On Saturday, I had my hair done which also marked the longest time I have been away from Audrey to date! Three full hours and I missed her dearly! She did really well hanging out with Daddy and drank her bottle without a fuss. She played with Grandma and went down for a nap but of course woke up as soon as I got home! It was nice to have some child-free time but I felt like I was missing a body part the entire time!

On Sunday, Audrey and I made the trek downtown on the train- her first time outside of utero- to watch Daddy finish his half marathon. She was a little trooper and behaved quite well. I was a little worried how things would go since she generally doesn't like being in her Baby Hawk Mei Tai carrier for more than 45 minutes but there was no way I was bringing down the stroller to that finish line gongshow!

She actually did quite well and only freaked out after 2 hours when we walked by a loud speaker that screamed in her ear while she was trying to sleep.
We were able to see Daddy finish (in 2:02 untrained!! Unfair!!) but I couldn't get any pictures as Audrey decided that was the time to eat!

We also went looking at running strollers on the weekend. Unfortunately I lost the Chariot vs. Bob battle since the Bob does not have an adjustable handle and my 6'4 hubby needs a higher handle. Funny enough when he was looking at Chariots at the store the other day, a man approached him saying he had a practically brand new Chariot that he was willing to sell. Hubby checked it out and bought it.

Our first clinic session started up on Tuesday and we hadn't bought the Chariot yet so Grandma looked after Audrey while we ran. We did 4K and it was hard but felt so good at the same time! We only took two breaks at lights but the rest of the time I ran which is great considering I have only been doing 5 and 1s. Thankfully I had a good running partner to keep me going as I surely would have walked if I had been on my own!
Last night was Audrey's first ride in the Chariot and she didn't make a peep as long as the stroller was moving!! Hubby said it was super easy to push but it took a bit to figure out arm pumping and just getting your stride right. Turns out I am going to have to push A for my first long run this Sunday since Hubby will be out of town. Luckily I had a few other runners offer to help so I won't be too far behind!
All I can say after 2 runs and a 4.5k walk, my legs are sooooo sore!! Ouch! It's so nice to be back on the trails!!
