Running Mom Checklist

Ever have those days where you feel completely scattered and just can't get out the door, and every time you head out the door, you think of something else you're forgetting?

Running Mom

Well I would like to present to you, the runner mom checklist. Here is a list of all the things you should have with you if you are going for a run, whether solo or with your kid.

I've left some empty slots at the bottom so you can add your own, then just print it out, and check it off as you prepare for your run.

Item Check
jogging stroller  
an assortment of your baby's favorite snacks (sweet & salty)  
2 bottles or sippy cups (in case she drops one)  
lolipop, pacifier or something else that sooths your baby  
a book for your baby to read  
a toy for your baby to play with  
a toy for your baby to play on the playground in case you decide to stop there  
a snack for you when you're through with your run  
water, gatorade or whatever your favorite form of hydaration may be  
a 100 calorie snack in case you need a little something extra to fuel you in the middle of your run (make this 100 calories for each 45 minutes of your run, so if you're going out for 2 hours, take three 100-calorie snacks)  
wet ones  
change of clothes for your baby  
change of clothes for you if you are going somewhere after your run  
weather shield for the jogging stroller  
comfortable blanket for baby to sleep on, or to keep her warm if it gets cold  
wallet and keys just never know when you're gona need them  
hat and gloves for you and baby if it is cold outside  
You do have your running shoes on now right? ;-)  
Oh and did you remember to put baby's shoes on? No insult to you, I just ask because I forgot once or twice. Thankfully I didn't get further than the elevator.  

Now with all that you are pushing, you will be the fittest, sexiest looking mama out there! ;-)

There are many more things that a running mom may need, including a moment to herself from time to time. Visit this interactive checklist and share what one thing you believe a running mom can't live without.
