When I became owner of this franchise back in 2014, classes had been held sporadically at Tysons Corner Center but there was no formal contract in place. After trying to run classes in a park and getting rained out, eaten by bugs, and being run off the trail by bikers, I decided we would try and go back the mall for our Stroller Strides classes.
Honestly, I didn't know how it would go. With my baby on my hip armed with only some gumption and crossed fingers, I asked if we could run Stroller Strides inside the mall during inclement weather and on the plaza during the warm months. Assuming they would say no, I prepared myself. To my surprise and delight, they not only said yes but they welcomed our village with open arms.
Almost all of my favorite moments with our village over the past six years have happened at Tysons Corner Center, so when I decided it was time to take some our programming live after being virtual since mid-March...I knew where I wanted to start.
We are back with our Tyson's friends on July 8th, Mamas. Join me for Stroller Strides. Your village is waiting!
