Well, Fit Mommy attempts to return! I have to remind my body that it was only a year and a month or two ago that it ran 18 miles. Remember! Remember! Remember! I was panting like a sick dog when we went up a tiny hill near our house. Remember! Remember! I want to get strong enough to easily run a half marathon again. Harry turned six months old last week and is big enough to ride in the Schwinn jogging stroller we have. (By the way, we LOVE this stroller and are heartbroken...okay, just really, really sad...that they discontinued the model. I would recommend this to anyone!)
He had a fabulous time! So did his big sister! She even took a turn pushing him at the end. She was funny about her shoes...usually she likes to wear her "running shoes" when we go running, but this time she chose the little boots because she can put them on by herself.
Jon and I both ran. Kaia rode in the bike stroller that transforms to jogging stroller pretty easily. Here is a picture of her riding it with her cousin. The only down-side is that Harry still isn't big enough for that...it doesn't recline at all, so if we go out, we all have to go out. It was a lot of work to get us all out the door, but we had a great time.
We really want to raise our kids in an active home where exercise is fun. We're hoping that keeping (and getting!) ourselves in shape is a good way to do it. It's working with Kaia, but she is still really young! Luckily, they both seem to enjoy running right now! (And hopefully those last pounds will melt away soon!)
