WHY SHOULD YOU TRAIN LIKE A MOTHER?
Sure, you can grab a random, free plan on the Internet, but here’s what you’ll be missing:
★ Accessible, hands-on coaching to get you over any training speed bumps; no question is too basic or TMI.
★ An engaged community of like-minded teammates that provide miles of inspiration and motivation—and the occasional gentle push out the door.
★ Weekly newsletters + Train Like a Mother podcasts to enhance your training knowledge—and performance on race day.
★ Swag ($25+ value!) to use during your training, including Balega running socks, two tubes of Nuun Hydration tablets, GU Energy Gel, GU Chews, and WIN Sport Detergent.
