Race Like a Mother: Kansas City


Race Like a Mother: Kansas City



Ready to have the most fulfilling 10K, half-marathon, or marathon of your life?

Ready to be supported by an expert team, including a coach, sports psychologist and running-focused nutritionist?

Ready to share some miles—and finish-line tales—with local running friends, both new and old?

Then you’re ready to Race Like a Mother on Saturday, October 19, at the Kansas City 10K, Half-Marathon, or Marathon.

Race Like a Mother Kansas City

Race Like a Mother incorporates all the accessible, comprehensive elements of the Train Like a Mother programs you already love and trust and adds three new dimensions to them:

1. A Local Element: In addition to regular weekend group runs led by local #motherrunners, you’ll attend two in-person clinics with Train Like a Mother Head Coach Dimity McDowell.

Also, $20 of every Race Like a Mother registration will be donated to Women’s Intersport Network for Kansas City (WIN for KC), a local non-profit that empowers the lives of girls and women through advocating and promoting the lifetime value of sports and fitness, while providing opportunities for participation and leadership development.

2. Nutrition Advice: You’ll (virtually) take part in two interactive sessions with Stephanie Howe, Ph.D. in sports nutrition and elite ultra runner; she’ll devote one to eating on the run, and the other to eating for the run.

3. Mental Fitness Focus: Twice during the training cycle, you’ll (virtually) hang out with Dr. Justin Ross, sports psychologist, who will help you set appropriate race goals—and then help you thrive during training and nail race day.

How does it work? Glad you asked.

Race Like a Mother Kansas City

On Saturday, June 15th, from 8:30 am to noon at Run 816, Dimity + Members of Team AMR will lead a half-day training session that includes a short run, strength class, foam rolling instruction, light brunch and plenty of our favorite swag for you.

We’ll also distribute a schedule of group training runs and locations so you can plan accordingly.

We’ll share a code for 15% off registration for the Kansas City 10K, half-marathon and marathon on October 19, 2019.

As you log your miles, bask in support and inspiration: you’ll have access to an interactive Facebook group, complete with weekly Q + A sessions with your coach, and weekly newsletters. If you hit a speed bump with injury or inspiration, we’ll help you with next best steps.

Attend group runs as you can; all are encouraged to attend, regardless of your race distance, specific workout that day, or pace.

You’ll build your mental fitness with two interactive webinars with sports psychologist Dr. Justin Ross.

You’ll focus on best nutrition practices, both on and off the road, during two interactive webinars with Stephanie Howe, Ph.D. in sports nutrition and elite ultra runner.

Ok, you don’t have to sleep in it; we just wanted to call out the special Run KC hat, designed for this program and included with your Race Like a Mother registration.

Dimity + the AMR Team will be back in KC for race day! We’ll gather the evening of Friday, October 18 to chat about race day, laugh more than we should, and make sure you’re ready to rumble.

Nope. You can live anywhere and still Race Like a Mother in Kansas City. The in-person elements definitely add a level of connection and community, so if you’re kinda nearby, we’d love for you to join us for the Kick Off and Celebration.

What if I’m local but can’t make the June 15 or October 18 dates?
We’d still love to have you join the program! If you can’t make June 15, we’ll be sure to deliver your special package, filled with your Run Kansas City hat and training gear we love, and also get you all the additional training information we distribute. Ditto for October 18: We’ll miss your presence, but we’ll be sure you don’t miss anything important!

What if I’m busy during one of the nutrition or sports psychology webinars? 
We’ll put out a call for questions in advance, so we’ve got you covered then. Then we’ll record the sessions and share them, both in video and podcast format, so you can watch and/or listen at your leisure.

How much does it cost?
The comprehensive Race Like a Mother package is $199. Because of the length of the Running by Heart Rate: Half-Marathon and Marathon programs (20 and 24 weeks, respectively), there is an additional $25 charge.

Is race entry included with Race Like a Mother registration?
No, but we provide a 15% discount code so you can save on your 10K, half-marathon or marathon entry.

What’s in the bundle of “our favorite training gear?”
Think strength training aids, our favorite socks, Nuun tablets, GU products, and a few other must-haves from the AMR vault.

What if I realize this isn’t the right training program for me? 
We definitely want this to work into your life and your running lifestyle. You can email us within 2 weeks of starting the program and we will set you up with another program or a credit for an upcoming program. We will not be able to issue a straight-up refund.

What if I get injured or really sick?
With a smart training plan, doable strength training, and advice on foam rolling and other self-care, we’re going to do our best to keep you injury-free. That said, if you have an injury or illness that totally slays your training, let us know. We’ll work with you to get you a credit for an upcoming program.

Other questions? Happy to help: just email us.
