a new Run Like A Mother mission: this will be the year that I re-harness my inner runner. Next race:  The first ever Wilson Bridge Half Marathon in September!

Elizabeth
Mother of: 1 (“crazy little boy with a knack for finding trouble.”)
Becoming a mother: taught me I was strong enough to run. After a drug-free labor, I realized I could do anything if I just breathed my way through it. I started by running just one mile, and I haven’t looked back.

 

Elizabeth
Mother of: 4
My grandfather: was the US 10,000M champion from 1946-1948 and was the first American to finish behind Emil Zatopek in the 1948 Olympics. I am not as fast or fiercely determined, but I am truly happiest when out there each morning on the boardwalk along our city’s beautiful beach.

 

 

Elizabeth
Mother of: 2 “beautiful little girls who are my inspiration”
I have decided: “Runner” is a title you give yourself, and I’m giving to myself now.  Anyone can run if they just decide to go and do it.
