Forums: Connect with Another Mother Runner

A huge, sweaty welcome to the another mother runner forums, an exclusive but inclusive—that makes sense, right?—place to connect, chat, ask, analyze, and dream big with other runners. The beauty of this running forum is that, unlike our Facebook page, the status updates don’t float by in less than a day. Here they are, accessible whenever you need the 411.

Anything is game here: questions about training, nutrition, sports bras, leaking on the run, whatever. Two categories we think are pretty cool: a match.com for mother runners, where you can find a BRF (best running friend) and free gear swap, a place to find a home for your newish gear you never use. (The recipient pays only for shipping; thank you in advance for respecting this rule.)

So whatever you've got—IT band problems; stroller questions; a picture-perfect race; shoe issues—lay it on the collective us. If you'd like to nominate a category we forgot, email us at runmother [at] gmail [dot] com. We're all here to push each other across the finish line again and again.

Post Wanted: Active Friends!!!

I am so sick of being the only person in my "circle" who is active! I am desperate to find someone to be active with, to go to races with, to train with!!! Seriously, I have big dreams of destination races and obstacle races and absolutely nobody to do them with. Hubby refuses to even try running aside from on the treadmill and none of my girl friends are interested. My sister used to be active but prefers cycling over running and has fallen off the wagon.

I just want someone to have fun with! Any suggestions on how to find a partner in crime? LOL

I'm so fortunate, my husband runs too and we run all of our races together!  Of course, with a 7year old and 3 year old at home, we don't get to train together as we're already paying babysitting fees for races, but at least we get races!  I have a handful of neighbors I run with.  Anyone in your neighborhood run?  I also go to a "Sunday runday" each Sunday where they mark out a course 8 miles out and back (so up to 16 miles), is there a group like that you can join?  Check your local gym, running shoe store, city running clubs, etc.  Once you get in a running club, you'll find like minded people and make running friends!  I love all my running friends, my nonrunning family/friends I'm sure don't want to hear about splits and paces and races and intervals and etc etc etc!;)  Good luck!

Hey Shaydon80,

Did you say in your profile where you are? I didn't see it. You are farther along than me (I'm still a 5k kinda' girl), so I wouldn't be a good partner...but maybe someone else from Canada will see this and if you say where you are you might find your sole sister that way. 🙂
Btw...I'm in Hamilton, Ontario...if there are any other newbie mother-runners out there who want to slog along with me. 😉

Hi there! I'm looking for a running buddy as well. I'm in Waterloo, Ontario. Anyone from around my neck of the woods?
