Running Music

In our efforts to get back into shape, Chris and I started running again. Prior to me getting pregnant with Toby, we were both running regularly, and did several races–both 5 & 10ks. After I got pregnant, I had intentions of sticking with running for as long as I could, but I was so sick that it didn’t last very long. Chris ran off & on, but suffered a leg injury that had been keeping him from running as much as he wanted.

We registered for the Peachtree Road Race for this July 4th again and got picked to do it (through a lottery system). We knew we had to get our act together & start running more regularly.

We bought a double jogging stroller and here we are.

Our kids love it. Toby sleeps most runs & Elodie chats with Chris. He’s the one that pushes them when we run, and he’s still faster than me!

Today as I was running, I thought I’d share my running playlist in case you need some inspiration to get out, enjoy the beautiful weather, & burn some calories.

Spring has Sprung… sort of.

Anyone who knows me knows I’m NOT made for the cold weather. As soon as there is a hint of warm weather, my mood instantly perks up. I complain nearly every morning when I check my weather app & it says 30’s or 40’s. I’m beyond ready for spring/summer.

March is a crazy month, weather wise. One day it’s sunny & warm, one day it’s snow-flurrying, and then we’re under tornado warnings the very next day. So we try and savor those lovely warm sunny days, because you never know when we’ll get another one. We’ve spent a few days at the park lately and it’s been wonderful.

We also spent the other weekend in downtown Kennesaw at an annual event they host called, Touch-a-Truck. They have dozens of vehicles, school buses, fire trucks, ambulances, police cars, etc. out on display for the kids to run around, get in, and touch. It was a gorgeous day & Elodie loved getting in all the cool vehicles they had. The BEST part about the event was that everything was free! They had inflatable bouncy houses for the kids that were free & they were giving out free popcorn! We couldn’t of asked for a better way to spend the morning.

This was a great event & I’m looking forward to more out-doorsy stuff as the weather starts to improve.

Hope you’re starting to enjoy the glimpses of spring.
