She's back!

Yes folks, yesterday was a monumental one: I started running again! My gracious father in law ordered us a jogging stroller that is compatible with Els' car seat and we are in business. I know now that it's going to be a long road literally and figuratively because I haven't run since I was 22 weeks pregnant, but I'm more motivated than ever to make this work. So, maybe it will be run/walk for a while, but I'm cool with that. I have some encouraging running friends here and the goal of a half marathon by the end of the year.

Running, like parenting, would not be half as worth it if it were easy.

what kind of jogging stroller is it? we love our single babytrend one that works with our carseat. even better is our double chariot stroller that can also hook up behind the bike. congratulations! it feels so good to do normal things like that with your little munchkin.
