So I finally decided on a stroller. I had decided on the Joovy Caboose Ultralight, but before I could order it, I suddenly got the urge to start running again. Never mind that I haven't run a single mile in about seven years. So, instead I ordered the InStep Safari Swivel Double Stroller, and am anxiously awaiting it's arrival so the running can begin.

Emma does not want to take naps or go to bed lately. Every day when I can see that she's getting tired, I tell her it's time for a nap, and she always tells me she's not tired. I then tell her that she doesn't have to take a nap, but we do have to lay down and relax for awhile. She, of course, always falls asleep. Today was no different, except that after I told her we at least had to relax for awhile, she looked at me skeptically and said, "You're just trying to trick me! Every day I only want to relax but I forget and I fall asleep!"

Tonight Steve was working at the table and Emma started pushing the buttons on his keyboard. He asked her to stop and she kept doing it. He swatted her hand away, exclaiming, "What did I say?!" Angrily, she retorted, "Something very rude!"

Hey Sarah,

Check out the couch-2-5k program. There's also a podcast. We have a thread over on MDC and in the last 3 months I've went from just walking to running over 3 miles. Good luck!

Hi Sarah,
I saw someone with a very similar stroller and at the time thought that it would be good for you. Hope it works.

Hi! I was just popping in to say I bought a new double stroller/bike trailer at Costco the other day. Will is now riding a 2 wheel bike and so now I can put Jack in the bike trailer and keep up with Will. Or there are the times Will likes to ride in the trailer too. It also coverts to a double stroller. I figure I can sell it on craigslist once we're done with it.
It was $175 but I'm sure it wouldn't be as good of a jogging stroller as the one you got.

I hope that you are enjoying your running and sticking with it. That Emma is a punk kid!
