Friday Free-For-All – 08/17/18

Friday Free-For-All

Ben’s birthday is tomorrow! He will be turning the big 3-0, and we’re having a BBQ to celebrate. It will be the first gathering we’ve hosted at our house since Vera was born, and I’m very much looking forward to it.

My sister in law Emily is coming home from Prague today for a three week visit. We’re very happy her visit coincides with Ben’s birthday. It will also be the first time she has seen Vera, which will be lots of fun.

Even though I haven’t been cleared to run yet, I have cleaned up our second hand jogging stroller. My old coworker gave it to me before I left work. She got it second-hand from a friend, and very fortuitously, it fits the carseat/travel system we got for Vera. This means that I can start using it for walks immediately, and start running with it as soon as I’m healed up and Vera’s pediatrician gives us the go-ahead. I’m VERY excited, and waiting VERY impatiently.


Soon, my beauty. Soon.

I signed up for my first postpartum race! I will be posting a bit more about this next week, but I’m just so excited that I had to tell you now. Stay tuned!

Any stroller running tips for me?

    fortuitously -> vocab word of the day!! Love it! I have no tips, but yesterday at the park I saw a mama jogging with a twin stroller (2-year old twins inside) and a baby carriage on the top rack! #mindblown I told her maybe she should get a dog too… hahahahaha Have a fun weekend! Happy B-day to your baby daddy :-p

    Tip: run with Ben and make him push! 😉, avoid uphills, lock the front wheel (if you can), have fun!

    It’s not so bad…it definitely makes you look more hardcore than it’s required to be.

      Haha, Ben isn’t much of a runner, so I think that option is out! Thankfully, the rail trail is mostly flat, so I don’t need to worry about hills.
