Have I mentioned how much I LOVE this warm winter?
Thursday, I picked up Henry from daycare, topped off his tank (fed him a bottle), and we headed out into a nearly 40 degree evening for a quick run. He was all wide-eyed when I loaded him up:
I ended up covering a total of 8.5 miles in 57:56 (6:49 / mile average). Henry woke up as I was walking about 1 block from home. We pulled into the yard and he was making faces at me:

Yesterday, it was 45 degrees and Henry and I needed to get in a long run. So we headed out again! He passed out ONE BLOCK INTO OUR RUN!
Me and Claire!
(I'm hat-less and sweaty in shorts on a run IN FEB! I love it!)
Henry was now awake for the rest of the run. I wanted to run another 8 miles or so, and I did it without being much more than 2 miles from home in case Henry got too cranky and we had to sprint home. But he was a CHAMP and we got in a total of 12.4 miles! And I didn't mean for it to be fast (I was PLANNING on just a longer, slower run with Henry) but because he was awake, I ran a little harder in case he got cranky and needed to get home. My final 6 miles were all sub 7: 6:37, 6:56, 6:38, 6:46, 6:35, and 6:33. In total, we did 12.4 miles in 1:27:42 (6:59 / mile average).
We got home as Henry was falling asleep again. He woke up a few minutes later and was all smiles again!
