Tired Mom Runs: Embrace the Nordic Fitness Twist

At Tired Mom Runs, we're dedicated to helping moms (and dads) discover the joy of movement and embrace the invigorating Nordic fitness twist. We understand that motherhood often leaves you feeling overwhelmed and drained, making self-care essential.

Our coaching programs are carefully crafted to equip moms with the skills to lead healthier, happier lives, find their inner strength while balancing the demands of motherhood, all with a Nordic Touch. 

Embrace Nordic Fitness for a Rejuvenated You!

Being a mom is a rewarding journey, but it's no secret that it comes with a whirlwind of responsibilities and demands. At Tired Mom Runs, we recognize the paramount importance of self-care, especially for moms. We're here to seamlessly blend the Nordic way of living with the unique needs and challenges that come with motherhood.

In the Nordic countries, a balanced and active lifestyle is more than a choice—it's a way of life deeply ingrained in the culture. Nordic living emphasizes the harmony between being active, embracing the outdoors, and fostering a sense of community.

Why is it essential for tired moms to adopt this lifestyle? Because just like in the Nordic way, taking care of yourself is the foundation of taking care of your family. When you prioritize your well-being, you not only nurture your own vitality but also have the energy and strength to be the best version of yourself for your loved ones.

Picture this: You, a badass mom, immersing yourself in the Nordic way, feeling the wind against your face as you run through serene landscapes, channelling the inner strength that Nordic living inspires.


With our online coaching program, we're here to guide you in reigniting your energy levels, reclaiming your body, and experiencing the exhilaration of an active lifestyle.

Our coaching program acknowledges the unique challenges moms face. From sleepless nights to endless multitasking, we understand that taking care of yourself can often feel like an impossible task. But fear not! Tired Mom Runs is here to inject much-needed energy and fun into your life, aligning with the rejuvenating spirit of Nordic living.

We provide a wealth of resources, from expert training plans to nutrition tips tailored specifically for tired moms. We understand the need for short, effective workouts that fit into your busy schedule.

Our community of tired but determined moms stands as a testament to the power of collective support. Connect with like-minded women who comprehend the joys and frustrations of motherhood. Share your triumphs, vent about challenging moments, and celebrate each other's victories, big or small.

Hi, I'm Marjaana Rakai, A Proud Nordic Soul and Tired Mom Runs!

I hail from the pristine landscapes of North Finland, where the magic of Nordic living shaped my existence for the first part of my life. Having spent 30 years immersed in the culture and vitality of Finland and Norway, I've assimilated the essence of Nordic well-being into the very fabric of my being.

In my reality, exercise isn't a chore; it's a wellspring of rejuvenation and happiness—an absolute priority in the chaos of life. It's a reflection of "sisu," the Finnish concept of extraordinary courage, determination, and resilience, embodying the spirit of pushing forward in the face of adversity.

My mission is to foster a community where moms like you can wholeheartedly embrace the transformative power of movement, propelling both yourself and your family to greater heights through every step, stretch, and motion.

As a former high-level cross-country skier in my youth and now an elite-level age group Ironman triathlete, I've lived and breathed the spirit of "sisu." I understand the challenges and exhaustion that accompany the beautiful chaos of motherhood.


Yet, I firmly believe that through the pure joy of movement, we can tap into an unstoppable force within us. Together, we can cast off the weight of fatigue and embrace a life teeming with energy and purpose.

Whether it's lacing up our running shoes, pedaling into the horizon, donning comfortable yoga pants, or engaging in any form of physical activity that electrifies our senses, let's embark on this exhilarating journey together.

It won't always be easy, but with our collective strength, courage, and unwavering support for one another, we can conquer any obstacle that crosses our path.

I am deeply passionate about aiding you in elevating not only yourself but also your entire life through the simple yet profound power of movement. It would be my honour to be a part of your unique journey.

So, take the first step, reach out to me today, and let's delve into how I can support you on this extraordinary path toward the life you genuinely deserve.

Let's explore and embark on this transformative adventure—together.


Fun Fact: My name in Finnish means Courageous.

"Being a working twin mom has always made it difficult tough to prioritize working out. This was until I got MJ as my coach. She analyzed my situation and my goals. Weekly she provides programs - just for me - and she follows up each workout. This has led to a shift in my life. Now - I have time for family, work, and training. And I'm reaching my goals and I have more energy!"

So which service to choose from, you ask?! 

Let me ask you something... Are you at your wits end with the Bro Science on Google? Have you tried all the challenges and workouts and are still not happy with the state of your wellness? Are you tired... so tired. You know something needs to change, but you don't know what. 

Start with the Nordic Twist. Why? Because that transforming your life, and building habits that stick, honestly, takes time. It is not a month-long challenge that will change your life if you don't change your life, you know what I mean?!  


If you want to check out what I have to offer, you know, you are still on that tyre-kicking phase, not sure whether to commit fully, but want to try if my methods actually give any results, then, go for the Nordic Lykke, a month-long Kickstarter. 

If you want to dig deeper into the nitty-gritty of how to actually transform your life as a tired, busy mom, without the personal in-depth coaching that the Nordic Twist gets you, then chose the 6 month-long the Nordic Way Group Coaching Program, where you'll break down your habits, mindset, learn how to put your health and fitness on the drivers seat. 

And when you're done, join the fellow, like-minded moms inside Nordic Tribe, and continue your journey in embracing your Nordic fitness with me and our community! 

You see, it is a journey, not a destination, and I am here with you from the start until you feel confident in your own skills and capabilities to continue without coaching.  Because that is the ultimate goal with my services, to see you off confident that you will soar!
