Spec the runner…

One thing I already have figured out, is that Spec loves to run. I guess most pregnant women say their babies are active all the time, and I really feel that way. I question if Spec sleeps at all…except when I run. He goes right to sleep and stays asleep for a few hours. I don’t know if what a baby does in the womb keeps happening when they are born, but if so, I may find myself out late at night with a running stroller if that is what it will take to get him to sleep. And, you know you have a running problem when you spend more time researching running strollers than pediatricians 🙂

I would also like to make a shout out to Melissa. She just completed a 5K running program with some huge challenges thrown in. I personally am much more inspired by those with regular life challenges than the elite runners with no jobs, nannies, personal physical therapists, free running gear, etc, etc. When I freak out that I won’t be able to run after having a baby, it is reassuring to know it’s been done and under even more challenging circumstances that just one kid.
Sorry for yet another picture of my Christmas “tree”….I really like it though!

  1. Amelia likes to sleep while I run too. I notice that she goes quiet as soon as I start and then usually wakes up when I am in the shower at home. I usually crawl back into bed after the shower in the hopes of catching 30 more minutes of sleep, but this is apparently her post-nap kick-boxing practice time. Bottom line, give me a call when you find yourself on a late-night stroller run. Spec may have company!
