Publisher's Summary

The girlfriend's guide to running.
In Run Like a Mother, authors Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea offer both inspirational advice and practical strategies to help multitasking women make running part of their busy lives.
McDowell and Shea understand the various external and internal forces in everyday life that can unintentionally keep a wife - mother - working woman from lacing up her shoes and going for a run. Because the authors are multihyphenates themselves, Run Like a Mother is driven by their own running expertise and real-world experience in ensuring that running is part of their lives.
More than a book, Run Like a Mother is essentially a down-to-earth, encouraging conversation with the listener on all things running, with the overall goal of strengthening a woman's inner athlete. Of course, real achievement is a healthy mix of inspiration and perspiration, which is why the authors have grounded Run Like a Mother in a host of practical tips on shoes, training, racing, nutrition, and injuries, all designed to help women balance running with their professional and personal lives.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this book but it wasn't as engaging as I thought it would be. Yes, i plan to listen to the others in this series but I didn't think it was amazing, just good.

Empathy and encouragement for other mom runners

As a newbie runner and mom of 2 elementary kids, I enjoyed the book a great deal. It's great to hear running tips and experiences from other moms who've been there, done that.

It did feel like a very "read" audiobook--lots of flat monotones--but these ladies write in a such an engaging way that their personalities shone through.
