Running for Mental Health — Move For Moms! 5k 2014 Atlanta

No Excuse Moms 5K Run Training

I finally have a reason to run! I’ve always wanted to be a runner, and rock those sexy runners legs but never really had the motivation to stick with it. But now that has changed!

I am training for the Move For Moms! 5k. It’s a 5k that will promote Maternal Mental Health — and if you have been hanging around here long enough you know that I’m ALL about raising awareness for Mental Health — Illness —Postpartum Depression and the like!

I’m on week 3 of the Galloway 5k training plan. For once instead of having the all-or-nothing attitude I am actually taking it slow and following the plan to a T!

I recently had the honor of hosting a “morning jog” with my No Excuse Mom group here in Atlanta. I was nervous because I have never hosted ANYTHING! And I am in no way a fitness expert, but it was more about moms getting together and supporting each other. And that we did!

If you are in Atlanta why not join in on the fun and run for a great cause . . . and get fit in the process?

Also exercise is a great way to cope with depression. Runners high anyone? 🙂

You can find out more about Project Healthy Moms on Twitter and at Move For Moms!

P.S. The race starts at 10 a.m. They know what they are doing 😀
