Instructor, Jennifer Maloof : "Jen has only been with us for a few short months, but has been committed 100% ever since her first class. She comes to class most days of the week and, not to mention, walks at least a mile to get to class (with hills), as well as participates in a Mommy & Me Yoga class with her sweet little man. Her devotion to fitness & motherhood is truly inspiring. Unfortunately, Jen will be leaving us soon as her family will be making a move back to Iowa. She is so saddened to leave SS, as it has been such an awesome outlet for her. She has even contemplated starting a franchise back in Iowa. Jen, it has been such a joy to have your postive energy in class. I wish you much luck as you continue to make great strides in fitness, even in the snow :) Your SS family will miss you!"

3. How long have you been a member of Stroller Strides of North Orange County and what has it done for you?
I joined Stroller Strides in January 2014. Stroller Strides has given me the opportunity to connect w/ other moms, Jace the chance to socialize, and has reignited my passion for working out. The biggest thing this group and Stroller Strides has done for me is make me feel at home. Having recently moved here, not knowing anyone and then having a baby, was a shock to the system. I never felt at home in California until I found Stroller Strides. The comradery of women within this group is amazing, and I am grateful to call them friends.
4. What is something that has surprised you about motherhood?
The thing that has surprised me the most about motherhood is the courage I have gained. I want my kid(s) to have the courage to try new things and embrace new experiences throughout life, and I hope they will learn some of that from the examples I have given them.
5. Favorite website(s)?
Pinterest, Facebook, realtor.com
6. List three current obsessions.
I am obsessed with Pinterest and trying out new recipes, photo ideas (usually involving Jace), and decorating tips.
7. What is your child's/children's favorite thing about you or favorite thing that you do?
Jace loves to play peek a boo and bubbles with me.
8. Any tips for other moms out there?
My tips for any moms out there is to join Stroller Strides, or any Fit4Mom group, if you have them in your area! Whether you are a new mom, have seven kids, a triathlete, or just starting to workout for the first time, join a Stroller Strides! It will do amazing things to help your esteem, confidence as a mother, and you will build such a wonderful network of friends! Not just for you, but for your children as well. I promise you will sweat, laugh, and have a blast!
