I miss my running buddy Sarah, SO SO much! We would save all of our stories for our long runs so we could keep each other entertained. She would even bring a cooler with water and gatorade for our drink stops. She was wonderful and I miss our half marathon rendezvous in fun cities. Maybe after baby 'W' arrives we will reunite for some long runs!
Speaking of running....I've got a new running buddy! Jude biked 3.7 miles with me today while I ran. I was so proud of him! He was so excited and red-faced and just such a cute little kidlet! I don't know what I'm going to do without him for 2-1/2 hours each day in the fall.
Rhett enjoyed his time dousing himself with water from my water bottle the entire time! This little j-bird took a run of his own later on...
I am so thankful my kids have always liked going on runs with me. Sometimes Jude asks if we can go for a run. It's a daily routine during the week and has been for his entire life. I think he also enjoys the snacks and drinks he gets during our runs!
I'm especially thankful for B.O.B.! My B.O.B. stroller has given me SO much freedom to run. I recommend it to anyone who plans to run frequently with kids in tow. It's definitely not necessary and a bit pricey for someone just looking to walk or for regular stroller needs (the $100 joggers from babies r us are perfectly suitable for this), but as a runner it's worth the bucks! It folds up relatively compact and will fit in the trunk of our sedan (we have the double). It is lightweight and the front wheel swivel is smooth and it turns on a dime. I use mine 5 days a week in running weather and the fabric and tires still look like new (over a year and a half old). I also recommend the KoolStop runner if you don't plan to travel with your stroller, but it is not a good one for transport (hard to disassemble and BIG wheels...hence the smoothness). It is probably the smoothest stroller I have EVER used! You can trust me, I have owned nearly every stroller known to man:)! Bobby is a keeper!
