Go Ask Mom

Running program for moms launched

Posted August 24, 2010

A new 5K training program just for moms will start this fall.

Raleigh Running Mamas is a branch of Stroller Strides of Raleigh, which meets at Crowder District  Park and Lake Johnson Park several times a week. The program starts Sept. 10 and runs through Nov. 19 with once a week group runs and a weekly training plan. The group will participate in a few fall runs and finish at the Apex Turkey Trot on Nov. 20.

Jen Kedrowski, who runs the program, tells me it's designed for beginners with little to no running experience. Strollers (with kids) are more than welcome, though moms can come on their own as well. The group will meet at 9 a.m. Fridays at Lake Johnson Park in Raleigh for official group runs and strength training

    @ amb8503. Too bad for the working moms like us. There were programs like that here where I live but in the a.m. only. I guess that a working mom would have to coordinate a program for the working moms.

    Hi anb8503,
    Stroller Strides of Raleigh does currently offer a total body workout class on Saturdays, at Crowder District Park. Classes will be 10-11am after Labor Day (currently 9-10am), and dads are welcome to join too at no extra charge. The first class is free--feel free to come out sometime! As for the 5k running program, that is only weekdays this fall; we may do an evening/weekend 5k program in the spring.
    -Jen, Stroller Strides

    What about working moms that are not able to participate in the daytime activities? Are there any programs like this for evenings or weekends?
