3 Photos from Henry's First Half Marathon!

.... *unofficial* half marathon, I should say.

Pharmie had to work this past weekend, so I spent a fair amount of time with my little guy. Saturday, his Auntie visited for a while, and Sunday his Grandparents visited. But before family came up on Sunday, we went for a long run.

It was a cool morning, so I got Henry dressed in layers, including his little mittens:

He was awake and looking around for the first 3-4 miles, but then he passed out:

We ran up and down the hills along the river. I didn't know where all of my mile markers were (I planned it that way on purpose), but I took my splits when I was on "familiar territory." We ran the first few miles easier, but then we picked it up for miles 7-11. My splits for those miles were 6:46, 6:40, 6:42, 6:35, and 6:27. Henry was passed out the whole time.

I knew we would be CLOSE to 13.1 miles, so we ran an extra 2 blocks on the way home during my cool-down. It was a good thing we did, because when I mapped it out after my run, it came to 13.11 miles in 1:33:59. It was Henry's first (unofficial) half marathon!!

Henry woke up a few blocks from home, and was awake (and missing a mitten) when we pulled into the yard:

Don't worry... the mitten was in the stroller

Henry, it's so much fun to run with you! I hope you "put up with" my runs for a while!!....

I wish my first half marathon was that fast (and that I could manage it by sleeping through half the miles)! Way to go, Henry!
