friends and first stroller run

Saturday I was supposed to run the Nutri-Run 20K in Fort Wayne with Kimberly.  Because March has been a hard running month for me between my knees and a stomach bug, I just met up with Kimberly post-race for fro-yo and baby sharing.


I can’t say I was sad I missed the race considering it was sleeting and super windy, but I am super proud of Kimberly for running it and having an awesome time.  She’s amazing and I love sharing life with her – talking about our toddler boys, running, and just “getting” each other.

Speaking of friends who “get” you, Sunday we got to have breakfast with our good friends Joel and Rachel. It was a bit of controlled chaos, with two carseats and three booster seats between us as we navigated eggs and conversation (plus one diaper issue and a spilled drink) but it was so good to see them face to face and catch up a little!

Sunday it was gloriously sunny and warm out, so it was time for Kate’s first stroller run!



I’ve run 5 times in the month of March, so the run was a little painful, but it did feel really good to get out.  I managed 4 miles while my little beauty snoozed in front of me.  Talk about a supercute view!

It was also my first run with my Garmin Forerunner 10 – a Christmas present from Dave that I’ve been really excited to try out, but it’s been too cold to get outside with it!  I love the watch and it’s super simple, which is perfect.  I’m looking forward to a lot more runs with it!

  1. Aww, that is fun that Kate faces you in the stroller so you can see her while you run! 🙂 I am happy you got out. I hope you feel better soon so you can start running as much as you’d like! 🙂

  2. You are amazing! And you are lucky that this was baby sharing and not baby stealing. Note: I’ve tried to re-create Kate’s “call” but have yet to do it accurately. I’m sad about that.

    You both look so super cute in those stroller run photos. We need to schedule a run soon!

    P.S. I triple heart you.

  3. I would definitely enjoy a run better with that super cute view in front of me. Glad you finally were able to get out with her!
