If you’ve read this blog recently you’ll know that my wife and I were expecting our second child. That moment finally arrived Wednesday morning. As you can imagine the last couple of days have been quite busy and running was the last thing on my mind.
since this blog is about running I am happy to report that I had an opportunity to go for my first run since the arrival of our new daughter. This morning I loaded my other daughter into the Chariot and headed out for an easy 7.5 km run.
Since buying it a few years ago my older daughter and I have logged many miles and gone on many adventures with the Chariot during my weekend runs while I was training for a marathon. It was one of the best investments we made after she was born.
With two children there may now be a need to replace our single stroller with a double one. That is provided of course that my younger daughter enjoys riding in it as much as her older sister.
I am fortunate that I will continue to be able to get in most of my weekday runs on my way home from work. longer runs over the weekend may prove to be a more difficult option to fit in on the weekends.
So far it has been a fun ride sharing my training with my oldest daughter and I hope I will be able to share as many miles and adventures with my new daughter.
