|I'm starving, FEED ME!|
They have a system now where Faith pops the Oreo open, licks off all the creme filling and then gives the soggy cookie parts to Cordelia who acts like she just won a prize.
It's a better system than Faith's previous method of giving the soggy cookie pieces to Peanut as she runs along next to the stroller. Peanut is already looking a little fluffy around the middle, so there is no need for her to get anything extra (other than the countless Puffs that hit the ground during meal times). As it is, Peanut is already lagging behind on the runs and we're not going quickly at all. She needs to get back into faster running shape before next month's Pet Day 5K!

Recently my double stroller runs have felt so, so hard. I figured it was a combination of increasing my weekly mileage again and the kids getting heavier. As I was leaving for my run today, I was struggling to push it up the tiny hill outside my house and I realized that the tires were almost flat! Turns out that I'm an idiot! Once I pumped up the tires, it was so much easier to push the stroller. It still pulls to the left and I have to fight with it all the time to get it to go straight, but with full tires I was able to finish my stroller run over 10 minutes faster than I did last week. Learn from me: check your stroller tires! That's my #1 stroller running tip.

Have you ever accidentally made your running harder than it needs to be? One time I ran on a treadmill and couldn't believe how slow I felt and how much that run sucked...and I realized at the end that the incline was at 3% (and I'm a wimp about incline). It's not always a smart idea to put a towel over the treadmill display!
