I missed running the last two days.  I've been working on applications for MBA school.  7:30 average pace today.  Started out with the whole family and the double stroller, but Peter fell asleep so Lindsay turned around with the boys after 1.2 miles.  Peter is transitioning from an afternoon nap to no nap, so he was tired.  But, we wanted to make sure he didn't sleep too long so that he'd be ready for bed at the usual time.  

I did a mile time trail on the last stretch of trail to the white house that I marked with the wheel.  There was a slight breeze at my back (maybe 5 mph), so that was a slight advantage.  I ran 4:44.76 (the Garmin matched up pretty perfect with my wheel measurements).  Fastest mile I've ever run by 6 seconds...whoohoo!  I'll have to try it on the track one of these days when there is no wind.

Same route as Monday along St. Charles.  A really late team dinner Tuesday night and early breakfast with a customer on Wednesday morning prevented me from running yesterday (without sacrificing additional sleep).  Lots of fried food here in New Orleans...my tummy is ready to return to the normal diet.
