S is for seriously swift moms

Mother of: 1.5
My last run: was with my 2.5 year old in the Chariot on snowy and icy roads while 7 months pregnant.  Makes eight miles fun and hard!

*Her son, Miles, was out getting in his miles.
My last run was: one of my favorites.  I met a group of great friends to trail run.  It had snowed, so everything was quiet and white.  We saw many deer and no other runners or walkers.  A very peaceful, energizing run!

 

Sheryl
Mother of: 1.5 (.5 is due May 2010)
Without running: I know I wouldn’t have made it through certain times in my life as well as I did, and I know it will help me always.


Shannon
Mother of: 1
My last run was: hard. I’ve been so focused on my next trip to Afghanistan for my non-profit that I have been putting running on the back burner.

*The tiger belongs to somebody else.
On my last run: My heart felt at peace, and I was truly happy. No one was asking me a question. No one was asking me to find something. No one was telling me they needed something. No 5-year-old girl drama.  No hard 7th-grade math homework questions to help with. It was just my rhythmic footsteps on the blacktop street, and a huge smile on my face.

 

Sara
Mother of: 2
Running is: my everything. If I used any other word to describe it, I would be limiting what it means to me, and I can’t do that.

Mother of: 8
Until the weather improves: I’ll continue running on the dreadmill while seriously jamming out to Michael Jackson!  I crank up his Dangerous Tour on DVD and Moonwalk in my mind…with love, l-o-v-e.

 

Sarai
Mother of:2
Without running: I just don’t know where I’d be today. My body changed after having my first baby. I was overweight and depressed and running gave me an even a better version of me.

*18, 16 and 12: My babies are almost all grown up!
Best running memory: Wedging the birth of my youngest daughter between the 1997and 1998 Boston Marathons.  Ran Boston in 3:02 when Hannah was only 12 weeks old.  NO IDEA how I pulled that one off!

Sherri
Mother of: 2 kids and 1 puppy, named Oso.
My last run was: the  New Orleans Half Marathon with my 2 girlfriends. It was a blast! Lots to look at while running with two of the coolest gals around. The miles flew by!


Sonal
Mother of: 3
My first 5K: seemed so daunting.  I didn’t follow any method, but sort of fell into it. Running has been a learning process since the: finding the right shoes, the right orthotics, the right fuel, etc. An inexact, unorganized journey.

Mother of: one proud medalist and one excited Spiderman
I used to think: I ran for me. Now I know I run for them too. It keeps me sane and healthy, and sets a fantastic example of a strong mom. My favorite recent run was joining my 7-year-old daughter in a family triathlon!

My last run was: The Santa Cruz Half Marathon, which was my fist half ever. Despite shin splints and windy, rainy weather, I finished. I can’t wait to do it again!

Staci
Mother of: 2
I started running in January 2010 because: my mom went through chemo last year (she’s cancer free now: yeah!) and my dad was deployed January 5th (yes, I said my dad).  Those two things motivated me to get my butt running, which has always been challenging for me. Watching my parents handle their ‘problems’ made me realize I could suck it up and run a few miles.

Mother of: 2
Before my last half-marathon:  I hadn’t realized I’d lost some weight and my skirt started falling down right after the start. After a mile of holding it up, I stopped used safety pins from my bib to take in the waist. Lesson learned: run in the gear at least once before you race!

Sam
Mother of: 2
In “real” life:  I often feel lumbering, clumsy, and aging. But on a run, I am strong, fast, beautiful, triumphant, generous, optimistic, and fabulous. And when conditions are good, I can carry those feeling with me, post-run.

Running: has taught me that I can get through anything in life by just putting one foot in front of the other.

Sherri, has two blogs
Mother of: 3
Running is: my escape, my air, and my passion. I am an all-weather girl; I’d rather run outside in the dark, in sleet, rain and snow before I will get on the dreadmill.

 

Sheryl
Mother of: 1 daughter
I grew up: watching my dad run races and admire his dedication to his health and running. I aim to be that type of role model for my daughter and for fitness to be a part of her life!

 

Samantha
Mother of: 3
I am training alongside my husband: for my 1st half marathon in October 2011.  We will be running 13.1 miles together to celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary.

 

Sheena
Mother of: 1
In six months: I’ve gone from running less than a mile at a time, to running a half-marathon. My goals are getting higher and higher the more I run!

 

Shawna
Mother of: 1
I run in sleet, snow, and crazy-ass wind: and most of the time I spend half the distance trying to give myself a good enough excuse to stop, turn around, and go home because it’s that unpleasant. But I do it.
