It has been a few months of running as a mom and I think (and I stress the word think) I have it together. Let’s talk about stroller must haves for new moms.
Figuring out how to run as a new mom was step one. Wrapping my head around running with a stroller, maybe a dog and the physical demands.
There is one way to appreciate running alone. Run with a stroller all the time. You will forever be thankful for the time to run alone.
Then there was the matter of how to execute it. I had to consider when I ate last, when my son slept last and slept next, the weather, do I need toys, what about a snack. Will he be too hot? Could he get sunburn? Man, it felt like more work to go than to sit at home.
But isn’t that always the case.
Once I got over myself. Got out of my own way. I figured this mom running game out. Here are my stroller must haves for new moms.
Investing in a quality stroller is a key to a favorable run. This stroller is 1000% worth it. I can’t imagine running with anything else.
I have included a few of my favorite accessories for the stroller too. I don’t necessarily run with all of this every time, but I use it all weekly. The strap is essential – it will save you from stopping to pick up a toy/cup every 5 feet. And the handlebar console is great for running/walking/events. So handy for you.
I also put in my two favorite training items. A good watch and incredible shoes.
And for those of you that are following along with my.IronMan journey I shared How To Use Interval Training For A Successful IronMan Run and the Mental Challenges of Training for An IronMan As a New Mom.
Cheers to a great run!

Last week was the hardest week of training for me. But probably not how you are thinking. The mental challenge of training for an IronMan is the most significant part for me and doing it as a new mom has been wild. Physically I was fine. I mean sure i was tired. But...
When I signed up for this IronMan race, I knew things would be different. I had just had a baby, we own a business and my husband’s favorite activity is golf. All of those equal time. That means I had to get creative with my training, especially with the swim. Plain...
