Cabrillo Sunrise 5k Recap

View at Sunrise 5k in Point Loma
One of the most beautiful views in all of San Diego

It was an especially chilly San Diego morning on February 9, 2019! Our Bumbleride team was up super early before the sunrise in Point Loma, CA to head up to San Diego’s only national park, Cabrillo National Monument for the Sunrise 5k. We love sponsoring local events where we can be outside exploring with our families while also giving back to our local community.  This particular sponsorship helps provide science and education for underprivileged kids, a subject near and dear to our hearts.

Bumbleride Event Tent

We set up camp and did some pre-run stretching and yoga, fueled up on hot coffee and took off on the picturesque route along the Pacific Ocean. The crisp air and expansive ocean views were amazing and it was fun to be at the park before the hours it is typically open to the public.

Cabrillo Sunrise 5k Finish Line

What a fun 5k! We crossed the finish line and went back to our booth to help answer questions about Bumbleride from local families. It was an intimate event that we loved being a part of. We can’t wait to sponsor the next Sunset 5k coming up on Saturday, July 20th, 2019! Join us!

Run She Is Beautiful – Baby Mama Division 5k & 5 mile – Santa Barbara

We arrived. We ran (with Speed). We were inspired once again.

This was the third consecutive year that we’ve sponsored the Baby Mama Division of the inspiring She is Beautiful run in Santa Barbara (we also sponsor the Santa Cruz run!)  Being there, it’s impossible to not be inspired, encouraged and celebrated.  The two sisters, Melissa McConville (race founder & director) and Sara Tanza (Assistant Race Director & Chief of Fun) wouldn’t have it any other way.  They exude happiness and kindness + see the good in everyone.  Their MORE LOVE attitude is contagious.

With motivational words posted all through the course and groups of women from all walks of life walking, running, skipping or pushing a stroller, the race goes by in a blink.  Set right on the Santa Barbara coastline, the beautiful scenery is the icing on the cake.

Bumbleride’s mission is to make gear for you to get out and do what you love while doing our best to preserve the planet we all share.  This run helps us see our mission in action. This year, not only did we see tons of parents out running in the fresh air with their little ones in a stroller, we were so thrilled to see RSIB take the waste element to a whole new level with both compost and recycling options next to trash bins.  The race directors regularly attend conferences to help them to reduce their environmental footprint and reduce waste altogether in these large scale events.  So cool.

Each year, proudly gift a Bumbleride Speed jogging stroller to each of the winners of the two distances, 5k and 5 miler.  These strong, dedicated mamas deserve it!  Congratulations to the 5k winner, Molly Thomson from Santa Barbara, CA and the 5 mile winner, Laura Ewing from Ventura, CA.

Join us next year!

She.is.beautiful’s Mission Statement

Empowering women and girls through movement and community in a supportive environment where they are able to take the lessons learned on the road and trail into the rest of their lives.  We believe that beauty is more of a feeling than a physical attribute. We believe everyone deserves to feel beautiful, strong, smart, and capable in their own unique way. We believe so strongly in the power of sweat and community. We think there is something powerful that happens when a women/girl learns how strong she really is and how this can impact the rest of her life.

 

Improve How You Move : Running Stroller Form

Calling all stroller runners and walkers who want to avoid injuries and get stronger!  Sara, Assistant Race Director of Run She Is Beautiful 5 & 10k is also a Doctor of Physical Therapy with some really great knowledge that she would like to share with you about staying healthy while running with a stroller. We are proud to offer one of the only stroller division races in the country, with our Bumbleride Baby Mama Division and can’t wait to see you out there running with your kids.

Running while pushing little ones is different for every person.  Many of us had idyllic visions of cruising effortlessly through beautiful scenery while our child cheered us on. We were soon hit with the hard reality that a stroller and the weight of that beautiful child was harder than it looks!  Beyond that, while the cheers of “Go Mama or Dada” can be heard occasionally, keeping said child entertained with endless rounds of “Itsy, Bitsy, Spider” and a constant commentary of all the vehicles you see driving by raised your heart rate to new levels, while your pace still slowed.  Finally, many people who are picking up stroller running are new moms who have just put their bodies through the rigors of pregnancy and birth.  They might have additional areas of weakness caused by these things AND are likely still under the control of hormones that make their tissues more flexible and possibly more prone to injury (these hormones have been shown to remain active in the body until 3-6 months AFTER you stop breastfeeding).

With that said, for many parents, a stroller run is the only way for them to get a run in or a time they truly enjoy spending with their child.

Today, we would like to bring you some tips to improve your stroller running form, both to prevent injuries AND improve efficiency….Read More.
