This Run Lift Mom Podcast Episode is a minisode Mommy Masterclass: Stroller Running edition. It includes segments of 3 different past subject matter experts from season 1 of the show.
What to pack
…or, rather- what not to pack! Listen as Pie and Sherri discuss the challenges of running with quad jogging strollers and rules in place for keeping the entire unit as light as possible.
The entire episode about these quad stroller running moms is found on season 1 episode 13. Forgive the painful audio. I was new and we have 10 kids between us. Rescheduling was not an option!
Not everyone is running with multiple children, but I included this to satisfy everyone’s curiosity!
After hearing again from quad Moms Pie & Sheri, you’ll hear from triplet Mom Ann Marie Cody, Guinness Word Record holder (& former holder- she’s had multiple) on what it’s like to run with 3.5 foot wide stroller and 3 kids.
Start with why
We talk often about the importance of knowing the deep reason for doing something. Ann Marie discusses her identity as an Astronomer at NASA, Mom, & runner. It’s fascinating how running gives her the clarity for both other areas!
The entire episode about this record holding triplet mom is found on season 1 episode 29– it’s a must listen.
Stroller running form
Many worry about stroller running wrecking their run mechanics. Don’t!
Valerie Hunt of RunRx discusses form and technique for running behind a stroller, which actually prevents reaching and allows you to focus on the pull. This segment is in season 1, episode 52.
Here’s the metronome app she recommends and here’s the video she cites about stroller running.
