Mother's Day: Another Mother Runner #GIVEAWAY!

Disclaimer: I received one shirt for review and giveaway purposes.  All opinions are my own and I have not been compensated in any other way.

Happy Mother's Day to all you mamas out there!  Whether you are a mom to a two legged baby or a fur baby, we celebrate YOU!  While you are reading this post, I am most likely relaxing after running Revel Mt. Charleston yesterday (race recap coming soon).  I love Saturday races!  You have a whole day after to relax and enjoy your family!


Let's start with the basics.  What is Another Mother Runner?  Another Mother Runner (AMR) was founded by Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea, after the 2010 release of their first book, Run Like a Mother: How to Get Moving and Not Lose Your Family, Job, or Sanity. I have read this book and the best thing about it is that it is written like how me and my girlfriends  talk to each other on a run and covers everything from race-day periods to pregnancy, hills to husbands.  You can buy the OG book here ($12).  They now have 2 more books!


They developed Another Mother Runner to be a place where women runners (and walkers-aiming-to-run) can connect with other mother runners and get support. 

Online, the AMR community includes an engaged Facebook Page, an active Website with free weekly giveaways, free weekly podcast available on iTunes, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. (SBS and Dimity are SUPER busy!)

Like the shirt says, "Don't know how I do it all either."  Any wonder why and how they came up with this slogan?  They also share advice and anecdotes at race expos, like Disney Princess, Tinker Bell, and select Rock ‘n’ Roll marathons. They have hosted Mother Runner parties and that is where I come in!  I met them in 2014 the day before the Carlsbad Half Marathon (my very first Half)!

A couple of girlfriends and I headed to the party and got some great swag!  In fact, that is where I was first introduced to Headsweats and met the wonderful SmushTush - Kat!

You can see Kat at the bottom left of the picture and me super excited about what was happening!  Ever since then I have followed them on social media and entered all their contests and listened to their podcasts.  They have entertained me thru many a Runch!  They are so real and down to earth and I have enjoyed "getting to know them" over the last couple of years.

So, your big question is what am I giving away exactly.  I am letting one of you pick your choice of 3 AMR shirts.  The orange Another Mother tee, the blue Another Mother tee or the gray "Don't Know How I do It All Either" shirt.  Go check out the store because they have TONS of shirts on sale for Mother's Day!

  11. It sounds like a suck-up thing, but you really are an inspirational mother. The shirt nails it. I am constantly in awe of how much you do, and how you seem to fit in more than 24 hours into a day.

  17. My mom inspires me! Her name is Cheryl, but of course I call her Mommy. She walks a 5K distance almost every day, although she was recently in the hospital and hasn't started walking again since getting out. She's my biggest fan and came to see me finish my 2nd half marathon. It means a lot when she's at the finish line for me.
