Yesterday, we were a house divided. I am a UNC alum and my husband is an FSU alum.
FYI: It’s not easy to take a self-portrait with my husband.
Just in case you’re not into college basketball, UNC played FSU yesterday for the ACC championship. “Intense” is one word to describe the game, and unfortunately, it didn’t have the result I would have liked. Dangit. Good thing the tournament is about to start – time to fill out my bracket!
After the game, I took the Mini Athlete out for a run in our new jogging stroller.
We recently got this BOB Revolution stroller off Craigslist for $200.
It is used, but barely. My husband took it out for a spin the other day and said it would take some getting used to – he loved the old rickety one we had.
I decided to take it out to see for myself. This version of the BOB can either be fixed wheel or not. I tried it with the fixed wheel…and hated it. Maybe it’s because the tire pressure is a little low, but for some reason the stroller kept veering to the right. It takes a lot of strength to get the stroller going in the right direction and it wore me out. I stopped and let the wheel swivel and WOW. Suddenly I saw what all the hype is about!
Smooth ride. Easy to handle.
The only downside? Acts like a parachute on a windy day. We didn’t go too far because of the wind resistance and because I haven’t run with a stroller in a while. It’s a whole different motion. My obliques were burning by the end of the run – which is clearly a sign I need to do this more often.
That photo just might be my new favorite. His toes crack me up.
What a great weekend. Over too quickly…as always.
Tell me about your weekend – did you watch any basketball? Go on any runs?
