Being "Fit" and Running With The Family

>> Saturday, November 12, 2011

My goal of staying "fit" this winter is going OK so far. All of my strength / core workouts have been SUPER quick, but they've been intense. But I still haven't swam or biked since my last triathlon in August. Oops. Gotta work on that.

But Henry and I have been having a good time on a few runs. On Sunday, we ran 8 miles by the river. We started off and Henry was all smiles:

Asleep and running near the Franklin Bridge down by the Mississippi

Back near home as Henry was JUST starting to wake up!

And then on Thursday evening, I got home from work and all 3 of us headed out on a CHILLY run! It was 34 degrees, but it was calm. So we bundled up our little guy and hit the road:

Loading up Henry (with Henry Mancini watching in the background)

All layered up (but before putting on his mittens)

Around mile 1.5 shortly after entering Minneapolis

Stopped at a stoplight near the U of M

Henry fell asleep shortly after this, and slept almost until we got back home. Pharmie and I (and Henry) got in 6 miles on that chilly evening!

Back with more on my upcoming running / racing goals! Have a great weekend, everyone!

p.s. If you need more of a Henry / running fix, check the right sidebar of my blog for my 5 most recent TwitPics. Or check out my TwitPics profile for instant photo updates. I started "tweeting in photos" about 2 weeks ago.

Never too many pics of the little guy. Love that you are able to embrace being fit as a family. Some of my runs and rides get kind of lonely.

That last pic of Henry and Pharmie is hilarious. Great look on his face.

such a cute baby. I always think he looks like a little man already.

Henry's happy and sleepy in St. Paul and anxious and terrified in Minneapolis. He sure figured that out fast!

THE CHEEKS! Oh, the cheeks. LOVE. He is getting so big!

SteveQ: we've actually been joking about that for a while! Sometimes, we hit MPLS and he starts to get crabby. The little guy is a 'Paulie for life! :)
