Inspiration From Run Like A Mother

One of the reasons I love being a lead sponsor of Run Like A Mother each year is its creator, Megan Searfoss. An inspirational leader, she constantly finds a way to make lemonade out of lemons, and is tireless in her support of women and their importance to their families and communities. In these strange days, Megan has once again placed community above all and created a new way to enjoy this year’s Run Like A Mother event. She envisions a Virtual Race – keeping all mothers together on their special day.

In her note to her running community, she stresses the importance of slowing down and reconnecting with family and getting to move outside. The virtual Run Like A Mother race will replace the physical race and is only $19.99, which includes a Run Like a Mother Tech Tee, Eco-Friendly Tote and 2020 Signature Finisher’s Medal.

To register for the Virtual Race go to Run Like A Mother. If you are already registered, you will be receiving information from Megan in the coming week on your registration options, including how to convert to the Virtual Race.

Please join me this Mother’s Day as we celebrate women. Never has there been a better time to show our strength of mind, body and soul.

Ridgefield’s Very Wet Run Like A Mother 2016

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!

Run Like a Mother in Ridgefield!

Spring is here and I can’t think of a better way to get outside than to Run Like A Mother in Ridgefield! Community involvement has always been high on my list of priorities and I love giving back to the great town of Ridgefield after all it’s given me. Now in its sixth year, I’m proud to say that I’m still thrilled to be a lead sponsor of this wonderful event. As a mother, you give selflessly and tirelessly all year long. Run Like A Mother offers you the opportunity to participate in a day focused on you, allowing the other people in your life to give you the praise and encouragement you deserve.

Available at package pick-up, or at my tent during the race, Murtaugh’s Motivation Station and Run Like A Mother are a part of my Mother’s Day tradition.
