From our Instructor Molly ... I remember Lindsay and sweet, tiny Baby Lucas joining us in the winter months last year and being so impressed with her commitment to getting out to class even on those cold days! I have loved getting to know Lindsay as we have bonded over our love of the Pacific Northwest (no place like it, go visit!) and have been in awe of her determination to run ELEVEN miles while pushing Lucas! Lindsay always shows up ready to work hard, welcome new moms and show Lucas that a healthy lifestyle is important! I am so glad she is in our village!!
Get to know Lindsay.....
Tell us about your family -How long have you been married? How did you meet?
I have been married to my Husband Joe for 6 years. We met in Fairfax, VA in our church small group. He had moved to Fairfax from Maine for work and I had moved to Fairfax from Oregon to attend Grad School at George Mason University. We like to say that opposites really do attract. We have a son named Lucas who is 13 months. He has the best smile!
What do you like to do as a family?
We love to be outdoors, from hiking and running local races to going to the beach, we do it all.
2) What is your favorite part of motherhood?
My favorite part of motherhood is watching Lucas grow and develop, every day he is doing something new and a new piece of his personality is exposed, I love being able to see that happen!
What one piece of advice would you give to a first time mom?
One piece of advice I’d give a new mom, is do you. You’ll get tons advice some good some bad from family, friends and even strangers, but you know your babe best and at the end of the end of the day you know what will work and what won’t!
3) How long have you been involved in SS?
I have been attending stroller strides since February 2017.
What classes do you usually attend?
What brought you to us?
Facebook, but I was looking to connect with other moms and get back in shape. My son was 3 months and my husband was gone and I needed a place where I could find community and I did!
Why do you stay?
The community of moms and the workouts! I love the friends I’ve made and it has been a great opportunity for Lucas to meet friends as well!
