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.

Hello mothers,

I have an eight-year old baby. Both me and my husband have full-time jobs and we spend very little time together, unfortunately. Our parents do not live in the city, but at the moment my mother is spending time with the baby until I get home. However, I have making her be on the road every day.

Would you leave your kid in the care of an au-pair? Please give me an advice. Thanks!

If you can afford it and you have someone you trust, it's worth it to leave the baby for the relatively short time it would take to go for a run. But another option might be a jogging stroller if you live somewhere you'd be able to use it. If you have any network of friends or peers with babies or small children, you might try child-care swapping, particularly if you know other mother runners. Or, maybe they don't want to run but go to they gym or run errands instead. Depending on where you live you might be able to find a mom-specific or women-specific running group that can facilitate that kind of exchange. Best wishes.

Hello. Thank you for the advice. I found an aupair on the site http://www.findaupair.com/. She is a very kind and professional woman. She stays with my baby when I'm not home and I'm very happy.
