Today was a great day with the babies. They had their first solids (more on that later). We took a long nap together - Vivienne in her crib and Miles slept with Mommy and Daddy. It was at least an hour nap... heaven, just heaven. Then we went to Lake Pine. We had never been there before, but we wanted to check it out. It's a really beautiful little lake nestled in between Cary & Apex, with a 2-mile loop around the lake.
Of course, Jason got up at 6 AM and ran 18 miles averaging a 7:20 pace. I can never come close to what he does, but I wanted to get in a little run for myself. So he walked with the babies at the Lake Pine trail while I ran. I ended up running a full 4 miles, the farthest that I have run since the babies were born (especially without a stroller), and it felt great.
It was really nice to run without two babies and a huge stroller in tow. My average pace was 9:25 with the last mile at 9:11. I am really proud of myself, and relieved to discover that I still have a little bit of horsepower (even though it's nothing compared to Jason's Ironruns).
