7th Annual Lace up for LOVE Mother’s Day 1 & 5K Walk/Run is excited to see a Team entry by Mommy’s and Babe’s in Motion, a Burlington, Ontario based training team for ladies only!
Mommy’s and Babe’s in Motion is led by Head Coach Nancy Hastings & Assistant Coach Gail Van Egmond, with additional support being provided by Team Leaders (women with knowledge of the sport and team spirit) and Sport Mentors (swim, bike, run and nutrition specialists). The Team embraces women of all ages and experience levels to their triathlon training program. Their youngest athlete has been 18 and their oldest to date has been 78!
“Seeing these ladies lift each other up every Tuesday night and watching them grow and change into confident, empowered ladies is the highlight of my summers “~ Coach Gail
“Our main goal is to stay in motion!” ~ Coach Nancy
Every summer this team of women of all ages, shapes and skill levels come together to train for Triathlons. One of which is the Subaru Iron Girl Canada Triathlon which will be held on Sunday, August 7, 2016 out of Nelles Beach Park, Grimsby, Ontario. Iron Girl is a Sprint distance triathlon with a 500 m shallow and safe swim; 20 km flat and friendly bike and a 5 km spectator lined run course with a fundraising component in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF). Coach Gail says, “Every year we have a lot of ‘newbies’. I always feel so honoured that they are choosing me to share their journey with.”
Mommy’s and Babe’s in Motion take quite a journey with each other through the summer as they train. They get in 2 of the 3 sports weekly along with workshops, social nights and a year-end party to celebrate all their hard work.
One returning teammate Kelly says, “For me, it is about pushing me beyond my comfort zone, doing things I never thought I could, and being supported by an amazing group of women along the way…I realized that these amazing women helped me achieve something I never thought possible.”
