I'll be honest---I'm starting to not feel so bad about Mondays anymore! I've said it many times but Meet Our Village Mondays are so wonderful and since the addition of classes in Wyoming, it has been such a great way to get to know members that I don't see very often/never see. Thank you all for participating in Meet Our Village Mondays, for putting up with my badgering ;-), and for taking the time to learn more about the other moms in our group.
Speaking of learning more, today we are learning more about the fantastic Katie Crystal! Enjoy!
How long have you been with FIT4MOM?
I started this summer.
In what way(s) have you participated in FIT4MOM (Fit4Baby, Stroller Strides, BodyBack)?
Tell us about your family.
My husband, Alex, and I have been married for 4 years, and we had our 5 month old son, Kyle, this past April.
What is one thing you love about Stroller Strides/Fit4Baby/BodyBack?
That you can bring your baby with you--I wouldn't get a workout in some days otherwise! Also, the community of other moms is amazing. Whether you need advice, support, or just a good chat, this network of mamas is there!
I love ice cream.
What are some things you like to do outside of exercising and being a mom?
I love photography and online scrapbooking. I'm also addicted to books.
What do you do for work or what did you do before baby?
I've worked in education as a second, third, and fourth grade teacher, and most recently, an academic specialist. Now, I stay at home with Kyle and have an online store on a website called TeachersPayTeachers.
Have you played any sports in the past or what sport would you like to learn?
Cross country and track in high school.
What is a piece of advice you can pass on to fellow moms?
I'm a pretty new mama, but I would say, be boundless in play, laughter, and silliness with your child and family.
Thank you for being part of our community, Katie! We appreciate you so much!
