Stroller Strides in the Park

Workout group for Cary moms offers fitness, camaraderie, and no need for babysitter

Dilemma: you want to work out, but you've got an itty bitty human with you. What do you do?

A) Once again leave the kid with dad/grandma/nanny/the neighbor's kid who isn't really old enough to watch kids on their own but they're cheap labor/the dog
B) Don't work out, because it's too much of a hassle
C) Take the kid to the park and do a Stroller Strides workout!

Oh yeah, I'd say C) is a clear winner in my book too! 

I first got connected with the Fit4Mom Cary/Durham Stroller Strides group at the stand-up paddleboarding event at Lake Crabtree, and when Devon from the group found out I was taking photos for Wake County parks we chatted about which parks were included. It turns out a group of moms regularly do a workout at Crowder district park, so I headed over Monday morning to meet up with them and take some photos.

Now I'm not an expert on working out with kids in tow, but I've been around enough runner moms to know that a running stroller sure isn't light. Add to that pushing the stroller up a steep hill or counting and singing to your babies while you do squats and jumping jacks and wall sits, and you've got a heck of a workout! The Fit4Mom Stroller Strides group was super welcoming and friendly, and I was so happy to meet everyone there.

Thanks Devon and Fit4Mom Cary/Durham Stroller Strides for letting me tag along one morning! Check out the photos below and on Facebook!
