8 at 8

Yesterday, I ended up getting my run in after all -- shortly after I posted, I got Norah back to bed and I still had time before Jerry left for work, so I was able to get out for a quick 3 miler. But thanks for all the advice on a jogging stroller, I definitely think we'll look around for one.

Today, Jerry got up with Norah, so I got to sleep in some (glorious!) and then I went out for an 8 miler around 8 am. My goal for the 8 miles was to finish in 1:20, and what was my time? 1:19:51! Woot! Beat my goal by 9 seconds! Needless to say, I was pleased.

And, when I got back, Jerry had made me a breakfast burrito, which was delicious post-run fare.

Not much else on the schedule for today. We're going to a Chinese New Year party this evening, but that's about it for excitement.

Good job! I love getting my runs done early in the morning. It just feels so nice to have the whole day ahead of me after that. Of course, I never think this when my alarm goes off though.

Ah yes, the jog stroller. I'd rather run without it, but some days it's a life saver! Glad you got to get out for a run!

I didn't get to sleep in today - Rylee accidentally set Jon's alarm to go off at 5:15 am. Argh!
