"Part of the reason I joined JWS way back in the Winter of 2013 was because I had just had my first child, pictured, Juliana Grace.
I was lost. I was 270lbs, coming off of a painful 2 year struggle with infertility and subsequent marital problems. I joined JWS because I wanted to be strong and confident and healthy. I wanted my daughter and any other children I had to look up at me and say wow, my mom is tough stuff!
Since I joined, I can't even count the miles I've run, the friends I've made, and the confidence I've gained. I think I may actually feel like a little bit of a bad ass.
Here's a picture of this morning. Not-so-baby Juliana Grace's first official race with Mommy. It was the proudest 28-minute mile I've ever run."

At the heart of Jersey Women Strong is our commitment to “giving back” to the community, changing lives one step at time. Being an all women’s team, we are particularly focused on supporting local charitable organizations that aid and empower women. Over the past several years, we have raised thousands of dollars for partners such as Center for Hope and Safety (formerly Shelter Our Sisters), YWCA Bergen County’s healingSpace, and Oasis: A Haven for Women and Children. Additionally, the team has organized and hosted various fundraisers to support local families in need. This type of collaboration builds a bond between team members and a purpose that goes well beyond health and fitness.
