Warm December Family Night at the Park

Last night, Jen, B, and I took the dogs up to the park to enjoy the unseasonably warm weather.

I wanted to get a run in, Jen wanted to take the dogs for a walk, and B and a friend wanted to play on the playground -- it was a great night for everybody!

I was planning on running alone, but as soon as I took off, the dogs went CRA-ZY, especially Huntie Bear. I took them along with me for the first loop to burn some of their extra energy.

After close to 2 miles together, I handed them back off to Jen and did another loop alone.

It was so obvious that I haven't run in a long time; while I still had pretty good endurance, I was doing good to keep my pace under a 9:00/mile pace. I felt sluggish. Even so, it felt great to get out and run again, especially in this kind of weather (the temps got up into the 70's yesterday).

Jen said that right after I took off on my own, Huntie kept turning around to check on me, and that he kept looking at every guy who ran past to see if it was me.

Didn't realize he liked me so much. :-)

After I met back up with Jen, we walked together for a little while longer. I had barely gone 2.5 miles, but I was done running for the day (walking with her them just sounded better).

Ahh, look at that belly!!! Only 8 weeks (or so) left!!!

So yeah, I'm really happy I got another run in. I really hope to get at least one more in this week.

But tonight's definitely out, since we're going to the DAVE MATTHEWS BAND concert tonight!!! Oh yeah, that's happening. (Gonna get this kid into Dave even before he/she comes out!)

Happy Tuesday, everybody!
