Vacation and back to school

IMG_3615

Zain is back in preschool so that means I have a tiny bit more time to actually blog.  This summer really flew by.  We wrapped up our summer with a trip to St. Thomas.  We weren’t planning on going on vacation this summer because it was hard to squeeze one in with my husband’s grad [...]

Racking up the double stroller miles

Screen Shot 2013-06-18 at 1.25.38 PM

I just posted last week about my introduction to double stroller running and how it hasn’t been easy. Since I know it’s not easy, you’d think I would plan better than to do a silly thing like go for a 10 mile run with that beast. Not so much. My husband and I planned to [...]

Double Stroller Running

I love the look of joy on his face on the swing

You may remember from my previous stroller running posts that I am quite a stickler for the rule of waiting until baby is 6 months old to take them out on a run in the jogging stroller.  I had planned to wait until Ezra was 6 months old to run with him, but one day [...]

“Race” Recap: Turkey Trot 5K & Shower Pill Review

I ran a (very slow) 5K at 33 weeks pregnant

When we arrived at the starting area, I was really impressed [...]

Ready to race!

I’m going Turkey Trotting tomorrow.  I’m obviously aiming to smash my 5K PR since I’m clearly in top running shape right now. Just kidding.  I’m just hoping to not finish the race in last place.  Our neighborhood is hosting an informal Turkey Trot 5K for the second year in a row.  Last year, it was [...]

15 miles and a stroller

My view for 15 miles

Saturday morning, I was all dressed and set to head out the door for my 15 mile run.  While chatting with hubby, he suggested that maybe I could wait until Sunday for my long run and run with him.  I knew 15 miles with the stroller would be tough, but our training schedules (he’s training [...]

Another one of those runs

My week started off with a fantastic run on Monday.  Wednesday’s run was less than stellar.  I did a short 3 mile run with Zain in the stroller that might as well have been a 20 mile run because I struggled for every mile. Yesterday, I had another awesome run to balance it out.  I [...]
