If you have been a runner or becoming a new runner or you are a veteran runner that has become a mother, this is a MUST read!!!!!The anecdotes of being a mother runner are hilarious and that one relates to. I was having a hard time re-starting my running after having my first child, but with this book it gave me motivation to get up and do it! It is an easy and fun read with plenty of valid information and guidelines to help you get started for the first time, get re-started or motivate to continue.

I love this book, and is predecessor Run Like a Mother. Both books give women the motivation and tools to start (or continue) running while managing the rest of their busy lives. Train Like a Mother contains 2 training plans for each common race distance (5K, 10K, half marathon and marathon), one plan is for beginners to that distance and the other is for more experienced runners who want to improve. No matter where you are in your running you will find something in this book that is just right for you.

It was exactly what I anticipated. Chatty while passing on wisdom. Information was easy to envision, so hopefully more easily retained.

I loved the first book by Sarah and Dimity - How To Train Like A Mother - and was not dissapointed at all by their sequel. The first book got me motivated to get off the couch and start running and this one helped me make goals to take my running to another level. Sarah and Dimity are hilarious and I honestly feel like I know them personally just by reading the book. The Training Plans are doable and enjoyable with the option to take it up a notch if you want. They are full of extra information and even advice on which run to skip if you need to. I used the Half Marathon Plan and have found it to be easy to stick to while challenging both my mental and physical fitness. I love that these ladies often involve the following of women who support them - the tribe - in the survey questions that are dotted throughout the book. It brings a personal feel to all us Mom's who want something else in common besides our kids. I would recommend this book (and How to Train Like A Mother) to new runners and experienced runners. Hoping there is another book in the future for these ladies!

Great read and approachable training plans for all levels! Dec 26 2012
By A. Jorgenson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I love the humor and easy writing style of the authors. After reading Run Like a Mother, I was so excited for this book. It didn't disappoint! In addition to lots of advice and anecdotes, this book offers 2 training plans for each distance (5k, 10k, 13.1 and 26.2) - beginner and advanced. I'm currently in Week 9 of the Marathon: Finish It plan (20-week), and, with plenty of other things going on in my life, have really appreciated the flexibility. I would normally feel guilty about not rigidly following a plan, but these plans give you the option to skip the occasional run if life gets in the way. (Not the long run, though!) I'm so grateful for that permission, and I still feel 100% on track! Love the mix of hill workouts, interval training, tempo, race pace, easy pace, negative splits, etc. Keeps things interesting!

A must for all levels of runners! Nov. 18 2012
By E. Charpentier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I cannot say enough good things about this book and how it has made me a better runner. I bought it in April, after I'd been running for a year and completed my first half marathon. After running a half marathon, I decided to use this book to work on my 5k speed. Despite running a 5k in rough conditions (red flag at the start of the course due to heat and humidity), I STILL managed a 5K PR and saw my running speed increase overall as a result of the speed work. After finishing the 5k plan, I thought, "Hmm... I wonder what I could do with the half marathon Own It plan?" Remember, I bought this book just after completing my first half. While I was happy with my time in my first half, as my only goal was to finish it as strong as I could, I knew I could do better. I won't lie... the Own It half marathon plan is not easy. As I looked through the plan, I wondered what I was getting myself into especially since I'm a teacher and starting this plan coincided with the start of the school year. But I wanted that PR and I knew that the plans in this book could help me get there, so I told myself to shut up and do it.
As I followed this plan, I felt myself become a stronger, faster runner with each week that passed. It's not easy, of course, but is owning something ever easy? As race day drew near, the weather forecast was not favorable. Warmer than usual for November in the Midwest, but winds of 20-30mph with gusts up to 50mph predicted for the entire race--which was, of course, on country roads with wide open fields. No wind breaks. It felt like the wind was in my face for the entire race and yet, I still managed to pull of a THIRTEEN minute PR. Just like my 5k PR, it was in less than favorable weather and yet, the plans in this book are so strong that they make you stronger than poor weather conditions. Buy this book, whether you're just starting out or you want to improve your times--you won't regret it!

At last! March 20 2012
By Jo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am so excited to finally get my hands on this book! This is a must have for any woman, mom or not, who is looking to train for a race or who is on the fence about whether or not they should toe the line. It's written in the same approachable, witty style as Run Like A Mother - smart writing with laugh out loud funny parts. The training plans are realistic and adaptable. If you've listened to their Another Mother Runner podcasts and you know what these women sound like, you can almost hear them reading the words right off the page to you. I'll definitely be using the half marathon Finish It plan, because I'm coming off an injury and want to make it across the finish line injury free. My husband is planning on following the marathon Own It Plan, because he has a serious PR within his reach. So glad this book is out and I can get excited about the training season ahead!

A must for any runner. May 27 2013
By Elissa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is full of great advice and inspiring stories. And as a bonus, it comes with training plans for every level of runner. This book is great to pick up when you want to begin running, or if you want a bit of something to help you get out the door after a running lull. This book and it's sister book have literally transformed my life. I used to think running was just ridiculous, now I use it as a stress reliever and for fitness. I suggest this book to all of my friends. It is worth every penny!
