As a mother of three daughters, it's truly amazing that Kirsten Walker finds time to live out a healthy lifestyle. In addition to the constant business of mothering, Kirsten is the wife of a military husband and is often times parenting alone for stretches as a time. In spite of this, she made a commitment to begin working out regularly whether bright and early before the sun comes up or late at night when all else are sleeping. From completing Grandma's Half Marathon and the MS 150 mile bike ride to participating in activities with her kids, it seems as though Kirsten is always on the move. Remaining active with her family is important as she enjoys coaching her daughters and alpine skiing with the family. In regard to other aspects of wellness, Kirsten tends to a small garden with her family and promotes the importance of a healthy, well-balanced diet. Having high energy, feeling good in general, and being a role model to her children help to keep Kirsten motivated on a daily basis.
