Run Like a Mother's subtitle reads, "how to get moving-- and not lose your job, family, or sanity," and indeed the focus is on how to fit running into the already busy life of a mother. However, the authors cover a little bit of everything in this book, plus a big dose of heartwarming and funny stories. I loved this book in a big way and how it made me feel a bit like part of a big community of mother runners even though running is basically a solo activity.
Train Like a Mother follows up with more specific information on racing different distances and detailed training plans for each distance. There is a "finish it" and an "own it" plan each for 5K, 10K, half-marathon, and marathon distances. In addition, there is more information on topics like nutrition and strength training, and more great stories and anecdotes.
The authors have developed a big social media following (website, Facebook, Twitter, podcast, etc) and I was a bit hesitant to jump on some trendy mother-runner bandwagon. But the authors are so down-to-earth and relatable and likable that it's easy to see why they are so popular.
