What a Mother Runner Wants for Mother’s Day

What a mother runner really wants for Mother's Day.  happyfitmama.com

Mother’s Day is Sunday. I’ve been dropping hints to my kids. I’ve been reminding Ron.

Sure, I’d love a pedicure to pretty up my runner’s feet. A deep tissue massage to coax out the knots in my hard working runner legs. A new GPS watch or other running gear. But I have a massage scheduled for tomorrow. And I already have an overflowing closet of running stuff.

Here’s what this Mother Runner wants for Mother’s Day.

An injury free body that can run, run, and run some more with no worries of how her body will react to the mega mileage.

Time to run at her own pace rather than squeezing it in at zero dark thirty before the slew of kid sports activities takes over on a Saturday morning. Although, I do like this a teeny tiny bit since I get to see killer sunrises.

Enough time in the day to run, lift weights, do core work, go to a yoga class and get a massage and do all that other mother stuff that needs to be done.

A PR. Any distance will do.

Having a nutritious breakfast prepared for me and that is ready the moment I walk in the door after my long run. Of course, it would have the correct ratio of carbs:protein for optimal recovery.

The ability to take a nap or even to sit down for more than 2 minutes after a long run on the weekend.

A marathon that ends with a smile on my face. Not just because it’s done, but because I ran it my way.

Not have to do laundry for one week.

Run a race with my kids and not have them complain at all. Ok, that is just completely  unrealistic so I’ll allow one complaint per kid.ONLY ONE!

Make my heart burst when you say that you want to be a runner just like Mama.

  1. I seriously think, out of all the wonderful things you mentioned, I would take the not doing laundry for a week!!! Oh how I hate it!!! But yes, I mostly want TIME on Mother’s Day and to not have to rush though workouts, meals or relaxing!
    Happy Mom’s Day to YOU!

  2. Great List!!! I agree with all of those notions, especially the one about having a couple minutes to myself when I walk in the door. Usually I get bombarded as soon as my kids see me. I try to sneak into the shower without them noticing most weekends.

  3. Injury free? Yes, please!

    I’d love for my boys to want to run with me. My youngest? Maybe. But my oldest? No way. Altho I just got back from running my dream race, and yep, I did it my way and enjoyed the entire (almost) ride!

  4. Super nice! I always tell my kids I would like world peace and jelly bean’s for mother’s day- it has been a joke for a decade. A nice meal that I did not plan is always nice 🙂 I hope you have a great Mother’s day!
