Am I a…mother runner?! Apparently I am!
It’s still so new and a little bit strange to be part of the community of moms who run. My little girl (aka Baby E) is 9 months old now, which is crazy to me! As I’ve been on my postpartum journey, it’s been a wild ride and I almost feel like I’ve had to start over in a lot of ways! A lot of “managing expectations” and the like…
So I was really excited to get the chance to trial membership to Many Happy Miles from Another Mother Runner. You may be familiar with AMR’s popular podcast. Many Happy Miles is a fitness platform and community for mother runners of any/all fitness levels. I think there’s something for just about everyone! Keep reading for my review!

Many Happy Miles has a LOT to offer, and it’s catered to the mom who runs, which I think is awesome! Here are some of the highlights:
Whether you’re an experienced runner or starting from scratch, there is something for everyone!
I had a 3 month trial of Many Happy Miles from August to October and I downloaded the app right away. While it took me a little while to get used to how it works, it packs a punch! There are several forums where members can talk about just about anything from nutrition, to newbie runner tips, to injury prevention, to day-to-day life!
Each month, a brand new set of workouts is introduced that revolves around a theme. For October, the theme is “Getting After It” with workouts created by Guest Coach Carrie Tollefson, 2004 Olympian! Running workouts are very specific, including paces and time durations, but there’s still plenty of space for flexibility, which I’ve needed a lot of lately!
I’ve mentioned in my previous post that I’ve been doing the October Challenge to “Get out the door in record time”. Setting an alarm has worked relatively well, but I need to work harder on my pump-up music, especially since it’s effective!
By far, my favorite part of Many Happy Miles is the access to exclusive workshops! In August, there was a workshop on pelvic floor health, and in September, there was one on foot strengthening, which was particularly timely! You can also go back in the archives and check out previous workshops as part of your membership. I learned a great deal and am still using the tools I learned from those sessions (though I do need to get back on those pelvic floor exercises!).
All in all, Many Happy Miles is a one-stop-shop. You can effectively get all of your workouts in one place while continuing to build your strength as a runner. There are live yoga classes, on-demand demonstration videos, and a team that is happy to answer any questions. I was really impressed! I would definitely recommend Many Happy Miles if you’re looking to try something new! If I didn’t already have other fitness subscriptions that I enjoy, I’d lock in for a full year with Many Happy Miles!
You can sign up for annual membership to Many Happy Miles anytime! There is an annual membership for $170 or you can upgrade to get a cute zip-up hoodie for $220. Considering that a running coach alone can cost $170 in just a few months (or less), this is a really great deal! Let me know if you decide to sign up, I’d love to hear what you think!
