Ran with Jacob this morning bright and early at 5:28. I was a little surprised he wanted to get up, the last one or two times we tried something like this he wanted to sleep in. He has to leave for school about 7:00 am so we needed to be done around 6:30. Stella was nice enough to wake me up at 5:00 (5 minutes before my alarm would have gone off) - let her out and fed her, then called Jacob who got right up. We were a little slow the first mile (10:43) meaning I was a little slow, my legs were a little stiff from yesterday's hill repeats but soon loosened up. We ran around the edge of the neighborhood and out the south entrance making our way to Pop Stansell Park. I had a small handheld light which was definitely necessary in some places to see at all and other places for cars to see us (although traffic was pretty light).
Faster return trip and as we approached the last mile, Jacob said he wanted to pick it up, told him I'd try to follow close by. Last mile in 7:32 and back to the house just after 6:30.
In the evening, went to Starkey Park to watch the cross country conference meet. Tom gave it another try but the breathing problems shut him down again. Saw him at the 1 mile marker, coming by in 5:43 but shortly after that had to stop. Glad he gave it his best shot.
