Almost two years ago, early on in my second pregnancy, I started a running group to help non-runners become runners and train for a 5K. I've gushed about the group here and there and, honestly, it was a terrific experience. In celebration of their accomplishment, I made up some bracelets for them (and the other rocking mothers who helped with the group).
The bracelets said, "Strong Running Mama" on them because that's what those women had become.
A year later, I started a little Facebook group called Strong Running Mamas and the group has grown from the original dozen or so to almost 50!
These women rock! We support each other, run together, motivation one another -- it is awesome. I love it.
So, I had this idea. You know how people say that if you put something "out there" to the universe, it will happen?
Well, I asked each of the Strong Running Mamas to give me their numero uno goal for 2012 and they did. My idea? I'm going to put their goals "out there" and ask you all to support them as they work to achieve them. I figure, I put their goals "out there" for them, you guys wish them some luck, the universe responds and viola! the Strong Running Mamas accomplish their mighty awesome goals in 2012!
Should work, right?
So . . . the goals. Now, not all the Strong Running Mamas gave me their goals, but a bunch did. Please, friends, read these goals and help me give them some support!

Awesome running goals, huh?
Leave a comment, send me an email (I'll pass the love along), or just wish the Strong Running Mamas good luck in your mind (or out loud, if you prefer) -- whatever you want. Just help us get the good vibes going for their 2012 goals!
Throughout the year, I plan to check in and see how everyone is doing and I'll let you guys know how the Strong Running Mamas are progressing.
Thanks, friends. Your support will be greatly appreciated!
And, if you believe in karma, you're sure to get something in return ;-)
Have a great day, all!
