The Little Red Car. In Action.

Earlier this week, it was just me and Little Dude. I wanted to fit in 4-6 miles with Little Dude while Little Diva was at school. With our treadmill broken, I could only head outside. It was cool and chilly and a dreary day. I was productive all morning, cleaning the house with Little Dude.

Little Dude and I finally headed outside for our run around 2:00 and the sun came out. Perfect. But, we were both overdressed for the warm (and surprisingly humid) weather. The sun was shining down on us as we started our run with the Little Red Car.

The plan was to get my run in and end at Little Diva's school and to play at the playground.


Little Dude ate 10 inches of his Fruit by the Foot
before we even headed out!!

We headed down the road to one of the neighborhood bike paths

Here is the Little Red Car. In action.
It keeps us BOTH happy! :-)
Beep. Beep.

We stopped at the pond to look for ducks.
No ducks today. But, we did see a crane.




This little butterfly ended up
flying along side us for about 1/10 mile.

We ran about three miles and approached the bike path near Little Diva's school. Little Dude was very quiet and his head was starting to bob again. He was out. Again.

I ended my run there. Three miles done. I took him out and carried him over to a bench at the school. We snuggled for twenty minutes until Little Diva was done with class. We sweaty. Him snoring. It was awesome.

But not before I took this sweet video.
(Of course.)

  3. Too cute! It's awesome that he likes the little read car that much for you to be able to get your run in. Hope you get your treadmill fixed/replaced soon!

  8. First, I do not know how you run with that car! I would break my back leaning over to push it (but then again, I'm quite tall). Second, how do you look so darn gorgeous with make-up and all AFTER pushing and running for 3 miles?

  10. I can't believe you can run with that car. That's just awesome. Love how you run with him to pick Little Diva up. My mom used to walk me to school and back everyday when I was in elementary school and I love those days. That's a great opportunity to bond and keep fit. :)

    You look really good with that Bondi Band and your makeup after the run. How did you manage that? I usually look like a panda bear, even though I use waterproof mascara.
