They’re HERE!

I have been expecting her for weeks, and I was anxious to meet her. I had heard how she could improve my running, and I had seen pictures of her.  She is…oh how do I say this?… She is like beautiful physics in motion.  Physics you say?  Yes, the thrill of some sort of Newton(ion) physics.  Well, okay that’s a weird description, but that’s what she is.  Anyway, I’m getting distracted.

They told me she was going to be stopping by soon, and I’ve been waiting, and well, the time has come!  Look who just walked in the door!  She’s dark around the toes, on her sides and the heel, with a radiant pink complexion about her on her upper.  And her sole… oh her sole has the same radiant pink.  She’s beautiful!

Hey, wait a minute!  I thought she was the only one stopping by.  Who’s he?  What?!  You’re married?  He can help me too?!  What a great team you make!  Your husband, he’s dark around the toes on his sides and around his heels too, with green on his upper and sole.  You know they say it’s not easy being green, but…that’s a nice green.  Well, you make a beautiful…err…handsome couple.  This actually works out even better, because your husband and I can go run together, and you and my wife can go run together.

So, where do we start in all this?  Soler’s Sports you say?  Okay, well I’ll tell my friends to stop by our store to meet you.  Oh really?  You’re one of a kind?  There aren’t many of you around, and you can’t be reproduced?  Well, where all will you be going?  Awesome!  All 4 Soler’s locations, and you’ll be at all of them today, Wednesday, Aug. 21.  Okay, I’ll pass the word quickly

I gotta run, it’s nice to meet you Mr. and Mrs. Newton LE.  Oh, and I’ll tell my single friends that they don’t have to be married to meet you.  Oh, you have some single friends too?  Nice.

Jogging with Baby

I’m not sure about you, but the turn in the weather just makes me want to get OUT! And for those of you with little ones at home, the cooler temps probably have you wanting to pull out the jogging stroller, too.

Here are some tips for jogging with baby:

  • The general recommendation is to wait until your baby is 6-8 months old before running with him/her in the jogger. By this age they have stronger neck muscles to handle the bumpy ride.
  • Make sure you have a jogger that is matched to your activity. Strollers that are designed for running have unique features that you will appreciate:  good suspension (to reduce bouncing), non-swiveling front tire (best for running, swivel is ok for power walking), tether strap (for safety on steep inclines), lightweight frame for easier maneuverability, five point harness, etc.
  • Practice with the stroller before heading out for a long run. It will take some getting used to!
  • Be aware of your route,  and make sure your stroller is appropriate for the terrain (wheel size, suspension, etc). Make sure you will have wide enough passage for the stroller, the area is free of obstacles, and do not run with the jogger in the dark.
  • Never take your hands off of the stroller while running. The wrist strap is a safety device, it is not intended to be your sole contact with the stroller.
  • Be courteous to other runners, walkers & cyclists. Give them plenty of room when passing or move over to allow them to get around you if necessary.
  • Don’t forget the sun! Be sure to cover your baby from sun exposure and use recommended sunscreen for small children.

BOB strollers are one of the more popular brands of joggers for a good reason. They offer a variety of features and a good price. Check out this fact sheet for more information!
