Attention Running Moms: Blue Nose Marathon May 19, 2013

Almost 10 years ago, pre-kids, my husband and I were runners. Well, I was a newbie runner with the Running Room and he was training for his first marathon to celebrate his 30th birthday. He signed up for the Blue Nose Marathon in Halifax - what an experience!

The race heads all over the Halifax region and tours many neighbourhoods. The year we were in town, 2004, it rained the entire time. Cold spring rain. Not the best way to see to Halifax but certainly a real way.

Now it's the 10th Annual Scotiabank Blue Nose Marathon, the biggest annual race weekend in Atlantic Canada and they are both calling for runners and looking for volunteers to help.

momstown loves to connect moms - that's what we do! Our Fitness and Adventure program pillar focuses not just on  child fitness but also mama's. In many chapters we host a Mama Run program to encourage moms to start running, or even Mamas in Motion to help train for races and keep the group fit. This year many chapters like momstown Oakville  have launched Fitness Challenges which find our members in active spots each week like Spinning classes, Zumba dancing or Run clubs.

Our owners of momstown Edmonton have signed up for the BMO Vancouver Marathon on May 5th. They are training for the half-marathon  with 12 other momstown moms to raise money for a the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. They've been running in extreme temperatures all winter to be ready for the spring. Much like those training for the Blue Nose Marathon this spring.

Feeling inspired?
