Drop Off, Dash Off!

20110824-095758.jpg

The start of school means I get the opportunity to run again with my son, Joel. After I drop off Aleyah at school on Mondays and Wednesdays (when Daddy takes Anna to preschool), I park the car, unload the jogging stroller, strap in the boy, and dash off on our 2-3 mile run! We really enjoy our runs together, and I must say this was one of the main things I looked forward to as the new school year began. If I were a poet, I would write a sonnet to my jogging stroller.  🙂

My philosophy when it comes to exercising is ‘Do what you can, when you can.’ My marathon training requires 6 mile runs on some mornings. I have found that it sometimes works best for the family if I do 3 miles before they rise, and finish it with Joel when the girls are in school. So find a slot of time in your schedule, and get moving! It may take a bit of planning, but you won’t regret it and will feel better for doing it.

If you are looking for a great jogging stroller, this Expedition stroller has seen many, many miles over the last 6+ years! I have never had any problems with it, and it still has a lot of life left in it. When looking for a jogging stroller, remember that the front wheel does NOT turn. If you find a 3-wheeled stroller that has a movable front wheel, it is not for running. Take a look down the aisle and find the right one.
