Oklahoma Running Mom

Running in Oklahoma adds new meaning to the phrase "Hot Mama."

Monday, November 21, 2011


My friend Laura and I ran the Susan G Komen race together last month. She dominates as a runner and as a mom. I love what she says about why she runs, "...it makes me feel young and amazing." What Laura doesn't mention is that she bikes, plays tennis and works out at the gym. She also finds time to take care of four kids and is always doing nice things for others like hosting baby showers or taking meals to sick friends. For those reasons and many more, the super mom award goes to...LAURA. Thanks for sharing!"I started running 10 years ago after my 4th child joined our family. I needed to lose about 10 pounds and started running to lose weight. Began with just 2 miles and got up to 5 with in a few months. By then I was completely hooked. Not only did I love that running helped me easily lose the weight but I loved the way it made me feel! My youngest daughter is now 10 and I still run 3 or 4 days a week because it makes me feel young and amazing!"

PS Laura will be one of the many awesome moms running the Edmond Turkey Trot on Thursday. I hope to see you there!

I guess not only does it make her feel young, but look young, too! I can't believe her youngest is 10! Have fun at the Turkey Trot.
