With Mother’s Day just around the corner, you’re probably making plans for a busy weekend of mom-preciation.
It’s no easy task and we, mother runners, don’t make it easier by being your ordinary moms. Oh no. We may like a nice brunch — but we like it best when it’s preceded by a good ol’ sweaty long run. We love pedicures and massages — so long as they’re planned around our race schedule.
But most of all, we love us some Ryan Gosling-esque support of our running endeavors. Don’t think I’m just babbling. Ryan Gosling is a great supporter of Mother Runners and has been known to show up at races on a regular basis: Here are his ten rules for a happy Mother Runner’s Day (all images via the Hey Runner Girl tumblr; a most inspiring page, by the way; check it out.)
1. On Mother Runner’s Day, you shall let the Mother Runner sleep in. Day after day, she wakes up pre-dawn to sneak in a run or workout while the family snoozes. Tell her to forget the alarm this Sunday: there will be time to run later.
What are your plans for Mother Runner’s day?
