Ruth is an older British woman who runs the whole thing. She talks a mile a minute, tends to ramble, and is hard to listen to after a while. She has one son, an 8 and a half year old that she brought and pushed around in a stroller until school recently started. She also shared that she breast fed him until he was 3 years old. The other moms aren't quite so..."Ruth" but I end up talking to Ruth most since she tends to focus her exercise and running coaching on me since I'm the newest member. Let's just say, I'd like for someone else to join so I can get some one on one time with the other moms.
On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays we run (with strollers). On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays we do stroller fitness. We meet at 9:30 in the morning downtown Danville and do various exercises while singing nursery songs to our babies in the stroller. It's a little dorky and embarrassing when other people walk by. But the little ones seem to like it. Even my Timo, the youngest one (and the cutest :P) was smiling.
However, sometimes I see other young moms walk by with their strollers and coffee, chatting to each other and staring at us singing and hoping around and I think "I'd rather be hanging out with those guys. This is lame." But oh we'll! It's better than nothing!
The good news is, at 10 weeks, I'm back to my pre pregnancy weight! But, my pants still don't fit which is a bummer. Apparently this happens to everyone and after having a baby your body changes shape (aka widens). I'll add that to the list of things people don't tell you. I'll probably do a post on that topic eventually.
I've signed up for a 5k in October that I'll run with the other moms. My first 20 minute continuous run is tomorrow morning. Wish me luck!
