This running business seems to involved a lot of falling down.
It has been a long, long LONG week. Henry is getting teeth or having a mid-baby-life crisis or something and he feels that we should all not sleep. I know this will pass and it will be okay, but boy, I am tired. Plus, my tooth that got the crown won't stop hurting and while I think it is getting better, I want it to be all better now.
With all this in mind, I took a pretty easy week on running. That was kind of nice, but by Saturday I was itching for some serious mileage. Sadly, we had a super busy weekend planned so, instead I decided to take the stroller and run with Henry to Buddy's first ever Pinewood Derby!
I was so excited. Sam left with the other kids in the car and I picked up Henry and walked over to put him in the stroller... then I tripped on the front tired and oh, so very gracefully fell down! I narrowly avoided bashing Henry's head on the corner of the cement step by sacrificing my knee and elbow. I kept ahold of him and somehow managed to set him down as the rest of me crashed into the cold, hard, driveway.
Well, we went in the house for a good cry and some bandages since I had skinned my knee. Then, we decided to run anyway. It was only a mile trip.
It was actually pretty fun.
When I got there, Oz was totally losing his mind wanting to touch all the derby stuff so I didn't get to stay. I loaded him up with Henry and we ran back home. Of course, by this time my knee was throbbing a bit so that run was less awesome. Still, worth it.
Oz loves this stroller so much and Henry does too!
I'm a pretty big fan myself, especially now that my friend Somer gave me some great tips on how to run with it more easily.
