First Day Friday: Jeanne

It's Friday! Guest author Jeanne Davis is mom to Sara and has been a dedicated Stroller Strider since 2014. Check out her #FirstDayFriday memory below!

I had never heard about Stroller Strides before. So when I was handed a business card while out on a walk, the only thing I knew was what I briefly saw: a bunch of moms formed in a circle doing some calisthenics. I was planning to be bored. As a dancer who detested step aerobics or any organized exercise class, I went to my first Stroller Strides class not expecting to go back.

On my first class, the instructor Mo was very pregnant and full of energy (something I was lacking postpartum). As we walked and ran with our strollers from station to station, I quickly realized this was no ordinary exercise class. My seat muscles were crying, but I was loving how the whole format of the class made me forget I was exercising.

I quickly felt like a part of a team of mothers working toward strength and fitness. Even better we were outside! Its been almost two years and I still love Stroller Strides for ALL that it offers in fitness and community of mothers!
