I am so thankful for my current sponsors, including:
Why sponsor LA Running Mama?
I am a full-time stay at home mama of three little runs (ages 5, 3.5 and 1.5) who runs and races with a triple stroller. Apparently, triple strollers are a rare sight. The comments, looks, stares I get every single day by every single person — especially kids — are incredible. I have come to be known as “the triple stroller running mom.”
I have been a runner for 15 years now and after giving birth to my third baby in four years, I convinced, begged and ultimately went behind my husband’s back to purchase a triple jogging stroller I found on Craigslist. He was in Europe on business for a week and I was sick of being unable to run without paying a babysitter or bribing a neighbor to watch my kids. I broke the news via google chat, explaining that I needed this for my sanity. A year-and-a-half later, we are still happily married and it was the best purchase I’ve ever made. He loves to take the kids out for a run, to the LA Zoo, parks and other kid hot spots in it. The comments never stop coming — I suppose a triple stroller is a rare sight!
I run about 40 miles/week with the triple (which now weighs 160+ lbs loaded to full capacity with my 5, 3.5 and 1.5 yr olds). On weekends I usually get in one long run alone. My husband works a lot and it’s a luxury for me to stay at home with my kids, so if he has to work then triple stroller running it is! The furthest I’ve ever pushed the triple was about 12 miles, on hilly trails in the Santa Monica Mountains. Running is my greatest passion, along with raising kids full time and writing and managing my blog.
Through running and writing, I hope to inspire other mamas and women (and men!) to get out there and do what they love. Whether it’s running with your kid(s), hiking a new single track, digging through tide pools — all favorite activities of ours — I want to teach my own children and others that women are strong, capable and incredible. With your support, I could expand my readership and reach more women out there and inspire on a greater level.
