Running Accomplishments:

I wasn't a big fan of running during my first two decades of life unless I was chasing a ball, puck, frizbee, etc. I started running at the end of 2008 after serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Uruguay for two years. Here is a list of my race results to date:

3 miles with Peter on his bike and the rest alone. I did a 2 mile tempo into the city (5:24, 5:20) and a fast mile on the way home (4:59). It was raining so the ground was slick, and I had to almost slow to a stop to navigate around a few people on the wood bridge, so I'm glad I was able to pull of a sub-5.

Leg weights at the gym and then 10 miles immediately after. Really slow going. I was just a bit under 9 min mile pace.

Not a great night with the kiddos in Cape Cod. Rather than attempting to wrestle Molly back to sleep inside, I took her on a run a 5 am. But, it was cold (36 degrees) and I didn't have a hat or gloves for her. She doesn't like to keep her arms under the blanket in the stroller :). So, we only made it 1.5 miles before turning around (3 total). In the afternoon Lindsay and I ran ... drumroll please ... ONE mile with the boys on their bikes before turning around. They went to the beach with Lindsay while I ran a few more miles.

Last run in Boston.  West along the Charles.  I take off with the Hansen family van early tomorrow morning.  I'll miss 50 degree temperatures during morning runs in late May in Texas.
