This morning, my husband and my youngest son joined me on my run. They rode bikes and I ran to a park about a mile away from our new place. It was a great destination with even better company. I couldn’t stay at the park for long because I was meeting our cross country team at a meet about halfway between the new place and where I work. I ran just over 2.5 by the time I got home and it was much more enjoyable than my runs over the past couple of days. The cross country race is as less enjoyable for our kids. It was warm and hilly, which was challenging for the newer crew but they were courageous and persevered. It really wasn’t a stellar race for anyone on our team but we have had a warm week of practice capped off by a warm meet. We will all enjoy the 1.5 week hiatus before our next meet. Cooler weather would be nice too but Illinois in September makes no promises.
