Thursday Nights With the FNRC

Back in 2012, my Thursday nights revolved around one thing: the Thursday night run with the FNRC. It is amazing what a difference a few years/months makes. Now with Patsy at home, and with my work and breastfeeding schedule, I haven't been able to make it to a Thursday night run in awhile. They are currently doing some construction around the office so we are working from home Thursday and Friday. Working from home = no commute = I can make it to a Thursday night group run! I was really excited to meet up with some of my pals that I haven't seen in awhile. Something I didn't anticipate, was that the Illinois Marathon was this past weekend. Lots of the Thursday night runners participated in this year's event so they were tapering on their own schedule and weren't there on Thursday. On the plus side, I met some new faces and was able to run with my friend Amanda who I started the group with a few years ago!

I warmed up quick on the run and lost the long sleeve and short sleeve I was wearing. Gotta get used to these spring temps! Patsy was an angel and loved the jogging stroller run! I haven't really figured out the weather shield--it doesn't seem to fit the stroller very well. I might need some advice from a BOB expert. Haha. I did 3 miles that were progressively slower (oops) but that's alright. The jogging stroller is always a different animal and makes every run an adventure!


I'm looking forward to more runs with this great group in the months to come. Thanks for yet another great Thursday night run!

  2. I hope you get to keep working from home a bit! Isn't it great not to have a super long commute? Are they renovating some of your office?

  3. Yes, it has been working out well so far, so I'm excited about that. It is WONDERFUL to not have the long commute... AND I get extra time with my Patsy girl so it is win-win! :)

    The weather shield I have doesn't fit my bob perfectly either...I can't have the canopy up if I want it to stay on! =/
