Ashley Mozingo

Hi everyone! My name is Ashley, and I am a stay at home mom to two girls, Paislee, 3 and Keely, 1. My husband is in the Coast Guard, and is currently stationed at a Coast Guard unit on Camp Lejune. We have been married for five years now and have spent two of those years in Alaska, where Paislee was born, and two in Maine, where we had Keely. We were lucky to get stationed here in 2012, and call North Carolina "home". We were both born and raised in different cities in eastern North Carolina, and we are super excited to get to spend some time here with our girls and introduce them to some of our favorite places that we had as children. Before I met my husband, I attended East Carolina University, where I earned my Bachelors Degree in Communications. I have a love for writing, and a huge passion for being a mom, so I am thrilled to have the opportunity to write about my experiences and exciting moments of this rocky ride that we all call 'Motherhood'.

The back of our Stroller Warriors shirts

As most of you know, I’m a part of a running group here in Jacksonville called Stroller Warriors. Stephanie Geraghty, the creator of Stroller Warriors has always dreamed of us being more than just a free running club. She has always wanted to help support a charity and raise money for a good cause. She has found a cause for 2010 that hits close to home for many of us Military women.

Nicki Bunting welcomed her husband, Captain Brian “Bubba” Bunting home for their two week R&R (Rest and Relaxation) after 6 months of deployment and then had to watch …

Stroller Warriors

Nora is ready for a run! No, she's not trying to get out. She waving "Hi!"

Nora is ready for a run! No, she's not trying to get out. She's waving "Hi!"

When I lived in DC I always wanted to be a part of a running group. I had heard from friends that running groups were the way to go. You make friends, and improve your running and health all at the same time.

I thought after having Nora that I would never be able to achieve my goal of being in a running group. I had never seen a running group –all pushing baby strollers. When Stephanie …
