Day 3: 2.5 mile run. With Stroller.

Today is Day 3 and I had to complete a 2.5 mile run. The sun is shining and it’s about 25 Celsius out – great weather for a quick run. I decided it would be fun to take F with me, so I popped him in the stroller and off we went through the neighbourhood. It’s been a while since I had him in there and forgot how heavy 27 lbs is, but we survived! And with a time of 24:26, we made it back home in time for lunch.

I just finished some quick stretching and my legs aren’t feeling as stiff as they were this morning – I’m also in the process of assembling a pretty mean salad to serve as my post-run snack (eggs, green pepper, onion, almonds and cheese; carrot sticks too!)

Does anyone else out there run with a stroller? Any tips for sidewalk-lips? Maybe it’s just Calgary, but the lips are like little cliffs – really brutal with a stroller. I do find popping the stroller back and rolling down on the two back wheels makes it easier, but my little passenger gets a pretty good jolt every time (though he thinks it’s funny.)

Survived another day. Now off to the park to enjoy the sunshine!
