This weekend K, Baby J and I clocked our longest run to date with the double stroller - just over 5 km, whoop! This may not seem very far or like a very big deal to all the 100 km-a-week running machines out there, but trust me, for this mom-with-a-mental-block it's huge. And every single time I venture out for a run with both kids I return wondering why on earth I was so hesitant to do so in the first place - the three of us have only had awesome runs together. Not even once had there been crying, meltdowns or even feeding breaks... So relax a little, why don't you, Mama?! It's definitely time for that mental block to go.
I'm so thrilled that we've now reached a distance that will allow the three of us to race together or do parkruns together - come on, Summer! (Not that I'm anywhere near clocking a good 5 km time with the fully loaded double stroller - yikes, it's heavy...! But it will definitely be loads of fun.)
I'm also thrilled that both kids enjoy the stroller and running - especially K is so excited about the fact that her brother is now joining us on our runs more often. I love how she holds his hand and talks to him during our runs: "Look, Brother Bear, there's M (our nanny)'s bus!"; and "We're going back home now, Brother Bear!" when we reach our turning point to head back home. Ahhhhh, I just love them to bits.
Have a blessed, healthy week, everyone!
