“Track Mom ” was created to provide an informational site for Track Moms (and Dad’s too) to learn and share tips and highlight the achievements of youth track athlete ages 5-15. When Lauren Rain was 7 years old she began running . I found no easily accessible resources to help me understand and get more involved in the sport I have loved since my youth.
After Lauren’s first complete season of competition I had learned a great deal about the process of competing unattached ,considering joining a team(lots of good ones to chose from) , joining a team, how to prepare for traveling to a National Championship, assistant training, psychology of winning, importance of rest….And that’s just the beginning .
I am married to Henry Williams, and we consider it an honor to raise and nurture Lauren together. We are a family that is enjoying the journey of track and field and our lives together.
Today, I am a full time TrackMom, part-time Chiropractor. Helping with Lauren’s training and all the other activities that drive her little engine. Writing and currently in the process of finishing my second book.
I hope to introduce the concept here at TrackMom.com that a little positive sports intervention with, Chiropractic, good functional movement training, bodywork, proper nutrition, hydration, rest, proper recovery and good balanced age appropriate training with a heavy dose of fun can go along way to healthy and productive competition .
I am the co-author of my first book titled:

Lauren’s 6th Track and Field Season Was Great …..
At the USATF JO Youth Division (13-14) she earned 2 Bronze and AAU Sub Youth(13) 2 Gold. She PR’ed in the 100m during semi’s of 11.79. Lauren’s personal best of the season was 23.71 in the 200m and . The best news is she will be back in the Youth Division as a 14 year old one more time in 2013.
This is my 4th year of TrackMom.com and it continues to be a pleasure and honor to share my knowledge, TrackMom observations and my journey to Lauren’s Dream. I am humbled by the friendliness and well wishes I receive at the tracks around the country and via e-mail.
I never expected TrackMom.com to reach more than ten or twenty friends and now it is thousands.I certainly didn’t expect to make life long friends that now count as many. My readers have shared unthinkable sadness at the loss of a child actually collapsing during practice doing the thing the child loved most.
The joys many parents experience as their athletes accomplished a personal goal,athletes writing me and telling me how much they learn from reading about food and diet here at TrackMom.com. The kindness of strangers inviting us over for meal while traveling during JO’s.
I have gained so much from TrackMom.com and I hope to continue to give something of value back for years to come. When I began my TrackMom journey it wasn’t planned to be one of the focal points of my life.It has taken on it’s own force and direction so you, like me will have to stay tuned for the next chapter…
THE YOUTH DIVISION and The Official EXIT Of LAUREN in age group track is upon us in 2013, the teenage Lauren has arrived, ready to be the best competitor she can.
Thanks For Sharing The Journey
