So, I’m pretty much a runner now.
It all started last Sunday. I promised a couple friends I would go to their fundraiser for the Stafford Animal Shelter. The catch was that it was a 5K run. And I don’t run. Luckily, a gal who I am just getting to know was there–Meggan. We were the only two pushing strollers, so we teamed up and headed for the back of the pack.
My goals were to finish and not be last. I don’t want to spoil the ending, but I did accomplish both of those goals (very slowly).
We had so much fun that we entered another, longer race five days later. The kids were not invited to that one. I think pushing that 80 pounds of stroller was slowing me down.

SO much fun!! Looking forward to our next run – we will have to get that figured out soon:) See you Wednesday for training FUN:)
Super, completely awesome!
My hubby Shawn tells a story about a guy running alongside him in a race once while pushing a stroller. The guy’s baby dropped her stuffed animal, so Shawn retrieved it and gave it back. Then the guy dusted him and faded off into the distance, leaving Shawn with a slightly bruised ego.
In any case, way to go, Supermoms!
Can’t wait, Meggan!
Minor catastrophes– I can assure you that I am not dusting anyone, but I have seen those crazy-fast stroller pushers!
