I went for a 4 mile run with good friends that made a trip down from Connecticut on Saturday. Sunday my knee felt great. My legs were a different story, but hey, its been a while.
So today I put on my favorite MGr running shirt (a red New Balance with a gray logo), laced up my Mizunos, put the kids in the double stroller, and then started the Nike Plus running app at 6:15 pm. With my music playing (which is rare), away we went.
About a half mile in, I could see my 4-year old nodding through the clear plastic of the stroller. I asked if she was sleeping. She assured me she was not. When I asked her again a few seconds later, there was no response.
Daddy decision time.
Do I keep running and let her sleep this close to bedtime? Or do I cut the run short? Very short?
Well, knowing that any run will change my mood for the positive but messing with a child’s sleep is near deadly, I put on her favorite song (Roar by Katy Perry) to keep her awake and headed straight home.
I logged only 1.2 miles. And I’m okay with that.
So what it was shorter than I thought. I ran. I’m on my way back.
Something is always better than nothing!
