So, yesterday we ran. Er, I ran and Beck turned around frequently to see what all the huffing and puffing was about. Not that I was having any difficulty catching my breath or anything. I just felt like my lungs were going to explode out of my chest or suddenly come out my mouth at any moment during the seven tenths of a mile that I actually jogged. Others may deem this pathetic, I deem it blog worthy. Because, you know, when I wasn't narrating our trip, discussing the yellow school bus or the big tractor, I was writing this post in my head. Guilty as charged.

And, though I wasn't paid to endorse this product, I do think it's necessary to note how much I love this stroller. It's an InSTEP Safari Jogging Stroller. I heart it. I have used many jogging strollers throughout the years as a nanny, and I can honestly say this is the best running stroller I have ever used. I usually find them difficult to navigate around corners, but this one steers so easily and I can actually run along side it (holding on, of course!) with ease. And, since I'm tall (5'10") the fact that it has an adjustable handle is key to making my run/walk enjoyable and I don't feel like I'm bending over while exercising.
Plus, it has loads of storage (even a Velcro pocket) that's ideal for ensuring that my cell phone, water bottle, a spare paci all stay put during our run. It's roomy and too cute to boot, too (ours is brown and blue with orange piping). It also has a swivel front wheel that can be locked when you're running to ensure stability. Thus, it's perfect for taking to the zoo or park or even the grocery store. Also, it's under $130 and comes with an adapter so that you can put an infant seat on it (BONUS!). I just can't say enough good things about it. If you're in the market, you should check it out :)

Well, unless I want to wear a pair of Spanx with my bathing suit this summer, I need to get ready for Day 2 of running away from my winter weight! Ha :) Happy Wednesday!
