Where local moms share, learn and grow together.

Even with all my obligations to the team – the traveling, the training, the hard work – my most important job has, and always will be, Mom.

We’re an everyday family in just about every way, and the needs of my daughters don’t change when we’re on the road. Traveling can be tough on kids, so I’m always trying to keep them engaged and energized, whether it’s finding a nearby park or just going for a walk. And even if I’m not able to cook, I still make sure they’re getting the nutrition they need by planning meals out as far ahead of time as possible. Believe me, when you’re rushing like crazy without a second to lose, that little bit of preparation goes a long way.

Like exercise and nutrition, sleep is another priority that I’m especially conscious of, particularly on the road. One of the most important parts of my job as a mom is to make sure they’re in bed on time and well rested for the next day – and whatever craziness may lie ahead.

At the end of the day, when the door closes and it’s just us – whether we’re at home or in a hotel room – we’re on this journey together, doing it as a family.
