The Virtual Joggermom Marathon…it’s not just a 26.2 mile race, it is an adventure!  How fun will this be to run and compete with other Moms all over the world virtually?!? We will be signing up Moms from February thru April 30th to participate in our Virtual Joggermom Marathon. On May 1st the race begins. Participating Moms can start recording mileage until they complete a total of 26.2 miles by May 31st.

Why a Virtual Marathon you may ask? Two reasons: The first reason is we are all Moms and finding time on the weekend to run in a race does not always happen. This way you can run with or without your children at your own leisure. It is a race but, it is not about who finished first or fastest. All who complete the race are winners. The second reason I wanted to put on the Joggermom Marathon is to give back to other Moms. May is the month all of us Mothers are recognized, why not do something for ourselves this month with a promise to become more fit?
