That's how long it took me to run 5.2 miles this morning. In the past, that run would have taken me about 41 minutes....but I'm looking at the bright side....I did almost a full hour of cardio!

Highlights of the run included the following:

Sam screaming "I have to pee, I have to pee!" eleven minutes and eight seconds into the run....When I asked, "Why didn't you try to go before we left, like I asked?" He replied, "I changed my mind." He said he couldn't wait so we stopped and he peed in someones front yard....

Miles 2-4 Sam repeatedly asked if he could get out and walk...I had my iPod so loud that it almost hurt and I could still hear him....

Miles 4-5 felt like it was completely uphill....I basically crawled up them pushing 60 pounds of miserable children....

Miles 5-5.2 I gave in and let Sam run with me....he went about 10 yards before he started screaming and crying, "Mommy, you're too fast, don't leave me!"

Yup, I can run faster than a three year old....

ok. Totally impressed. I'm supposedly fit and in shape, at an ideal weight, not inactive at all. And I could not run 5 miles in an hour while pushing children. You motivate me. Well done!

I have a hard enough time running on my own. I don't think I could do it with two children.
