stroller strides

let me preface this with…i NEVER….and i mean NEVER EVER….thought i would be one of those moms who exercised on the side of the road with my baby in a stroller. this is just another example of the many times i have had to eat crow say “never say never”. because i am ADDICTED. when my son was younger, i started a mommy & me meetup group and met my now good friend sam. she had joined stroller strides and convinced me to give it a try. i am NOT a runner but she promised there would be other “walkers” in the group. i am so thankful she convinced me to join because now i go three times a week. and would go more if my instructor worked on T/TH too (come on bre…don’t you want to workout with us FIVE days a week?)! in fact, i am already bummed that i will be missing class this week….although i will be at luckyfabb so i can’t complain. but i am running in my first 5k in about 20 years this weekend too so i am pretty excited. =) if i can do it…believe me…so can you! so what better way to end my post than with some workout wear inspiration ( i own all of them except the neon shorts)?!?!

p.s. you win 5 points if you can spot me in one of the pics above.

    #5 is my favorite. I love short sleeved items like that. Totally cute and I would wear it outside of running too!

    Of course you already know that I love, love, love this post. I’m so glad that you are totally obsessed with working out now. Can’t wait for our 5k. You know there’s a half marathon calling your name next :). Great workout gear picks too!

    Awesome. Love the photos and that you have embraced working out. It is always more fun when you have the encouragement of friend. Best wishes to you as you run your 5K. The rush and sense of accomplishment will have you signing up for another one!

    Ummmmm… I thought I was the one who convinced you! Sam was the one who convinced me but I swear I am the one who convinced you to try it. Can’t wait to join back up with you this summer!

    I love it!!! That was me 3-4 yrs ago. NOw i do it on my own with some other women at bootcamp. We are like the picture minus the strollers. You’re right, never say never. It’s wonderful, you get to workout and your kid is safe and sound with you.

    I didn’t think I would do stuff like that either, but I LOVED mummy and baby yoga. With my next kid, I am going to do Salsa Babies (pretty much a self explanatory class!)
