A Salute to Ultimate Runner Moms
With Mother's Day just 10 days away, it seems fitting to kick off our annual Salute to Running Moms (recite with us now...annual salute to proclaim). Each year (look back at 2008 and 2009) we pause for the cause to celebrate all mom's out there who are starting to run, continue to run, return to running or run better while fulfilling their motherly duties.
This year we would like to honor moms in a couple of ways:
- Collect stories of ExtraOrdinary running moms who deserve a shout out - we think they deserve some recognition and you deserve more running stories to read. What makes a running mom an ExtraOrdinary Ultimate Runner Mom? The fact that they run and they are a mom. Both are hard.
- Help those families and friends who are clueless when it comes to Mother's Day gifts. Yeah sure, the day isn't about gifts. But there is bound to be something, so we might as well give husbands and kids a hand and point them in the right direction.
If you know of a mom who deserves her story told and her running celebrated, drop by the Lounge (The Ultimate Runner section) and take a few minutes to pen her story. Don't forget links to her blog or site so we know who she is! Sometimes there is no greater present to a mom than recognition of all that she does!
But for those times when there SHOULD BE a greater present.....
Drop by the forum and leave your two cents on the Ultimate Runner gift for a mom. You can be serious or have some fun with it! Tell us what you think running moms really want or need for Mother's Day.
We will choose a winner for each category on Wednesday, May 5 and gift them with a copy of our new book, The Ultimate Runner. So act fast! The storyteller and ultimate running mom will both receive the book as will the person with the great running mom gift ideas and the significant mom in their life.
We are serious about our salute and would love it if you could spread the word - the more chatter about moms the better!
