Heather's Corner: Join the #1 Fitness Community for Moms: Oro Valley Moms in Motion

Are you looking for a way to build friendships? Do you need to be active in a supportive and motivational environment Oro Valley moms? Oro Valley Moms in Motion (MIM) is currently accepting new members.

This run club meets in Oro Valley throughout the year. They help "keep each other accountable to our exercise goals," while having an ethos that feeling fit should be on the forefront of your priorities providing you enough energy to tackle all of the daily challenges of motherhood, career, and personal time.

Rebecca Teel leads the local chapter.  She started the chapter because because "I was looking for an avenue to meet other moms who are interested in running.

Moms in Motion is a National organization that just started in Oro Valley on October 5. It is all about support, community and philanthropy. It's a great opportunity to meet other women, to stay active, and to provide a positive role model for our children. The best part is you don't have to be a runner to join. We have moms at all levels, some who walk, others who jog, and some who plan to train for different races including the Arizona Distance Classic 5K, 1/4 marathon and 1/2 marathon."

A coach will help tailor goals for all levels and abilities of those ready and interested in running for fun. Through encouragement of the coach and other moms, you can be in the presence of other supportive women also hoping to challenge themselves. Whether it's to compete in a race, meet new friends, or trim down a pant-size, there is something for everyone.

There are three meeting days available: Sundays at 6:30am, Tuesdays at 7:00 pm, and Thursdays at 9:00 am, with Sundays reserved for just Moms, and the latter options open for families. There are fees to join the national membership of MIM but they include a dry wick team shirt, access to the private team website, and the MIM APP.  For more info contact Rebecca Teel, beccateel@gmail.com or visit the MIM website,
