I have run, for exercise, close to 15 years now. I enjoy running. With this in mind, today I decided to do something I have always wanted to do on a professional level, and that is properly train to run a 5KM. I am very excited about it, especially as the 5KM is for children’s charity – Girls On The Run. It also helps that I can take my Son with me to the preparation workouts each week.
Wow, was Miles Storm a terrorist or what today at Baby Boot Camp? All of a sudden he is super interactive with other babies…. pity all the other babies at class were younger than him and just not feeling his vibe!
I have been looking for another exercise class to do in “Willy B” on the alternate days to which “Mighty Mamas” run on Tuesdays and Thursdays for a while now – exercising only 2 days a week is not enough for me. Thankfully, having started 6 months ago Baby Boot Camp is executed at Caribou Baby and the Betz Method Gym in Greenpoint on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays during the week. Perfect compliment to “Mighty Mamas”.
The Gym Park is another great find!
To think a few weeks ago I thought that there was nothing really for my Little One to do – boy was I wrong. There is so much to do in the Williamsburg Brooklyn area, I can barely keep up.
Head down to 8 Oak Street down in Greenpoint, on the East River, if you are ever stuck for an indoor activity, or you just want to let your Little One tire themselves out. There is plenty to do inside the Very Colorful 2,800 square foot facility including trampolines, swings, hula hoops, scarves, toys, balls, and lots of other children! Everything is Padded too, which is great. Miles fell over so many times running and jumping, and did not bat an eyelid, it was all part of the appeal for him.
This morning, (not to my liking because it was so unbelievably cold and frigid out), we walked the 2 miles or so to the Playgroup which is held at the Greenpoint Reformed Church located on Milton Street.
First of all – what a beautiful street Milton is. So many gorgeous town houses, and although the leaves are not on the trees right now one can only wonder how pretty it looks in Spring/Summer. I cannot wait to see that!
