Strolling Along

Yesterday we had grandkids all day, and it was a busy day. The girls went home about 5, and then two little boys showed up at about 5:30. We hadn't walked yet, so we planned a route that we thought would be about 2 miles, popped the boys in the stroller, grabbed some water bottles, and off we went.

We forgot to take our pedometers, so we didn't get exact mileage, but I found a website where you can easily map and adjust a route, and according to it, we went 2.65 miles and burned about 357 calories. That's not accounting for pushing a big double stroller, though. It was a really good workout.

If we do it again, I will do one thing differently: oil the wheels of the stroller first. It's an old one, and it does squeak and squeal and even whistle as it goes along. The two-year-old kept leaning over and studying it, as though he was trying to figure out where all the noise was coming from.

  1. Google Earth is really great for mapping out mileage, too.
