Turkey Trot 5K race recap and the Winter 100 Challenge

IMG_7841

Last week, we ran the informal Turkey Trot 5K in our neighborhood on Thanksgiving morning.  It’s not an official race, but it has become a fun neighborhood tradition over the past few years.  Last year, I “ran” the race while 30-something weeks pregnant and it took me about 37 minutes.  Not terrible considering that I [...]

What I love lately

It even works with Ezra's sunshade mostly down. The kid freaks out if the sun gets in his eyes even for a second.

I used to do posts on Fridays about my favorite things, but that was like 2 years ago.  Time to start sharing some of my current faves. These guys.  Obviously. “Ezra, let me see your teeth.”   The weather shield for my BOB Duallie.  I loved using the weather shield on my single BOB back [...]

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 [...]

Why you need a jogging stroller (and how to pick one)

This is my favorite view when I run

As a stay at home mom/running mom, there are 2 very important pieces of equipment that I need to keep running: my jogging stroller and my treadmill.  If you’re better than me, then all you need is an alarm clock to wake up and get moving before your kids and spouse wake up.  For me, [...]
