Today we got up early and went to the local 4th of July parade. They live in a fairly small town, but the parade was huge and two hours long! Jones and Shoo had a good time. So good, in fact, that Shoo took his first nap in about four days. Later we’ll probably go to the local festival and then out for fish fry for my mom’s birthday.
Yesterday, dad and I ran the required three miles plus a half mile cool down.
Mile 1 – 8:43
Mile 2 – 8:34
Mile 3 – 9:01
I wasn’t planning on a fast run, but we both felt good and there was a nice breeze. We actually chose to slow down for the last mile and still did it pretty fast. I’ve been so bummed about my lack of speed and stamina lately, that it was nice to actually finish a run and feel happy about it.
