We went on a spur-of-the-moment mini-vacay in smelly Decatur. We were hoping to hook up with a friend of mine who just had a baby but didn't want to go all the way to her house in Springfield if we couldn't meet up, which is why we chose Decatur. We didn't end up hooking up with her, but that's okay. Soon enough I'll get my hands on her baby :)
So we just hung out as a family and went swimming in the hotel pool. It was pretty fun. Right before dinner I went down to run on the hotel treadmill while the kids and Chuck rested. I planned on 9 but really wanted to quit from mile 2 onward. It was really hot in the exercise room. I wish I had brought stuff to run outside because it wasn't too bad out, but I didn't plan real well.
Once I got to 5.5 I thought about quitting because that would have brought my miles to 30 for this week. But instead I kept going because I knew I could do better. I threw in the towel after an episode of Sex and the City ended, which I do not generally watch, but it was the only thing I could find. When I was coming back up to our room I met my boys half way. They were coming down to look for me since they were hungry, so it was perfect timing.
