Re: Hot running (newish) Momma's thread...

I have a Bumbleride Indie. It folds nicely, but doesn't fit well in a small vehicle (I can get it in my mom's Sunfire, but just). It's my everything stroller, and great for running.

Re: Bike Racks?

This post is timely -- I have an SUV, and we have a roof rack, but I find it very difficult to get my bike on the roof rack by myself given the height of the vehicle to begin with. Does anyone know if there is another option (other than hitch), for the back of an SUV. I want it to be sturdy (of cou...

Re: Hot running (newish) Momma's thread...

I'll be joining the running Momma's in the spring. I'm currently not running through my pregnancy but I'm trying to stay active. I'm currently looking at strollers and from what I can tell from past threads the BOB Revolution SE seems to be a popular choice. I am considering only buying the one str...

Re: Hot running (newish) Momma's thread...

I'm here and running! Or at least, trying to. My early bird has been getting up extra early lately, so I'm having a hard time fitting in my runs. I usually get up early to run before anyone is awake, but if she wakes up before I go, I feel really bad leaving her, because then it means DH has to get...

Re: New marathon: Banff

This would be a great excuse to visit the in-laws. I'm not sure I'd survive a marathon in the mountains though. I'd have to train in Gatineau Park every day. The course itself looks to be more rolling with no major climbs, with a net downhill as Turd has eluded too. For you and which was the case f...

Frozen butter tarts are better than regular butter tarts. I also prefer the PB marshmallow squares frozen.

Re: New marathon: Banff

This looks great for a future year :)

Houston to Calgary can be way cheaper than $1000 US. I flew Edmonton to Houston with a stop in Calgary for under $400, with a seat sale. It was Scare Canada, though.

Shortbread done, chocolate roll done. My made-up trifle recipe actually turned out quite tasty. Now I decide between that one or the PB one (which I won't eat) for Christmas eve.

I think John is at an age where he would like to help cut out and decorate sugar cookies. Other than that, I have no idea what I should make.

I don't even know if I am going to do a trifle this year, since I can't eat it.

Re: What can you tell me about minimalist shoes?

I had a lot of calf pain as my legs adjusted to the different shoe (I hit more mid-foot than heel with the Newtons). Once my musc...
