Overview

In Run Like a Mother, authors Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea offer both inspirational advice and practical strategies to help multitasking women make running part of their busy lives.

McDowell and Shea understand the various external and internal forces in everyday life that can unintentionally keep a wife--mother--working woman from lacing up her shoes and going for a run. Because the authors are multihyphenates themselves, Run Like a Mother is driven by their own running expertise and real-world experience in ensuring that running is part of their lives.

More than a book, Run Like a Mother is essentially a down-to-earth, encouraging conversation with the reader on all things running, with the overall goal of strengthening a woman's inner athlete.

Of course, real achievement is a healthy mix of inspiration and perspiration, which is why the authors have grounded Run Like a Mother in a host of practical tips on shoes, training, racing, nutrition, and injuries, all designed to help women balance running with their professional and personal lives.

    I love this book!

    Given to me by my running buddy, another mom. We love this book and have discussed it inside and out during our runs. Funny, informative and inspirational! This book has helped to inspire me to go from mostly coach potato to half marathoning mommy. Thanks Dimity and Sarah!

    Inspiring

    I'm a beginning runner in my early forties. I found the book via a blog and really enjoyed it. Definitely made me want to get out and do more. Good advice and personal stories.

    LOVED THIS BOOK!!

    Absolutely wonderful book about the challenges of balancing a family with running as a hobby. I felt an instant connection to these women as well as all mother's who struggle to raise a family and maintain a piece of themselves. Also packed full of great tips and information from clothing, to shoes, to accessories to training. I bought a copy for all of my running friends. Can't wait for Train Like A Mother to come out!!

    Great Book!

    This book is excellent! Easy to read, relate to, and enjoy. Have read it twice already! Helps me to feel even better about running and being a great Mommy and Wife too. The chapters are written so that you can focus on one topic at a time. Highly motivational and entertaining:)

    Great read. These mothers got down to the nitty gritty of running. Nothing was too embarrassing or too trivial to discuss. I love their sense of humor and their motherly advice. This is now my "go to" book when I need inspiration to get out of the bed and lace up my shoes.
