Five miles never felt so good.

The weather here has been perfect. I spend so much of my running time with a jogging stroller in tow that my posture is horrific. Thankfully, I have been able to use my time in the CST to my advantage. I am trying to keep on my two hour earlier schedule and get in some quality running time.....A-L-O-N-E.

It is amazing how much faster I am sans jogging stroller. It is amazing how much more soothing the time is when I am not worried about entertaining, feeding, keeping the child buckled in.

Granted, I LOVE having her along for the ride. She enjoys the time and I like having her outside. We usually stop and have some park time and all that jazz.

But it is so nice to have five miles to myself. And a cup of coffee when I get my. self.

In some ways I think I was a loner in my past life.


  1. Amen sister! It is the litle things as a MOM that we enjoy.. I often put my kids to bed and stay up late to watch Greys for some ME time.. We need it!!

  2. Allie a loner?
    Maybe it is just another phase
    of life that you are experiencing. Take care of yourself and enjoy your "ME" time, it's ok! All Moms need this time to recharge. Love ya

  3. Hehehe... Well since you asked..

    We put the kiddos to bed at 9PM and I am usually lights out by 10PM.

    My commute to work is an hour to an hour and a half and I like to give myself time to Blog for a few in the AM. So I wake at 5:50AM every morning.. UGH!! When I work from home I cut out the commute so I got up at 7AM today.. It was nice!!
