Meron's First 5.45 Miles

It's been kinda hectic/stressful around these parts this week - so tonight Meron and I got together and decided to send Mommy out with some friends for a girl's night out. She really needed it and I know it helped.

So what did we do, the two of us? What any dad who is hanging with his awesome daughter does of course - we pulled on the shorts, strapped on our running shoes and hit the trails.

I had to do 5 miles per my marathon training schedule so we hit the trails at the mountain and did our thing. I told Laura I would go as far as I could and if Meron got fussy we'd head back. Man - the only time she got fussy was when I stopped! We saw a friend out there running and we stopped to say hi - Meron promptly wrinkled her face up and screamed. All was well once we started rolling again.

Not only did we get my 5 miles in - we added another half on there. She loved it. And of course she was busy stealing hearts as usual. And the B.O.B. worked out great - but WHEW! - that is a serious workout. Meron is now no longer allowed to gain any more weight.

Or I gotta hit the gym.

Sorry about the stress. We are happy to pray.
