Mother Runner!

Ask a mother how her day went and you may often hear the word “running” in the answer as in: running errands, running after the kids, running to make an appointment.

Thursday in the first half of Up to Date, Steve Kraske talks with with two women who are mothers and runners.  Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea, authors of Run Like a Motherand Train Like a Mother: How to Get Across Any Finish Line - and Not Lose Your Family, Job, or Sanity give us some advice and practical strategies to help multitasking moms make running part of their busy lives. 

Dimity and Sarah are also the authors of the website, AnotherMotherRunner.com

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9, my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers.
