Since we’re not along for the ride to coach your pre-, during-, and post-relay “reset,” we’ve got your sore runner butt covered with #vanyoga. Jasyoga veteran Jacquelyn Komen — racing with Oiselle’s #MotherFlockers, a sweet collab between the birds and Every Mother Counts — demos simple ways to help counter some of the not-so-ideal side effects of running and sitting (crushed hip flexors, anyone?), all from the comfort of the mobile studio…Down time in the van is a great opportunity to practice relaxing efficiently since, hey, conditions might not be ideal, but it’s the only chance you get to hit reset. Hold each pose for 5–8 deep breaths or as long as you flippin’ feel like it. Repeat.

The Run for Aidan story began with the dearly-loved coaching that Mitch and Mindy Leffler (Aidan’s parents) provided to Newport High School’s sizeable cross country and track programs from 1994 to 2006. At the news of Aidan’s diagnosis of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy at age three, a group of dedicated NHS XC moms spearheaded the inaugural 5k run for Aidan on the NHS home cross country course. Now in its eighth year, the purpose of the event remains to benefit Aidan’s medical care fund and to support the awesome Leffler family.
