Embracing The Changes In Life

Image
Someone recently asked me about my running and how I currently feel about it. True, I'm not running 5 days per week as I have in the past. I'm not even running my usual 3. I think my new norm for awhile (maybe forever) might be 2 days a week.

How do I feel about it? I feel liberated. I feel like stepping outside of the model of runner to something bigger. Because I've said it before, and I will say it again, I am more than just a runner.
As I grow older with my family, I realize that life is constantly changing. I am constantly changing. And learning to embrace the change definitely makes for an easier transition. For probably the first time in my life, I am

Jogging Strollers Freedom And Fresh Air

Full Disclosure: I have partnered with Thule to #giveaway a Thule jogging stroller, but I have not been compensated in any form. 

I remember when Lil Man was a baby. My only time to get in a workout was before Hubby went to work. Which meant I had to run at 5am or 6am after being up most of the night with Lil Man. You guessed it, those early morning runs just didn't happen most days. I tried. I really did, but I was exhausted.

Yes, I have a treadmill which helped. But it didn't give me the freedom (or the fresh air) that my jogging stroller did.

Pushing the stroller was hard. It became a challenge that I looked forward to overcoming. And on those days that running just wasn't going to happen, walking could. So I did.

I could take Lil Man out at any time and get some exercise and fresh air. Sometimes it was all we needed to change both of our moods.

He loved it. He still does. Even at 4 (he barely fits), we still run together. When Hubby is out of town, and my basement treadmill seems more dread than fun, Lil Man and I will take the jogger out. (Thule Urban Glide - Bringing Smiles Mile By Mile)


He's a great motivator. "Why are you walking? Go faster!" I love that I have been able to set an example for him with exercise. To him, it's just a normal daily part of our life. We run in all types of weather - yes - even in the Winter. Check out my Winter Running Tips.

But the jogging stroller has brought me so much more. Because of it, we've been able to explore our world together - a flock of birds - a corn field - an animal in the distance - cool clouds - the sun. You name it. We couldn't have experienced those things together if we'd gone to the gym, or stayed home and I'd run on the treadmill.

Don't get me wrong. I run on my treadmill, and Lil Man and I are regulars at the gym. But the jogging stroller opened our world, and I am forever thankful for that bond that he and I have created because of it.

And I would like to give one of you the opportunity to enjoy the freedom of exercising with a jogging stroller. I am partnering with Thule in giving away an Urban Glide or Urban Glide 2 Jogging Stroller. I am beyond excited to have the opportunity to give one of you a stroller. 

Please enter the giveaway tools below. And if you know of anyone you think that might would benefit from having a stroller, PLEASE pass this blog link on to them.

  2. I've been jogging with my big hard wheeled stroller but I'm guessing that Thule would be super smooth!

  3. I have my Uppababy Vista that I take on runs with my son but I can imagine taking an actual jogging stroller would totally change the game. Running with him adds about 2 minutes to my average pace. I'm open to any solution! :)

  4. Running with a stroller slows me down about 2 minutes also.. but this one is super light and made a big difference over a heavier one

  5. I stay active by taking my dog for walks and runs. I am currently pregnant with baby number 1, and this would be a fantastic jogger to have so that all three of us can run together! :)

  16. Killer giveaway! I don't have kiddos, so I'll save the entries to someone who does - but I will say how amazing I always am and moms and dads running with strollers. I have enough time running with just my own bodyweight! Kudos to all of you fit parents!

  21. I'm way beyond needing a jogging stroller, but my now 14 year old used to nap in the stroller most days. Some days that meant a super long run or walk LOL.

  25. what an awesome giveaway! I want to have a jogging stroller when I have kids though I always wonder how moms do it. It seems like it would make running SO much harder lol.

  26. A stroller like this would be great for walking around my neighborhood. We have lots of big old trees that make the sidewalks really uneven. My baby jogger doesn't quite get over the humps and bumps with ease.

  27. Cute blog! I love having the whole family go on our evening walks.

  32. The reality is the actual growing popularity of jogging strollers in Canada and even around the globe is great proof that it is certainly an important type of equipment to families.
