  • Run Twin Cities hatRun Twin Cities hat
    We love trucker hats almost as much as we love running in the Twin Cities! Especially this style, which is a new one from our pals at BoCo Gear: Called a Running Trucker, it has the hip front panel and bill of a trucker, but the back is more flexible, giving a more comfortable fit. Laser-cut panels provide the breathability needed for running.
  • What's pink and blooming with flowers? This gorgeous visor designed exclusively for AMR by our pals at BoCo Gear. Making it even more marvelous? In big, bold letters, it reads "MANY HAPPY MILES" on the back elastic!
  • Trucker hats are all the rage--and this one is especially, well, badass! This navy blue beauty, by BoCo Gear, reads "badass mother runner" on the front. Wear it running or wear it running errands: It's equally cool! This hat was a bestseller at our fall expos--get it on our site while it lasts!
  • We ♥ this tattoo design so much, but we decided the words were too dang dainty. So we pumped up the volume of the words and the heart to make sure people "hear" what it's saying! The design features the signature phrase of the mother runner tribe: This wicking tank top literally says, "badass mother runner," and it also proclaims it by featuring a heart tattoo that reads "mother." (Badass, right?!)
  • ♥ Run: Okay, so maybe not always, but your miles hold a special place in your heart--just like this design does for us at Another Mother Runner. An artist in North Carolina designed it for us after the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, making the image resonate extra-hard in, well, our hearts. But we decided it was time to brighten up the colors in more traditional heart-y shades of pink.
  • We ♥ Run: Okay, so maybe not always, but your miles hold a special place in your heart. This laid-back hoodie features gorgeous custom-drawn heart with the word "RUN" in it with our mom's shoes logo below it like a signature.
  • Let the world know that you run races—and that you’re in charge. (We love a good pun.) This is one of our top-selling phrases, and now we offer it on a lifestyle tee with a more gracious fit in a wider range of sizes. We are pleased to offer this tee in sizes XS-3XL.
  • This lifestyle tee tells the world to clear a path for you: You are one strong person. This simple-yet-impactful 6-word sentence was written by a member of the AMR Tribe (it won her a treadmill in one of our giveaways!), and it was so good--and so true for so many of us--we had to morph into a tee. We are proud to offer this tee in sizes XS-4XL, to accommodate the range of women.
  • THE LOONY CHALLENGE TRAINING PROGRAM

    Going Loony (covering 19.3 miles in 3 races over 2 days) is a delightful and doable challenge—and the Twin Cities is such a lovely place to do it! This program is designed to get you across three finish lines feeling strong, capable and smiling. Some weeks, you’ll run five days a week, with an optional cross-training day, and other weeks, you’ll be lacing up six days. Other staples of the week: a mandatory rest day, and strength circuits. Most of the runs are at an easy pace so you can build up your cardiovascular base and not court injury. The longer runs go up to 11 miles to get you mentally and physically prepped for the demands of the distance, but a range is given in later weeks to accommodate all levels—and days where your legs haven’t shown up. About halfway through the program, we introduce workouts where you’ll run in the morning and do a brisk walk in the evening. The idea behind these workouts is to run, rest, then go again—much like you will on Saturday, when you hit a 10k, then turn around and line up for a 5k quickly thereafter. RAMP IT UP OPTIONS: We realize the major challenge of stacked races like the Loony Challenge is simply to race three times and rack up some crazy mileage in one weekend, but we also wanted to design a program for runners who might want to push the pace a bit. Every week, there are 1-2 Ramp It Up (RIU workouts) that involve intensity, including hill repeats, intervals, or race pace miles. You can opt to use them, depending on your running history, current fitness and race goals, or opt to follow the other workout offered for that day. (The program has guidelines that help you decide whether you should RIU or not.) THE PREREQS: The ability to comfortably finish a 4-mile run is preferred; your first long run is 5 miles long. That said, because of the Ramp It Up options, this program is suited to a wide range of runners, from 5Kers looking to more than double their mileage to marathoners dialing back on distance and up in intensity. The common thread is a desire to complete a 10-miler injury free with your body feeling strong and your mouth stretched into a grin. BIGGEST WEEK OF TRAINING: 30.5-33.5 miles LONGEST RUN DISTANCES: One 9-to-10 miler; two 10-miler; one 10-to-11 miler. (Ramp It Up options include one 11-to-12 miler.) CROSS TRAINING + STRENGTH TRAINING INCLUDED? Yes. Most weeks have the option to cross-train one to two times, and most weeks also have two strength circuits, as well as a prehab routine Coach Amanda designed. Two of the strength routines include resistance bands. WEEKLY OVERVIEW: five to six runs; one to two cross-training days; two strength circuits; one rest day. There are four workouts where you'll do a run in the morning, a brisk walk in the evening. NUMBER OF RUNS WEEKLY: Four to six. FIRST AND PEAK WEEK: (explained fully in the program; RIU stands for Ramp It Up, the more aggressive workout option)   NOTE: When you pick your race date below, put in the date for the 10 Mile.

  • A 10-mile race is a delightful distance—long enough to cross into double digits, distance-wise, but not one step further—and this is a delightful program to maximize each of your miles. Most of the runs are at an easy pace, making it perfect for a pair or group of women to take on together as you’ll have lots and lots of time on the road (or trail or treadmill) to talk. Working your long runs up to race distance gets you mentally and physically prepped for the demands of the distance, but a range for long runs is given in later weeks to accommodate all levels—and days where your legs haven’t shown up. From the start, this plan integrates start-slow-get-fast pacing strategies so, as you're standing on the starting line, you know you’re ready to run a smart + strong 10-miler. RUN/RACE OPTIONS: Every week, there are 1-2 Ramp It Up (RIU workouts) that involve intensity, including hill repeats, intervals, or race pace miles. You can opt to use them, depending on your running history, current fitness and race goals, or opt to follow the other workout offered for that day. (The program has guidelines that help you decide whether you should RIU or not.) And rest assured: Both options will get you across the finish line feeling strong and capable.
