    Welcome to the second episode of AMR Trains, a new podcast under the Another Mother Runner pod umbrella and based on the Train Like a Mother Club.
    In this podcast that comes out every other Tuesday, we’re going to focus on topics related to training, and our guests will include Train Like a Mother Coaches, a variety of #motherrunners and other engaging experts.

    Listen in to find out:
    ·      The best guidelines for setting a goal;
    ·      Why goals don’t necessarily need to be PR- or time-related;
    ·      The single most important thing to helping you achieve your goals (it’s easier than you think!); and
    ·      What BHAG (big hairy audacious goal) Coach Liz is aiming for in 2020.

    #398: Setting the Women’s Marathon World Record—and Sparking a Controversy

    #398: Setting the Women’s Marathon World Record—and Sparking a Controversy

    Sarah and co-host Tish Hamilton are joined by two women associated with the new book Mighty Moe: The True Story of a Thirteen-Year-Old Women's Running Revolutionary—Rachel Swaby, one of the co-authors, and Maureen “Moe” Mancuso, the book’s subject, who set the women’s marathon world record at age 13 (!) in 1967. The quartet cover:
    -Mighty Moe’s 3:15 marathon run—and the resulting negative backlash;
    -marathon legend Kathrine Switzer giving Maureen her due—40 years after the fact;
    -why Maureen gave up running for decades; and,
    -the profound impact Maureen’s accomplishment had on women’s running.
    In the intro, Sarah and Tish talk about "intentionally enjoying" a calmer schedule, and Sarah talks up WMNRUN in hopes of Tish joining BAMRs to run it on March 1. Maureen and Rachel join the show at 15:51.

Funny, informative, inspirational

This is one of my favorite podcasts. I’m not a mother, but I’ve been running for a few years and have learned so much through this podcast! I love the information and interviews packaged with a lot of humor and relatable stories. I probably wouldn’t still be a runner if not for this podcast and the inspiration and information I get from my weekly listens!

My Fav

This podcast is one of my favs—practical, hilarious, light-hearted but full of excellent wisdom and advice. They manage to inspire me without any guilt or pressure. And they are so darn relatable as moms. Just excellent!!

No longer interested

I was loving this show for quite some time. Recently, majority of the episodes are long advertisements for their running groups laced with information I can peruse on Google. I’m already part of a running club and don’t need a new one. Unfortunately, I’ll be taking a break from this podcast. ✌🏻
