The Mother Runner Movement: How Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea helped empower women with running

"For a woman, being a mom and a runner aren't always complementary identities. In fact, when you add a career, partner, and possibly even a social life to the mix, finding time for all of it can be as challenging as tiptoeing across your child's room in the middle of the night without stepping on a Lego."

DAILY BURN: The Power of Running 

"In their third book, McDowell and Bowen Shea gathered a series of inspiring personal essays from 22 “badass mother runners” (themselves, included). Longer pieces are interspersed with funny tidbits from the vibrant mother runner community on topics ranging from what it’s like to run a naked 5K to woe-is-me bathroom tales. But, the book delves deeper into the problems that plague mothers (and everyone), too."
