My last run I wanted to stop a million times. It was all I could do to push myself through the five miles. Today I wanted to stop a few times, but it was a great feeling to keep going. We started off with a 10:21 pace and ended nearly a minute faster. I love those runs. We sprinted what I'm guessing was well under 9:00 minute pace.
Once we got to Ellsworth we were at 3.5 miles. I asked them if they wanted to go 7 or 8 today. Rachael said, "I just want to run." After some discussion we decided to just turn around and complete 7. Later when I wanted to walk, I felt like Team Hoyt, where I was out there for my child who loved every minute of the freedom of being outside. I could endure pain and strife for the love of my child. Keep me going Rachael....
