What do I do if there is no Stroller Warriors chapter?!?! For me, this is difficult to imagine, but it happens. At times, we find ourselves completely separated from what we know as normal life. I am in this situation now, and I dearly miss my people. However, there are ways to cope.
Secondly, wear your gear. Just like our children have their favorite lovey, we have our things to bring comfort and motivation. If you dress the part, you are more likely to get out and go for a run, and you may even meet other SWs that you never knew existed. I’ve made several friends and acquaintances over time because I recognized their race shirt or they had SW gear on.
Here’s another grand idea should you find yourself Stroller Warrior-less. If you are looking for an opportunity to volunteer and create a community for other military spouses in your shoes, you can send in an application to coordinate a new SW chapter!

Last of all, meet more people. Running clubs exist EVERYWHERE, every state, every country. Google or check out the running store to find out. Odds are that running club is also a positive, encouraging group of all-star awesomeness.
