Anu grew up in a small city in central Virginia where she spent many summers bike riding with friends. Although sports were not a big part of Anu's life while in middle and high school, exercise became very important after sustaining a broken ankle in college. After her ankle healed, she was determined to become stronger and more stable. Over the years following college, Anu did a mix of exercise including running, spinning, and weight training. However, exercise took a back seat with a hectic career in Washington D.C. When her husband's job brought them to Ann Arbor, Anu was 7 months pregnant with their first child. Without a social network to lean on, Anu found the community she was looking for when she heard about Stroller Strides from another mom she met in a breastfeeding group. "It was the motivation I needed to get moving. I found a group of supportive mothers who knew exactly what I was going through. Not only did Stroller Strides meet my emotional needs, but it addressed the physical as well. Most importantly, it has given my children a community, one that has become central in their lives."
Anu lives in Ann Arbor with her husband, her 3 1/2 year old son, 1 year old daughter and 8 year old dog, Taj.
