Deborah Brooks: Confessions of a Mother Runner

Deborah Brooks is the author of the running and food blog “Confessions of a Mother Runner.” She’s the founder of her local chapter of Moms Run This Town (MRTT) and a Girls on the Run coach for the 8th straight year. Deborah didn’t start running until she was rehabbing from a knee injury when her children were little and since then, running has been a consistent source of empowerment – and joy – in her life. In our conversation, Deborah talks about her relationship to food, too.  You can read Deborah’s blog at
