Love the Run You’re With Virtual Race Series

AMR_LOVEbadge-05

During this era of self-quarantine, we can get by without Starbucks and manicures, but the thrill of pursuing—and reaching—a goal like a race is something us runners need

Plus, we are most definitely looking for an excuse to get out of the house on a nearly daily basis! (“Gotta go, kids: I’m training for a 10K.”)

That’s why we are hosting a virtual race series. Four races spread out over four months, with the training and distances building on themselves. A 5K in April; a 10K in May; a 10-miler in June (cheers for a quirky distance!); and a half marathon in July. The training plans are designed by Another Mother Runner co-founder and certified running coach, Dimity McDowell. 

We dubbed it Love the Run You’re With as a play on words. Obviously it’s an homage to the classic Stephen Stills’ song, but it’s also an attitude: Yes, you’ll love some runs—when the temperature is crisp, but not chilly, and the road seems to have the slightest of downhill grade (both ways!)—but there are going to be some hot, humid workouts you just need to sweat through. Just like you love the people you are surrounded by 24/7, but sometimes you just need to get through the day with your patience (semi-)intact. 

LTRYW - Medals

As part of the Love the Run You’re With races, there won’t be any inflatable finish line arch or volunteers handing out orange slices, but we’ll be serving up support in spades on a private Facebook page. And participants (limited to 250) will get monthly motivation via the U.S.P.S.: Each month, participants will get a distance-specific bib and medal plus a special swag item. 

Get this (because you will!): All four medals interlock, making one big, beautiful medal commemorating the entire series!

LTRYW - GOODR (1)

But, wait, there’s more: As a reward for reaching the grand finale race in July, you’ll receive a custom-designed pair of Goodr sunglasses, complete with LOVE THE RUN YOU’RE WITH etched on the inside arm of the shades to serve as a reminder of all you accomplished during these trying times. 

LTRYW - TLAM Plan (2)

How does the training get you there? With innovative runs; smart strength-training sessions; and (virtual, yet tangible) connection between all the Love the Run You’re With racers.

We’ll spend four months together focused on forward motion, accountability, and community, completing workouts that blend running and strength training. And please know that our definition of “running” is inclusive: With three different “tracks,” the training for the Love the Run You’re With race series accommodates all levels of walkers, run/walkers, and runners. 

Upon registration, you will receive a comprehensive PDF of all four months of training, as well as an invitation to our private Facebook page and Strava club.

LTRYW - Rock Your Run.2 (2)

We even have an official soundtrack for this training/racing series, courtesy of our favorite music app, RockMyRun. Sarah (the non-coach AMR co-founder) worked with RockMyRun to develop a 120-minute, get-your-rear-in-gear mix of new songs. As a perk, all participants receive two months free RockStar status on RockMyRun, which translates to ad-free listening of countless mixes including the Love the Run You’re With one. And when you first sign in to the app with our special redemption code, voilá, all seven Another Mother Runner mixes (including this new one) automatically download into your Favorites on the app. 

LTRYW - Swag

Each Love the Run You're With Package comes with a Train Like a Mother swag bagstocked with training essentials, including TWO tubes of Nuun—one Sport and one Rest, TWO GU Energy items — a Gel and Energy Chews, a pair of super comfy Balega socks, a sample-size WIN sports detergent, and an AMR sticker!

LTRYW - Tank Top
It’s the simple truth: Some days you’ll truly love the run you’re doing, whereas other times, you’ll accept it warmly because, well, it’s the only one you’ve got. It’s this yin-yang sentiment we want to sum up in the name of our virtual race series—and this limited-edition tank top. It sports our bold, bright race logo in cheerful, summery shades of yellow, orange, and pink. The soft, 100% cotton top has pretty gathered details on the back and a flattering curved hem. The neck, back, and armholes offer bra-strap-covering modesty, and the swingy style flatters instead of clinging.
NOTE: This is an add-on product - it is not included in the Virtual Race package. It will ship with your first medal and swag in late April.
