I think deep deep deep within me there is an athlete.
I used to play basketball.
I used to play volleyball.
I really was on a swim team..like forever ago.
I played field hockey for one year too. I liked the way cute skirts.
Somewhere between University, chasing boys, choosing a career, falling in love, and having babies, I lost my inner athlete. Sigh.
I think I just stopped making time for me! Between nursing, then carpools, career changes, moves, sleep deprivation, life just got in the way.
Then along comes…
Run Like A Mother.
How To Get Moving-and Not Lose Your Family, Job, or Sanity
by Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea
These two incredibly witty running Mama’s have written a must read book for any woman who runs, who used to run, or like me…..has an inner athlete within that needs a kick in the pants!
This easy to read book covers a huge number of topics! Some of my faves would have to include motivation, clothing, music, marathoners, body image, marriage and potty talk! Yes! Potty talk!
Dripping with great girlfriend style advice it’s a book you really could read twice. Run Like A Mother reminds Women that is is Okay to take time for themselves. It speaks to the invisible bond among runners and the natural high one gets from reaching a fought for goal. It’s pure Mama motivation.
From practical tips to little know tricks, they are all here, wrapped up nice and neat in one cute inspirational package. Whether you are a newbie or a pro, you won’t even be finished the book before you are ready to tie up those laces and get running.
