Sister Spotlight:: Christie O! | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


Straight from Roo:

I was floored when I saw I was picked for the Sister Spotlight. I’ve been around the hood here for a while and there are so many sisters that have been inspirational, helpful and motivational to me. I truly love them all. They may be my online friends but I call them my in-real-life friends too. Since I have to pick just one (I’d rather give you a bullet-list of all my Sisters that I adore and why) I’m going to share Christie O. with you.

The brains (and beauty!) behind Average Moms Wear Capes, Christie continues to inspire me and encourage me. She is always there to answer my questions. Her before reminds me so much of me; but where I am still at that before – can I really do it this time? – stage, Christie went from stay-at-home mom up to her elbows in kids and the stressors that come with that and took the time to push herself beyond her expectations and has truly found herself. She started with the Couch-to-5K program and went from there…triathlons…at least 1 half-marathon (there may have been more)…ran for 10 hours on a treadmill in a mall to raise money for LLS and Team Shrinking Jeans…Miami Iron Man last November…and first full marathon at Disney in January where I was there to see her cross the finish line. (What an awesome experience for me to just be there!) As if that isn’t enough, she’s also a strong supporter of the March of Dimes raising money for preemies. Her first little one was born 6 weeks early and she has taken that experience and now provides support for other moms of preemies. She is really a strong, amazing woman that I am so proud to call my friend. She probably doesn’t know it, but she really is my hero. I wanna be like her when I grow up.

You know what? Christie is my hero, too. She is simply amazing! Congrats, Christie! We are changing things up for the Sister Spotlight, so I will be emailing you soon! Stay tuned!
