Bad Mother Runners

I am lucky enough to have found the most amazing group of military moms to run with twice a week (plus long runs, bike rides, playdates, etc). This group is called Stroller Warriors, and if you've met me since I joined the club, you've probably thought to yourself, "Geez, does this girl EVER talk about anything other than this running club?!".

Running with these women and their children has not only made me a faster, more confident runner; it has made me a better mother and a more sane individual! We share a common bond as military wives and mothers and runners. The group ranges from beginners to blazing fast chicks pushing 100+ pounds in a double stroller. On any given Tuesday or Friday, the people of Camp Lejeune (or Jacksonville, NC) are assaulted by an onslaught of 30-50 strollers running down one of our usual routes. It's truly a sight to behold. During these runs, I've asked about a thousand questions about how to feed/clothe/entertain/fly with Reagan. These ladies have all the answers because they've done it all.

I seriously cannot say enough good things about Stroller Warriors. If you're not part of a running group, I strongly recommend finding one. You'll discover that you are faster and stronger than you ever imagined. Plus, they usually have cool t-shirts.
