For the past 15 years I have ran three days a week (with a break for pregnancy). It’s the best way I have found to relax and as a doc, I’m of course obsessed with the health benefits. Usually the little one and I run by ourselves, but on this particular day the hubby joined us. Since I run so slow he jogged along with the camera and took pictures. Oddly enough, this was the first time I have had pictures taken of me running since high school, which is odd because it’s such a big part of my life. I didn’t know if I would be able to continue running, once I became a mom. Running with a stroller seemed like such a daunting task and honestly it took some time to get used to, but I am glad I stuck with it. Now, I have a constant running buddy who points out all the exciting moments, like a bunny passing by with great enthusiasm and claps as he says “DONE!” at the end of the run. I feel like I’m not only keeping myself healthy for my family, but that I’m teaching the little one that exercise is an important part of life.
On a side note: if you are looking for a running stroller, I would highly recommend the BOB. It literally glides along the running path with basically no effort and is extra spacious. The only down-side is that it’s heavy, but that just means you get an arm work-out too.
