Jogging and blogging: The Bugaboo Runner has me going in the right direction


I have been using the Bugaboo Runner daily to get both my son and myself out of the house for a little fresh air and exercise. My new adventure with this incredible jogging stroller was first chronicled in my Glamazon Mama column for South Florida Parenting magazine. You can check out the original story here.

I used to be very into exercising but then my ongoing battle with endometriosis significantly slowed me down. It just got too easy to stop. Then once I had my son, going to the gym became an impossibility. So I took the advice of a local fitness guru and fellow mom, Kristy Wexler, who told me to ditch the gym membership and invest in a jogging stroller instead and just do what was possible for me.

I have to admit, I am one of these people who simply thought having a gym membership and not actually using it would somehow help. Like, if I were to cancel it, it somehow meant I no longer cared about my health. But I decided to be bold and canceled it because there really is no sense is keeping a monthly subscription on anything you’re not really using.

So, here I am each day, sometimes very early in the morning or early evening, pushing my Bugaboo Runner along. My son Jack is smiling as the occasional breeze blows through his curly hair. The smile on his face says it all. He’s enjoying the walks with me as much as I do. We have even boldly jogged for a few minutes each day together. We are both learning and growing together in this process toward better physical fitness.

The Bugaboo Runner really has changed my life. The stroller is so easy to glide along on the asphalt or sidewalk, I really have no excuse now not to want to get moving. The hood on it is easily adjustable for the unpredictable Florida rains shower. I don’t have any excuses anymore.

I will continue to journal my adventures with the Bugaboo Runner here.

Thanks for reading and have an epic day!
