Sweaty Bands + Train Like a Mother

New product

This gorgeous band is the result of crossing one of Sweaty Bands most popular current styles--Watercolors--with our book covers: It has the yellow and orange of our first two books, and the words are the blue of our latest tome. It adds the perfect bit of sass and polish to any running ensemble.

It repeats the phrase "mother runner" three times across the band in blue, punctuated by a pair of deep orange women's running shoes. The band's velvet backing keeps flyaways out of your face when you’re running, mother runner. If you know Sweaty Bands, you’ll love this one! 1” wide. Velvet backing is aqua blue.

This orange book is exactly what you need to get across any finish line from a 5K to a marathon, complete with nine training plans (a beginner-level Finish It plan and a more challenging Own It plan for 5K, 10K, half-marathon, and marathon, plus a plan for injured runners). It speaks to you in the same witty, conversational tone as our first book, Run Like a Mother, covering everything from nutrition and injury prevention to setting race goals. In the back of the book is an Another Mother Runner dictionary, complete with definitions to terms like, "barnacle buster," "puke pace," and "slaying the dragon."

But don't take our word for how invaluable and entertaining this orange beaut is. Here's what Amazon says about TLAM: "From the authors of the runaway success Run Like a Mother, a book that fans are clamoring for on how to train for a race, including practical advice on all aspects of race preparation presented with the authors' trademark wit and empathy.

"At its core, Train Like a Mother comprehensively covers how to train for a race, including training plans for four race distances (5K, 10K, half-marathon, and marathon) for both beginner and more experienced runners; the importance of recovery; pre- and post-race nutrition; strength training; injury prevention (and rehab); and everything busy women need to know to add racing to their multitasking schedules. It is all presented with the same wit, empathy, and tone the avid fans connect and identify with.

"The book is divided into 13.1 chapters--the distance of a half-marathon, the sweet spot for many mother runners--narrated by both Sarah and Dimity. Like the first book, Train Like a Mother chapters have plenty of sidebars, including Practical Motherly Advice (helpful information about training- and race-related advice) and Take It from a Mother (advice and answers from the growing tribe of running moms). The .1 sections are entertaining 'commercial breaks' celebrating the sport of running and the added thrill of racing."
