Made that second chance at 5 miles a success yesterday. And I'm realizing that I truly hit my stride and feel the rhythm of the run after 3 or 4 miles. I could have kept running after that 5th mile, but of course couldn't because I had responsibilities and had to stop after my 56 minutes of running. But that makes me look forward to my long run this weekend. I'm gonna shoot for 7 miles. Today I've planned an easy 3.
Halloween with the kids was too much fun. They were so good, and we were out only for about an hour and got back before dark (SO glad "they" delayed daylight savings time change until this weekend). The weather was perfect--no jackets required. Here's some pictures. Sophie is a Snow Fairy, and Luke is a clown. My favorite is their "after" picture in the recliner. They are tuckered out!
