Buffy taught her final scheduled class last Wednesday and it was quite the event! It was classic Buffy -- she triumphed over the crazy wind and led 35+ women in squats, planks, dips, and organized an army crawl race. You haven't lived until you army crawl under 10 moms doing a plank, racing 2 other teams, with 30 push-ups thrown in.
After class, we had a potluck lunch and Buffy shared some of her thoughts about Stroller Strides. For those of you who don't know, Buffy was the original co-owner of SS and has been with the program for the past 7 years. Starting anything new is hard, and those first few years were a labor of love. Buffy has given her heart and soul to Stroller Strides and been a mentor and inspiration for so many moms here in Oahu. She has easily taught over 1,000 Stroller Strides classes, and a peek at her Facebook wall is a testament to how many of us have loved Buffy as our instructor and friend.
Buffy is moving on to new teaching opportunities as her children are older and out of the stroller now. You may still see her as a substitute instructor and she'll certainly be racing around Kapolei most mornings.
Good luck Buffy! We will really miss you.
