9780740785351: Run Like a Mother: How to Get Moving--and Not Lose Your Family, Job, or Sanity

The Girlfriends Guide to Running.

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 multi-hyphenates 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.

Review:

Their funny, frank stories and tips for beginners and runners alike ... Will convince you that lacing up is one of the best things a mother can do for herself and her family in her daily race. --Redbook

This book is entertaining and fun to read, full of helpful information (which is also good for non-mothers), and inspirational. The ultimate trifecta in a running book. --Fit Sugar

The joys of motherhood and logging early-morning miles can coexist, as McDowell and Shea prove in their new book. -----Fitness

So for anyone who loves that moment of calm away from the harried life we live, and chooses to find it out on the trails or roads or wherever your two legs lead you, check out this book. -----Self Magazine

While anyone with a passion can relate to the book, it's especially validating and inspiring for people who have fallen in love with the slap-slap-slap of their feet hitting the ground, the time alone with their thoughts, everything that happens during a run. -----Real Simple
