Run(ning) used to be what we called taking kids to school, going on errands to pay bills, fill the the car with gas, grocery shop or pick up other kids in a carpool, or volunteering at school, and more. I never minded doing any of that running around. I loved driving and it was part of my “job” as a young mother.
“Stay at home mothers” is a misnomer and I still resent it whenever any mom is asked “do you work?” as if when you do not have a monetary paying job you are a lesser person. I did run an exercise class at the school gym for other stay at home moms like me where they could bring their children. I had an exercise routine of walking, and swimming but running? No.
