Paula
Mother of: 2
My dream running partner: Bill Clinton. The pace would be perfect and the conversation fascinating.

Mother of: 2
I started running regularly after my husband was diagnosed with colon cancer three years ago. I ran my first 5k in May 2010. Back then, I never thought I’d run farther than that, but this year, I ran the Flying Pig Half Marathon. I still can hardly believe that I did that! Some days when I am out for a run and it is getting tough, I tell myself that if my husband can fight cancer then I can endure a little pain, and I remind myself that I am doing it to stay fit and sane.

Paige
Mother of: 2
Growing up: I watched my Mom run road races and discovered a love for running through her. I hope to be the same positive example for my own children.

Priscilla
Mother of: 4
What I discovered through running: I am stronger and more capable than I ever realized. I’m training for my 4th marathon in less than two years.

Priscilla
Mother of: 1 kitty
After my last run: my daughter said, “You’re back early!”  She is only in kindergarten, but she’s already faster than me!

Running is: my Prozac. If I do nothing else all day, at least I can say I went running.
* I am as big a dork as the picture would imply!

Patty
Mother of: 1
My last run was: 21.1 kilometers (13.1 miles, for you American folk) on a beautiful spring morning, wearing new socks.  Do not underestimate the power of fresh new socks.

Pamela
Mother of: 2 “very active” boys
Through a delicious and heady mix of positive peer pressure: I went from zero miles to a half marathon in about half a year.

Paula
Mother of: 2
After walking a half marathon in October 2009:  the enthusiasm of the spectators and participants made me wish I knew how to run. When I finished, I promised myself I would be back to do this half again and I would be running. And in May 2010, I did it.

Pepper
Mother of: 3
When I am trying to clear my head: I can get lost counting my steps. The steps between light poles, between the cracks in the sidewalks, and from one end the block to the other.

Paige
Mother of: 2
I’m back to running: but need some motivation from fellow mommas. I ran my first 5K last summer before I got pregnant, and my goal is to run my first 8K by the end of the summer.

Pam
Mother of: 2
Running: gave me back my confidence. When I finished my first half-marathon, I felt like I could do anything.
