hitting the pavement

Yes folks, I will be hitting the pavement to get in shape for the summer! I just purchased my BabyJogger Summit 360 and have taken it out for two runs so far.  It's sweet.  Now...if only I could run longer than 5 minutes before stopping! All my mommy friends are pretty serious runners so I figured I needed to step it up in this department.  Who knows, I might even sign up for a race!

You should do the Chicago half with us in September!! You have plenty of time to train and it will be a fun girls with babies weekend!! I hope you will consider it. Good luck and keep us updated on your running adventures.

P.S. Research shows you get a 30% better/harder work out pushing a stroller!

Wow that sounds fun! Are yall going to push the babies in strollers?

THE DARLSON'S said...

No, no strollers. 13.1 miles is too long to push a stroller and too long for the babies to sit in the strollers. We are having my friend Claire & Celia's sisters watch them. Claire's sister is 36 and Celia's sisters are 23 & 25. They all three live in the city so we have free babysitters! You could always bring your Mom, Linds or a friend to watch Parks while you run if you don't want the sisters to do it. It would be great to have you and Parks! t If you join then it would be 4 Mommies and our friend Nicki. It's September 12th I think I'll have to double check though.
