  • December 1-31, 2022 BEST FOR: Anybody and everybody WHAT: A community-wide running program to keep you moving through the time of the year when daylight is in short supply and chaos rings like jingle bells. LENGTH: The 31 days of December Welcome to Joy to the Run, an Another Mother Runner Holiday Challenge! We are so excited to share this (joyful yet hectic) month of December with you. As you likely know from personal experience, the busier your schedule and longer your to-do list gets, the more important it is for you to take time to move. As you also likely know from personal experience, exercise gives us a clear path to a more balanced mind, a more patient perspective, and a chance to feel powerful and present. Which is why we're making this holiday running challenge free to everybody. Momentum, motivation, and inspiration thrive in camaraderie, and we want to make this joyous, sweaty December circle as wide and inclusive as possible. In the spirit of giving, we are including the opportunity to pay it forward with a donation to Brave Like Gabe, an organization that recognizes how powerful forward movement and community can be when confronted with a cancer diagnosis. Founded by pro runner Gabe Grunewald, who died of a rare cancer in 2019, Brave Like Gabe's mission is to support rare cancer research and empower all cancer survivors through physical activity. (We were honored to feature Gabe on a live podcast at the 2018 Twin Cities Marathon; her hope, joy, and kindness—three of the values of her organization—were on full display.) Oh, and we also have a few adorable pieces of Joy to the Run merchandise; consider them gifts to yourself for celebrating the commitment you've made to movement in December. (Note: We have limited inventory, so if you do not see your size in the drop-down menu, we are sold out.)

  • You’ve been faithfully following the training program: putting in the miles and doing the strength circuits. You’re going to bed before 10 pm, you’ve eliminated your nightly glass of wine, and you’re even foam rolling as you watch Queer Eye on Netflix. You’re doing everything right, so why do you lose steam during your long runs—and sometimes even your shorter ones? Chances are, it’s your nutrition. You’re not properly fueling before and after, and most importantly, during your runs. And when you don’t eat for running performance and endurance, your GI tract might revolt. Your legs might feel heavy. You might get a killer headache or you might feel nauseous. Or the running-sucks-or-maybe-I-just-suck track might play on repeat in your head. Or you simply might incrementally peter out, like a car whose gas gauge inches towards E.
