Tay’s First 5k! Well… kinda!

I know what you’re thinking, “but, Taylor just started walking a few months ago, how could she do a 5k already?!?” HA!

What I mean is Taylor rode along in the jogger stroller while I ran the 5k.


There is a running group that meets every Thursday at the outdoor mall and runs a 5k around the mall.  It’s tons of fun and over a 100 people show up each week.  Some are even crazy enough to bring their babies in strollers, so I thought, what the heck and tried it too!  I find it more difficult to run with a stroller, but I guess it just takes practice.  It was just tough running all around  since it’s 90 freakin degrees every afternoon here - rain or shine.  Good thing Baby Girl had her snacks and a sippy cup with her along for the ride.  She didn’t have to lift a finger.

After the run, everyone ends up at the Brass Tap for a nice cold beer.  We had to skip that part since I had a 1 year old in tow, but that’s all good.  We went to Moe’s to get a burrito instead.   


running shoes

I take it that you’re not cool unless you have neon running shoes these days… Everyone has them!  I think the Olympics must have made them popular.  I am dying for a new pair of running shoes but they are so darn expensive!  I want Nike’s next because they will sync up with my iPhone app for running distance and speed.  That will be so handy! 


Happy running, or walking, or whatever you like to do!

  1. Lauren - is there any way I can e-mail you?

    You and Taylor are absolutely precious!!

    1. Hi Tammy! sure, my email is


  2. I imagine it would be hard to jog with a stroller - and my fear would be if that sippy cup fell and I got plowed over picking it up! ha! my luck...

  3. Taylor looks so grown up with her two top teeth in place! She's getting so big! Miss you guys.. We need to do a pedi/wine night sometime soon!

  4. Oh my gosh!!! She's so beautiful Lauren!! My how she's grown!! It's been a long while since getting on here I think of you and Tay from time to time as I still have my Green Bean bracelet ^_^ I'm sorry for your more recent loss god will certainly guide you and baby girl through!!! Sorry too for all the "anonymous" rude comments asking where and what!! It's obviously your life and if you weren't ready to tell that part of your life people should respect and understand!!!

  5. Is it true that your ex left you for another man?

    1. rude can you be?!?

    2. Why are people so cruel? Lauren is a much better person than I am, because I would have deleted your rude, none-of-your-business comment immediately!
      And to use Anonymous?? REALLY??

  6. Tammy I was thinking the same thing.....I was always told if you have nothing nice to say then say nothing. Anonymous i guess didn't learn this. Lauren is a strong women to not lose it with them....
