As I have mentioned, once or twice, or a thousand times, I fell in love with running between Sue and Patrice’s births. And while expecting Patrice, I was worried I wouldn’t get one-on-one time with the new baby. I began yearning for a jogging stroller. But have your priced those puppies? Wowzers. Definitely something to register for when you are having your first baby so either a group can go in on it or over excited grandparents can invest in it for you.
I did not have such option. So I began searching for used. And found a great one. Then I wondered if I would get my use out of it. Sure, I could now take Patrice with me, but I still had those two other little girls… Well, if I haven’t mentioned it, my hubby rocks. He often sends me out for a run. The first time I headed out with Patrice in the stroller, I was pretty sure this was NOT going to work. I made it maybe a mile. And I was toast.
But I have kept at it. And can now do three miles with her in there. And as bumpy as it is, she almost always falls asleep. Lately, life has been really busy. Patrice and I have not gotten out there. But tonight, I was determined. So while the aforementioned wonderful hubby did bedtime routine with the other two, she and I literally snuck out.
It has been 10 days since we last ran, so we weren’t after distance, we probably did 2 miles, and some of those inches hurt! But we did it. And we feel great.
I am so thankful for my running, my husband who supports it so much, and the time to be with my little Patrice.Survive til you Thrive!
