My running & Stroller Strides! :)

I've been doing *ok* at getting my morning runs in.
It looks like Sophie has caught on to my getting up early to run without her and she has started to get up earlier and earlier.
This makes it difficult to get out the door when the hubs is still asleep and she is crying mommy mommy at the front door like I'm leaving her forever!
So, it looks like I either need to get up even earlier (booooo) or start running with her in the stroller again. It was just nice only having to get ONE person dressed and out the door. She's such a diva that she has to have her Hello Kitty pillow, her fan, her ICE water, her apple sauce, and usually a "baby" with her on every stroller ride.
Sometimes I just want to go run by myself with my music and not having to add extra weight trying to push her around the neighborhood!
But I NEED to run!
I can so badly tell when I haven't run that day.
Even if I go to my stroller strides class, I can still tell that I needed that extra run.
So I will have to make a sacrifice somewhere!

That brings me to my next thing!
Stroller Strides (aka Fit4Mom)!!!


I can't remember if I mentioned it, but I won a 10 day free pass from the Fort Worth Moms Blog back in May. 



I have absolutely LOVED it and I have decided to officially sign up and keep on going!
I love that it is for ANY fitness level, it is a GREAT workout, and I get to do it with Sophie!
It is absolutely AMAZING the things Sophie has picked up!
We will come home and she will start doing squats at the house! Then she picks up the resistance bands and starts trying to copy something we did that day! She will get down on the floor and start doing planks or sit ups! And she's always doing our daily stretches!
THAT is the main reason I wanted to keep going!
She is seeing mommy workout and seeing that it can be FUN!
She also loves to run around the house, pushing her baby doll in the stroller, screaming "run like mommy!!!" 
I LOVE it!
It makes my heart SO happy!
Plus being around all of those other moms is so amazing!
So many awesome conversations and we are exercising and motivating one another together!
Our instructor is amazing as well!
She really knows her stuff and is so motivating to all of us!
It's just an amazing program and I hope all of you other moms will look it up!

You know how much I LOVE my Moms RUN This Town mommas!
Well I love my Stroller Strides mommas just as much!
Two FABULOUS groups of ladies! :)

This is what PRO Compression has to say about how they work:

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…
