blah First Run with the Baby on the Bike Path in the BOB. 6.21 mi 01:19 12:43 pace

Let's be honest here. I started off walking for a LOT of this, because from the get-go, I had a sharp stabbing pain under my ribs (not like any side cramp I've ever had). So that made me cranky right away. I had to turn around at around mile 3, because Lucas started freaking out and crying, so that was annoying too. Not to mention the many stops we had because he was screeching so loudly- I kept trying to calm him down, but he was SO DONE with the stroller (he's used to being worn next to me in the Moby, so the stroller is rarely used).

But at least I did this, even if my pace looks atrocious. (Oh, I am finally using my Garmin watch that my husband got me for Christmas- AWESOME.) And plus, I got a creepy old guy yelling "I LOVE MOMMIES!" at me as I ran by. Haha. ;)

    AHHH! I remember running with a screaming baby in the BOB. I'd tell myself, there's no point in stopping, it will just mean it takes longer to get home until I can nurse him. Good for you for getting in the distance!
