I had planned to run an easy five miles today. Due to quite a temper tantrum thrown by the youngest my 'mommy guilt' set in and I ran two miles instead of five. It was a tantrum that could be heard almost a block away (I could hear Punky as I was running away from the house). Thankfully, by the time I got back Punky was happy as a clam.
In addition to Punky's tantrum it started raining about a mile into my run. I don't mind running in the rain, but it was just one more reason to go home.
The good news about the run: Maddie ran all 2.11 miles! This was her longest run and she did pretty well. I'm still not used to stopping during my runs so she can have potty breaks, but I can't exactly explain to Maddie that she needs to go before we head out on a run. Today: 2.11 miles, 20:27 min for an ave of 9:45/mi. Not only is Maddie getting better at going the distance, she's getting faster too!
