Run Mommy, Run!

Isn't this stroller a beauty?

We have the same model, except ours is navy blue. Instead of having several different types of strollers, we opted to buy just one. We use it as our everyday stroller, because we bought the car seat adapter too. It's perfect for the infant seat, for jogging, and, just as an umbrella stroller. It is, in my opinion, the best jogging stroller available. If you are interested, go here, for more about the B.O.B stroller. Luckily, because of my job, we were able to buy the stroller at cost. But, be weary, they are expensive. However, if you are a runner, and want to take your tyke with you, it is important to find one that is safe. I have heard too many horror stories of cheaper versions. It's like buying a car... you need to make a safe investment.

Besides, how can we not have a B.O.B stroller? ha ha!

On Monday night, I joined some other mom's in my neighborhood for a night run. It was great! We all became connected through the Mommy Network in my neighborhood. Here's what the group is all about:

"We are a group of fun-loving Moms who live in Ross Bridge in Hoover, AL. If you and your kids are looking for friendship and a fun time, then this is the group for you. Our kids like to play hard and so do their parents."

Anyhow, it felt great to get a run in with some women who are in the same boat as me. We are all either new to running, or getting back into it after having a baby. I think we ran 2-3 miles, but I'm not sure. We are planning on meeting 2-3 times a week. Bob and I have also gone a couple of times. It is so fun to do our family runs! We take Bobby and Winston. Luckily, Bob pushes the stroller. It is tough with some of the hills in our neighborhood. I miss the flat surface in Florida.

I'll keep you posted on my progress. I'm hoping to do an 8k in September! Yikes!

I am 44 points from getting a free BOB from work! Hopefully, we'll have ours later this fall or early spring. It will be fun to go running with our boys!

you made the right choice...when my daughter was born we bought the bugaboo frog, then the bugaboo bee for travel and finally i got the BOB and use it for running...i should have just purchased the BOB
