There are only 116 days until my due date!! I have been counting down the days and weeks until I get to hold my daughter in my arms.
Like most expectant parents, Jon and I have been busy making plans and preparing for Olivia's arrival. I have done research on just about everything from car seats to bottles and everything in between. It's been slightly overwhelming to figure out what we need for Olivia.
After doing some research I also talked with my sister Vivian about what baby stuff I am going to need. Vivian is a mother of two and a wealth of knowledge when it comes to baby stuff! I am so thankful that I can talk to her about this stuff. Finally, after all that Jon and I were ready to create our baby registry at Target. To read more about that, click here.
Even though we created our baby registry, I have found that there are more things to add to the list!
This past week I have been doing a lot of research about jogging strollers. For a while, I did not think I would need/want a jogging stroller. Don't ask me where I got that idea from, because I was dead wrong.
The truth is...I want a jogging stroller...I need a jogging stroller.
Please do not misunderstand me, because I enjoy being pregnant. However, I am looking forward to the days after Olivia arrives when I can begin to run/jog again. I miss jogging more than I ever expected. I have been walking a lot throughout my pregnancy. I even walked a 5K! However, it's just not the same.
For this reason, I am trying to figure out what would be the best jogging stroller for me. An article that has really helped me is called A Runner's Guide to Jogging Strollers from Running Times. If you want to understand more about jogging strollers, I would highly recommend that you check out this article.
I will be getting a jogging stroller in one form or another. Right now I want a BOB Revolution Stroller, because all the reviews I have read says that this one is the best. It's also very expensive and I am not sure we have money to splurge on a stroller like this.
I do not want any excuses holding me back from being able to run/exercise after Olivia is born, which is why I will be getting a jogging stroller sooner than later. By removing the excuses, I think it will help me to get back into a regular exercise routine more quickly than if I was trying to figure all of this out after Olivia was born.
If you have a jogging stroller, I would LOVE to know which is your favorite one! Please share with me what you like best.
