Desiree C  Desiree
Mother of: 2
I starting running: in March 2010. Although it took a year to muster the courage to run my first race (a neighborhood 5K), I have since run several 5Ks, and 5m race, as well as the Philly RnR Half Marathon in 2012 with my daughter. I have found that running, like children, reveals us for who we are.

 

Danielle
Mother of: 1
Running has: changed my life by teaching me I Can instead of I Can’t. It has helped me find my true self and has connected me with the best group of friends in the world!


Denise
Mother of: 2
I always wanted: to be a runner. I never thought I had a runner’s body, but now I know that every ‘body’ has a runner’s body, if they choose it to be. I’m not fast, but I love it for the simple reasons that it gets me out of my comfort zone, softens most of my edges and intensifies others.

Diane
Mother of: 1
I race: to be a part of a team, to raise awareness for a cause. To be with friends and show support for different accomplishments. To run in someone’s memory. To run for time. To run to support a friends first race. To try a new distance for myself.

Debbie
Mother of: 1.5
My last run was: two weeks ago, unfortunately. I’m pregnant with my second and battling morning sickness.  It sucks out all of my energy.  But I hope to start running again soon; I want to run throughout my pregnancy.

Drea
Mother of: 2
On the day my daughter was born: I pushed my son seven miles. Now I love hills and trails. Up is a nice way to go.*
*She’s already quite high: she won the inaugural 2009 Santa Barbara International Marathon (2:52:23).

Dana
Mother of: 2
I am: a 40-year-old recovering couch potato who just got off her duff in January. If I can stay off the injured list I hope to finish the Rocket City Marathon in December of this year.  I started out walking, then moved up to running 30 seconds/walking a couple of minutes for half an hour.  I’m up to five miles, walking only 6 out of 61 minutes!

Dorothy
Mother of: 3
I ran like a mother: 6 months and 2 days after having my second child. At the 2008 Marine Corps Marathon, I not only qualified for Boston but took my marathon PR from a 3:59 to a 3:36:41. I’m a believer in the faster after kids notion! It’s easier to push myself and not skip runs knowing that my opportunities to get out there are limited.

Danielle
Mother of: 2 girls
I started running: in July 2010 to lose weight and get healthier. I’ve made great progress on both. Only 3 months after I started running, I completed my first half marathon in Portland on 10-10-10. I think I’m in love!

Darcy
Mother of: 2 “awesome girls”
I am lucky because: I have a speedy metabolism and good genes, but before running, I felt very weak and emotionally tired. I run to feel strong and empowered.

Danielle
Mother of: boy/girl twins
I started with the Couch to 5K program: and 6 months later earned my 1st running medal at the 30th Broad Street Run in PhillyRunning gave me my confidence back after four long years of the infertility rollercoaster wiped my self-esteem to below zero.

Deborah
Mother of: 3
My kids are: all boys. Therefore, I always run in pink.

Donna
Mother of: 1
I have been running: off and on 22 years, mostly on. I love to inspire other people to run.

Deana
Mother of: 2
I run: because it brings me closer to the Lord. I can praise and worship without interruption.
