Faqs

Good question. This Club is a branch of Another Mother Runner, started by Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea. Back when our five collective kids were ankle-biters, we ran the Nike Women’s Marathon, wrote about our training for Runner’s World magazine, then turned the whole experience into Run Like a Mother, a chatty, advice-filled book published in 2010. (Here’s an excerpt from Runner’s World.) Train Like a Mother (excerpt) followed in 2012, and Tales from Another Mother Runner (guess what? excerpt) completed the trilogy in 2015.

Along the way, Another Mother Runner has flourished into an amazing community of badass women centered around the idea that the benefits of your miles ricochet through all aspects of your life. When you run, you are a more patient mother, a more loving partner, a more productive worker, and a more positive person altogether. (Note: By run, we mean forward movement. Walking, jogging, and running at any and all speeds count.)

A dynamic duo out of the Chicago area: Jennifer Harrison and Elizabeth Waterstraat, both of whom are excellent athletes as well as coaches. They have been coaching runners + triathletes by heart rate for over 20 years, and know intimately the time-balance dance it takes train properly, raise a family, and still have a life. 
Currently, there are four programs: Introduction (8 weeks; no race at the end); 10K, Level 1 (15 weeks); Half-Marathon, Level 1 (20 weeks); and Marathon, Level 1 (24 weeks). We anticipate having Level 2 programs up within 2 months.
No. The fee is for 15-24 solid, supported, expertly-guided weeks of training; at the end of the training, you do the race of your choice.
Yep—and we’ve heard again and again from past participants, it’s worth it. Staying committed and motivated during the days, weeks, and, yes, of training can be ridiculously hard, especially when you’re trying to fit in three sports in your already busy life. If you can do that—and these programs are all about accountability and inspiration—race day becomes a celebratory victory lap, not a slog full of self-doubt.
With a smart training plan, do-able strength training, and advice on foam rolling and other self-care, we 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.
