BAMRbassador applications are now open for the class of 2019!
Our BAMRbassadors had so much fun spreading the love of Another Mother Runner in 2018, we've decided to expand the group in 2019!
Our tribe of two (Dimity + Sarah) has grown by leaps and bounds during the past eight years. We’ve logged a lot of miles; we've shared peeing-and-pooping stories; we've Retreated; and we have pushed ourselves to do more than we ever thought possible, proving that we (all of us!) are even more bada$$ than we thought before. And we know there are so many more BAMRs out there who would bask in all the warm and fuzzy feels we’ve gotten from this Tribe.
Which is why we are asking you, our loyal BAMRs, to submit an application to become a BAMRbassador for Another Mother Runner.
We could go on and on about why you should do this, but let's turn it over to the BAMRbassadors to tell you about their experience in '18:
"Being selected as one of the 2018 BAMRbassadors has been one of the best experiences, and something I have the honor of being a part of, this year. Getting to experience things I wouldn't normally get to do, like work race expos, be a social media influencer, or try apparel from our partners, among other things, has been such a privilege. I discovered this tribe years ago, right when I needed it, and I have been a part of it ever since. If I was able to share this incredible brand/business/organization with someone else who may have also needed it, even if it was just one person, that would be the greatest outcome of them all."
- BAMRbassador Meaghan Clark; Lincoln, RI
"I applied to be a BAMRbassador wanting to give back to this amazing community but as I reflect on this past year, I am so grateful for what it has given me. Opportunities to question and stretch my view of myself, not just as a runner, but as a woman. Challenges. Incredible, once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. I'll never be able to thank AMR for the amazing chance I was given to run my first Ragnar with a phenomenal group of BAMR's, a bucket-list item for me. I not only gained new friendships and forged close bonds with women I'd never before met in person (as one can only after a weekend of traveling, running, and sleeping in a van)--but the opportunity to accomplish something I still think about, relive in my thoughts and beam about. This adventure, in a nutshell, is what this experience has been about for me--a reminder that I can do hard things, especially with the support and encouragement of a tribe of unrelenting, fierce, compassionate mother runners. Being chosen to serve as a BAMRbassador has been a privilege and has shown me the very best of what we as women can achieve and be when we lean into each other's light."
- BAMRbassador Lynne Garcia; Los Angeles, CA
"Being a BAMRbassador has been such an honor to represent and promote a community I love and am forever grateful for."
- BAMRbassador Julie Patno; Salt Lake City, UT
"Being a BAMRbassdor for another mother Runner has been a blessing. The support I have gotten from this group of ladies has been invaluable. When I was struggling about missing a PR from a marathon, they lifted me with kind words, motivational quotes, and virtual hugs. I will never forget that."
- BAMRbassador Brandi Dockett; Mount Royal, NJ
"I love having the opportunity to (officially!) represent the running community that has changed my life. I’ve gotten to know other BAMRs and AMR on a deeper level and have had fun getting to test out products. Not to mention (and I clearly don’t expect this bit to be published), how many titles include 'ASS' in the acronym?!"
- BAMRbassador Pam Harris; Decatur, GA
"My experience as a BAMRBassador has helped me connect with so many Mother runners both locally as well as virtually. Being still fairly new to the area, being a BAMRBassador forced me to expand my network in ways I never thought would happen. Many of the women in the attached picture I’ve met in the past year since becoming a BAMRBassador. So much fun!"
- BAMRbassador Tracey Swearingen; Omaha, NE
"Being a BAMRbassador has allowed me to become even more immersed in this badass tribe of women. I feel like an AMR insider now - and, as a long time super fan, this is such a thrill! I’ve also got to test out some amazing products along the way. I’m so proud to represent a brand I live and love."
- BAMRbassador Jodi Snowden; Kingston, ON

We expect these activities will take between 3-5 hours per month of your time.
