“Part of the reason I joined JWS way back in the Winter of 2013 was because I had just had my first child, pictured, Juliana Grace. I was lost. I was 270lbs, coming off of a painful 2 year struggle with infertility and subsequent marital problems. I joined JWS because I wanted to be strong and confident and healthy. I wanted my daughter and any other children I had to look up at me and say wow, my mom is tough stuff!
Since I joined, I can’t even count the miles I’ve run, the friends I’ve made, and the confidence I’ve gained. I think I may actually feel like a little bit of a bad ass. Here’s a picture of this morning. Not-so-baby Juliana Grace’s first official race with Mommy. It was the proudest 28-minute mile I’ve ever run.” –
