Pregnant Runner

Running Through Pregnancy & Beyond Clinic

Expectant and new moms learn best practices for running and nutrition through pregnancy and post-baby.

Going for a run is a quick and effective way to work your heart and body, giving you a mental and physical boost when you feel tired, however, the miracle of life can wreck havoc on women’s workouts. As body changes occur, experts say running form can change dramatically during pregnancy and after birth, resulting in more injuries and less benefit. This special Big River Running clinic is designed especially for moms-to-be and new moms to help keep mom and baby healthy and running through pregnancy and beyond!
