So what better way to launch this community platform to you, than by holding the cool Mountain Buggy Active terrain competition held over a couple of months ago - remember that?! I must say this was fun, as part of the entry requirements was to send through your 2012 Active goals, and also let us know how the terrain will change your lifestyle. Amazing the response from you all, with some pretty awesome goal settings taking place - to get active safely and securely with child, setting up a daily active schedule, by getting out there with baby would have the knock on effect to quit smoking... the list goals on for some pretty amazing targets and lifestyle changes.
One of our three lucky winners got in touch with me the other day.
Tanya Neufeld (from Canada), emailed me which was a lovely surprise, just to let me know how she was going and what her family have been up to since receiving the terrain. Tanya had a really powerful 2012 Active goal which was: "Lose 10 pounds and firm up body post baby. Run 40kms per week in addition to hiking and mountain biking at least once per week. Establish a weight training program." Pretty inspiring stuff right? We were impressed! So here's her email on how her family are doing so far - and it sounds like between her, Grace and the Mountain Buggy terrain, they are the perfect combination!
We did receive the terrain bundle! I have been meaning to email you back to let you know how much we are loving it!
I set it up the morning that it arrived at our door and we went for a run. I thought that the urban jungle was working pretty well for running, but the terrain is definitely a much better fit for us. The bigger tires and suspension makes for a much smoother ride for Grace, and I feel much more comfortable running on our trails with her now. The hand break is also great as we live in Nelson, BC and it's a town that is essentially built on the side of a mountain and we live at the very top... so there is a lot of walking/running downhill...
I feel like I have much better control of the stroller now. We are using it for running on trails and the railgrade as well as for walking around downtown.... because it's been super versatile we use it everyday. We have also been putting the covers to good use as well because the spring weather goes from rain to sunshine throught the day! We have also received many compliments on it! Grace loves sitting up and checking things out and she also naps really well in it.
We are so grateful that we won this stroller! Thanks so much again!
Thanks so much Tanya for checking in and showing us that after only over a month of receiving your terrain prize, you aer getting straight there and living the dream! You go girl!
Anyone else coming out a winning combination with their Mountain Buggy - are you living life without limit? We'd love to hear in the comments section below!
