You may have seen the pics on our Facebook page of the 10 house parties—a bunch of our tribe getting together for drinks, nibbles, laughs, motivation, race stories, great giveaways and amazing swag bags—we co-hosted in 2012. The shindigs were so much fun that we’re ramping up for round II in 2013, and we’d love for you to join us. We promise, they’re a blast even if you come solo…after all, you already have miles of potential conversation with other guests.

The food alone is worth coming for.

The parties are usually on a weeknight, start around 7, and end by 9:30, which means you’ll be in bed by 10. Which means it’s a late night for me, Dimity. But it’s a sacrifice I’m happy to make.

A posse of running mothers: how could you not want to spend a couple hours with them?

Here are the tentative places we’ll be; we’re doing our best to hit new places of the country. If you live in a nearby area or will be in a city on the designated date, please request an invite through this link.

The only repeats are PDX, Chi-berg, and D.C.

So many smiles; reminds me of a finish line.

Finally, we typically have a mother runner co-host a party with us; if that’s something that’s appealing to you, email us at runmother at gmail dot com, and we’ll let you know the details. And if that is a statement you laugh at (hosting a party is appealing? I’d rather run a marathon), no worries. We still want to see your mother runner smiling face—and those of your friends. (Feel free to forward this to them!)

Again, here is the form to request an invitation. (Don’t be shy!)

    Ya’ll need to come to Austin, Texas. We have a very active running community with lots of mother runners! I’d be happy to co-host too. My husband is a marathon coach with a local marathon running club, listed above, and he specializes in first-time marathoners,the majority of whom are gals. I’m sure we could put together a great party with you.
