Motherhood can be pretty isolating. Making it my mission to get out and meet people has been great for us. We are finally getting into a nice routine: going on walks, taking a music class, and meeting with a play group. But now it’s time to do something for myself. I really want to get back to having solid healthy habits and be a good example for the little guy.
When I found out I was pregnant I was three months into training for a half marathon. My legs had started feeling like I was carrying cement blocks. Unfortunately I wasn’t one of the lucky women who can run while pregnant. My body and mind weren’t into it.
Fast forward to now and I’ve been craving to hit the pavement again. I watch people running and wished I was moving my body more. I think that stems from my old days as a gym rat and runner.
And when I say run, I mean run/walk. I practiced the Gallaway method and never thought to change it. But now that I want to get back into running I’d love to complete a race and run the whole thing. It’s a small (hmm…not really) goal in the bucket list that needs doing. So when I saw a baby jogger for sale in the local classifieds I knew it would be perfect to take the little dude out and not worry about having to run while my husband was still home (a 6AM run,no thanks).
I would have loved to have sewn up some new running gear but come on…it wasn’t going to happen. I caught a sale and bought a few pieces that will help get me started. Once Ollie is sturdy enough to sit in the jogger, away we go. He’s really close, too. He’s been sitting but still wobbles a bit. I bet he’ll be sitting well in a couple of weeks.
Now all I need is to find a 5K to train for in the fall. And this cuteness here*.
*Gotta wonder…Can I make this?
