to my treadmill again. This morning I got to combine my two biggest hobbies together: running and staring at Brooke for long periods of time without blinking.
There is the greatest running group that meets up a few times a week and today I decided to join. My friend let me borrow her jogging stroller that has an attachment for the carseat (ours doesn’t) and so I finally got my first run with Brooke outside. Add in the fact that I got to talk with friends the whole run and I was wearing new shoes and it couldn’t have gotten any better.
Brooke loved it (I think at least) and was staring around at everything we passed by for a while until she fell asleep. HOLY COW… running with a jogging stroller is TOUGH. Is it weird that my core is sore from pushing the stroller? Hills have a whole new meaning with a jogging stroller but I am excited to do this more often because:
1. The treadmill is the most boring thing in the world compared to my run this morning.
2. Brooke loves being outside and spending quality time with me which she will always enjoy doing even when she is a teenager and she will still want to go everywhere with me like she does now (I think if I say this enough times that it will actually come true).
3. Running with a jogging stroller will make me a faster and stronger runner come race time.
The group post run ritual will most definitely keep me coming back for more. They have a whole fridge full of cold delicious drinks and she has snack bags with my FAVORITE CIRCUS ANIMAL COOKIES for the kids (errr….me and one other girl that loves sweets as much as I do) and we all sat on the couch and talked for a while.
My Brooks PureDrifts felt incredible. They are so lightweight and felt like they were molded for my feet. I will do a full review when I get more miles in them.
Yes, I do have to put Brooke in all of my photos.
The omelet obsession is back in full force except for once again it didn’t turn out looking like an omelet and so I am not going to do a close-up. For the record you cannot eat eggs without ketchup.
I have a girls night tonight (good thing because Billy is BUSYman.com and always has school stuff now) and I am making an apple pie? Why did I choose to make something that I have never made before?
Have you ever ran with a jogging stroller? Double jogging stroller? Do you enjoy running with a jogging stroller?
How would you rate your last run on a scale of 1-10… not on how you felt but all of the outside factors (temperature, gear, friends, boredom etc).
Have you ever tried out a lightweight shoe? Are lightweight shoes for you?
Ketchup and eggs: Delicious or disgusting?
