jaygee~Dayton is a great little city. I love that area. My best friend growing up was there when her DH was stationed at WPAFB and they really enjoyed their time there. That said, I'm still rooting for Colorado!!!
kayalana~Welcome! I have a Chariot, and LOVE it. Seriously.
They are expensive but soooo worth it. Especially if you have thoughts of biking with your little one(s), as it is also a bike trailer. I didn't get mine until DS was almost a year old, but I have several friends who have used them starting around 6-8 weeks for running with the infant sling. The infant sling is really nice, and they're really secure in there. You can sometimes find them on Craigslist, although around here, they're snapped up almost as soon as they're listed. A couple of the things that I like about mine over other jogging strollers (other than being able to use it as a bike trailer): it's totally encloseable, as in no chucking snacks/toys/books/blankets out; it's totally encloseable, so I can take DS out even when the weather is kind of crappy, he's bundled and warm and cozy inside; lots of storage space; breaks down and folds up really easily.
real~You're more than welcome to test mine out if you like, but I don't have the infant sling. As mentioned above, I have several friends who DO have the infant sling and really like it. You might keep an eye out on Craigslist. They're almost impossible to find, but I think this is probably the right season to score one.
I learned a few hours ago that baby Jimmy didn't make it.
I'm guessing that he may already have been gone by the time I heard the initial news yesterday, as they buried him with Robin today. I got a message from my advisor that they suspect it was an aortic aneurysm, so she really never had a chance.
My running partner bailed on me for the morning. Sigh. Wimped out b/c of the cold. So I was debating whether to go ahead and follow through with the plans to run in the frigid cold at 6:15, or to go to the Y for 12 miserable miles on the treadmill, or to bag it tomorrow and run Sunday morning, when it will be just as cold (or colder) but I can actually wait until daylight. I think I'm leaning toward Sunday. I'm in the middle of baking cookies, making spiced nuts, and making pulled pork for tomorrow morning's holiday party, and I'm already tired.
rr~Spin/pilates class this afternoon at the Y. I decided to test out my lungs and skipped my inhaler (but took it with me, just in case). It seemed to be ok, although I think I've been coughing a bit more since. I'm definitely not ready to give it up for running quite yet.
