This year we have been truly amazed by our growth and continued support within our chapter. In reflection, it is truly wonderful how many lives we’ve touched and how our own lives have been enriched through our wonderful chapter of Seminole County Moms Run This Town. I wanted to just make a quick post on some highlights – please feel free to comment things that stuck out for you too!
January: We many of us began working on 2016 miles in 2016. MRTT was the largest group at Lady Track Shack!
February: We held our annual “meet up” for the National MRTT Winter Virtual and ended it with an amazing time at Cork & Olive Wine Bar (oh those jackets!)and Featured in local Magazines such as Lake Mary Life, Oviedo-Winter Springs Life & Altamonte Wekiva Life Magazines.
March: With other Central Florida Chapters we continued our support of local races with SwampHouse and BDR challenges and showed our medieval side at the Excalibur 10 miler.
April: Many of us braved the dark side with the Inaugural Dark Side Challenge at Disney.
May: Where else would you see MRTT Mamas? But at Local Mother’s Day Races and of course beach side in Cocoa!
June & July: brought us Echo, Suck it up buttercup and Summer challenges such as our very own Seminole Trail Challenge
August: We Sparkled Up & Went to Central Winds to host our Summer Virtual Event
September, October & November: Pub Runs, Moms Miles Challenge and one of the most active race seasons our chapter has ever seen with members at NYC, Chicago and SpaceCoast – many doing their first MARATHON EVER! Plus an epic food drive with donut winnings.
Here we are wrapping up December – just finishing our toy drive, social events and much encouragement and excitement as we move towards 2017. Thank you to everyone that participates in our group – whether they are a group run leader, post liker or just lurking on the page in hopes for encouragement. Whatever capacity you are very much a treasured part of our group and we hope you enjoyed 2016; now onward we go! 2017 – let’s make it the best yet!

Tonight was the end of the Moms Miles Challenge. Thank you to all who participated, attended meetups, hosted races & runs, encouraged & inspired. Remember we are a FULL volunteer organization and it’s your participation that keeps us going!
We will celebrate on December 11th – but tonight we have accomplished over 3000 miles as a chapter & 549 runs! YOU all are what make Seminole County Moms Run This Town an amazing organization for women to move! Forward is a pace and together we keep moving forward.
Give yourself a pat on the back and celebrate the achievements! Amazing job done by all.
In Florida it takes a while to feel like Fall – but the races feel amazing when it does! Seminole County Moms Run This Town participated in numerous races and events throughout the month of October.
All Month from October 5th – November 4th we have been busy working hard to “trick or treat” our members. IF you haven’t seen someone at your group run – you will soon with treats that include a junior size frosty, sweets and give-a-ways from our amazing Summer Virtual Vendors.
Starting with Pink Feet on October 11th – members supported Breast Cancer Awareness by running either a 5k or 10K.
Seminole County MRTT continued to raise awareness by hosting a PINK OUT week within the chapter. Members were encouraged to wear PINK to support those that have been affected by Breast Cancer. Our PINK OUT Contest continued through October 18th. We are fortunate to have a Donna Marathon Representative who is also battling breast cancer in our chapter. Tracey shared her discount code with the chapter for registrations of the Donna Marathon Weekend in Jacksonville, FL – February 2016 . Discount Code: AmbTracey16
Pink OUT week ended in a Raffle won by Nikki and she received an awesome MRTT shoe charm.
October 19th – October 23rd we changed our focus to a GIVE BACK and painted it purple for the week to raise awareness for for Domestic Violence. Our local shelter “Safe House of Seminole” was chosen as the charity for donations. Members sent in items that the organization needs for the individuals supported. For awareness members were asked to wear purple or participate in the Paint It Purple Program. Domestic Violence is typically a hidden social problem, SCMRTT wanted to do their part for awareness.
October isn’t over yet! We are currently having a blast with HALLOWEEN WEEK! Encouraging members to run in costume all week long! Raffle at the end – so put on those costumes! So far we’ve had a “hunter with her dog”, evil queen, a hula girl and a whole group of costumed mamas including one as Forrest Gump!
