Why Many Happy Miles?

On our first book tour for Run Like a Mother, we—Dimity + Sarah of Another Mother Runner—struggled with what to write when we signed a book. Just our names felt too impersonal, as did the reader’s name plus our names. Good luck sounded like it left too much up to chance, while keep at it felt too pushy. Aim high or reach your goals? Too much like a motivational poster you’d find in a cubicle.

Standing behind an expo table one day as I—Dimity— cracked another spine of a book to sign, I recalled a conversation with a #motherrunner, who had just finished her first half-marathon on a hilly, challenging course.

I asked her if she would train for another. Yes, she answered, “Running just makes me happy.”

By happy, of course, she didn’t mean an ear-to-ear grin on her face during—and after—her miles. She meant her whole self was more balanced, patient, strong, motivated, confident, and forgiving (both with herself and with others) after she laced up and headed out.

We signed her book many happy miles, and that phrase is likely the second most common one around Another Mother Runner. (Bad*ss mother runner is definitely in the lead.) We still sign our books with it; we use it to sign off on our weekly podcast; and we continually use it to focus our perspective, both professionally and personally.

We started the Many Happy Miles party in 2019 and we had a lot of fun planking, foam rolling, sitting (wall sitting, that is), setting our race and life goals, Marie-Kondo'ing 15 minutes at a time, and of course, adding many happy miles week after week.

In 2020, we have lots of new things in store, including an app where all of the workouts, challenges, on-demand strength videos, and other surprises will be easily accessible for busy #motherrunners. Guest coaches will take over a few months during the year, providing new perspective and guidance to runners of all different abilities.

All of the elements in the Many Happy Miles program lead up to our mantra around the halls of AMR: Helping you feel balanced, patient, strong, motivated, confident, and more forgiving in 2020.

Dimity & Sarah


Brand new in 2020: the Many Happy Miles app! You'll find all of the workouts, challenges, on-demand strength videos, community support, and other surprises in one handy place. 

Everyone that signs up for Many Happy Miles in 2020 will get this shiny, 20-ounce BPA-free tumbler. Coffee in the morning, Nuun all day, and tea-or wine-at night. (We won't judge!)

12 months of engaging workouts to keep you motivated between races—or all year long! Includes running, cross-training, strength circuits, + running-specific prehab (injuries, be gone!). Suitable for all levels of runners from beginners to Boston qualifiers.

In 2019, our members used their discounts on Handful Bras, Skirt Sports, Topo Athletic Shoes, TLAM challenges, AMR merch, and Altra Shoes to name a few. Whether you've got a marathon or a wardrobe makeover on your mind, you'll save significantly with your membership.

Also new for 2020, we're bringing in a variety of top-notch guest coaches who will help you improve + learn as a runner. We'll have a taste of heart rate training; triathlon; trail running; and a few other helpful training integrations like Pilates and heavy weights.

In 2019, our experts included Olympians Deena Kastor and Carrie Tollefson; Stanford Health Psychologist Kelly McGonigal; and Ellie Kempton, holistic nutritionist—and we're excited to build on that all-star line-up in 2020!

Early access to Another Mother Runner Retreat registration + other events. Plus, we've got a few more tricks in our key-sized, zippered pocket that we'll reveal over the year!

 We mix up the monthly challenges from wall-sits and foam rolling to lifestyle-focused ones such as organizing your house, 15 minutes at a time. Many Happy Miles is so much more than running!

We know how much y'all dig counting up your miles at the end of each year so we thought we would make it a fun group project that you can add to your family's refrigerator!

We are so dang excited about these hip crew socks exclusively for returning members that we could hardly keep it a secret during development. They are cute, trendy, and will keep those blisters at bay during your long runs.


Why did you create Many Happy Miles?

Can we answer a question with a question? Yes? Okay, thanks.

Does this sound familiar?
Get really excited about a race; sign up for the race; train consistently for months; cross the finish line; and then, shortly thereafter, wonder one—or more—of the following:
How did I just race ____ miles, and now I can't even rally to walk the dog?
Did I (unwittingly) trade my daily mojo for a race medal?
When was the last time l opened the drawer for my workout clothes, let alone put on a sports bra?
What do I do now?

We've heard screeching-stop, post-race scenarios so many times—and experienced it ourselves—we wanted to create a fun, accessible program that not only fills in the gaps between races, but also helps you improve as a runner.

And if you're someone who prefers not to race, we also thought of you during our Many Happy Miles development. This program will lend structure—and some instruction—to your running, not to mention an army of teammates who will happily help you out the door when you'd rather not go. You'll be introduced to new workouts + ideas that will enhance your lifestyle for 12 straight months.

What kind of runner will thrive in Many Happy Miles?

Everyone. Truly.

(Not kidding.)

If you're just finding your running legs, you're perfect for Many Happy Miles. If you've been classified as a Masters runner for a decade+, you're perfect for Many Happy Miles. Run with a group? You can stamp Many Happy Miles on it. Push a stroller? Yup, you—and the tot—will love Many Happy Miles.

Additionally, you can be a walker; a run/walker; or a runner, and Many Happy Miles will fit seamlessly into your fitness journey.

Why? Many Happy Miles is not about the intensity of the workouts or the total mileage; it’s about the happy mileage: a full year of comprehensive programming that makes you feel more balanced, strong, confident, patient, productive, and forgiving.

You'll enjoy a fresh take on workouts each month; steep discounts on our favorite gear; expert guests who will help empower you with tips + ideas for your running + life; guest coaches to push and challenge you when you need it and the support of + connection with like-minded women who will inspire you to continue for many happy miles.

Is this a training program for a specific race distance (5k, 10k, half-marathon, marathon)?

