This Mother's Day, we celebrate a few of the Mother Runners in our community.
Evie Quah, Kareen Lai, Stephanie Lim and Zoey Wong are mothers, runners and friends who share a love of running and fitness, and this week spent some time talking with us about how they balance their responsibilities to their careers, their families and themselves.
The Tailwind Nutrition origin story begins in a rubbish bin, in which company co-founder Jeff Vierling had his head after finishing the famous Leadville Trail 100 MTB mountain bike race. Jeff's muesli came up, and he thought, "There's gotta be a better way." After extensive research, he realized that most sports nutrition products contain ingredients that are hard to digest, and began experimenting with batches of powder formulated to match the way the body absorbs fuel. Lots of experimentation on himself, his wife and co-founder Jenny, and their local Thursday Bike n’ Beer group in Durango eventually produced a product that people...
Dr. Jesse Timm is known to some in the RDRC community for the series of minimalist running workshops he held last year at the shop. He is also known – in his day job role as a chiropractor – for the help he has provided to some of us when we’ve had back or alignment problems.

Taiwanese-Texan Jenny Huang is well-known on Singapore’s road racing scene (back when there was a road racing scene!), but she casts a much longer shadow out in the world of athletes from every sport (even desk jockeys!) who from time to time find that their bodies are not working quite right. Jenny is the founder and owner of HelloPhysio, which provides a wide range of physiotherapy and related services. We hate injuries, and we know you do too, so we thought we would talk to Jenny about what to do when you get injured, and more importantly, how to prevent...
Tomokazu Ihara’s story is well-known to many members of the Red Dot Running Company community. In 2007, Tomo was an overweight Japanese salaryman with an unhealthy lifestyle, but having just joined a sporting goods company, he entered a company-wide competition to see who could lose the most weight within three months. He set himself a goal of running 5 kilometres every day, and lost seven kilogrammes, winning the contest. After that, 5km turned into 10, then 15, 20, 50 and 100, and now Tomo is in the process of running 100 miles 100 times. Until 2018 Tomo had finished every...
