Mother and Daughters, Stronger Togetherdigital
Most moms and daughters enjoy shopping, getting pedicures, and traveling together – the usual really fun, restorative stuff—but for the Lindstrands, Tammy (54), Laura (26) and Sarah (22), add to this mix running the Gildan Esprit de She Maple Grove 5K. August 3 marks their third one together.
Laura is a big time runner, having played college tennis and transitioning to running after graduation to stay fit and connect with nature. And, Sarah is starting to get more into it now that she, too, as graduated college. For the thrill of it, the trio decided a 5K together would be a great way to have fun, be healthy and spend time with each other. Tammy says the girls run faster that she does, but it’s totally okay because as she puts it, it’s “our” thing—and last year, she finished within 30 minutes, which is totally respectable. Plus, she’s no stranger to the road—she has a 10k under her belt, too.
Why Esprit de She? Because they found it to be accessible, doable and fun. It’s women inspiring and supporting women and reveling in their shared accomplishment. After their first one, which was in Edina, they loved the post race celebration with its signature Bubbly Bar toast and LifeStyle Market. And, it isn’t just how Esprit de She wraps up that they love; it’s how it starts out, too – women of every age, high-energy music, and heart-pumping exercise. Tammy knows running together will be something special for her daughters lifelong. And as a group? Well, the three of them plan to keep at it as long as there’s a road, a race and bodies that can master the miles.
It’s not too late to grab your moms, daughters, sisters and friends to register for the Gildan Esprit de She Maple Grove fitness inspired happy hour, happening Thursday, August 3 from 4-9pm at Central Park. For women of all ages, this evening designer 5K includes high value participant gear, a Lifestyle Market and more–beginning with a timed 5K and ending with a post-race night celebration of festive proportions that includes saluting your success with a drink at the signature Bubbly Bar, enjoying healthy eats, live music and the Lifestyle Market featuring massage and manicures at the Beauty Bar powered by LifeSpa, and more.
