This week was a great one here! On Saturday, my friend Heather and I went out for a 6 mile run. Nothing exciting happened, and the miles flew by while we talked. That always makes for a great run!

Sadly, my running group is disbanding in January. Yes, this is the SAME running group I joined when I began running 7 years ago. It will definitely be bittersweet to say goodbye. 

I've heard talk of plans for other groups forming, so we will see what happens! Heather and I pretty much know the routes well and we know the water stops around town so I think we will be's just sad to see our group leave and have to say goodbye.

Brayden's 6 month appt with his pedi was on Monday and he was given the green light to ride along in the BOB while we go for a run! This made things MUCH easier as far as adapting to my husband's work schedule and afternoon runs.

It was super easy to put together, too...I'll share more about my thoughts on the BOB in a blog post next week.

I wasn't sure what Brayden would think of the stroller, but he loved it and the gentle rocking motion helped him fall right asleep! Win win!

I went out for another run with him last night - this time for a legit, real run to see how he handled the BOB.

We made three miles which was awesome - in the walking stroller, 2 miles was usually his limit.

I'm definitely looking forward to more training runs with Brayden now that we can be more flexible with the jogging stroller!

This weekend, I have a 12 mile run on the schedule (eek)! We are also going to take Brayden to the local pumpkin patch for pictures! I can't wait!! :)

Have a fabulous weekend! What are your weekend plans? Anyone running a race? If so, where?


  1. I'm sad for you that your running group is disbanding! I learned a lot from your group (and even used some fun ideas for my running group); even though you and your friend know the routes, it's always nice to have a bigger group of people to start out with on a long run. It'll be interesting to see what new groups come out of this, and who will take responsibility for setting out water, etc.

    1. You have no idea how sad this makes me!! :( I am interested to see what comes of it as well. You're exactly right, even though we know the routes it's still nice to have that core group of runners to meet up with. Sad times.

  2. Glad to hear that BOB running is going well so far. We absolutely love our BOB and I have no idea what I'd do without it!

  3. Aww sorry to hear bout your running group. No running here, still trying to heal the hematoma!
