I am going to guess on this distance. My garmin died .2 in. I want to see how close I was when I map it. Hopefully I remember the route I took. There was a lot of going up and down blocks so I could avoid main roads and their questionable sidewalks :)

Well, I was way off with my guess of 9.7, if mapmyrun is to be believed. I'm pretty happy about this, then. But this just proves that I am a terrible judge of distance.

Three treadmill miles in between dinner and folding piles of laundry that should've been folded on Sunday.

3 treadmill miles, earlier than normal. Charlotte fell asleep at 5:45 while I was feeding her. I am going to have to wake her up now. We'll see how that goes...

I ran in the morning because I took a much needed day off. It was dusting and the streets were coating with just a bit of snow, which forced me to be a bit careful in some spots. All in all, though, it was a nice run at just under 9 minute pace. And then it was off to clean a little bit before going to lunch with my brother's family because they came to visit.

A run with my brother. We had a nice discussion about how he hates his job that turned into a little argument of sorts. But it was all smiles by the end of the run.
