“Being a mother, especially now, is like running a never-ending marathon: Emotional, excruciating, and exhausting. Mothers are hitting the pandemic wall, with most feeling the mental and physical symptoms of burnout. Just like running a marathon, motherhood, especially during the pandemic, continues to take incredible strength, resilience, and the ability to adapt.
Yet with a marathon, you know that in 26.2 miles there will be a finish line. During the pandemic, the uncertainty of this ending, of getting back to a more normal and balanced life, has taken a toll. You keep looking for a light at the end of the tunnel, but it isn’t there. The silver lining at tough times like this is that we are forced to pause and reflect, reset our attitude and adjust. That’s how we will find that light.
Through this film, we hope to raise awareness for the unique struggles that women continue to endure while celebrating their strength, love for family, and undeniable hope for a finish line filled with joy and triumph.”
