I recently started running again after taking quite a bit of time off. Fitting in a workout between working full time and being a mom can be really tough. Running is something I pretend to like but it can be really hard. There is nothing better than the feeling of finishing a run, completing a race or beating your last time, but honestly the hardest part of running can be lacing up and going out in the first place. I’ve been trying to set race goals for myself this summer and in the past that has always worked, but for some reason none of my friends were doing any races this year and so I didn’t want to do it alone, what’s the fun in that?
The best motivation I’ve had this summer has been my little A who happens to LOVE the jogging stroller. I can’t take her on long runs since her attention span is short, but so far she has been a great running buddy and has gotten me out there several times.Rrunning with her is still hard, but at least I have my little buddy with me!
