A Different Kind of Long Run

Yesterday, the girls and I headed out for our long run from my house.  Weather.com was calling for snow/rain showers and near freezing temps, so I was a bit surprised when it was sunny and warm enough to run without gloves on as we stepped outside.

We have the Cape Elizabeth Midwinter Classic 10 miler coming up in a couple of weeks and that course is a bit hilly, so we thought our run today should be hillier than we've been doing.  So, hills by my house it was.  Sadly, Carrie couldn't make it, but our friend Karen came up to join us.

Then about 4.5 miles into our run, I happened to look behind us and saw two familiar people running up behind us.  I think they thought they were going to sneak up on us, but they did not.

Our girls run party was crashed by the husbands - mine and Jill's.

really - we are happy here....
the sun was in Jill's eyes and I tried taking this picture a few times



A beautiful day.

awesome running day



Not to mention, after our run, we got to pack up and head out to the Boys and Girls Club to celebrate Izzy's 4th birthday with a Bounce House birthday party.




I cannot believe my baby is going to be 4 years old on Tuesday.  Where has the time gone?
