Yesterday I did two runs, one in the morning and one later in the afternoon. Good practice for HOod to Coast. The second one was with my kids in the double stroller. That is a lot more weight to be pushing so needless to say the four miles was pretty slow, but it didn't feel too bad. Avery kept saying "Ah this is the life!"
The sky was pretty overcast and we were having a cooler than normal day so it didn't feel too bad to run in the afternoon. I think it was only in the low 80s. I am so ready for some low fifties running. I think Cola was enjoying the cooler temps too.
This morning I got up and did a 3 mile bike ride, parked my bike in the ditch and ran 5 miles then biked home. The 5 miles felt the best it has felt in a long time. Not as good as I know it can, but better than it has.
Then I got started on a box of cherries from the western part of the state. I made four batches of jam and canned 5 quarts of cherries. I have a lot of cherry jam now. I also watched 3 and a half episodes from season 3 of Greys Anatomy while I was busy dicing cherries. Boring, but.. YUM
and Rocky's eyes started opening yesterday. She is two weeks old today and really starting to grow! Check out her little half mustache across her nose.
