I BOUGHT A JOGGER!!!! It will arrive today! I am SO excited and proud of myself for finally taking the plunge.  Tonight we are going to go on a family evening run together. Jason and I used to do that from time to time when we lived downtown. Until our car was broken into during a run. Then Jason had little interest in going. We moved out here a few months later after finding out we were pregnant. Shortly after we moved here I stopped running because Jack man liked to hit my bladder when running. Honestly, I think we got pregnant because our car was broken into. It was an insane month and we were so busy dealing with that and some other things that for once we weren’t thinking about getting pregnant. We had been trying for 8 months!

I went on a 3 mile walk on Friday with him in the big boy stroller and he did amazing. He likes being in the stroller outside. Now, in a mall where momma is shopping for clothing, not so much. I think tonight should go well. I think we will all have a nice time.

If all goes well tomorrow morning the lil man and I can go for a run as soon as he wakes up and eats his breakfast. Instead of hanging out inside watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse! HA! Not that I think it is bad that he watches this show from time to time, but a break outside of the house is nice. He enjoys being outside. I am looking forward to getting out and about with him more now that he is older. I have so much fun doing things outside with him. I am seriously so excited.

I decided to go with a BOB Revolution SE Single. I read through reviews on Amazon and I liked a lot of the points people wrote about. I obviously cannot say yet how I feel about it, but I am guessing I will be happy with it. I have never used any other jogger before, so I have nothing to bias myself. I chose the orange one because of safety. I figured we would be easier to spot with a bright orange stroller, so a vehicle would have an easy time seeing us and not hitting us accidentally. I normally have at least one piece of bright colored clothing on when I run outside for this reason as well. The last thing I want is to blend in.

I have never really spent a big chunk of money on something for my sport before. I had a hard time swallowing the price of it. I kept trying to put off the purchase, because they are pricey. Jason finally said it is smarter to buy it sooner rather than later so that you get more use out of it for the amount we are spending. He is/was right. That makes sense. I have been reading about joggers since before I even had him. There are a few conclusions I came to after all of my reading. Which led me to choose this one.

If you don’t like this stroller, please do not bother letting me know that. To each his own. I am not knocking any other strollers, this is just the one I believe is for my family and me.  (I may still be paranoid from the facebook debacle last week ha!)

Tonight will be family fitness night. I think it will be fun for us all to go on runs together more frequently. Soon we will also buy some bikes so we can do bike rides together too. Yes, we are totally going to be that family you see working out together. Don’t worry though, we will never purposely be wearing matching “outfits” Jason would never let that occur. He hates for us all to be matching. Hates it with a passion.

Here’s to staying fit with the two most awesome boys in the entire world!
