Day 252 - 152.2

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!

Hubby and I were talking last night about how we dread the day that the kids want to stay out all night on Halloween. We were home after an hour out.. and about 1/4 of the pumpkin full.. which was fine with me!!

You are running your little butt off!! Oh .. Wait.. you already did that! LOL Your stamina is really getting stonger huh? Have a great 'short' run tonight... (I died after 2 miles today! LOL)

I love the picture of Luke with his lovey (blanket) and Sophie looking pooped. Your son is still at that age of "what was that all about?".

Hope you enjoy your easy run tonight.

I can't imagine reaching a point where 3 miles is easy--but then again, a few months ago, I couldn't imagine being able to run ONE mile. You're very inspiring.

I'm signing up for another race to keep myself motivated.

Killer with the run!! ;D ;D

Awwhhhhh how sweet are they!! Adorable!! Did you use the wagon some of the time? You know, I totally should have thought of that. I think it would have made things a lot easier LOL
