Met up with Dixie this morning just after 6:30 outside of John Chestnut park. Ran a 7.2 mile loop through the Lansbrook neighborhood. Maintained a pretty good pace, the beginning was tough for me because it usually takes me a while to get going but Dixie is the opposite where he can get going quickly - but might fade out later (although usually doesn't).
Dixie had to get going so I then ran another 1.8 miles inside the park by myself (7:57 pace for the 9 miles including one water break) and met up with my wife and kids. Today was the first annual healthy kids day 1 mile fun run. I ran with Noah (5 years old) and Jenny ran with Andy (8 years old).
I let Noah go at a pace he could handle, he didn't start out too fast, but just kept on going and going, eventually passing a lot of kids who did start too fast. He finished with a 10:20 mile.
Andy did really well too finishing with a 9:40 mile.
Today was a fun day to get 10 miles of running.
