I was so proud to once again host “Murtaugh’s Motivation Station’ at the Ridgefield 2016 Run Like A Mother event. Even though we braved the rain – it was fun to see all the mothers and their kids come out to run and celebrate!
According to the Ridgefield Daily Voice, 1,130 runners braved the chilly rain to finish the 5K race.Maria Lauretani of New York won the race in 19:36, followed by Ridgefield’s Kristen Lecompte and Jenna Mesgian.
Run Like A Mother was founded by Ridgefield resident Megan Searfoss. The event includes events in Texas, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Arizona and Minnesota. The mission of Run Like a Mother is to fuel a woman’s journey toward health and wellness, empower with education and training programs and inspire with communities, events and races. Races are held on Mother’s Day weekend each year as part of the series.
As a sponsor, I look forward to this event all year – let’s just hope that 2017 brings sunnier skies!
