Moms In Training- New Program from Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

I’m sure most of us have either run or at least heard of Team In Training, which helps raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. (Go Team!)  I’m excited to share that they have a new program called Moms In Training!

Moms In Training is a nine-week workout program that helps moms prepare for a 5K race while meeting other moms in their community and raising funds for LLS’s mission to fight cancer.  Moms In Training is new to the entire organization and has only been launched in a few cities across the country including the San Francisco Greater Bay Area.

“Moms In Training was created with the goal of bringing moms together to get in shape, fight cancer and raise funds for LLS.  Compared to the traditional Team In Training program, Moms In Training is less rigorous and includes weekly workouts on Saturday mornings and social events throughout the season with other moms in the area.”

The San Francisco Greater Bay Area season starts on April 12, 2014 and culminates with the See Jane Run 5K Walk and Stroller Stride in Alameda on June 22, 2014 (event participation optional).  The workouts last approximately 60-75 minutes and consist of running, walking, cross-training and stretching and moms are able to train with their babies as long as they remain in the stroller.  The fundraising commitment is just $500 – the average mom raises $1,500!  Feel free to watch this Moms In Training video to learn what has inspired moms across the country to join: http://vimeo.com/72658832.

    I’ve never trained with Team in Training, but you can’t help but notice them at races. I’ve always thought it would be nice to have such a big support system…

      I totally agree. The support system is the most amazing at any race, in my opinion. The coaches along the way and cheering squads are so inspirational.
