Marcie and I love a wonderful bike path about a 20-minute drive from our house. It’s a six mile train (12 miles round trip) , running alongside the Saddle River, and passing through four towns along the way.
A few weeks back, en route, we passed a woman on rollerblades pushing a baby in a stroller. That brought me back to nearly 23 years ago when I did the same thing. I’m sure other people have used the term since—I called it strollerblading.
That was during my same early days of fatherhood during which I started my early-morning exercise routine. When I would finish the 5:00am diaper change and bottle for our firstborn, it felt too early to get up for work, yet too late to go back to sleep. I realized I could rock Jeremy back to sleep in his stroller while I peddled my stationary bike.
Time is always the number one excuse people make for not exercising as much as they would like to; or as much as they say they would like to. Like so many things in life, exercise is usually not about not having enough time, it’s about not making the time.
