With warmer weather I’ve been running with my son in the stroller more often. This is exciting for me for two reasons:
- I didn’t run much with my daughters when they were babes. I had a double jogger and 3 toddlers. I had a supply and demand problem.
- Unlike when my daughters were toddlers, my son really enjoys the ride; he does not protest, beg to get out or cry halfway through the run.
So these days running while my daughters are at school is both feasible and (this is so important) enjoyable. There’s more to know about running with children than simply strapping them in and taking off. I interviewed my friend and fitness expert Darcy Franklin after taking one of her running clinics, so I could learn from her, and share with you, tips for running with a stroller.
