FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

MIT Website 

 

Q: How much do I have to fundraise in order to participate? 
A: We ask you to commit to raising at least $500. You will receive a fundraising website & additional staff support. There is a $100 registration fee to join, which is credited toward your fundraising goal and is a tax deductible donation.
 The average mom raises $1,500!

Q: I know someone personally affected by cancer. Can I train in honor or memory of this person? 
A: Absolutely! We encourage you to honor someone you know who has been affected by ANY type of cancer.

Q: Is my child allowed at the work-out? 
A: As long as your baby is able to remain in the stroller, you are welcome to bring your baby to the training sessions! The workouts allow you to exercise with a stroller.  For safety reasons, you'll need a jogger if you plan to run. If you come with another type of stroller, you should plan to walk for that workout -- they just aren't balanced properly and could tip over, and no one wants that! If you have questions about jogging strollers, just ask the coaches.

Q: What if I've never run with a stroller before? 
A: We will go over proper running form, with and without strollers. If you bring the stroller and the workout is too difficult for you (because pushing that extra load is a LOT on your body!), the coaches will gladly help you out and take over stroller duty for a bit. Please remember that extra weight is extra stress on your body, and if you're not used to running with it, you need to build up slowly so you don't get injured. Do not be shy about letting us know if it's too much at any time.

Q: What if I can't attend all the work-outs or participate in the November 22nd event?
A: The program is tailored around being flexible for moms! We encourage you to attend as many work-outs as you can. You can still participate in the program even if you are unable to participate in the November 22nd 4-miler.

Q: What do the work-outs consist of?
A: Each workout will be 60-70 mins. The last 10-15 minutes will consist of a core and strength session, and a group stretch. We really want you to stick around for this if possible! And if you can't, we want you to do the core exercises and stretch when you get home -- even if it's later in the day.

Q: How do I know what to wear for the weather? 
A: Generally speaking, it will feel 15-20 degrees warmer than the air temperature when you are running, so if it's 60 outside, it will feel like 75 mid workout. Keep in mind we will be doing a warm up and cool down, so it's always best to dress in layers you can take on and off easily. This tool from Runner's World is a fantastic guide on how to dress for various conditions.

Q: Do I need to bring water? 
A: There are water fountains near many of our meeting locations, but you may want to consider bringing a bottle you can easily carry with you on your run.

Q: Can I leave early? 
A: If you need to leave early, just let your coaches know or ask a teammate to relay the message so we don't worry about you.  

Q: I am not an athlete at all! Can I really train to complete a 4-mile run/walk in ten weeks? 
A: YES! We have moms of all levels who join. You have the ability to run, walk, or do a run/walk combination.
