According to a study published in the July 2012 Journal of Physical Activity and Health, when parents increase their activity levels, so do their children. Running outside with your children in tow not only helps you achieve your own fitness goals, it encourages kids to be active. Fitting in running while raising small children can be challenging, but with a little preparation and patience you can achieve your running goals in no time.

As a child I was always desperate to have a dog, I can remember pestering my poor mum time and time again for a puppy. That was in addition to the pony, that I was sure could live in my bedroom – ahhhh the innocence of children!
There is something very special about the unconditional love that both children and dogs give you. You just can’t help but feel happy when you are in the presence of happiness itself. Nothing acts as a better pick me up than children laughing just for the sake of it, or a dog having a funny five minutes charging around, simply because it has a burst of energy that it just can’t control or contain.
Hannah and Joshua love our Chocolate Labrador Bentley. They love running around the garden with him and Hannah is always keen to come on daily dog walks.
Yesterday I decided to take Bentley and the children for a walk through a park with a wooded area, which is ideal for exploring. The challenge was the undulating path, which was incredibly bumpy in places due to tree roots and once again the Terrain did not disappoint as it made easy work of the woodland floor and steep slopes. The pneumatic tyres are just superb. Knowing how easy they make walking in this kind of environment, I could never go back to any other pushchair.
We are lucky to have some fantastic walks right near the house and the Mountain Buggy Terrain has proved to be invaluable on many occasions. One of Joshua’s favorite places is near the river; the water just seems to call him. Maybe he will grow up to be a famous sailor, discovering uncharted waters or perhaps a marine biologist diving in the gorgeous waters of the tropics.
I often look at both Hannah and Joshua and wonder just who they will become and what changes to this world they will make. Ultimately, Iike any parent, I just want them to be happy, to enjoy the wonders of life and be able to treat everything they experience as a gift and an opportunity for growth. That would be an amazing thing indeed…..

I miss running. I miss running... alot. I also miss walking my overly excited awesome dog Doug for more than 9 1/2 minutes without becoming completely winded, swearing at myself under my breath. Who knew that both physical acts were such a luxury and not to be taken for granted?!!

I have had the Mountain Buggy terrain for about a month now and I am totally in love with it! As a runner, I was very attached to my BOB and trained for an entire marathon with it. I didn't think there would ever be another stroller that could even compete with it, but the terrain is it! I honestly think the terrain is a better stroller than the BOB.

We made an international callout for some lucky parents to be our first ever terrain product champions in 2010! These guys were the first in the market and provided some amazing insight into how the terrain performed for their everyday needs. We catch up with Connie Wisdoms, an awesome lady and mum of 5 based in the UK.

I have always been a broody person, that’s obvious when you note the close age gaps with my children. Not long ago the brooding was back in a big way, and knowing Brodie was the last for us and already growing so fast was hard.

In the pre-children chapter of our lives, most of us would have had some wild days. You remember those days? Where you felt good about yourself, enjoyed nights out, brought clothes and shoes as and when you liked. But more importantly, you had self esteem about your body.

I've always said that I would end my buggy days on a high, and thought the Mountain Buggy urbanTM would be it, as I’ve experienced one before. That all changed when the all new terrainTM was released. I had a dilemma: trust my instincts or throw caution to the wind and take the plunge?
