Sunday I ran 6 miles with baby C on the section of the W & OD we now live off of, so I knew what I was in for this morning.
The first 2 miles were going to be mostly uphill with only a couple of little bits that were either flat or a tiny rolling downhill – the 3rd mile of the out and back would be completely uphill with no break till the turn around. Last night while sitting outside in our new screened in outdoor porch I remarked to Eric that I was pretty sure the first three miles of my run were going to be close to 11 minute miles but that I didn’t really care because of how beautiful I knew the run was going to be.
If I could make it to three miles with all three kids – the last three miles would be mostly downhill – I could just coast and enjoy the views of horses, farms, barns and the like.
Chloe told me our run was the prettiest run we had gone on together. The triple stroller doesn’t fold so at our old house our options to run anywhere other than the side of the road were limited. It’s the little things in life that add up to make a big diference in the quality if your life. I am so very grateful that we now live on a trail. I see many more HAPPY stroller runs in our future.

After our run we headed to the basement to clean up the new playroom. It’s going to take awhile for everything to find it’s place, but in the mean time we are enjoying every moment in our new house.
