Another Mother Runner


Another Mother Runner, founded by Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea, has cultivated a community of like-minded women with similar goals and challenges since their best-selling book, Run Like A Mother, hit the shelves in 2010 and struck a chord with audiences across the country. Train Like A Mother followed in 2012, and Tales from Another Mother Runner completed the trilogy in 2015.
