Lightening the Load

Hurray, baby girl now has enough head control to ride in the jogging stroller without the car seat. With the car seat gone, the stroller feels considerably lighter to push and is noticeably less top-heavy.

More importantly, she seemed to really like riding down there. She was wide awake for our 30 min run today and I didn't hear a sound from her. She just relaxed and took in the scenery. Running just got a lot more fun for both of us!

Freeze Your Thorns of Virtual 5K Race Report

Happy After the Run

I have been relaxing and enjoying the holidays the last few weeks, only running once or twice per week and doing some cross training. Now, though, it's time to get back into the swing of things w/ running and what better way to kick it off then a virtual 5k, hosted by the Boring Runner?

DH is out of town so for the run today it was me and baby girl. We aren't exactly in the freezing temperatures here in LA - 58 deg. I figure this worked in favor of the baby, however, who wouldn't be warming up from the run.

With the jogging stroller I'm hardly a speed demon (I'm hardly a speed demon anyway!). We rolled in at 31:30 for the 5k. The best part of the 'race' was the little snoozer I had waiting for me when I arrived home.
