My Running Buddy...

Meet my running buddy.

My cheerleader.

My motivator.

Elyse LOVES to go on runs in the jogging stroller. I, on the other hand, don't LOVE pushing that thing...but do enjoy having her along with me for several reasons.

"Go, Mommy, Go!"

"Faster, Mommy, Faster!"


"Yay, Mommy!!!"

This is what I hear as I jog along, struggling to breathe, with sweat pouring down.

Now that's motivation!

This morning we ran 5 miles at Wilson Park (ugh, those hills!) and there was a man running who kind of resembled her Poppie. Every time we passed him Elly would yell "Run, Poppie, Run!". Too cute.


  1. How fun! She is darling! :)

  2. oh my! too cute!! i'm sure she kept poppie motivated too!!
