#219: Mother 10K Runners

10K runners 500x300Fresh off her own 6.2-mile race, Sarah talks 10Ks with co-host Molly Williams. The Portland gals bring in a variety of voices on the topic, talking with four mother runners who have recently crossed a 10K finish line and mixing in Voice Memos from other 10Kers. First up is new mom Sarah Axelrod, whose story highlights the importance of checking a course map pre-race. Her 10K race wasn’t what she’d hoped it would be, so hear what she did for a do-over. Then Erin LeFevre, a mome of two young kids, talks about why 10K is the perfect race distance for her. Erin explains why she doesn’t have a time goal when she races; instead, 10Ks are about finishing with a smile on her face. Next up: Sara Roach, a runner since 2013, describes her transformation from a run/walker on her “dusty treadmill” in her basement to a Boston-qualifying marathoner who loves 10Ks as a way to get her speed on and let her endurance show. This self-proclaimed “grinder” shares tricks she uses to spur herself to go faster in races, as well as training tips. Finally, Tasha Shepard from Georgia tells about how running for weight management has lead her to run in the largest race in the U.S. —the Peachtree Road Race, a July 4th10K tradition in Hot-lanta—three times. Sarah and Molly suspect you’ll sign up for a 6.2-mile race once you’re done listening to all this 10K talk!
