Got home at about 6:15 tonight. Dark, getting colder by the minute.
I knew I had a 3-mile run on the agenda tonight, but the family wanted to be together and they were thinking Rubio's (a fresh-mex chain). They lured me in and I wondered if I would just run late, late tonight.
A quick look on http://www.mapmyrun.com/ showed that the restaurant was 3.5 miles away. I suggested that I run to the place and meet them there. My kids couldn't believe it and my wife just seemed amused.
Snatched up the iPod, flashlight, water bottle, Road I.D. bracelet and hit the road. It was a slower pace than I hoped for (11:23 min/mile), but I ran nearly all of it (only 3 min of walk breaks).
It was motivating for me to know that I was actually running toward my waiting family and some low-cal chicken tacos! Good times.
Tomorrow's workout will be a 45 minute hill-climb, bike ride.
Have a great week everyone.
