His name is BOB...

I have a new love in my life...
His name is BOB.


I would like you all to meet my new boyfriend BOB.
(not the cute baby girl!)


He is Amazing.

He turns on a dime, looks cool, keeps Sophie covered from the sun (and rain today!), and he is going to help me with new PR's! :)

I'm in L❤ve! :)

When I cam home from a day of shopping on Tuesday, there he was sitting on my doorstep.
I will admit, I jumped up and down and squealed like a little girl!
In front of my new neighbor who had just gotten home and was getting off his motorcycle! haha 
I was sooooo excited!

I had posted on my Facebook a week earlier that he was on sale on Amazon and asked who wanted to buy it for me as an early Christmas present. I did it as a joke, even though I really did want one! Then I got a phone call for my mom-in-law asking if I really wanted it and said they would get it for me for Christmas if I did! I couldn't believe it! Um...Yes I want it Please and Thank you! :) 

It arrived already put together! All I had to do was put the wheels on!
If you only knew what I went through to put my last one together...at 8 months pregnant....when it weighed 40 lbs....Let's just say, this was A LOT easier!

I must say, I can completely tell the difference between my cheapo jogging stroller and this amazing, hunky piece of a stroller! ha!

I believe the best part about BOB is how light he is! If I didn't hear my daughter talking to me most of the time, I wouldn't even believe I was pushing the thing! With my old stroller, I had to lock the front wheel in order to run because the whole stroller would start shaking uncontrollably. This one, not necessary to lock it! (They do, however,  recommend you run with the wheel locked.) He turns on a dime, the sunshade is twice as big as the other, and Sophie has more wiggle room! He also has more padding in the seat to make Sophie more comfortable! With the old stroller, when Sophie would fall asleep, she would end up laying her head on a hard piece of plastic and every time I hit the slightest bump she would hit her head. :( BOB doesn't have any plastic for her to hit her head on! She will have much better naps with BOB! :)

I am looking forward to many more rendezvous with BOB in the coming months as I train for my Half in March! I think we are going to have a great relationship! :)

* Does anyone else have any experience with BOB or any other "cheapo" jogging stroller?
Please share! I would love to hear! :) 

**And don't forget about my Runner Decal Giveaway going on HERE!
You have until Wed. September 19th to Enter! :)

WooHoo! 
Now, as I have promised, I have a pair of Compression socks OR sleeves to giveaway from PRO Compression!

This is what PRO Compression has to say about how they work:
"PRO Compression socks are designed specifically to deliver both maximum comfort and speedy recovery times. The science is complex, but benefits such as improved blood flow, stability and comfort are universally understood.  The moment you put these socks on your feet and incorporate them into your game, you will feel and understand the difference."
I have 4 pairs of PRO Compression Marathon socks and I LOVE them! They have been wonderful for recovery after my last two halfs and after my long training runs!
I didn't own any after my first half, and it took me almost 2 weeks until I could …

Big News!

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging much is because we just bought our very first house!!! Isn't it beautiful!
We don't move in until next week, but buying a house has taken a lot of time! I've been packing our apartment up a little at a time, but we still have A LOT to do!
It's hard to move with a toddler, because you don't want to shake their world up too much. They need their usual toys and to be able to find their favorite shoes amongst the boxes. Taking it slow and moving a little at a time just seemed like the best option.
We are going from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 bedroom home!  With a backyard! Down the street from a park! We are going to have so much space!  Being able to go outside in the back and down the street to the park is a huge deal for me!  Sophie and I LOVE being outside! I am so excited! I just can't even describe it! lol :)
And that's not all of the big news!
I also got a job!
It is an office job, where I will be doing t…

Some of my Favorite Things!

I just wanted to share some of my favorite Running gear right now! :)
I'll start with the one thing that everyone knows I already love...
My BOBRevolution SE!
I've been using it for a a few weeks now and I'm still in Love! I'm not sure how I've lived without it these past 15 months! You can read my BOB "review" here! :)

My newest favorite thing are my hotpink Locklaces!

They are elastic shoelaces that  tighten by a "lock". They make it easy for me to just slip my shoe on and go! They are also wonderful because I have had issues with my shoelaces being too tight on the top of my foot and these fix that problem! No more pain! I wish I had known about these forever ago! I will have them on all of my future running shoes!
I love their moto!
Now onto something that I think every single person who is active outside should own. Pepper Spray.
In this case the Personal Saver and the Wrist Saver.
This i the Personal Saver I carry it on my keychain everyw…
