Let's come together as moms to dedicate some time to taking care of ourselves so we can be the best moms we can be and to hopefully create new friendships! We will have a few options of days and times with set locations to get together to socialize and exercise through running each week. You do not have to be an experienced runner to join us!! We can also have events like coffees hours, moms night out and play dates too.
**update 7/13/15** I would like to relaunch this group on a new platform. I don't have the time or expertise to do this. (If you would like to join an active, and guaranteed-to-be-free page, I can not recommend MRTT Alexandria/Arlington enough--they are amazing! https://www.facebook.com/groups/AlexandriaM...) You may have already noticed a change with your other groups--Meetup is encouraging Organizers to collect dues, changing the pricing, reducing billing options and not allowing optional member donations. I personally don't think it's fair to say that Meetup is free to join, but then expect members to pay something like $10 for every group. (Have a flat fee and be done with it. Also, it's just a forum, they aren't organizing or doing anything--I don't feel like dishing out money to have members and organizers do all the work anyway. Done venting; I promise!)
If you like the group, donations are encouraged, but not required. $1 via Paypal "Friends and Family" goes a long way. On Paypal, please make a note of your name & donation, in case it is different than your name on this page (i.e. maiden name, nickname name, etc..). Your donations will be logged on the money section of this group http://www.meetup.com/Moms-on-the-run-of-Al... will be used exclusively to keep this page up--NOT for profit!
I encourage you to make the best of the group! Plan, have fun, make connections, share email, network at events, make friends! We're moving forward this year--stay tuned for an updated page. Thanks for your patience.
