“WHILE I LOVE HAVING A FRESH, NEW TRAINING PLAN, THE CAMARADERIE, ADVICE, AND ENCOURAGEMENT FROM THE OTHER #MOTHERRUNNERS IS INVALUABLE.

WITHOUT THE SUPPORT AND ACCOUNTABILITY HERE, I TOTALLY WOULD’VE LOUNGED AROUND AFTER MY SON’S BIRTHDAY PARTY LAST NIGHT. INSTEAD, I GOT MY RUN DONE.”
—#MOTHERRUNNER LAUREN HARAMIC

Meet YOur Coach: AMANDA LOUDIN

Ellicott City, MD; Mother of two (ages 15 + 12)
Coaching since: 2010.
Coaching certifications: RRCA
After a workout, I: Load up with a big breakfast. I don’t eat before I workout so I love a good refueling meal!
Two athletic accomplishments:
1. Completed Ironman Lake Placid (in 1999, the very first IM Lake Placid).
2. Qualified for Boston at my first marathon in 1998.
Two maternal accomplishments:
1. I have raised readers, which warms my book-loving heart.
2. I think/hope I have raised two kind kids who can care/think about others.
Don’t ask me to: Listen to my daughter’s choice in music!
Coaching style in one word: Interactive. (Big believer that a coach is only as good as the feedback she gets from athletes.)

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.)

Totally. Each distance from the 10K to the marathon has different levels of plans so you can pick the one that’s right for you. In the preview of the various plans, we lay out the biggest week of training, mileage-wise, and the longest runs, distance-wise, as well as the variety of workouts in the plan.

Depending on the program, your plan will have between three and six runs a week; a cross-training session; and three super short (but very effective) strength circuits. You don’t need any extra equipment for the strength circuits; they are all done solely with body weight. Every program has one mandatory rest day weekly to let your training sink in–and allow for an extra-long grocery store run.

We’d encourage you to start with the 5K Success Program, but if you have bigger ambitions, the 10K Run/Walk may also work, provided you can meet the physical prereqs.

Right now, we only have plans for the half-marathon, and full marathon but we’re happy to see if we can tweak an existing plan to help you meet your goal. Email us at at tlamclub [at] gmail [dot] com, and we can figure it out.

No. The fee covers two training plans (Race Plan + a Holding Plan, which you can do while you wait for your wave to start) and all the support you need the duration of your training. That support includes an active Facebook page and Strava club, at least five exclusive podcasts, a Training Peaks Account, a stocked swag package (over $25!), and regular office hours where we can help you over speed bumps.

All these tools will help you have an phenomenal training cycle and race, both physically and mentally. You will have camaraderie, commiseration, and community on a daily basis (and sometimes hourly, if that’s your thing.)

At the end, you will participate in the organized race of your choice; you can also choose to run a race on your own, if that works better for you.

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 adapting to a new system like heart rate-based training. 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 at tlamclub [at] gmail [dot] com. We’ll work with you to get you a credit for an upcoming program.
