I had to take advantage of the great weather we had today and no wind! I tried to get one of the boys to run with me but they were too interested in the new basketball courts they set up near our house. I loaded up the jogging stroller with all my stuff and my daughter. I even had to come back inside and change from a long sleeve shirt to short sleeve! We just went at a nice slow pace because we had to stop a lot to get Kallie situated. Finally after 2 miles she settled in and I could run. We went through town and down Main Street, across the tracks and out by the country club. That's when I called my DH to come get the jogging stroller and the daughter. I was tired of the right hand tug of the stroller and she was tired of my BORING run. They decided to go get a coke so I gave them all my water and extra stuff, told them my route, and begged them to meet back up with me with a diet coke in hand. I headed back across the tracks, down main street, by the courthouse and library, past the elementary school, and in to the park. I was beginning to give up on the diet coke when my knight in shining armor (white pickup) pulled up with my drink. I had first thought I would get in with them but that was when I thought they would be back to get me before I got back to Main Street! Since I was just about a mile from home, I decided to finish the run. Especially since I had a drink of diet coke to carry me through. I ended up doing a little over 7 miles. According to HR monitor, 1271 calories burned! I took an ice bath as a reward and had my DH rub me down with the Stick.

It was great but now I am in bed with ice packs on my knees and toe. I also ran with out anything under my knee brace to see if it would chaf. It did. Jo said use diaper cream but since it's been 3 years since we had anything with diapers, I used antibiotic cream.

Hope to be better and ready to go again tomorrow cause J and I have to do 5. Wonder if we can get her DH to drive us somewhere without wind again!

Love the new profile photo. Great job on the run. Hope the knee feels better tomorrow for your 5.

I can't believe you ran all the way to the country club. I wondered how you got 7 miles in...but going all over town would be the way.

I'm jealous of all your running, but not the chafing. Hope you figure out something with the knee brace in the summer.

Good job on the run!
