Becoming a Runner Mom
Hi, I am Kelli Huenecke, a new employee at 605 Running Company.
A little bit about me: I enjoy a little coffee, running, and Jesus. I grew up in Iowa, playing multiple sports in school, which helped me realize that hand-eye coordination sports were not my thing and I should just stick to running. After high school, I enjoyed a year of college at Iowa State University where I realized I missed being a part of a track and cross country team. I then transferred to the University of Sioux Falls and was able to be a part of their running program.
This is my 4 month old son, Lux Roman. I always dreamed that when I became a mom, I would own a BOB jogging stroller. I was ecstatic when I finally owned one (thanks to my wonderful parents) and found myself walking around the house pushing an empty stroller before the little guy came. I dreamed of nice long runs, breeze in my hair, and him smiling up at me. What I didn’t know was how difficult it would be to run with something that is so easy to push. It is definitely a different way of running that I am still getting used to. So if you see me huffing and puffing on the bike trail, or even walking, just smile and wave. And to all the moms out there running miles with a stroller (or even a double stroller), kudos to you!

PS If you have any pointers on running with a stroller, I will gladly take them!
