Meet our mama of the month of March, Eva Tallmadge! Eva has been a member of Stroller Strides for almost two years. Eva and her now oldest son, Owen, joined Our Village as one of the original members from our Lake Forest Park Grand Opening! Eva has since served on the FIT4MOM Edmonds leadership team and is currently on maternity leave, having recently given birth to Owen's little brother, Oliver. We are so lucky to have Eva and her boys in Our Village!

Favorite thing about FIT4MOM: Getting a great workout while meeting wonderful, inspiring, strong Mamas, which is basically everyone - the fact that you can get yourself together, and your kid(s), get out the door and go work out is incredible. Whether you do one burpee or one hundred, everyone should feel proud of themselves for showing up.
