Just like the petite elves that we are, we're busy at work creating a new website that will be home for all of our training programs—and a home base for you mother runners headed towards a fitter you or a finish line.
We're going to have all the details up shortly after the calendar turns to 2016, but we wanted to give you a head's up as you make your plans, both running-based and financial.
Here's what you need to know:
On January 4, registration will open for the following programs:
10K: Finish It: $52.50; 15 weeks.
10K: Own it: $52.50; 15 weeks.
Half-Marathon: Run/Walk: $52.50; 15 weeks.
Half-Marathon: Run: $52.50; 15 weeks.
Half-Marathon: Race: $52.50; 15 weeks.
Marathon: All Levels: $63.00; 18 weeks.
Training will go off in waves; wave 1 will start training on January 11.*
*One exception: If you've got your eye on a marathon the weekend of April 30/May 1, we're going to have one training group start on December 28. If you'd like this option, please email us at tlamclub [at] gmail [dot] com.
Because of the rolling waves, we can accommodate race dates from April 23/24 to June 18/19 for the 10K and half-marathon and from May 14/15 to June 18/19 for the marathon.
We will also have another keep-moving, five-week Stride Program: Stride into the New Year, which will run from January 11 through February 14 (heart that day!). Cost will be $17.50.
Finally, a 5K group will kick off on February 29, train for 10 weeks, and hit a Mother's Day 5K on May 7 or 8. Registration will open on February 15, and will cost $35.00.
For all the programs mentioned above, the (new, significantly reduced) price includes access to Trainlikeamother.club, where we'll have oodles of resources, a private Facebook page full of #motherrunner teammates, a private Strava club so you can log miles and pile up kudos, and a seriously stocked swag bag, shipped right to your front door.
(A tee and medal are optional, and will be an additional purchase.)
Ok, we need to go edit some training plans and/or eat a candy cane.