No. The workout focus in Many Happy Miles is regular sessions (running, cross-training, strength circuits) that keep you motivated and moving, no matter what is on your life/work/family/house/garden/grocery to-do list.

The longest weekend run is 90 minutes, and all the workouts can be adapted for walking or for a run/walk pattern.

Okay, but can I race using the Many Happy Miles workouts?

Certainly, you can run a 5k or 10k if you’ve been consistently following the Many Happy Miles workouts for two or three months, but specific race-focused workouts are not included in the monthly plans.

If you're running a half-marathon or marathon and/or want to really root down in a training cycle for a specific goal, the Train Like a Mother Club, with its range of training plans created by expert, accessible coaches, is the best place for you to do that.

The good news? In Many Happy Miles, you'll receive (occasional? –don’t want to imply that it’s ongoing or regular) discounts to Train Like a Mother Club programs, and the Many Happy Miles workouts will be waiting for you—and your potentially waning motivation—after you cross the finish line.

I plan to run two marathons this year and need to be on race-specific training plans: Why should I join Many Happy Miles?

There is so much more to Many Happy Miles beyond the monthly workouts.

  • Regular expert guest speakers—everybody from running-focused physical therapists to a holistic nutritionist to a pelvic floor physical therapist—will drop in and enhance your running + life.
  • You’ll get steep discounts on our favorite gear, as well as on merchandise in the Mother Runner Store and programs in the Train Like a Mother Club.
  • The monthly challenges will enhance your marathon training (there’s no such thing as too many planks, right?).
  • You’ll have early access to Another Mother Runner Retreats and other events.
  • Did we mention the welcome gift? A gorgeous tumbler to keep your coffee hot, your water cold, and your rosé just right. 
  • Finally, the monthly workouts will be a perfect place to land when you’re out of marathon training; you won’t lose your running groove, as often happens after a long race.

How much guidance will there be from coaches?

In Many Happy Miles, Dimity + the MHM team are ready to rah-rah-rah for you + help you integrate all the MHM programming into your running + life, but we are not able to tweak the monthly schedules, answer race-specific questions, or otherwise deviate from the MHM focus.

As such, we will NOT individually amend any monthly workouts to accommodate races, vacations, or injuries. (That said, you will have access to an army of smart #motherrunners, and you are welcome to ask the community for advice.)

How does membership work?

Many Happy Miles is an annual membership, and you can join at any time. You can purchase it all at once ($170); make two payments ($90/each); or opt for four payments ($47.50/each).

Membership works like this: the month in which you purchase your membership is your first month of twelve. So if you join on January 10, 2020, you'll have access to all twelve months of 2020 Many Happy Miles. If you join on March 20, you'll have access to materials from March 2020 through February 2021.

Exception: If you join on the 26th of any month except February (the 24th of February), your membership will start on the 1st of the following month.

You will be notified by email at the beginning of the month before your 12-month Many Happy Miles membership is auto-renewed so you can cancel if you’d like.

Can I give Many Happy Miles as a gift?

Absolutely! Head here to purchase.

I subscribed in 2019. Will I automatically be renewed?

Yes. That said, you will receive an email at the beginning of the 12th month of your membership that will explain your options for the upcoming year (autorenewal or cancellation).

I need to change my billing or shipping address. How do I do that?

Head to "MHM Account" and then "My Addresses." Click "EDIT" on either billing or shipping—or both—and update your address. When you are done, be sure to click the box in the bottom left corner that reads "Update the Billing Address used for all of my active subscriptions" and then click "Save."

How do I prevent my subscription from auto-renewing?

You will receive an email from us at the beginning of the 12th month of your membership; in it, there are details on how to cancel your membership for the following year.

Please note: do not cancel your membership before your last month begins, or you will lose access to that month's materials. 

Will I still have access to all of the content and materials I paid for in 2019 even if I cancel for 2020?

Yes. The 2019 materials will be on the Many Happy Miles website, under your account. That said, if your credit card fails or expires during your membership and you do not update it, we will cancel your account and you will lose access to the Many Happy Miles materials and community.

Can I join for less than 12 months?

No: Your membership to Many Happy Miles is a full 12 months; the programming is a complementary package that is best experienced on an annual schedule.

What is the refund/cancellation policy?

We are unable to offer any refunds on Many Happy Miles annual membership. Trust us, once you experience a month in MHM, you won’t want to leave!

You will be notified by email two weeks before your 12-month Many Happy Miles membership is renewed; at that point, you will have the opportunity to adjust your payment plan or cancel your membership.

What happens if I get injured?

With plenty of physical-therapy exercises and strength training, we're going to do our best to see that injury doesn't happen.

But if it does, being a member of Many Happy Miles will greatly benefit your recovery.
Each month of workouts will have options for translating the running workouts into non-impact workouts. (So if you can elliptical, bike, or walk, you're good to go!)
The expert guests will focus on a variety of topics, including physical therapy, gratitude, and nutrition , which are keys to getting stronger, both mentally and physically.
Being connected to an empathetic community is incredibly helpful to fill the holes that come with being sidelined.

How do I access the materials?

Upon registering, you will get a username and password; upon entering them to the private Many Happy Miles site, you will have access to the site.

On the site are: the PDFs of the monthly workouts + challenges; exclusive podcasts + videos; and a page full of discounts. New in 2020 is our very own Many Happy Miles app, where you can also access all every aspect of the program to successfully implement the MHM program into your life!

I’ve seen Many Happy Miles socks on social media. Do I get a pair of those?

Those sweet striped socks are for people who joined Many Happy Miles in 2019 and are returning for 2020. (If 2020 is your first year, don’t worry: We’ll have a great returning gift next year as well!)

Do you have more details?
