I wasn’t planning on posting today but I just had to share some exciting news. I’m in the Wall Street Journal!!! Ahhhhhhh! I never thought I’d ever end up in any magazine let alone the WSJ. I was contacted last month by Elizabeth Holmes, a feature reporter for the WSJ, who was doing research on the new trend of fit moms. I was beginning to think the story wasn’t even going to run. However on Wednesday afternoon I got a call from Elizabeth for a fact check and to tell me it was running on Thursday. Woo-hoo! 🙂

My friend Laura, from Mommy, Run Fast is also quoted in the article. Here’s a video where Elizabeth discusses the trend. She references my quote. Hehe…Ron will forever be known as the guy who tells his wife to go for a run when she’s crabby! 😉
I think this new trend is here to stay, don’t you? Just like my post from yesterday stated, we are the biggest influence over our children. If you MOVE they MOVE. I know when I first became a mom, I suffered from the Mommy Guilt of taking time away from my kids to workout. Now I realize that when it comes to fitness and health, if you aren’t taking care of yourself first, you won’t be able to take care of your children.
Being a fit Mama makes me a better Mama.
A huge THANK YOU to Elizabeth and the Wall Street Journal for reaching out to me for this article. I feel honored to be a part of The Rise of the Fit Mamas!
