And we had a 4 mile run to finish on Saturday....and it was so enjoyable in the gorgeous weather. Zoe Jane did great. And we love our "new" jogging stroller. We bought it off Craig's List a couple weeks ago. I don't know if I will ever be able to justify buying big items for retail prices again. The jogging stroller needed one minor repair and a good cleaning and we are good to go. $40! You can't beat that!
Running has been going great! It has been hard getting back into a rhythm, especially since I am carrying weight still from the pregnancy, but it feels so good when I get done with a run. And I can already see changes in my body after a week. So encouraging. Zach has been doing amazing also. He is such a great runner. I must admit...I was worried that him wanting to run would only last a week...but he is really enjoying it. He even made a comment to me that he wanted to run on our off day this past weekend because the weather was so great! It makes me so happy that he is wanting to exercise. It is very important to me that we raise Zoe to be active, to enjoy playing outside, riding bikes, swimming, running....I don't want her to beg to watch television or to be upset when I say we are going to the park. I want her to love these activities and I think the best way to teach her this is by starting young and showing her through my actions!
Only 9 more weeks to the race!
