Well-- since it was going to be pushing feeding time and I had fogotten a bottle-- we planned to just go three miles so I could BF when we got back. As some point in the run we had gone 1.7 miles so we decided to loop back (or so we thought)... we kept running and running knowing we were lost and came out on the main road far away from their house. Oops.
I was really enjoying the run. The rain felt good, my body felt good and I secretly enjoyed being lost and having to run further. And because it was dark and we were running along some major roads, we were picking up our pace too. When all was said and done we ran 5.3 miles and my little guy was still sound asleep when we got back. Shoo
Then to top it all off-- our friends had homemade fried icecream dessert waiting for us. You better bet I ate some. (Icecream with cinnamon rolled in chopped up corn flakes and same maple syrup... my mouth is watering just thinking about it). And I woke up my sleepy little guy and fed him! SO it was a fabulous and fun day and a reminder that I can still run and feel good.
Here is a recent pic of the kiddo... He is 20 weeks old!
