I have a new running buddy.
It has been dubbed "The Beast".
Look, it scares my dogs.
They were trying to hide between my feet from the minute I got it out of the box and started putting it together.
Ok, really not THAT much bigger than my amazing double, but hello, an extra kid! This beauty allows me to go running during the day again. Hallelujah!
I did have to say goodbye to my double, it's beautiful 20inch wheels that rode as smooth as silk....it will be missed.
But I was pleasantly surprised at how smooth this sucker is, and that it navigates quite well for all it's enormity.
It arrived late Thursday night (who knew FedEx was still delivering at 7:30?), and first thing Friday morning we took it out for a spin.
5 miles with three kids. Awesome.
My new view:
Emily's first run.
Well, her first run while not housed inside my body.
She slept peacefully through the whole thing, completely snug. Perfect. Just like old times.
The official verdict is two thumbs up.
Loving the new routine of walking the kids to school and immediately heading out to run. Taking full advantage of every morning of good weather before we have to face winter and our little excursions come to an end for a while.
