You may have seen it on the MoCo website or heard some buzz in the shop. Mothers & Company has partnered with Three Rivers Building and Susan Manero & Associates Insurance to organize HipHipHerRace (healthy informed people, holistic intuitive parenting), 5K race/walk to benefit Abby’s House. Located in Worcester, Abby’s House is a non-profit organization that serves homeless and battered women and children.

Not a runner? Me neither! But I’m learning how.

Using the Couch to 5K program on coolrunning.com, I’m training myself. The nine-week program gets you (yes, you!) up off the couch and moving in no time. Believe me, I didn’t think it possible, and sure I’ve experienced some set-backs, but the program works. I’ve seen my results and those of several friends. And here’s how I figure it: Even if I can’t run the full 5K, I’m getting that much closer. So I’ll walk a little if I need to. I’ll be raising money for a wonderful organization, having a good time with family and friends, and working toward a personal goal. How can you beat that?
