It’s no secret that longer ultra distances, including the hundred mile, require additional training time. When putting in more time on the trails, it leaves less time for other duties, chores, or interests.

The folks most challenged in juggling their precious time are mothers. Newborn through teenage years, parental responsibilities tend to trump all other personal interests. Whether it’s breast feeding, finding day care, picking up a sick kiddo from school, or rearranging schedules to accommodate soccer or dance practice…there is always something to consider or address.

So, how do you train for a hundred miler while being a mother?

Thankfully we have special guest mothers: Darcy Piceu, Jenny Jurek, Katie Grossman, and Liza Howard to share their experience, provide tips and suggestions, and to answer your questions.
