To celebrate all the bad*ss mothers who have created new traditions, learned new skills, discovered new places, and persevered this past year, we invited you to head to Instagram and tag photos of #onetoughmother in your life. (more…)
We are also MOMS, RISK TAKERS, RULE BREAKERS, and yes, even lunch makers…
We design, build, select, and sell gear for women who RUN the House and FIX the house. For moms who MANAGE Zoom class schedules while running Zoom meetings. For women who BUILD strong communities and the damn IKEA furniture. And WE DESERVE gear that fits our bodies, our lives, and our adventures. (more…)

#motherrunners stand for exactly what you do: strength, confidence, beauty, awesomeness.” She was right. Without disclosing too much information, we are happy to promote their photo essay, What a Mother Runner Looks Like. Please, feel free to participate in the project by sharing your photos! Be proud of your work, of your body and YOU! We will happily share and deliver photos to AMR on your behalf.
